Dewey's Read-a-thon: a running update

Time to start reading!

To keep things easy for myself I'll be keeping a running update on what I'm reading etc in one post. First, here's a picture of the books I'll be choosing between the next 24 hours. I won't get through all of them, but I like having a selection (it might change as the hours pass).For reading breaks I have some podcasts from Stuff You Missed in History Class, Legend of the Seeker DVDs, and a scarf to knit. :)


 Let the reading begin! :)

14:15: Participated in the Hour 1 Opening Meme.
15:30: Participated in the Hour 2 Mini Challenge: Coffee or tea?
17:20: Finished reading Fables vol. 20: Camelot. I love that series.

See you next time?

Ukens smakebit: Mockingjay

Den ukentlige utfordringen hos Flukten fra virkeligheten: del ett par setninger fra en bok du leser nå på bloggen din.

Denne uken er Astrid Terese vikar.

Som en del av Dewey's Read-a-ton har jeg lest Mockingjay av Suzanne Collins og min valgte smakebit er det siste avsnittet i boka (mulig spoilere for de som ikke har lest boka!):

I'll tell them how I survive it. I'll tell them that on bad mornings, it feels impossible to take pleasure in anything because I'm afraid it could be taken away. That's when I make a list in my head of every act of goodness I've seen someone do. It's like a game. Repetitive. Even a little tedious after more than twenty years.

But there are much worse games to play.

Mini Challenge: Book Spine Poetry

Book spine poetry has been one of my favourite challenges every time I've participated in the Read-a-ton. This time it's Ticket to Anywhere hosting the challenge.

My contribution:

the unfinished angel
return to me

Mini Challenge: Book Staging

On the Wings of Books is holding a fun mini challenge: staging books. You take a picture of one of the books you are reading for the read-a-ton with something related to the book.

I chose to stage Mockingjay:

This almost became Book on Fire.

The bracelet was bought at Art Rosella in Skagen, Denmark this spring.

Hour 4 Mini Challenge: Quotable quotes

Breatheable Inc is holding the hour 4 mini challenge: Quotable quotes. I chose a quote from Snow White in Fables vol. 20: Camelot by Bill Willingham et.al.

Snow White is a tough character who will protect her own at any cost.
