Today’s read-a-thon challenge is Rainbow Spine: “Grab books from your shelf that have the following spine colors to make a rainbow: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, & violet.” I don’t have a massive number of books on my shelf as I don’t have the space for storage so apart from a select few I tend to give them away once I’m done reading so I struggled to find the right colours. So many red and black books, so few green.
Red: “The Kite Runner” by Khaled Hosseini. One of my all time favourites and one I will read over and over again. Devastating but absolutely gripping.
Orange: “The Other Hand” by Chris Cleave. I haven’t read this yet and it was one of the books I had provisionally listed in to this challenge but I just wouldn’t have had time to get through it with the other four.
Yellow: “Mr Stink” by David Walliams. I read “The Boy in the Dress” by the same author and enjoyed it so I’m looking forward to this.
Green: AQA A2 Music Study guide, Rhinegold publishing. I struggled to find anything green on my bookshelf and this is the closest I could get! Does what it says on the tin.
Blue: “The Language of Flowers: a miscellany” by Mandy Kirkby. This is a gorgeous book with some beautiful illustrations inside which is why I keep it around.
Violet: “A Surfgirl’s Guide to Surfing”. Back in the day I used to go surfing and although it has been a while I keep this in case I ever want to brush up and get back out.
As for the actual Read-A-Thon? I didn’t get much done yesterday as there was a lot of travelling and family time, which was expected, so I’ll be catching up today.
