Dewey’s 24 Hours Read-A-Thon, Hour 7 – Read-A-Thon-A-Crostic

48 Comments


I’m Martina aka Book Drunkard and I will be hosting a mini-challenge for you!

Hour 7!  I hope you’re all still going strong.  I’m sure you are – it’s hard to keep a good reader down!  If you need a quick break in your day, how about a mini-challenge?

If you participated in the Read-a-thon in April, you might remember my mini-challenge, Read-A-Thon-A-Crostic.  I created my own here just to give you an idea.  Because I love books so much, I used the word “HEART”.

The same rules apply:  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!  (If your book title is totally HUGE, you can just use the first letter of each word.  I’m easy! (just not cheap..))

You might like to know about the prize, eh?  (Yes, I’m Canadian!)  The winner of Read-A-Thon-A-Crostic will win the book of their choice up to $10 from Book Depository.  Second place will receive a collection of book marks.  First place will be chosen my me and by read-a-thon partner, my 11 year old daughter, Brooklyn.  Second place will be determined by Random.org.  Open internationally!  You have 3 hours until the winners are chosen.  I can’t wait to see what you all come up with!

  11. He44o to the lovely host.
    Here, I will cheer for the character in my book… They still have a lot of danger to go trough.

    The book is: The tube riders, C. Ward

    The
    Hell
    Ends

    There, where you decide you are not
    Unable, you are not weak, you are not
    Broken, tired, dead.
    Even when they hunt you,

    Ride you, scare you,
    Island of Mega Britain will hear your voice,
    Dead will cheer your life, whispers and sighs
    Echoing trough the tunnels.
    Ride will take you further, to where
    Sun can rise again.

    🙂 Good reading everyone!!
    Greetings from Croatia.

    Having read this book
    Unique in every way

  38. Since my title is quite long “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” by J.K. Rowling, I decided to use the first letters of both the title and the author, and I decided to list some of the beasts covered in this fun book.

    Flobberworm
    Basilisk
    Acromantula
    Werewolf
    Troll
    Fairy
    Tebo
    Jarvey
    Kappa
    Red Cap

    That’s it 🙂 I hope this was fine.

  41. Heyaaaaa~ I’m really enjoying this reading challenge. It was entertaining to make! I hope you’re having a good read-a-thon yourself! Good Luck! My book title was The Orange Houses by Paul Griffin.

    Tuning out everyone.
    Home stands still.
    Everywhere I am.

    Outside we paint,
    Ready to run.
    Another day,
    Never forgetting her name.
    Giving gifts made from newspaper.
    Each of us burdens a pain.

    Here we are together,
    Outstretched hands,
    United as a family,
    Smiling at one another.
    Everyone judging us but,
    Silently, we stand our ground.

  42. The
    Horrible
