Bout of Books Read-a-Thon Challenge: Mix and Match
I completely forgot about this challenge last night, but better late than never, right? It's a Mix and Match, thanks to The Nickster, and hosted at Bout of Books.
Here's what you have to do:
"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."
Very creative! So here's the books I picked, plus a couple of eBooks not pictured, for a total of 15, and below is the sentence I created. The underlined words are the ones selected from the books.
"Hi," the mysterious masked English Captain smiled. "Why sleep now? Much to hear, things to gather. Christmas is beginning."
Bit of a weird one, but I liked that it made a sentence at least! Wonder what kind of book this would be in?
If you completed the challenge, please share your sentence with me!
