Book Staging On The Wings of Books
 The book staging challenge is all about staging your book with either something that is on the cover or with something that goes with the book and then taking a picture of it!

I have been having trouble with posting pictures. I don't care that this one should be rotated.

Pick out a quote from the book you are currently reading.

I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "we hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal."
-Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
August 28th, 1963

 I just finished reading Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter and this quote headed the last chapter.

Challenge 17
Mad Libs! Nisaba
 1)pick a paragraph (not too long) from the book you’re reading
2) remove some of the nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs, and either
3a) get a friend (in person, over the phone, over the internet–whatever!) to fill in the words for you mad-libs style

My paragraph
 I grabbed the man nearest me by the hair and struck him in the face with my fist, rendering him insensible. The man nearest him caught another of my fists in his belly. I was quite content to whip the lot of them, one by one, and would have done so, had Jack not risen to his feet and called off his men.

My Mad Lib
I Ran the man nearest me by the Butt and Jumped him in the Head with my Foot, skating him Fat. The Walmart nearest him sat another of my arms in his Nose. I was quite cold to play the lot of them, 16 by 11, and would have done so, had George not risen to his eye and farted off his men.
