I spot the hills
With yellow balls in autumn.
I light the prairie cornfields
Orange and tawny gold clusters
And I am called pumpkins.
-- excerpted from "Theme in Yellow" by Carl Sandburg
Unscramble the twenty book titles and then leave a link to your post. I will choose two winners to receive bookish favor bags as prizes. Which means, each winner will get one book and other book-related items. I will ship the prizes anywhere. As far as I know, the challenge is open for three hours. If that is not the case, I will find out and pass on the correct information.
Of Pride, like Narcissus, you will pay the heavy price.I presume the eighth volume will tie everything together and explain the mysterious homeless woman who appears in each story?
Of Sloth, like Paris, you will succumb to the slow venom.
Of Gluttony, like Theseus, you will know the foul torment.
Of Lust, like Orpheus, you will bite the bitter fruit.
Of Greed, like Prometheus, you will suffer the eternal punishment.
Of Wrath, like Pandora, you will be the fatal instrument.
- Post a picture on your blog of a current or past pet.
- Tell us your favorite animal book and then write a sentence using the name of the main character and only the first letter of that name. For example: If my favorite animal book was Wesley the Owl, I could write - Wesley works wildly with witches who wander. You could also use the "O" instead...Owls overestimate overeating. Make it short and sweet or challenge yourself and make it as long as you can.
PARADE (WITH FIREWORKS) opens in 1923, as Italy is pulling itself from the wreckage of the first World War while unknowingly plummeting toward another. The nation seemed to be holding its breath, and the slightest perceived transgression could result in violence. On the evening of the Feast of the Epiphany, it did, causing one man to choose between political standing and his very own family. The YALSA Great Graphic Novels for Teens nomination is in of itself a prestigious accolade for a very deserving title.Overall, I thought Parade (With Fireworks) was very well done. It's overly talky in places, yes, but it's interesting, relevant talk. The illustrative style is a bit cartoony, but does a good job conveying the action of the story. I especially liked the last four pages, which say everything that needs to be said about Paolo's future without undue explication.
For this challenge, you will be creating a Book Puzzle. Essentially, this is a series of pictures, graphics, or photos that you put together that will describe a book title.I've decided to do an old favorite of mine:
I'm keeping this one simple - I want a picture of books - show me a book shelf, your tbr pile, your nightstand piled with books, your prized ARCs, whatever, just post a picture of some books during the 12pm - 3pm EST time-slot and link here and you're entered.
What were some of your favorite children’s books when you were younger? Do you have any new favorites now that you’re an adult? Have you included any children’s or YA titles in your Read-A-Thon stack this year?Pretty sure my much wrinkled and worn sets of the Anne and Little House books are a good indicator I was an Anne and Laura girl. I loved their spirit and imagination (and all the little domestic details). I still re-read these series every year or so and it's like revisiting old friends.
