The mini challenge is now finished. Thank you to all the participants and congratulations to the winner, Luisa!
We're Memory and Cass, your challenge hosts, and we really love road trips. We love road trips so much, in fact, we want all of you to quit reading long enough to enjoy one of your very own.
Imagine you're on a road trip with a character from your current read. You're having an awesome time seeing amazing sights, stopping for delicious tacos every hour on the hour, and listening to fabulous music. You're about ready to share some of the fun with the folks back home.
We want you to do one of two (or two of two!) things:
Write a short postcard to a friend (or to another of the book's characters who wasn't invited on your cross country odyssey) telling them what's up with you and your new fictional BFF.
Find the perfect road trip song for you and your traveling companion to rock out to as you burn through the miles, and tell us why it's such a great fit for this character.
Share the text of your postcard or the YouTube video for your song via our handy-dandy Google form for a chance to win a set of travel-themed bookplates and an assortment of vintage postcards any road tripper would be pleased to mail to their loved ones (unless you'd rather get ones with writing on them so you can spy on 1970s peoples' conversations). We'll randomly select a winner at the end of Hour 6.
May the wind blow through your hair and your car never run out of gas.
