Daily Prompt : Incubate

In response to one-word prompt : Incubate

My mom loved all kinds of animals, she had a lot of hens, when the hen started   laying eggs she prepared a basket for the hen to lay all the eggs in it. After a few days the hen would sit on the eggs and covered them with her warm feathers.

We had a lot of fun watching the hens, when it was time for the eggs to hatch, we’d quietly watch  when the little yellow chick would break out of the eggs with its beak.

DP Daily Prompts: Final Trio

pad2014-s.png (308×60)

For our final trio prompt of the year, write about any topic you wish, but make sure your post features a bookcase, something cracked and a song you love.

Raphael and Gabriel my favorite felines were happily eating their food I gave them for lunch, I thought while they’re busy eating, I’ll check the Youtube to listen to the narrator about the Moors in Spain. I was busy listening and enjoying watching some of the cities in Spain. Suddenly it dawned on me I have a book on Spain let me check if I can find some of the places in Spain  the narrator is talking about. To my utter disbelief I found Raphael pulled out a book from my bookcase, he had a part of the cover in his mouth busily chomping it.

I carried Rapha and put him in the hallway. On the other side of the living room Gabriel knocked down my table lamp and cracked and broke a few pieces, I carried him out and told both of them, they are not allowed in the living room the rest of the day.

I was very upset with the felines, I thought I must listen to my favorite song, it will at least make me forget about the felines for sometime.

Here is the song, I hope you’ll like it,it’s by our Canadian singer Celine Dion.

DP Daily Prompt: Binding Judgment

Does it ever make sense to judge a book by its cover—literally or metaphorically? Tell us about a time you did, and whether that was a good decision or not.

As far back as I can remember, I did not pick up books to read by looking at its cover. I went for the title instead.

My early years in teaching I read books if the title was interesting, and recommended them to my nine year old students. There were a lot of books in our classroom shelf, my kids didn’t read they were just not interested.

One day I was looking for a book to read, I found a book the title was,”This Can’t Be Happening At Macdonald Hall.” It immediately caught my attention, I looked at the back of the book and found out it was written by a twelve year old for a class project. His teacher suggested he should publish his story, as advised he took it to the Scholastic publishing company, they were impressed by it and published it. His book was very popular and was read by thousands of students across Canada.

His other books were ,”I Want To Go Home,” this one was a best seller too.He has written many books after.

Another book I read was, “A Dog’s Journey”, then the next one was, “The Art Of Hearing Heartbeats”, I have read many books I have chosen for the title and not the cover.

I also read books by famous authors such as , ‘Paulo Coelho’, I read all his books I liked most of them, the one I did not like was,”Eleven Minutes”, Paulo wasn’t too sure how the book will be received but it did all right.

Writing Prompt: Judgement Day

If you were to judge your favourite book by its cover,would you still read it?

First of all I pick up books by their title not cover. Most of the time I don’t pay attention to the cover of a book. I read the title and if I’m impressed I read it, not once but several times.

If I were to judge my favourite book by its cover, I’d definitely read it. To me cover is not important.

Daily Prompt: Judgment Day Posted by Ranu

If I were to judge my favourite book by its cover, will I still read it? Yes I will,the cover of a book,makes no difference to me.I pick books by the title and not cover. Recently I read Paulo Coelho’s book,’The Alchemist’,I didn’t even look at the cover.Out of curiosity I took out the book again and looked at the cover.The design is nothing out of the ordinary, there is nothing on it that can make me even a little eager to find out what it is about.The title certainly attracted my attention.I started reading the book and did not stop until I was finished.This is the type of book I will read several times.

Another book that caught my attention,was ,’Proof of Heaven’.This one is written by a neurologist.I could not put it down until I read the whole book. I am embarrassed to admit,I didn’t even look at the cover.I read the title and bought the book.What I am trying to say is,’I do not judge a book by its cover.”
