Cool Stuff from the Internet

Posted: February 25, 2011 in General

Do you love the internet but also love books?  So does the library blog!  Every week we spend a bit of time trawling the web looking for stuff about books and reading.  Some would call this messing around: we call it research.  Here are a couple of recent discoveries: 

The Hunger Games Game!

Have you ever read The Hunger Games and wondered how you would fare in the arena?  This game allows you to test your skills as a potential tribute by asking you to respond to a variety of stressful life-and-death situations.

Unfortunately it seems that we at the library blog are woefully under-prepared for a Battle Royale-style fight to the death, and despite our best efforts we always met an unpleasant end pretty quickly.

As well as being stabbed, we also perished from dehydration, fell off a cliff, and were eaten by hyenas.
Maybe you can do better!

 What famous author do you write like?

This website lets you paste in a sample of your writing, then has a little think and tells you which famous author shares your writing style!  We pasted in a couple of library blog entries and were interested to find that we write like Dan Brown, bestselling author of The Da Vinci Code.  Hopefully this means we will soon get obscenely rich!

I write like
Dan Brown

I Write Like by Mémoires, journal software. Analyze your writing!

Who do you write like?

    The netbook screen is too small to play the second game… 😦

  2. So the Trial by Fire one worked but the Tribute Trials one didn’t? Netbooks are weird. Try it at home, maybe? I just had a go at Tribute Trials and failed miserably yet again.
