The mini challenge is now closed. Thank you to all the participants! Cass and I were the real winners here because we got to read all your amazing entries.
Hello Dewey's Readathoners! Welcome to Hour Five--aka, ROAD TRIP TIME!
We're Memory and Cass, your challenge hosts, and we really love road trips. We love road trips so much, in fact, we want all of you to quit reading long enough to enjoy one of your very own.
Imagine you're on a road trip with a character from your current read. You're having an awesome time seeing amazing sights, stopping for delicious treats, and listening to fabulous music. You're about ready to share some of the fun with the folks back home.
We want you to do one of two (or two of two!) things:
Write a short postcard to a friend (or to another of the book's characters who wasn't invited on your cross country odyssey) telling them what's up with you and your new fictional BFF.
Find the perfect road trip song for you and your traveling companion to rock out to as you burn through the miles, and tell us why it's such a great fit for this character.
Share the text of your postcard or the YouTube video for your song either in the comments here or on the Readathon Goodreads Group for a chance to win a set of vintage postcards any road tripper would be pleased to mail to their loved ones (or their enemies, if your epistolary efforts swing that way). We'll randomly select a winner at the end of Hour 7.
May the wind blow through your hair and your car never run out of gas.
