Mini-Challenge: Six Word Celebration!

In the spirit of six-word memoirs or six-word stories, I thought Dewey's Read-a-Thon to be a perfect opportunity to offer a six-word celebration to show our appreciation to Dewey for starting this thing in 2008 and to our ongoing book blogger community for making it such a monumental event and such a great time twice per year.

Your challenge is to creative a six-word celebration of Dewey's Read-a-Thon. Go on, you know you want to!

And, I should mention that there is incentive. The winner of this mini-challenge: the most innovative, colorful, and celebratory in six words will win a book of his or her choice of up to $15 from the Book Depository.

My family will act as a totally objective and uninterested panel of judges.

What are you waiting for? This challenge runs from 9am to noon Central Time. Add the link to your Six-Word Celebration to the Mr. Linky below or add it to the comments area.
