Book Appetit! Dewey Read-A-Thon Mini Challenge!
Hey read-a-thoners!!!! Watcha reading??? Are you getting a little hungry while reading?
My book club meets each month at someones home and we try to bring food to go with the book we just read. It is a lot of fun to see how creative we can get! For instance when we read the book ROOM by Emma Donoghue, there was Jack’s birthday cake as described in the book, Jack’s favorite meal of macaroni and cheese, ma’s favorite treat and on the creative side – we had pigs in a blanket renamed for the book “Jack in a rug”. (To get that one you have to have read the book).
Another example would be… say you are reading Chocolat. Well, of course you would be whipping up some tasting chocolat concoctions! Or… you are reading The 19th wife which has to do with Iowa and a funeral… you would always do funeral type foods that were popular in Iowa at the time….
Anyhoo.. for this mini challenge if you choose to accept it, I will be asking you to come up a menu to go along with your current read or one of the books in your reading pile for today. Now… imagine that you have friends coming over to discuss the book with you. You have prepared food and beverage items to go with your meeting (money…. is no object). And what I need to see from you is:
1. Book title and author
2. The menu, food, beverage, you can even go as far as background music, decorations…. have fun with this!
3. You will receive an additional entry if you create a drink to go with your book event and give it a name
4. While you are welcome to post your response in the comments below, you will receive an additional entry if you leave a comment AND link up to a post about this on your own blog. (Linky available below)
SO…. Swedish Chef…. what are they playing for?
A winner will be chosen at the end of this mini challenge time using Random.org and will be announced here that they have won a $20 Amazon gift card that will be sent by email today to the winner! **If more than 40 participate in this challenge, a runner up $10 Amazon card will be added.
