Read-a-thon Mini-Challenge, Hour 4



The task: Grab one of your favorite books and post one of your favorite quotes from it. This challenge is open for the next two hours, ending at 11:00 a.m. pacific time, which is the very end of hour 5. This mini-challenge is open to Readers and Cheerleaders.


The prize: Ruined by Reading - Lynne Sharon Schwartz and a set of dishcloths



Here's one of my favorite quotes from one of my favorite books, East of Eden by John Steinbeck.



"No story has power, nor will it last, unless we feel in ourselve that it is true and true of us." p. 266

What a great mini-challenge! And I love that quote from East of Eden: I really need to reread that soon. :) I chose a quote from Persuasion; you can read it here.

Also, I am terrified of Athena winning because she will see how lacking my knitting is! She's my knitting guru.

Did I somehow miscalculate hours? I thought the read-a-thon was starting at 9 a.m. Pacific time (which is 10 a.m. for me in Mountain time). That would make 11 a.m. PST the end of hour 2, not hour 5. Help! I'm confused.

Dewey: Athena's that's good? I have to see what these dishcloths look like. Maybe I should learn to knit.

My favorite quote from the book I just read (True Light by Terri Blackstock) is "To whom much has been given, much is required.". It makes me realize how much God expects of me.

Jill, you are the best!

Samantha said...

It seems as though I've won this mini-challenge. Dewey said to let you know, so you could send the book. I couldn't find an e-mail address, so if you can mail me at Samanthakathy at gmail dot com, I can send you my address.

Loved this challenge by the way! Very interesting to read people's quotes.

Trish said...

I'm unsure if this one is still open because it says 11 pacific which is hour 3 in my book--which was a long time ago. Am I totally confused??

Anyway, regardless I did a post:
