July 2018 Book Lover's Challenge

Post by Rozebud » Sun Jul 01, 2018 1:40 pm

The Book Lover’s Challenge turns two this month, and to celebrate this, plus the fact that we co-host two challenges we love, Rachel (rachel0017) and I are holding a “Challenge Crossover” where the Book Lover’s world and the Movie Madness world collide. We will both be featuring The Book Thief by Markus Zuzak. The book was published in 2005 and was made into a movie in 2013, starring Geoffrey Rush.
 
The Book Thief is about Liesel Meminger, a child growing up in Nazi Germany during World War II. As the story begins, Liesel has been sent to live with foster parents, Hans and Rosa Hubermann. In secret, Hans begins to teach Liesel how to read, and she becomes so enchanted with the power of the written word that she begins stealing books the Nazis are burning. When her foster parents provide asylum for a Jewish boxer and family friend named Max Vandenburg, he and Liesel develop a friendship over their shared love of words. Max writes books for Liesel and gives her a blank sketchbook, enabling her to become the author of her own story.
 
OPTION 1: The Book Title Thief
For this option, take the title from any book you like, and use it as the title for your page.

I used the book THE MIRACLE WORKER by William Gibson
 Image
OPTION 2: The Scrap Thief
For this option, scraplift any layout from either my (Rozebud) or Rachel’s (rachel0017) gallery. Be sure to include a photo of the layout you lifted. You can link to the galleries from here:
Rose’s gallery
Rachel's Gallery
 
For the bonus, do BOTH the Book Lover’s AND Movie Madness Challenges. When you post your second layout, be sure to include a note letting us know that you’ve done both. You can include a link to your layouts or include photos of both. For example, if you’ve already done the Movie Madness Challenge and are now entering the Book Lover’s Challenge, include a note, link, or photo with your submission saying you’ve already done the Movie Madness Challenge, and be sure to do the same thing back on the Movie Madness Challenge otherwise Rachel won’t know you’ve submitted to both. This is probably clear as mud, so feel free to ask whatever questions you might have!

Movie Madness Challenge:

I found a travel series of books called "Off the Beaten Path" and I thought it would fit these pics of the beautiful homes in Madison Indiana!
