Bout of Books Readathon Day 4

Wednesdays Roundup

Number of books read today: 1

Total number of books read: 1

Number of pages read: 419

Total number of pages read 908

Time spent listening to audiobooks: 30 minutes

The first challenge today comes from Writing My Own Fairy Tale and it is the Double Date Book Challenge. Basically, you pick two books that you would recommend people read together and explain why. I’m slightly cheating for this challenge – I’m going to pick two series, which are:






His Dark Materials by Phillip Pullman & The Chronicles of Narnia by C. S Lewis. I chose these two series because, not only are they both brilliant, but they both present two extremely different views on religion and God. The contrast and difference between these two fantasy books are astounding, and the beliefs of the respective authors clearly shine through.

The second challenge of the day comes from Pen in Her Hand
and is the Poem Challenge.

You have to choose a novel from any genre, print or ebook, that you’re reading or have finished. I used The BFG by Roald Dahl. Then you pick a number between 1 and 10. I’m going to pick 6

1. Flip to a page at random and then count down the number you chose in lines. Then count in that number of words. Repeat until you have 14 words.

Here are my words: her, work, dreadful, began, well, murder, crunch, limbs, said, skimmed, was, and, beanstalk, traffic

2. Delete two words and add in two words of your own. I deleted the words skimmed and beanstalk. I added the words He and It.

He said her work began well,

It was dreadful;

murder, crunch, limbs and traffic

  1. Hi Laura,
    What a fun book to choose! I like the contradiction between what “he” said and the narrator’s judgment that it was dreadful. And what a great word dreadful is. I was hoping you’d include that when I saw your initial list.
