My 21st page Challenge is for everyone who visits my blog during the Tackle Your TBR Readathon, not just participants. But if we pique your interest, you have until tomorrow (Wednesday 20th) to sign up to the Readathon and join in the Challenges.
The Readathon is all about getting that pesky pile of books off your plate (whether they are virtual books or sitting there on the shelf staring at you). Maybe you want to keep the ones that are propping up that wonky leg on your bed.
The Challenge is all about fun!
21st Page Challenge
This is simple. Just turn to the 21st page of your current read, and find the first complete sentence (you can edit if it’s very long). Add that to the comments below. It’s nice to leave messages and thanks in the comments, but I’ll let you off this time, because if you just leave your sentence, we’ll get a whole new story! Remember that old kids’ game of Consequences? This could be just as hilarious (or impenetrable). Just for fun, here are the first sentences on the 21st page of books 1-8 of my Princelings series, in order:
George said nothing, just put his head down and carried on doggedly. Victor bustled off and in a trice he arrived back with the drinks, followed by both Baden and Bailey. Morris had explained the family tree and how Nerys, Kira, Miles and himself were all direct descendants of the Fortune family. Country, hills, river, people out farming.
“Two spokes staved in,” she said as Hywel approached her.
Baden, Buckmore’s now elderly steward, stepped in to whisper something in Lupin’s ear.
I stood on one side of the table, and a huge security guard called Harrison stood on the other.
“Hellooo! Are you awake?”
I’m sure your books will be more varied!
There is a prize for this challenge, which is open internationally, and will be drawn at random by using the Rafflecopter. One person will win the ebook box set of Books 1 – 3 in the Princelings of the East series.
As well as commenting with your sentence, you can also gain extra entries by following my blog, and by participating in the TBR Readathon. But you MUST comment with your sentence.
The entries close on 23rd September (midnight New York time), so that I can draw a winner on 24th and publish it in my wrap-up post.
