Just this afternoon I finished off this clever little challenge. It finally got nice enough that I was able to do some reading in the outdoors. Here are the rules that I had to follow for the challenge:
Choose one place from each category. It's up to you - you can do one of the suggested places, or you can pick one from your life that you think fits.
- Read in that category for at least one hour. Ten minutes six times counts and sixty minutes one time counts, you get the picture.
- Wait for March 30, June 30, September 30, and December 30 to see if you're the lucky finisher that was drawn for a prize.
Twist Your House - somewhere inside your house that you have never sat & read before
Place of Commerce - somewhere that things are sold
Move - just somewhere where you are moving through space
Nature - sitting/standing on something that isn't manmade
You Don't Call HomeOut of state. At your neighbor's house. Hotel.
Probably Shouldn't - Think work, church, grocery shopping.
In Pairs - someone else in the room is reading their own book too
Seven hours of reading in a place that you probably wouldn't normally. That's the challenge. Sponsored by I Heart Monster. Go HERE for the full description and to sign up. You know you want to.
And here are the places I used to fulfill my challenge commitment:
Twist Your House: On the futon in my son's room (one of the few places in my house where I haven't read...about the only other choice was the laundry room, but with our new stacked washer/dryer set up there really isn't a comfy--or semi-comfy--way to read in there) [Complete! 4/28/11]
Place of Commerce: weekly (sometimes twice-weekly) trips to Jiffy Treet (ice cream place) [Complete! 2/18/11]
Move: In the car to/from work [Complete! 2/11/11]
Nature: Outside under my maple tree [Complete! 5/5/11]
You Don't Call Home: The Hospital [Complete! 4/20/11]
Probably Shouldn't: At work [Complete! 2/9/11. Don't tell my boss....Oh wait, it's an English Department. I don't think they'll mind.]
In Pairs: With Hubby in the living room [Complete! 2/4/11 Now to talk him into Paris.]
