1. Hosted by Jenn at Book Crazy
My favorite book is A Northern Light...
...and I choose this image because a large portion of the novel takes place in a cute, lakeside inn. This is somewhat how I imagine it to look.
2. Hosted by Kate at I Just Wanna Sit Here and Read!
Kate asked us to connect a chapter of our current read to a song.
I am choosing Three Rivers Rising. While it doesn't have chapters, per se, there are many sections. I, therefore, am choosing the section that describes the flood hitting Johnstown and the surrounding areas.
The song I choose is Breakdown by Jack Johnson. I think that if the residents knew what was coming, they would want time to stop - or breakdown - so that they could have more time with their family. One of the lines is "Then I could take a walk around/And, see what there is to see." And think this perfectly describes what the citizens would do if they could have had one last chance - look around their town and homes, taking it all in before it got swept away.
3. Hosted by the family at The Eager Readers
They have asked us to post about (a) our favorite fictional couples and (b) a crossover couple we would love to see.
That's how I'm doing for Day 1 of my first ever Read-a-Thon! If I get more reading done after this post, I will include it in tomorrow's.
