Day Two, Sunday, July 12:
(All times are Brisbane local time)
I am participating in the July 2015 Trees of Reverie Read-a-thon. This is the Day 2 Challenge post.
Challenge: Spine Poetry
Today’s challenge is to create a poem using book spines. Here’s what I came up with:
Within the enchanted,
John Winchester’s journal:
a field guide to getting lost,
a grief observed;
O, Lady of the moon
protect Octavia’s brood
from enemies below
I got off to a poor start, not managing to get any reading done on Day 1 of the challenge (I was working on an article for publication, on deadline), and getting very little on Day 2, but here’s what I’ve got in so far:
- The Year of Magical Thinking by Joan Didion (Current page: 130 of 227; net change: 18 pages)
- Supernatural: John Winchester’s Journal by Alex Irvine (Current page: 169 of 217; net change: 11 pages)
- The Jewish Study Bible by Adele Berlin and Marc Zvi Brettler (Eds.) (Current page: 343 of 2181; net change: 9 pages) Note: not originally listed, not technically being read for the challenge, but the challenge dates encompass two weeks of parshot (readings), and so those will be included in my page count.
Net change for all books read so far: 38 pages
