Earlier in the year I mentioned that I was taking part in a tournament hosted by the Book Drum website. The idea of Book Drum is to bring books to life with pictures, music, videos and maps. To enter the tournament, members were required to choose a favourite title from a list of approved books and submit a profile of that book.
The book I decided to profile was The Far Pavilions by M.M. Kaye, which I read and reviewed on my blog in February. It was an interesting and fun experience, although I did occasionally regret my choice of book as it has over 950 pages and the profile took forever to complete!
Each profile consists of six sections: Review, Summary, Setting, Author, Glossary – and Bookmarks, which form the largest part of the profile and expand on individual quotes, phrases and references from the book.
Although I didn’t win the tournament, Book Drum have gradually been publishing all of the completed profiles. My profile of The Far Pavilions was published last night and is being featured on the front page of the Book Drum site until Sunday.
