Hour 17

It’s Hour 17 and—wonder of wonders!—you and I are still awake!  Good job!

I had to share this very cool book water fountain with you. It is in Budapest, Hungary. Very, very cool.

How are you coming with your reading? Hang in there. We’ve got some good stuff this hour. It is time for the Challenging Book Challenge, hosted by Nova. Nova says, “I’d love for us to challenge our brains this readathon by sharing this:  If you were to pick a challenging book to read, which book would it be and why?”

And we will be giving away…not one…not two…not three…but four prizes to four lucky Readathon-ers! Good luck!

  1. Wow. That’s random. That fountain is just out side my local library. Five minutes (by car) from where I’m spending my readathon.

    And whenever they recorded that gif, it was not pouring with rain. Rare.

  2. Nope. Even more random is that my previous comment is absolutely wrong. I had my fountains crossed in my brain.

    I’m going to slink away in embarrassment now.

  3. If the book you’ve chosen,
    Makes you yawn,
    Don’t hesitate to put it down.
    Pick another,
    it’s no bother,
    A read-a-thon-er needn’t frown.

    Go, go, go! Keep it up! You’re doing great!

  4. That book fountain rocks as hard as you do, my Canadian friend! I’m hanging in there- barely though, had to take a shower to wake myself up!

    Grab another book off that stack,
    Tell Mr. Sandman to step back!
    Go, Kellie!

  5. I am headed to bed. My mini-challenge will stay open til I wake up. This might be a few hours so people can continue to enter the challenge til I close it and declare a few winners 🙂
