Well, friends, we're now on Hour 15 of Dewey's 24-Hour Read-a-Thon. We've passed the midpoint, but we've still got a fair ways to go.
Time for a wee break, yes?
I want you to step away from your current read just long enough to find a picture that somehow relates to the book. Find an image that makes you think of the story, the characters, the book's theme, a vital element... whatever works for you.
You don't have to create the image yourself, though you're welcome to do so if you'd like a longer break. Something you've found via Flickr's Creative Commons archive
or a Google image search is fine. Just remember to credit the person who took the picture or did the painting (or collage, or sculpture, or whatever).
The only images that don't count are a) the book's cover art or b) film stills, if the book has been adapted for movies or television. That'd be a little too easy. :)
Write a sentence or two to tell us which book you're reading and what the picture has to do with it. You can post it to your own blog, tweet it, put it up on the Read-a-thon Facebook wall
, or leave it in the comments here.
If you post it somewhere else, please comment with a permalink to your post or tweet.
I'm currently reading THE HOUSE ON DURROW STREET by Galen Beckett. The central character has a magical bond with the sentient trees of her native country. These trees feel pretty vengeful towards the folks who've beaten them down, so I found a picture of a slightly evil-looking tree:

Your turn! One participant will be randomly selected to receive a set of vintage (ie, 1950s-1970s) postcards. The challenge is open worldwide and will close at the end of Hour 17.
