#BoutofBook 9.0 Read-a-thon Update and Challenges

Yesterday was the fourth day of the BoutofBooks Read-a-thon. So far I have managed to participate in all of the challenges, and have read 2 books! The only goal that I haven’t done is visit other peoples posts and comment on them… I’m really bad at that. Anyways, these last few days have been extremely good reading days, especially since I haven’t been called into work.


Number of pages I’ve read today:
398 pages of Allegiant + 56 pages of An Abundance of Katherines =
454 pages
Total number of pages I’ve read to date:
632 pages + 454 pages = 1,086 pages
Number of books I’ve read today:
Total number of books I’ve read to date:
The Boy in the Striped Pajamas; Vortex; Allegiant 


Create a Story Challenge

(Hosted by Never Too Fond of Books)

The Challenge:
The rules are simple:

  1. Open your current book to the last page you read.
  2. Using the last word of every line, create a poem or story. You must use every word (but they do not have to be in order), and you may add punctuation as necessary. If a word is split between the end of the line and the beginning of the next one, you may choose whether or not to use it.
  3. Create a post (or tweet or video) that showcases your masterpiece. If you don’t have anywhere else to post it, you can add it as a comment here and use the comment link as your entry.
  4. Add it to the linky on this post.

My Entry: 

Book: An Abundance of Katherines, Page 215
Words: Future, Him, We, Leaned, For, Thinking, Beside, Saying, Going, That, Best, Way

We leaned beside him,
Saying, Thinking,
That going for future, best way


Spine Poetry

(Hosted by The Book Spines)

The Challenge: For this challenge,  use books you currently have available, and arrange the spines to make a poem. Then take a picture, and share it with the web!

My Entry: 


Little Women, the Beginning of Everything,
Burn for burn through the ever night
The Lost Girl,
The Virgin Suicides,
Never let me go.

(Okay, so it isn’t Edgar Allan Poe, but I tried :))
