Read-a-thon Mini-Challenge, Hour 4

The task: Grab one of your favorite books and post one of your favorite quotes from it. This challenge is open for the next two hours, ending at 11:00 a.m. pacific time, which is the very end of hour 5. This mini-challenge is open to Readers and Cheerleaders.
The prize: Ruined by Reading – Lynne Sharon Schwartz and a set of dishcloths

Here’s one of my favorite quotes from one of my favorite books, East of Eden by John Steinbeck.

“No story has power, nor will it last, unless we feel in ourselve that it is true and true of us.” p. 266

  2. Athena says:

    My entry is up! Love quotations.

  3. Eva says:

    What a great mini-challenge! And I love that quote from East of Eden: I really need to reread that soon. 🙂 I chose a quote from Persuasion; you can read it here.

  4. Dewey says:

    KNITTED dishcloths. Not like, Target dishcloths. 🙂

  5. debnance says:

    My favorite is from Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance.

  6. Dewey says:

    Also, I am terrified of Athena winning because she will see how lacking my knitting is! She’s my knitting guru.

  7. Nymeth says:

    I love this idea! Here’s mine.

  8. Icedream says:

    Oh, I like this challenge! You can find my entry here.

  9. Felicia J. says:

    Did I somehow miscalculate hours? I thought the read-a-thon was starting at 9 a.m. Pacific time (which is 10 a.m. for me in Mountain time). That would make 11 a.m. PST the end of hour 2, not hour 5. Help! I’m confused.

  10. Jessica says:

    Here’s my post. Love the challenge!

  11. N.Vasillis says:

    Hey, Felicia. 9am counts as hour one. I was confused at first too!

  12. Wendy says:

    Here’s my post. Thanks for the challenge!

  13. Jen says:

  14. CCDPiper says:

    All done! What a great challenge!

  15. N.Vasillis says:

    Dewey: Athena’s that’s good? I have to see what these dishcloths look like. Maybe I should learn to knit.

  16. jessi says:

    I would participate, but I’m on my lunch break right now and about to late getting back as it is. 🙂 Fun challenge, though! Have fun reading!

    My favorite quote from the book I just read (True Light by Terri Blackstock) is “To whom much has been given, much is required.”. It makes me realize how much God expects of me.

  30. N.Vasillis says:

    Jill, you are the best!

  31. Samantha says:

    It seems as though I’ve won this mini-challenge. Dewey said to let you know, so you could send the book. I couldn’t find an e-mail address, so if you can mail me at Samanthakathy at gmail dot com, I can send you my address.

    Loved this challenge by the way! Very interesting to read people’s quotes.

  32. Trish says:

    I’m unsure if this one is still open because it says 11 pacific which is hour 3 in my book–which was a long time ago. Am I totally confused??

    Anyway, regardless I did a post:
