Hour 7 – With Her Nose Stuck in a Book

My, how the time has flown!  This is my final hour as your co-host.  I’ll be around on Facebook and Twitter and then I’ll hand off to Shesten.  Happy reading everyone!

In our trip down memory lane we’re going to skip the late 70’s and all of the 80’s.   The disco craze began while I was in high school and we really don’t need to revisit that!  🙂  So we move on to 1991.  Madonna?  Scorpion?  D.J. Jazzy Jeff?  No – Belle!  I spent the 90’s raising kids – and watching Beauty and the Beast repeatedly.  So, as far as I’m concerned, this is the soundtrack of the 90’s:

  1. Belle is probably one of my favorite princess…and the Beast’s library was to die for!!! Thank you Tami, you were a great host!

  2. Thank you all for your kind comments. And be sure to thank your readathon hosts – Andi and Heather. I had no clue of the phenomenal work they do until I tried just a small piece.

  3. Mini challenge, Read-A-Thon-A-Crostic

    The book is: The tube riders, C. Ward

    The
    Hell
    Ends

    There, where you decide you are not
    Unable, you are not weak, you are not
    Broken, tired, dead.
    Even when they hunt you,

    Ride you, scare you,
    Island of Mega Britain will hear your voice,
    Dead will cheer your life, whispers and sighs
    Echoing trough the tunnels.
    Ride will take you further, to where
    Sun can rise again.

  4. We watched a lot of Beauty and the Beast in our household, too. That and Home Alone. I think my kiddo watched it every Saturday morning for a year!

    Thanks for hosting, Tami.

  5. I was working in a shop during those years and we used to have to run the Disney movies on a loop, so for a time I knew every single word of each, but then it would be replaced by the next. I remember dreaming with the songs from the soundtrack appearing randomly in my dreams!

    Thanks for being a host: enjoy the rest of your read-a-thon-ing!

  6. Love this movie and most of the Disney films….I was a Disney kid and can sing almost every song to every movie including this one! Love the choice. “With a dreamy far off look and her nose stuck in a book!” 😉

  7. You did a great job sis – only wish I could have joined in – but Todd keeps us moving as you know so no time this weekend for reading I’m afraid!
