Dewey's Readathon Mini-Challenge -Characater Photo

Alyce at AT Home With Books is hosting this challenge! Thank you Alyce! Here is what Alyce asked us to do:

"My challenge for you is to take a photo of something that represents a character in one of the books you are reading for the readathon."

I took picture that is not too original. The character I am currently reading about is Leelee Satterfield from Whistlin Dixie in a Nor'Easter by Lisa Patton. She is a southern belle at heart that has been uprooted to run an inn in Vermont. She just finished shoveling out her car, or so she thought, after an April Nor'Easter. This picture represents her. She's a peach out of her element and is not liking the rough Vermont weather and having to wear so much paraphernalia. I imagine her wearing a styling winter hat.

I am doing okay on the readathon and will update my totals later. I made my morning phone call to my mother and am now ready to get back to my book! So far, so good!

In another note, I can't believe that as soon as I took off my word verification off of comments, I got spammed.

Dear Mr. or Mrs. Spammer,
No, I won't be watching Jersey Shore anytime soon so you really don't need to leave me a link to watch it! And I sure won't be clicking on any links you might choose to leave me. I hope you can find a better way to enjoy your day!

Back to the books!


  1. I am sorry you got spammed. As a cheerleader I encouraged turning off word verification. But I will say that because you have the comment window pop up using word verification is easier. Anyway, have a great day of reading.

  2. Beth, your idea is actually really creative. Good luck with your reading.

  3. Love your picture! I think it's perfect for the character. Sounds like your read-a-thon is going strong except for the spam. Yeah reading!

  4. :( I'm sorry you got spammed. I started allowing anon comments this morning and got spammed as well. Just a day, right???

    Anyway, CUTEST HAT EVER!

    Hope you're having a rockin' readathon.

    Give me an R
    Give me an E
    Give me an A
    Give me a D



    I hope you have a great time - I'm couldn't join in this time:(

  6. Great choice of photo for the mini challenge! Thanks for participating!
