Okay… I know what you are thinking. How much reading did I get done today?
Well… I found out that I have made it to chapter 8 before the big reading slump took place for An Ember in the Ashes. I did get through Saga Volume 4 and hopefully, I will get some more reading for P.S. I Like you before bed. As far as the reading count goes, I got through 1 graphic novel and 100 pages.
So what is my plan for tomorrow? Well, I need to finish volume five of Saga, and at least get started on An Ember in the Ashes. I am not sure how that is going to work out, since tomorrow is my really crazy day.
Now let’s move onto the challenge. This sounds easy, but it was a bit challenging and fun. A lot of the books and pages I choose had tons of articles. If you need examples of the different types of articles click on the link to help you out.
The Nickster hosted at Bout of Books — Mix ‘n Match (instructions right below!)
Pick out 10-15 books from your shelf, from your local library, or from a local bookstore. They can be any genre, any language, and any length. In each book, flip to a random page and pick the 1st word (articles such as “the”, “and”, “an”, “or”, etc. don’t count as the 1st word). Use all these 1st words to try to create an actual sentence. If the books are in different languages, feel free to translate them to all one language or leave them as they are! also, you can add in some articles, such as “the”, “and”, “an”, “or”, etc., if you want to make the sentence flow better.
I grabbed 13 books. Here are my books and the words that I grabbed.
- An Ember in the Ashes, we (127)
- P.S. I Like You, I (247)
- City of Bone, one (225)
- The Secret Garden, if (127)
- Uprooted, light (179)
- Stars Above, now (209)
- Unwanteds, eliminators (236)
- Wicked Lovely, sisters (177)
- Counting By 7’s, young (247)
- Half Upon A Time, many (201)
- This is Where it Ends, would (97)
- Dumplin, work (243)
- Hamlet, doubt (57)
Here is my sentence
If we light now, the young eliminator sisters would work many doubt.
Sadly, I cannot tell you what it means, but it does sound interesting. I can tell you how much this challenge has highlighted the use of articles that we use everyday in the English Language.
I do hope that you enjoyed this little update. See you soon, and happy reading!
