Soundtrack Song Mini-Challenge!

April 10, 2010

Click here for my read-a-thon updates post


Hello read-a-thoners! Welcome to the Soundtracks Song mini-challenge! I love combining music and books, so let’s do some more of that. Yes, another music challenge coming your way ;)

Here’s how to play:

* Pick up a book that you’ve read today, or are currently reading.
* Choose a song that goes with the book – could be that it fits the overall feel of it or even a certain scene.
* Create a blog post answering the following:

  • Book title
  • Soundtrack song
  • Why you chose that song

* If possible, include a clip of the song (ie, youtube video).
* Come back here and leave the link to your post in the comments. (If you don’t have a blog, you can leave your answers in the comments)

This challenge will be open for 3 hours. At the end I’ll use to pick a winner. And what are you playing for? The winner will be able to choose either 2 books or 1 of the 2 book prize packs from the read-a-thon prize list.

Have Fun!

Here’s mine!

Book title: Daddy-Long-Legs by Jean Webster

Soundtrack Song: “The Way I Am” by Ingrid Michaelson

Why I chose this song: This song seems to capture not only Jerusha honesty and wit, but also her sweet protectiveness over Mr. Smith (aka Daddy-Long-Legs), the anonymous benefactor allowing orphan Jerusha to attend college. She would do almost anything for him, and he seems to like her just the way she is.

    i’m such a music person, so the idea of marrying the read-a-thon to music is perfect! i couldn’t resist.

    I love this challenge! I always try to match up music to go with the books I’m reading, so this was right up my alley!!
    I’m reading “The Murderer’s Daughters” so the song I picked seemed to go along with it well! Here’s the link –

    Thanks for doing this!

    There you go, my dear :) Probably could have put a little more thought into it, but I’m desperately trying to catch up right now :)

    Looks like you are making great headway
    Keep up the reading, don’t let that head sway
    Eyes on the page and coffee in hand
    You’ll be entering a new land.

    I’ve been reading about the Korean naval hero Yi Sun-Shin and he was tough and very effective. My song for him is “I Won’t Back Down” by Tom Petty.
