Read-A-Thon (2010) Mini-Challenge
Kate (from I Just Wanna Sit Here and Read) is hosting an Hour Five Challenge. Here are her directions:
1. Choose a song (sung or instrumental) that represents a chapter that you are currently reading or have read during the read-a-thon thus far. If the book was turned into a movie, and this chapter was shown, what music would you want in the background to convey the emotion or environment.
2. List the book/author/chapter that you choose along with the song(s) you choose.
3. Give a quick synopsis about the chapter (No SPOILERS please!) or the circumstances that take place and why you chose the song to represent it.
Prizes: 2 books of your choice from the Prize list, OR one of the two-book prize packs. Your choices are here.
In your comment please list your email so that the lovely folks at the read-a-thon can contact you for your prize.
Winner will be chosen by random.org
Well, the book I'm currently reading, The Last Time I Saw You, centers around a group of people in their late fifties. They are all getting together for their fortieth high school reunion. This makes it very easy to pick the music for this meme since several songs are mentioned in the chapter I just completed.
The first song is Crimson and Clover, followed by Proud Mary, and Wilson Pickett's In the Midnight Hour. One of the characters wants to hear The Way You Look Tonight, which is one of my all-time favorite songs. If I had more time, I'd love to put together a complete soundtrack for this book. Hmmm, I wonder if Elizabeth Berg has something like this on her blog. I'll check it out after the Read-a-Thon. No time now. Gotta get back to my books!
