Hello Read-a-thon challenge takers! How are you guys doing? Has your vision started to blur yet? Do you have your coffee by your side? Have the characters you're reading about started to converse with you in waking dreams? If not, there's still time.
On to the challenge...
(Drumroll, drumroll, etc.)
Your mission, which you MUST accept, is to turn to page 23 of the book you're 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 night!"
Post your sentence in the comments section for all of our amusement! Fight through the exhaustion! We know you can do it!!
Don't forget to mention which book your new sentence of awesomeness comes from! There will be a prize for one winner (the choice of three books from the Readathon organizers and contributers. You can check out the the list of prizes here)
Happy reading! ;)
Shel and Monica
(Update 2:30: Monica Look! Look at all these *comments*! I'm feeling flush with success, Shel, how about you? Or... or maybe that's the fatigue talking....)
(Update 3:30: Monica Keep them coming, guys! We're going to keep it going for another hour and a half, which is plenty of time for y'all to start a *second* book!)
Update 5:01: Shel Stop! STOP NOW! 92 responses!!! Gad zooks, readers. You're all awesome!!!!! We'll announce the winner soon. I must call Monica..and possibly summon her back from the warm and loving arms of Lady DeathSleep.
(Update 5:19: Monica I know, aren't they so awesome? I want to keep them all for our very own, like a gigantic posting reading posse, but... I am not under any illusions. We all know they're in it for the FANTASTIC PRIZES THANK YOU READATHON!)
