Read-a-Thon ... Once Upon A Reading Mini Challenge

This mini-challenge is held by Sheila at One Persons Journey Through a World of Books.

A 3-4 paragraph story including at least 10 book titles (in bold).

Deadwood Jones Books It

The Adventures of Deadwood Jones are vast.  He has done so much in his short life; even when he practically had One Foot in the Grave

As a boy he learned How to Wash a Cat (and we all know that's a Walk on the Wild Side).  He's accomplished a Back Spin that would have anyone else in the hospital or worse...but remained Unbroken.  Why he's even attended The Deadly Dinner Party.  (You know, the one where they serve Eggs Benedict Arnold?)

Deadwood Jones's most recent adventures have taken place in the most unlikely places and with the most innocuous objects.  For instance, he encountered the blue flower that gave off some very unnatural vibes by the Moonlight.  Before that he diplayed Standard Hero Behavior at the bookshop when he rescued a girl - by reciting a Ballad.

I suppose it's perfectly understandable why Deadwood Jones has decided that he will remain evermore offshore.  With all those adventures behind him, who wouldn't want a little R&R?

  1. This is a great story! I like what you did with the challenge. I was so tired that night I fell asleep and did not get around to all the people who participated like I would normally do.... finally catching up now.

  2. This was fun. It was the only mini-challenge recquiring creativity that I completed.

    And I understand completely about needing sleep. =)


Please feel free to comment. I love to hear from you!
