There is a special edition of the Reading Rush going on starting on Thursday. It will run from the 16th through the 19th and has four challenges. I don’t think I will get to four books in four days right now, but I did choose a book for each challenge. To make it easier I chose books I’m already in the middle of. I have 12 books that I am currently reading and I’m trying to get that number lower. This feels like as good an excuse as any to do so.
- Read a book with a house on the cover For this one I cheated a little bit, maybe. I chose Alias Madame Doubtfire by Anna Fine. There isn’t the outside of a house on the front, but Mrs Doubtfire is sitting in an armchair and is obviously inside of a house so I’m counting it.
- Read a book in the same room the whole time Unless I’m reading an ebook while doing errands, I pretty much always read my books in the same room. My desk and our bed are the two places I read at home and they are both in the same room. So any book could work for this. One book I would like to finish up is Treasures of the Snow by Patricia St. John so I’ll choose that one for this prompt.
- Read a book set somewhere you wish you could go This was the hardest prompt for me. I don’t really want to go anywhere right now. I’m leaving the house as little as possible to keep myself and Pepper safe, but for the sake of the prompt I chose the finish An Heir to Murder by Charles Heathcote. The book takes place in England which seems as good, or as bad, a place to go as anywhere else right now.
- Read a book that will make you smile For this book I picked the one I’ve been currently reading the longest. I’m enjoying it, but can’t seem to make it through more than a chapter or two at a time. It often has me laughing out loud and I really need to finish this book so I’ve chosen Bloody Rose by Nicholas Eames.
Are you participating in the Stay Home Reading Rush? ? What is a place you wish you could go? If everything were safe, I would love to go to the library. I miss it so.
