Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon: Words of Wisdom & 4 Seasons Challenges

[These two challenges were for hours 2 and 3, respectively…]

CLASSIC WORDS OF WISDOM CHALLENGE

The quote I’ve chosen for this is from Elizabeth Gaskell’s North and South, which I read recently and really, really loved:

Margaret the Churchwoman, her father the Dissenter, Higgins the Infidel, knelt down together. It did them no harm.

These words really resonated with me when I read them, because they’re ones that I’ve always believed – that even completely contradictory beliefs and opinions don’t need to stop people from getting along together and being friends.

FOUR SEASONS, FOUR BOOKS CHALLENGE

For this challenge, we had to take a photo of four books, each representing a different season. I’ve chosen Flambards by K.M. Peyton (spring), Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson (summer), Sophie Hits Six by Dick King-Smith (autumn), and Life After Life by Kate Atkinson (winter).
