Mini Challenge #5: Picture and Snack Time

From The Reading Housewives of Indiana:

This challenge is very simple. I did it this way on purpose. Sometimes for read-a-thons, you just want an easy challenge you can complete rather quickly so you can get right back into reading. So, I came up with a very simple picture that has you just taking one single picture.

All you have to do for this challenge is post a picture of your current read (physical book or ebook on your ereader) and your snack & drink all together in one shot. Feel free to also include yourself in this photo, it isn’t required, but it could be fun!

I got the chance to read a bit at work today, so here you go…


I read my sections of The Great Gatsby and A Midsummer Night’s Dream for my readalongs and continued Mockingjay.  My snacks are my usual that I stash in my desk drawer.
