Hour 12: Midway-survey!
- How are you doing? Sleepy? Are your eyes tired?
- What have you finished reading?
- What is your favorite read so far?
- What about your favorite snacks?
- Have you found any new blogs through the read-a-thon? If so, give them some love!
Oh sht! FOOD! Uhm..I guess the apple and cookie I had? 😆 I STILL HAVE MY CHOCOLATE! o/
Most definitely! I’ll get back on that, gotta make a list! Because link-love!
I’m forgetting all the things, basically. Because I forgot that I should continue my medication when I’m not sleeping 🙄 .
Hour 13 mini-challenge: Best of Your Reading Year!
The challenge for the hour is to share some of your best from your reading year and why. The idea is to pick at least 3 of the categories below and share your favorites and why. Hopefully, everyone will discover a new author..book…or maybe even genre.
Unfortunately I haven’t read much this year, but I will recommend these:
- The solitude of prime numbers by Paolo Giordano. Best Main characters and..something something human psyche. +Nerdiness.
- Norwegian wood by Haruki Murakami, Best…Setting? And whatever genre this is.
- Despite that everyone has read it and such, conclusively: The Fault in our Stars Best YA Book, Best Cover, Best Romance, Best storyline and most definitely most favorite author of my reading year. (And beyond, really)
Hour 14 Challenge: AudioBook Dream Date
Welcome to Hour 14 folks! In an effort to keep you from falling asleep, I am asking you to setup your audiobook dream date! Super simple: Pick a book and assign who would be your dream narrator!
Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy by Alan Rickman. Or Neil Gaiman. 😀 Though I would very much enjoy one of the vlogbrothers reading, any book! I still want that audiobook from John Green narrated by himself! 😀
Just keep readin’, just keep readin’, just keep readin’ readin’ readin’. What do we do? –
Six word celebrations on Estella’s revenge!
Your challenge is to creative a six-word celebration of Dewey’s Read-a-Thon and post it in the comments section with a relevant email address, blog address, OR Twitter handle. It’s that easy!
Went for milk, returned to yoghurt!
You may think on that one for a while 😉
Two challenges! First Have You Seen That Meme? from My Little World and then Bookish Travel from A Reader’s Respite!
Make your own meme with a literary theme
So here’s my challenge. Tell me about the best location a book has taken you to. Perhaps a book really did inspire you to physically go some where. Tell me. Or perhaps a book took you somewhere in your mind so completely that you don’t even need to visit in real life. Tell me.
For a bookish travel I might have something a little different. When I just got my ‘Wreck this journal‘ and read the prompt “Climb up high, drop the journal” I realized I was going to stay in an apartment on the 24th floor in Berlin soon. And thus it traveled. And I made sure I could drop it down!
Damage? Surprisingly just a couple of bends and cracks!
After that I taped it up, and mailed it home! 😀

Show It Off 2.0! by Dead Book Darling!
Here’s your challenge: I want you to show off a book (or books) from your library that you are extremely proud of. The unique, signed or simply dear-to-your-heart editions that you’d grab if there were a fire.

So, my challenge for you is the following: pick one or more of the things above to try and sometime in the next three hours, come back and leave me a comment letting me know what you did. That’s it!

Real Rebus mini-challenge by Reading My Way Through Life
This mini-challenge is the Real Rebus challenge!
Find objects around your house that put together make out the title of a book. It may be one of the books you’ve read for your challenge, but it doesn’t have to be.Post the photos on your blog and leave a link in Mr. Linky below.
For a second chance at the prize, guess these real rebuses I’ve prepared for you! 🙂
I am not going to attempt to solve the Rebus’ with impaired cognitive functionality (though my language center seems reasonably fine) but I’ll make one!
Turn to page mini-challenge by Reflectioons of a Bookaholic
For this challenge, you must turn to page 32 of the book you are currently reading (or the nearest page with text on it) and find the most entertaining phrase to complete the following sentence:
“I would rather read than ________ any day!”
For example, mine might say: “I would rather read than spend hours at that windows, staring at the garden any day!”
I love these challenges! Let’s-a-go!
-giggles- The first sentence I noticed was “Have no sex feelings about you”. But, let’s continue on! Hm. Rather boring page. Does it help that it’s Sookie’s Fae young great-uncle? Who looks like her brother Jason? I bet it does, you perv! Or “not doing the fairy sleepathon of comfort anymore”
Let’s just stick with it!
“I would rather read than [we’re] not doing the fairy sleepathon of comfort anymore, any day!”
Reading Soundtrack mini-challenge by A girl that Likes Books (though her URL is greenmushroom1up soo..Let’s-a-go! 😀 ) (No, I did not see that coming 😆 )
Make a post where you display the book of your own choosing, the song that for you goes with said book (ideally with a link to the song) and your own explanation as to why this song is the song for your book. Don’t forget to link to this post on your post ;). Be original, the songs in the soundtrack of a movie adaptation do not count.
I choose Anders de la Motte’s [game] and pair it with Herman van Veen’s “Opzij”. It’s Dutch, but it’s about being in a terrible rush, no time to stand still, talk. “We must run , jump, fly, dive, fall, get up, go on!” The main character has to do that too! 😉 He’s constantly rushed, by himself or with external pressure.
Woohoo for just keep reading! I hope you’re having a great time. I love the idea of Alan Rickman reading Hitchhiker’s Guide!
Team Otter Cheerleader, Joy
It would work! And hey, he’s already done a part of it! Marvin the paranoid android! He watches over my 404-page =’)
Keep up your cheering, you might’ve out-spammed me with your blog visits! 😀
Ooh, I love your idea of having links to different hours in your post. My check-in post is getting unmanageably long! And your book tower is completely adorable. I love how many of us have cats keeping us company 🙂
Me too! And it’s really easy to do! Also pretty convenient for linking up challenges and not having 24 posts 😛 . I still split them in two though, it’s full enough as is!
It works just like a regular link, but instead of you do ! To link just use your post’s URL+#[name]!
One of those things I wish I learned sooner!
And yes, a lot of us have cats! Sleeping on our books when we want to read =’) I started using the hashtag #catladiesofreadathon on twitter and instagram because of this 😆 . They’re nice and soft and warm, but during the hours we’re losing energy it’s traitorous! They are nice and soft and warm and purr! Purrfect to fall asleep on!
Brilliant rebus! Thanks for playing along 🙂
Thank you! It was fun! If I had some fake fangs lying around I’d interview them with a muddler. I also thought of getting some fake flies and give one a crown. But alas, no fake flies!
Thank you for hosting it, it was fun! 😀
