I got the September list done! I made it a "Photo Challenge" instead of "Photo-a-Day" that way we can approach the list as a scavenger hunt. I numbered them too though for those who want to continue with a Photo-a-Day format. The best of both worlds!

 

  1. “A Boo Radley Moment” from To Kill a Mockingbird
  2. Oh the Places You'll Go
  3. The Joy Luck Club
  4. The Happiness Project
  5. “Small acts of kindness and love.” – Gandalf
  6. The Hunger Games
  7. "A person's a person no matter how small!" - Horton
  8. The Color Purple
  9. Rear Window
  10. The Language of Flowers
  11. The Book Thief
  12. Let's Pretend This Never Happened
  13. “Riddikulus!” – Professor Lupin
  14. “We go together like peas and carrots.” – Forrest Gump
  15. Divergent
  16. Outliers
  17. Happy at Home
  18. “May the wind under your wings bear you where the sun sails and the moon walks.” from The Hobbit
  19. Snugglepot and Cuddlepie
  20. The Scarlet Letter
  21. Orange is the New Black
  22. Perks of Being a Wallflower
  23. 50 Shades of Grey
  24. Great Expectations
  25. Rot & Ruin
  26. Twilight
  27. Little house in the Big Woods
  28. Miss Perigrine’s Home for Peculiar Children
  29. The Birds
  30. "Reading is a gift." – Owen Meany

 

I think it's a nice assortment of deep thinking and fluff! I'm looking forward to seeing the interpretations of this one.

 

I don't really want to do this monthly, but I'm enjoying August and just now getting into the swing of it.  I'd like to give it another go now that I've gotten into the rythm of it.  Plus, September is another month, like August, that doesn't have a focus of it's own.  You know, summer's fading, but it's not quite fall yet, no major holidays . . .

 

So, anyone in for one more month?  I'd like the focus to be "literary" and figure this one will take more thinking and planning, so we'd better start early generating the list.  I'm thinking everything from picture books to classics to non-fiction to new releases.  Titles, characters, quotes, ideas . . .

I am in.. I'll have to do some research though.  I used to be an avid reader but in bablancing life it is one of the things that has disapeared from mine.  I do know "Oh the places you go" though.  I'll be good with the children's books still LOVE to browse through that section.  OH and my girls and I read the entire Harry Potter series allowd last summer!

 

The Happiness Project  is the last full book I made it through.

What a great idea, Doris! 

 

My kid recommends The Hobbit and The Hunger Games.

i LOVE the Happiness Project.  that's a good one.  i mean, i've never read it or even heard of it, but the words "happiness project" are very inspiring for a photo challenge.  i can see hunger games involving food, lol.  with the hobbit, i'll need to find a quote i think.  funny, g and i are actually watching that movie this weekend.  we made it about halfway through last night before my eyes got too heavy.

 

christy - you're going to have to give me some specific ideas for hitchcock.  i'm just not really familiar with any of his work.  although, isn't there one about a rearview mirror or something?  that would be a good one . . .

Happiness Project is a great book you should read it.

 

One of my Zombie books might be fun to do - "Rot & Ruin" - it could be about the things you find at the bottom of the fridge if your anything like me that is!

One of our favorite things to say from Harry potter is "Ridiculous"  similar to ridiculous but with a oo sound at the u.  It is a protective spell and just fun to say.

 

The Happieness Project is a great book, very worth reading.  Even if you only pull one or two things away from it it is worth it.  I am thinking of reazding it again for 2014 find one or two more things to focus on, I know I would get more out of it.

Having finally caught up on the August project I planned to try to blog every day of September too so this certainly will help.

 

Divergent is a great YA book (new trilogy along Hunger Games lines) third one not out yet second one in Insurgent

Gladwell's book Outliers & The Tipping Point

 

Happy at Home is the follow up to Happiness Project

 

Snugglepot and Cuddlepie is an Australian kids book


Celia

See Me...

That's a good list! I think it will be interesting to see how it gets interpreted.
