My challenge is to do an LO about Reading. A book you loved or a book you hated doesn't matter. It could be the book you've read a million times to your child or wanted read to you.

You could also look at the list of banned books and see if you've read any.
I've read I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings as a HS student and The Color Purple and The Golden Compass. Would you want your kids reading these? Have you read then and how do you feel about them being banned?

Ok, here's mine... So, I'm a huge Harry Potter fan and being that it was on the list of top challenged/banned books here a LO based on it it....

The quote is from "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" and is spoken by Albus Dumbledore... it says

I sometimes find, and I'm sure you know the feeling, that I simply have to many thoughts and memories crammed into my mind...At these times...I use the Pensive. One simply siphons the excess thoughts from one's mind, pours them into a basin, and examines them at one's leisure.

This was a really fun Challenge...I love books...I can't belive I actually put a picture of me looking this horrible on it, but it was one my son took and caught me in a middle of a thought! TFL ladies and thanks again Melissa for an awsome challenge!

OH that is such a neat idea!!! I love the bling and that paper is awesome! See ya never thought you were going to use Halloween paper for a non Halloween LO!

I think the pictures are awesome because you are in thought and I love the tearing and lack of color too!

You ladies are going to blow me away in my own challenges! I've been working on my other crop :p I couldn't decide what to do for this because I had so many ideas.

Here's mine the Wordle is the book discription I just copy and pasted then I typed Thud ten times and Terry Pratchett 5 so they'd come out bigger. I used a becky fleck sketch from her new book.

Isn't it funny what someone will make out of a book. When I read Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn, I never thought anything bad about it. It was a "STORY"!! It was also from the times.

I love the LOs. I'm also an avid reader and love those mysteries. Don't mind a touch of romance. That's what I do when we travel instead of scrapping.
