Ho-Ho-Ho Read-a-Thon Challenge – Draw it Out!

Posted November 12, 2015 in Event, Giveaway / 26 Comments


Hello, fellow Ho-Ho-Ho Read-a-Thon’ers!!

What ‘cha reading?

That’s what my challenge is all about.  I want you to

Draw It Out!


You don’t need to be an artist.  Just get out a pencil, a pen, scribble something in a drawing app on the computer – I don’t care!  Just have fun trying to draw out what you’re reading.  Here’s my representation of Jaci Burton’s Hot Holiday Nights:

Hot Holiday Nights

See?  I went to TOWN and got the colored pencils out!  Boo-yah!  I suck at drawing 😛


The winner will receive their choice of book (or books) from either Amazon or The Book Depository in value up to $20 USD.

You could get that one hardcover you’ve been coveting, you could just load up on mass markets, or spend the bank on ebooks at Amazon.  NOTE: if you need Nooks, I can certainly do those!  I’ll work with ya!


Here are the rules:

  1. IMPORTANT: To be eligible to win, I must see your name on the Read-a-Thon signup list at Caffeinated Book Reviewer or Bookshelfery.
  2. If you’re brave, you can put your pic in a post OR you can post it to Twitter or Instagram and include me and I’ll see it.  My Twitter is NOW @addictedtohea and it’s the same at Instagram “addictedtohea
  3. PLEASE comment below where you posted your pic so I can find it!  I am going off the comments section below for the giveaway.
  4. I will use Random.org to pick the winner, based on where your comment falls, started with the top comment being #1 and so on and so on and so on and so on…
  5. If I missed something in my grand plan, please let me know.  I make mistakes but I don’t often own up to them 😉

Please tweet me if you have any questions!  Have fun and don’t try too hard.  I don’t want to be out done – I’m kidding!

Okay, maybe I’m not really kidding…


Thank you to Ellie at Curiosity Killed the Bookworm for allowing me to copy her challenge from the Dewey Read-a-Thon back in April!   I’m not that brilliant to come up with this stuff on my own…


And when you’re done with MY challenge, you simply must go check out these other awesome bloggers who have volunteered their time to host a challenge!!

  1. Aaah, FUN! So I only read a few pages of my first book for the read-a-thon, and that would be Christmas Wishes and Mistletoe Kisses by Jenny Hale, and here’s my Draw it Out (in the “Updates” section):

        They don’t know what to do with their hands for some reason. xD I have to say I was thinking Mr Darcy circa Pride & Prejudice 2005, when I was making my drawing, I love how he’s so awkward with his arms and hands at all times, especially when Lizzy is around. Hehe.

      Perfect picture!! You know, sadly, I’ve never heard of this book! It came out before I had my son and for some reason, I never noticed it. I need to go buy it!!! Have you ever seen Carle’s videos on his website on how he illustrates? They are fascinating b/c it is so unique! If you’re bored check them out…..

      I babble… THANK YOU for introducing this book to me!!

      Alright, I have to ask… how long did you spend drawing the car crash?? That is absolutely fabulous!!!! Seriously! I’m not even kidding – I used to be a graphic design major in college so I have a little cred (ha).

      Hey! Did you seriously do that picture on the computer?!?!?! I’m totally judging you “awesome” because I would have chucked my computer out the window if I tried that in my Photoshop or Illustrator. I can doctor pictures but try and draw and I choke!! Bravo!!!!

      You are #7 – Thank you joining in the fun!! I still need to read Book of Dares *sigh*
