Hour Twenty One:

FINALLY!  I completed Voyage of the Dawn Treader which makes my final tally three books.  I accidentally fell asleep for about 30 mins to an hour, but luckily woke up and finished before the read-a-thon ends.  So with three completed I think I’m done for the night and off to get some shut eye.  The wrap up post will be up later today.  Happy Reading to those still up and reading, hang in there!

Hour Fifteen:

Mini-Challenge:  For this challenge, you must turn to page 32 of the book you are currently reading (or the nearest page with text on it) and find the most entertaining phrase to complete the following sentence:

“I would rather read than ________ any day!”

My sentence would read: “I would rather read than sit on the bulwarks any day!

Hour Fourteen:

YAY, I just finished Prince Caspien and now I’ll be moving onto the next book The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.  But first I’m going to check out the current mini-challenge.  PS: The Lion King is on ABC Family right now!

Mini-Challenge:

Take a book you just finished reading or are currently reading and cast the main character only

  • The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian by C.S. Lewis
  • Prince Caspian:  Prince of Narnia who lives with his King Uncle.  Caspian is the rightful King as his Uncle murdered his father.  Now it is up to Caspian to restore Narnia to how it used to be when Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy reigned as the Kings and Queens.
  • benbarnes

    Ben Barnes as Prince Caspian

  • I picked Ben Barnes because he was already cast in the role as Prince Caspian in the Prince Caspian movie and Voyage of the Dawn Treader.  He is the only person I can picture in the role now.

Hour Twelve:

I’ve made it to page 17 pf Prince Caspian and will be breaking for dinner!  But I do anticipate finishing this book before the read-a-thon is over.

Hour Ten:

Mini-Challenge: This challenge hopefully should be easy and fun. Take a picture of the place and/or book you are reading currently and post it somewhere – twitter, your blog, your choice.

Here is a pic of my current book!

And I’m currently on page 57.  Now back to our regularly scheduled program!

Hour Nine:

Starting Prince Caspian of the Narnia series.
