Hey there, people! How's the reading going? We're on our second last day of the read-a-thon, and frankly, I'm kind of sad about it ending, because then it means my exams are starting!!! Yes, they really are. On Monday. And I'm reading fiction here. Maybe I should've included some of my psych text books in my goals? Hm... But anyway, moving on...
I really like the idea of these mini-challenges during the course of a 'read-a-thon day'. I love reading and all, but sometimes, it's nice to take a short break, and when it's a bookish break - YAY!
I'm pretty excited to be hosting one of today's mini-challenge , and it's actually one of my favourite mini challenge ideas, because my friends and I used to do this all the time, and it brings back so many memories :) Also, I love poetry. Without further ado, here's the challenge:
This challenge has been around for a time now, so i'm sure you know the rules:
- Pick a book! Any book!
- Write the title vertically on a sheet of paper.
- Next to each letter, write an adjective or a line or verse that describes the book.
Next, take a snap, if you can or want. Of the book and your poem, or just the book, or just the poem. Anything works. Or make a picture, like I am, on Photoshop or elsewhere and post it! It's more engaging and fun that way, but it's not a big deal if you dont.
And then, link your poem in the comment section!
Only Bout of Books 8.0 participants can participate. Please make sure you're signed up properly.
Sorry folks, but no giftcard or book prize! I'm saving for an epic giveaway soon, so I don't have a monetary or bookish prize for you today. And I totally understand of that dampens your enthusiasm to participate. But...
At the end of the read-a-thon, that's tomorrow night, I will pick three of the best (in my and my book buddies' opinions) poems, and they will be featured in a whole other post. Also, if I have read the book, the poem will also get included in my review of the book (with due credit and a link back, of course), and if I haven't read it, I'll make sure to read the book, and when I review it, I'll do the same with that too. Does that sound good?
Here's mine, to get you started, and for an example! :)
Get to sharpening your poetry skills! All the best, ya'll! :)
