Week 45 ~ our Favorites!

Good Morning. I'm writing to you this morning from the Hard Rock in Biloxi. I'm on a 2 day mini-break with my College Sorority Besties to shop & catch the STYX concert. {Amazing music, those guys still HAVE it.} You Weekend / Monday posters are the brave ones this week. It took me some time to wrap my arms around this weeks theme, and if I'd have only waited until say Thursday...I think I could have created something truly magical. I knew I didn't want just a snap shot of my book...and I wanted to be crafty. I wished I could have scoped out my own books, but they are boxed up with the remode. In hindsight, I wish I'd have thought to empower my BFF, Google. Or at the very least made a trip to the library. I googled the top 10 books of all time, and could only find lists in 100's but this is my favorite.

10. The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams

9. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

8. Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell

7. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

6. Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s / Sorcerer’s Stone by J. K. Rowling

5. On the Origin of Species by Charles Darwin

4. The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

3. The Bible (King James Version)

2. 1984 by George Orwell

1. The Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger

With some effort and creativity, I think I could have rocked out something in this top ten, and sidebar: I thought #3 would have been higher. (Just saying.) But that is neither here nor there. You guys rocked out these photos this week. I had a lot of fun scrolling through the photos each night trying to guess the book before I read the title. {Come on, I can't be the only one who did that?}
Now on to the top ten, as always...listed in no particular order. If you like the artist , visit the links below the photo and send them some love. Everyone could use some encouragement, and your words might be just the pat on the back that an artists needs. Photography can be frustrating, so go ahead & pat away and send the love.

As for the Ellenburg Photography photograph of the week, I had every intention of going straight Harry Potter. First, I love all things Harry Potter (go ahead and laugh) and I have the full on costumes from my Halloween adventures! But the latest Middle school book craze has swept my home. If you have a middle schooler, this book is an excellent giftable. They love it and there is a part two . I'm sure book three is being written as we speak. Here is some of the interesting paper folding adventures happening in the Ellenburg Home.
