Readathon: Hour 7 -- A Post Every Two Hours Sounds Good To Me

Two hours brings me twelve chapters farther into Delirium marking me at about 2/3rds done. I'm also debating what book I should head to next, maybe the Percy Jackson book, giving me a short dystopian break before I start up on Hunger.

Anyway, two more mini-challenges! And I have also made myself some delicious lunch (yay).

First off is Book Journey's Book Appetit Challenge

Since I am currently reading Delirium I will go with that. I'd begin the meal by serving a fruit salad of apples and oranges and definitely end it with a very fancy, overly rich chocolate cake with candied hearts on it. As for beverage I feel as if something alcoholic would be great as a representation of the loss of control.

The second challenge I will update about is The Hungry Reader's Find a Poem Challenge

Also from Delirium:

"I met an Invalid and fell for his art"
"The deadliest of all deadly things."
"It will kill me and I don't care."
"Love: a single word, a wispy thing, a razor edge."
"Amor Deliria Nervosa"

See you in about another two hours!

@Shel: AH really? Sweet Cool, yes I'll get on that, thank you, Delirium really lent itself to being made to poery.
