Hello again, here I am with yet another 10 day catch up for the #100DayProject, this time it’s days 51-60. If you have been following along on Instagram, I have been attempting to post them every day but of course that only works if you work ahead or keep up to date and I have not been able to do either due to sick kitties. So finally I have finished the few that were missing from this batch and I wanted to do a round-up post here on the blog. You can find a detailed post for my Day 1 project where I went into the ins and outs of what I was doing, and here is a look at the first ten days and days 11-20 and days 21-30 ,days 31-40 and days 41-50. For this post, I am presenting the finished projects for days 51 to 60.
Here are the individual days with titles, authors and quotes.
Captain Corelli’s Mandolin by Louis de Bernieres
The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides
The Color Purple by Alice Walker
The Jane Austen Book Club by Karen Joy Fowler
Everything is Illuminated by Jonathan Safran Foer
The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
The Reader by Bernhard Schlink
Brighton Rock by Graham Greene
The Help by Kathryn Stockett
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
So why ATCs and why these books? Well in order to make it easier on myself and therefore make it more likely that I could do all 100 days, I thought ATCs would be perfect. Then I thought of book quotes handwriting them, perfect way to practice my lettering and also indulge my love of books. So what books? The first 25 books are all books with elements of magic in them (fantasy, supernatural, urban fantasy, vampires, witches, werewolves etc) and then I changed to modern fiction and I will see if I do 25 of those or more. As with the first 25 books, all books must be taken from my shelves and be actual physical books, no ebooks, no audiobooks! I have also started taking elements from the book covers and incorporating them in the ATCs so they are starting to look like mini book covers.
#The100dayproject – Day 51-60So tell me, what books have you read and what’s your favourite cover, if any? Let me know in the comments and as always, thanks for reading!
