Book Drunkard

Dewey’s 24 Hours Read-A-Thon, Hour 21 – Read-A-Thon-A-Crostic

14 Comments


Hour 21!  If you’re still going strong, you’re amazing!  Rah, rah, confetti and all that jazz.  To keep your brain sharp for the last few hours of reading, join me for a little challenge I like to call Read-A-Thon-A-Crostic.

It’s simple – take the title of your current book or a book you’ve already finished today and create an Acrostic.  It can be words that describe the book, you can make it into a poem, whatever you want!  You can post it here in comments OR do up a blog post.  Just remember to leave the link so everyone can check it out.  Be creative and have fun!  My two reading buddies, my daughters, will help me choose a winner.

This challenge will run until Hour 23 of the read-a-thon and is open internationally!  The winner can choose a book from Book Depository up to $10 – I will pay and have the book shipped to you.  AND will also receive some bookmarks from me as a bonus!

EDIT:  Thanks to everyone who entered!  The winner isssss:

Beth from Too Fond!

  1. My book is Garden of Madness. My acrostic is Go And Read Don’t End Now! (You get the idea… LOL)

  2. My book is Struck. My acrostic:

    So

  3. BattlePugs = Bizarre Animal Tales Told ln exciting Punny Ultra Good Story!

  4. My book is Love Walked In by Marisa delos Santos and my acrostic is LOVE (Let Our Voices Energized our reading!) Keep on reading !

  5. My book is The Submission by Amy Waldman. Let’s see if I can describe the book acrostically,..

    The aftermath of 9/11
    Has a big impact on
    Everyone who experienced it.

    So people are still struggling two years later
    Unable to let go of their pain and fear
    But in choosing the right memorial
    Might be comforted in their grief.
    In theory, a good idea to have it be anonymous
    So every architect has a fair shot
    So the best one will win without prejudice.
    In reality, a Muslim architect’s design is chosen
    Only people on the jury know the truth
    Now the country is up in arms.

    Hey that was fun! 🙂 Good luck with the end of your readathon, all!

  6. Thank you for the Mini-Challenge! I am reading Bloody Little Secrets by Karly Kirkpatrick. Since the title is long I chose to use just the word Secret.

  12. Martina, thank you for hosting this fun challenge. Even though the ‘thon is over, I thought I’d try my hand at an acrostic. Luckily, I’m currently reading SHANGHAI GIRLS, by Lisa See. So my acrostic is
