Reading progress update: I've read 261 out of 440 pages.
Dark Force Rising - Timothy Zahn

 

I'm really unsure how this trilogy ended up on the SF/F list that I'm reading.  One the best?  Really?

 

While reading it, I am never immersed, I'm always conscious that I'm reading.

The Bungalow Mystery - finished reading

Sorry I've been absent the last several days. I'm using the Dia de los Muertos book task to further my Nancy Drew Project, and to simultaneously read and compare two versions of the same book requires some focused concentration on my part. I'm done reading both 1930 and 1960 versions and now just need to write it up and start posting. 

The Bungalow Mystery - P.M. Carlson,Russell H. Tandy,Carolyn Keene  The Bungalow Mystery - Carolyn Keene  The Bungalow Mystery #3 - Carolyn Keene  

There are only 2 text versions, but I love the new cover art on the most recent printing.

Door /Dec 21 Winter Solstice
Stick Man by Julia Donaldson (7-Sep-2009) Paperback - Julia Donaldson

Winter Solstice / Yuletide (December 21): Read any book that takes place in December OR with ice or snow on the cover OR that revolves around the (summer or winter) equinox OR a collection of poetry by Hafez.

Stick Man is a sweet book with stick man played out the role as a stick but all he wants is to go home.

Door 1: Día de los Muertos (Task 2) - Share your favorite gravestone epitaph (you know you have one).

 

Door 2: Guy Fawkes Night (Task 1) - Burn a book in effigy.  Not that anyone of us would do such a thing, but if you HAD to, which book would be the one you’d sacrifice to the flames (gleefully or not)?

Door 2: Guy Fawkes Night (Task 2) - List your top 3 treasonous crimes against books.  Not ones you’ve committed, but the ones you think are the worst.

Door 4: Diwali (Task 1) - Share a picture of your favorite light display.

Door 4: Diwali (Task 4) - During Diwali, people pray to the goddess Lakhshmi, who is typically depicted as a beautiful young woman holding a lotus flower. Find 5 books on your shelves (either physical or virtual) whose covers show a young woman holding a flower and share their cover images.

Door 4: Diwali (Book) - Read a book with candles on the cover or the word “candle” or “light” in the title; OR a book that is the latest in a series; OR set in India; OR any non-fiction book that is ‘illuminating’ (Diwali is Sanskrit for light/knowledge and row, line or series)
