“Go Away – I’m Reading!”

Posted on March 12th, 2012 by Anna in Books

Ever gotten yourself caught up in a novel so much you just wanted to tell your annoying little sister to go away so you wouldn’t miss what was happening on the pages? Well now you can! These book covers are meant for the most popular YA books today, and will effectively tell everyone around you not to bother you while you continue your reading journey.

 

These book covers are FREE and can be found here: http://www.mediabistro.com/galleycat/free-customized-go-away-im-reading-book-covers_b48341 Simply download the ones you want, send them to your local Staples or other office supply store and have them printed out on thick paper. The printing is what will cost you some money, or if you have your own printer and paper that’s long enough, you can print them off yourself. On their website there is a video tutorial explaining how to fold them around your book once you get them printed.

Road Trip Wednesday #66: Literary Lovebirds

Posted on February 11th, 2011 by Anna in Books

This Week’s Topic:
Who are your favorite literary couples?
You know — the ones you like by themselves, but LOVE together!

Yeah, ok, so sue me. It’s Friday and not Wednesday, I know. Eh, some things are just better late then never. Right? Right!

This is question is one where it seems as if we’re strictly talking about romance, but we don’t have to be! I’m going to choose Legolas and Gimli from Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien just because together, they make the perfect comic pair.  I will always remember that scene, especially in the Two Towers movie where Gimli is telling Aragon “Toss me! Just toss me! …but don’t tell the elf!” Those two are hysterical together.

But, you might be thinking of an actual romantic duo and that’s totally cool too. Think of who you would choose and let us know in your comments. Just don’t forget to include the book title, author, the two character’s names, and why you chose them.

YA Highway is a blog (www.yahighway.com) by a group of young adult authors from all over the world! And every Wednesday YA Highway’s contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question and answer it on their own blogs. You can hop from destination to destination, from their blog, and get everybody’s unique take on the topic.

But, why not do the same thing on our blog every week? I’ll post their question and you can put your answers in our comments section, or on your own blog and link back to it in our comments (and theirs too, if you’d like, because I’m sure they’d enjoy reading your answers!)
