Task 1: Share a picture of your favorite light display.
I love it when there's thunder and lightning, there's something comforting being all cosy inside whilst there's thunderstorms outside.
Task 2: Cleaning is a big part of this holiday; choose one of your shelves, real or virtual, and tidy / organise it. Give us the before and after photos. OR Tidy up 5 of the books on your BookLikes shelves by adding the CORRECT cover, and/or any other missing information. (If in doubt, see here: http://jenn.booklikes.com/post/1782687/state-of-the-database-booklikes-database-halloween-bingo-and-a-mini-rant-with-pictures).
I’m not convinced it’s any better but I’ll go with it for just now.
Task 3: Eating sweets is also a big part of Diwali. Either select a recipe for a traditional sweet, or make a family favorite and share a picture with us.
Peanut butter truffles
200g milk chocolate
100ml double cream
3 tablespoons crunchy peanut butter
Salted peanuts (crushed)
Slowly melt chocolate and cream over a low heat.
When melted, take off the heat and add the peanut butter until thoroughly mixed.
Put mixture into a plastic container and put into freezer for 30-60 mins.
Remove from container and cut into squares.
Coat truffles in crushed peanuts.
Task 4: During Diwali, people pray to the goddess Lakhshmi, who is typically depicted as a beautiful young woman holding a lotus flower. Find 5 books on your shelves (either physical or virtual) whose covers show a young woman holding a flower and share their cover images.
Whilst I browsed through my book titles such as Genital Grinder and Hellspawn, it dawned on me that I don't have many covers depicting ladies with flowers. Still, I just managed to scrape these 5.
Book: Read a book with candles on the cover or the word “candle” or “light” in the title; OR a book that is the latest in a series; OR set in India; OR any non-fiction book that is ‘illuminating’ (Diwali is Sanskrit for light/knowledge and row, line or series)kk
