Welcome to all the Readers from the Spring's Serenity Read-a-Thon. This is a week-long read-a-thon, so if you're not signed up yet, you may still have time! Just hop over to The True Book Addict to sign up!
I'm hosting my very first mini challenge. A few weeks ago, I came across a blog called The Page 69 Test. From what I've read, this test was suggested in a book by John Sutherland called How to Read a Novel: A User's Guide. Basically, he says if you're browsing books and want to find out if you'd be interested in a particular book, you should read page 69. This should give you an idea as to whether the book is right for you.
So, my mini challenge, should you choose to accept it, is for you to go to page 69 of the book that you're currently reading, and leave a comment ~ or write a blog post and leave a link to it in the comments ~ telling us about page 69 of your book. What's happening on the page and does it impact the way you feel about the book? If you read more than one book, feel free to come back and comment for each book you read. I'll draw a winner at the end of the read-a-thon.
If you're concerned about reading ahead in your book, just wait until you're up to page 69, and then enter the mini challenge. The challenge will be open throughout the entire read-a-thon. A winner will be drawn using random.org.
The winner will get a paperback copy of Last Snow by Eric Van Lustbader, courtesy of the publisher.
Good luck and have fun reading!
