I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

Saturday Snapshot & Quote

Saturday Snapshot

M and I went to our county fair. There was a table decoration display/contest (girl scouts?) and one of the categories was "Bring on the Books". I saw tables decorated based on Hawaii, The Secret Garden, Twenty Leagues Under the Sea, Gone with the Wind, and Fahrenheit 451. I loved Hawaii, three others were nice but Fahrenheit 451 was disturbingly good.

 I saw my first book related table on one side and when I came around to this side, it was obvious which book this was by the background.

It's the details really. The fire boots salt and pepper shaker, the extinguisher and the, gasp, burned books! I think there were several banned books in the pile in back but it wouldn't surprise me if they were from the book, other stories that people were living.

Check out the table legs!

Oh, each table also has a menu to go along with the theme. This menu was grilled this and flame-broiled that...can you read it?

dang, wish I could remember what her score was!

I love the book themed tables! Were they for some sort of prize competition?

I love this! What a great contest idea. And Fahrenheit 451 is a perfect theme.

Here's my Snapshot.

How fun. Sadly Farenheit 451 is still in my TBR.
