Once Upon a Read-a-Thon Mini Challenge #1

I am participating in the Once Upon a Read-a-thon and am starting my first day doing a mini challenge. Here is what I am supposed to do:
So, here's the deal...

We all have a favorite book, right?

What I want you to do, since I am a lover of all things music and photo related is to pick one - or both - and put them together!!

Does that make sense? HMM, lets see if I can explain better, basically pick your favorite book and/or character and pair it with a song and/or photo that reminds you of the person or setting in the book!
My first problem is that I do not have a favorite book. I have hundreda of favorite books. I am really enjoying the book I am reading right now - The Search by Nora Roberts - and so I am going to choose a couple of images that are linked to the books for me.

The female main character does search and rescue with her labs near her home in the Orcas Islands in the Pacific Northwest. Here is the setting:

The male main character has a new puppy who is out of control and comes to the female main character for dog training. Here is a similar puppy:

Doesn't he look mischievous? Jaws is the dog's name in the story (for his ability to eat anything he sees).

Now, back to finishing the book!

The pictures come from Flickr and were chosen because they were available under a Creative Commons license.


  1. Aww that puppy is gorgeous :-) I've never read anything by Nora Roberts this the best one you've read? Which one would you recommend I start with?

  2. Awww, isn't he cute! I'd like to reach over and scratch his belly :)

  3. AWWWWWEEE, he looks more cute than This sounds like a great challenge. Good Luck with it.

  4. Nice pictures - I forgot to tell you the book size for that cover. I tried it on a paperback and...not so much. I will try on a hardcover and see. It is adjustable. I feel like I would have to take it off to read though. We will see.
