I forgot to mention on my update-on-reading challenge that I had challenged myself to improve my photo taking and make my instagram a bookstagram. While my phone photo taking is still not great, I have been attempting to keep a bookstagram, so I thought I’d share a couple pictures I took that aren’t too shabby.
Here is my little gallery of Days 6-11 of the Book Photo challenge. Click on each picture to enlarge and read the caption!
And just for a little explanation of some of these pictures. For my borrowed books – I just started A Series of Unfortunate Events and I’m really enjoying it, so I thought I would get the next few. The other book was a recommendation by someone whom I follow on Goodreads. The books I’m reading now are The Idylls for Medieval Literature (I’m reading it all instead of just certain sections because I want to) and The Help (I bought this book a long time and forgot about it, but one of the groups in my Literary Theory class did their presentation on this book and reminded me!) – however, knowing me, I’m reading lots of books. I’ve got Mockingjay for pleasure and a book of letters by Dorothy Day for a project both in e-version… as well as Alice in Wonderland for a project, a book of poetry by Ann Scowcroft, and a book of Catholic devotions. Last, the signed book is my only signed book. It’s a book called I Thirst which was written by a close friend – I highly recommend it, of course. She is actually going to be releasing the sequel very soon!
Not that my pictures are any good, but I decided to work my way through Books & Cupcakes photo challenge. I started off with a day or two from the February challenge, but now I’m sticking with the March one.
Day 1 – reading this month
Day 2 – a book I couldn’t put down
Day 3 – last reads / recommendations
Day 4 – reading place
Day 5 – someone reading (my sister)
I snagged some choice quotes from the books I’ve been reading this month.
“This king’s ruled long enough—it’s time to tear his castle down (The Raven Court by Nora Sakavic)
“How else could I orient myself in this sea of gray?” (The Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins)
One last thing – I went to Value Village with my mom and managed to whittle down all the books I was holding to just two: a better copy of The Lord of the Rings and Mansfield Park, which I have been looking for a good copy of for a long time because it’s my favourite Austen book.
I just wish I was a millionaire so I could buy more books.
