Welcome back to another day of Sumps Are For Chumps, a week long blog-a-thon hosted by the beautiful Cat at The Book Finch! Today’s theme is Earth Day and here are our lovely post prompts:
Today is Earth Day. This annual day is held to demonstrate support for environmental protection. The concept of Earth Day was established in 1969 at a UNESCO Conference in San Francisco. I think we all forget once in awhile how lucky we are to have a place to live and a world to actually exist on. Since most of our books take place all throughout the world, let’s share the love and talk about it!
- Do the Around the World book tag here. If you feel daring add a little twist (see #2!)
- Find a picture of a map and generally pinpoint where certain book “worlds” are. Try to use at least 5 different series if you’re doing it by country, or 5+ if you’re doing it in the USA. Here are some examples:
- If you read fantasy, pinpoint places you think the worlds would be -> e.g Lord of the Rings would be in New Zealand.
- Stiefvaters Raven Boys series deals a lot with Ley lines, maybe mark different places you think they’d appear.
- If it’s a dystopia, show a general area of where it is
So I’ll be doing #1! Let’s get started! The rules are to find a bunch of different books you’ve read set in different countries. Let’s do this!!!
