Hour 5 Readathon Mini Challenge: Book Sentence

April 21, 2012 Readathon 28

Welcome to your hour 5 Read-a-Thon Challenge!

Your challenge is to make a book sentence.  What is a book sentence you ask?  Well… a book sentence is a sentence made up of book titles!

Here are two examples:
1 – My sweet Audrina we’ll meet again before I say goodbye.
2 – America hold tight the second time around.

For this challenge you will use book titles to form a complete sentence, and then take a picture of your sentence and post it to your blog, facebook or twitter account and then come back and fill out the linky with your link. 

* Because you’ll be taking a picture, no ebooks allowed.  Sorry!
* Book titles ONLY.  You may not use author names or add/remove words to a title.  This is what makes the challenge a challenge, verbs are hard to come by!
* Use a minimum of 3 books.
* Take a picture and post to your blog, facebook or twitter account.
* Come back here and leave your link in the correct linky

It’s ok if the sentences don’t make perfect sense, that’s part of the fun!

I’ll be offering 2 prizes for this challenge
* Prize 1 for US Readers – Partials by Dan Wells
* Prize 2 for International Readers (open to anywhere The Book Depository ships to) – one book, up to $15 from The Book Depository

The challenge will be open for 3 hours (Hours 5-7).

Please make sure you enter the correct linky!

US READERS USE THIS LINKY! (Partials by Dan Wells)

INTERNATIONAL READERS USE THIS LINKY! (1 book up to $15 from The Book Depository)

I’ll be picking 1 winner randomly from each group and I will notify you on your blog/twitter/facebook (where ever you posted your picture). 

Good Luck!

    I don’t have a blog but I posted my picture to my facebook page. My sentence isn’t perfect, but it works. :)

    Super-fun challenge!!! I posted mine, but then had regrets since I used “Girl of Nightmares” in it and it outed me to the fact I haven’t mailed it to you yet! :( LOL Perhaps I will use one of my breaks to mail it ::hides face in shame::

    I’ve always liked this challenge. I had several sentences to chose from but finally went with “My Fair Captain Snared The Vampire’s Heart” Sounds like a good premise for a book too!

    Kimberly, thank you for hosting this great challenge! I have always loved this idea of book sentences, but have never actually done one. You and the entries have all inspired me to try. :)
