It’s Courtney from Stiletto Storytime here. And I am happily going to be your guide through all things readathon for the next three hours. For those of you who have never been to my blog my tag line has always been “Just like stilettos, reading is always in style.” My blog name came from my early days as a librarian when everyone would tease me about wearing stilettos while I did storytime. Apparently this was not the norm but I’m a girly girl and just because I was sitting behind a reference desk did not mean I could not be glamorous. And so I thought I would go back to my roots and inject a little va-va-voom into your reading for Hour 5.
There are many tips that are discussed by us all pre-readathon. You’ve seen snacking suggestions, stay awake secrets and book choice strategies all shared in the last few days. But what about making readathon a little glam & fabulous? Here are a few little snippets to consider for making readathon simply fabulous…who said reading can’t be sexy?
- I’m a bubble bath girl and nothing makes me happier that a big tub of fragrant bubbles and a good book. So if you need a change of location…ever consider the bath tub? I always stock bath goodies for readathon. For relaxation try lavender and to stay awake something fresh. My favorites are LUSH’s French Kiss and Green bath bubble bars.
- Wear something that makes you feel beautiful. Even if it’s your favorite pajamas…work it!
- Whether it’s a glass of wine, a cup of tea or a plate of munchies…make your snacking a little special. That favorite mug, a pretty but seldom used china plate or even a sprig of flowers on the side. Make it special.
So what do you do or will you do to make your reading stylish?
