Just 12 hours left to go in this readathon weekend and it’s been a wonderful one for me so far. I got a chance to hang out with one of my favs yesterday while we both ‘thoned, and my mom has been reading along with me as well. We’ve had a fire crackling all weekend, stew in the crockpot, and a sleepy golden retriever to keep our feet warm.
I hope everyone has had a great readathon as well, and is looking forward to this last home stretch. Speaking of stretching, right now, get up and do some jumping jacks, touch your toes, do a little downward dog, just something to get the blood moving. If you have an audiobook, why not take a quick 15 minute walk around the block? I’ll wait…go ahead.
Now that you’ve woken up a bit, how about announcing the winner for the Hour 30 – Show Your Shelfie challenge? The (completely random) winner is:
Since you’re hanging out by your bookshelves anyway and you’ve already woken up your body with that walk, how about a challenge to wake up your brain? For this check-in, take a look at your books and create a short piece of poetry using the titles on the spine. The vast majority of my books are in storage right now, so I don’t quiet have enough to create an example, but here’s a great one, thanks to Brain Pickings:
Pretty profound, huh?
To win, comment with a link to a photo of your book spine poetry. As with the previous challenges, one random person will win your choice of a $10 Starbucks gift card, $10 Amazon gift card or a book (US$10 or less) from Book Depository. You have until the next check in at Hour 42.
