Day five of the Bout of Books read a thon is officially here and we are nearing the end. I hope to finish my book that I am reading before then, but we'll see! At the same time I'm trying to savor my book because it's one of those that is perfect for a rainy day. It also reminds me quite a bit of another one of my favorite books, Airborn by Kenneth Oppel.

Other Comments: So close to that 1,000 page mark! I'm liking this book so far, but I just find myself getting distracted while reading it. There were two challenges again today! Hurrah! The first one was to Recreate a Cover, hosted by Spines and Covers. Now, keep in mind when you look at the cover that all I have is a terrible quality backwards webcam. And ok, maybe it's also that I'm a bad artist. Haha.
|I took great pleasure in ripping this drawing to shreds, I assure you.|
1/4 of Airborn by Kenneth Oppel cover!
Sorry about the glare and the bad drawing and bad handwriting and backwards cover and the small size and the funky arms and faces. I drew this in about two minutes because I wanted to do the challenge but at the same time drawing stuff really frustrates me. So that was the end product.
...Anyway, ranting aside, there was also a second challenge hosted by Christian Bookshelf Reviews and it was the Book Chain Challenge. The Challenge was to connect the books by last/first word. Words like "The" "A" or "An" did not count for this challenge. The books I chose for this challenge were...
"The Gray Wolf Throne" by Cinda Williams Chima*
"Throne of Glass" by Sarah J. Maas*
"The Glass Castle" by Jeanette Walls
"Castle in the Air" by Diana Wynne Jones **
* = book I have read in the past 12 months
** = on my TBR
....and that is where I hit a dead end. Oh well?
So, I might fix one of these challenges later, but I guess we shall see about that. Anyway, see you soon with an update on my progress tomorrow!
