I am always game for doing something a bit different on the blogosphere now and again and the lovely Simon T of Stuck-in-a-Book has set up a rather brilliant mix of meme and challenge (and not a reading challenge type of challenge). He has asked if some bloggers “can you post a picture which sums up your reading taste, or a section of it? I’m looking for a picture which doesn’t include a book in it, or a character from an adaptation, or anything like that. It can be a photograph you’ve taken, or a painting you’ve seen, or anything… have fun with it!”
Well I have done mine and I wonder if you think I have managed to sum up my reading tastes with this image?
You might think ‘oh that’s just a big manor’ and it is, and I love books with those in them but there are hints of a few more things I love. It is a Victorian manor and I do love everything Victoriana as you have probably learnt already. It has an air of the mysterious, ominous, gothic and slightly spooky; I love all those things too. It also looks like it could be part of a murder mystery or even a fairytale and both those things tick my reading boxes too.
So who else is up for a go at this? If you are leave a link in my comments and I look forward to seeing your results over the forthcoming days and weeks. If you don’t have a blog and fancy having a go, send me a picture and explain why it sums up your reading and I will do a special post in the next few weeks of all your responses. I really like this challenge, don’t forget to see Simon T’s recent post for what other bloggers have come up with so far!
