30.7 - TessaVanessa’s Task: Nights at the Drive-in

Going to the theater the past few months has not been possible. As we move forward in this pandemic my family and I are hoping the drive-ins will open and we’ll be able to enjoy a few new movies.

Choose two options and read one book for each. REQUIRED: indicate which ones you choose when you post.

Option 1: Drive-in memories
As a small child I remember my parents and grandmother taking me to the drive in. We would load up on snacks and I’d get dressed in my pajamas and off we would go. Read a book that has a night scene including stars and/or moon on the cover.REQUIRED: Include the cover when you post.
Example: Night Road by Kristin Hannah .

Option 2: A ticket to ride
Our local drive-in like many others had playground equipment at the front near the screen. I don’t actually remember playing on the swings and slides, but I know I always wanted to. Read a book with either swing(s), swinging, slide(s) or sliding in the title (not subtitle). No other variations allowed.

Option 3: Concession foods
We love our local drive-in’s food. It is the one way they are able to stay open with the rising cost of movie fees. One of my favorite foods they have is funnel cakes with lots of powdered sugar. Read a book with a title of at least 3 words where the initial letter of each word is found in FUNNEL CAKES. Letters may only be used as many times as they appear.

Option 4: Famous drive in scene
When I think of drive in scenes in movies, I think of Grease. John Travolta is singing about Olivia Newton John’s character Sandy. The name of the song is Alone at a Drive-in Movie. Read a book by an author that shares a first or last name with an actor/actress in the movie AND has a word of at least 4 letters in the title/subtitle from the lyrics . Here is a cast list: Grease Cast List. Both the principal and secondary cast names can be used and names can be in any position. One author in a book with multiple authors can be used.
The lyrics to the song can be found here. Words must match exactly.
Example: Marley and Me Life and Love With the World's Worst Dog by John Grogan by John Grogan.
Shares a names with John Travolta and "Love" is found in the lyrics.

Trish (trishhartuk) | 2594 comments Every time I read your task description and get to option 4, I end up being pop virused by that song!

Is this okay for a night scene for Option 1? Or does it have to have land, as well as sky/space?
