Lit Vogue

This one goes out to all the readathoners...

Lit Vogue, inspired (and aided and abetted by) maDAWNna of She Is Too Fond of Books

Read, read
Read, read

Go with the flow
Go with the flow

Come on, read
Let your eyes move across the page, hey, hey hey
Come on, read
Let your mind merge with the book, you know, you can do it

Look around everywhere you turn is bookstores
They're everywhere that you haunt
You try everything you can to resist
The lure of books that you want

When all else fails and you long to be
Something better than you are today
I know a place where you can get away
It's called a bookstore, and here's what it's for, so

Come on, read
Let your eyes move across the page, hey, hey hey
Come on, read
Let your mind merge with the book, you know, you can do it

All you need is your own imagination
So use it that's what it's for
Go inside, for your finest inspiration
Your dreams will open the door

It makes no difference if you're black or white
If you're a boy or a girl
If the story's good, it will give you new life
You're a superstar, yes, that's what you are, you know it

Come on, read
Let your eyes move across the page, hey, hey hey
Come on, read
Let your mind merge with the book, you know, you can do it
Come on, read
Let your mind merge with the book, you know, you can do it

Reading's where you find it
Not just at school in English Lit
Plot is in the story
That's where I find the glory
As long as it's not too gory
So get on over to the book store.

Come on, read
Let your mind merge with the book, you know, hey, hey, hey
Come on, read
Let your mind merge with the book, you know, you can do it

Read, read
Read, read
A book
A book
Read, read

Read, read
Reading's where you find it
Read to succeed
Read, read
Reading's where you find it
Go with the flow

Edgar Allen Poe and Stowe
Dickinson and Defoe
Maya Angelou, Jack Kerouac
On the cover of a trade paperback

J.K. Rowling, Stephen King
Both are the real thing
Murakami and the Gages
Roald Dahl, words from sages

They have style, they write pages
Anne Rice earned good wages
Anne, Emily, Charlotte, too
Jane Austen, we love you

Ladies with an attitude
Fellows that were in the mood
Don't just stand there, let's get to it
Read a book, there's nothing to it

Read, read
Read, read

Let your eyes move across the pages
Ooh, you've got to just
Let your mind go with the flow
Ooh, you've got to

Let your eyes move across the pages
Ooh, you've got to just
Let your mind go with the flow
Ooh, you've got to

Let your eyes move across the pages
Ooh, you've got to just
Let your mind go with the flow
Ooh, you've got to

Let your eyes move across the pages
Ooh, you've got to just
Let your mind go with the flow

Great job! Now I have to listen to the song so I can remember all the little nuances.

In a real sense, people who have read good literature have lived more than people who cannot or will not read. It is not true that we have only one life to live; if we can read, we can live as many more lives and as many kinds of lives as we wish. ~S.I. Hayakawa

The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.
~St. Augustine

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.
~Mark Twain
