Welcome to Hour 21!!! This is Kate from Kate’s Book Nook. If you’re reading this, you have made it to the final sprint! Come on, you can do it! Only 4 more hours. Really, that isn’t that long!
I would like to take a moment to thank the cheerleaders. You guys always amaze me. You selflessly take time to cheer on us readers and sometimes, when tiredness is creeping in and you just want to sleep, your encouraging cheer helps to keep me going. Thank you for taking on such a monumental task. With so many readers participating, I am sure it seemed daunting. But you all rose to the occasion and you rock!
Random Facts of the Hour
Anyone who has ever made these late night hours knows that I love to include random facts of the hour. Its just what I do. Sort of like a tradition I have with you, the participants. So here are a couple random facts for this hour:
- 50 Shades of Grey is Britain’s best-selling book of all time. – This one is quiet shocking to me. I mean 50 Shades beat out Harry Potter???
- Speaking of Harry Potter… The Harry Potter books are the most banned books in America.
- Dan Brown was a pop singer and songwriter before writing The Da Vinci Code.
- Alexandre Dumas hired a ghostwriter to help write The Three Musketeers.
- Franz Kafka asked his friend to burn all of his work. The Trial, The Castle, andAmerika were published against Kafka’s will.
