Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-thon Color Cover Mini-Challenge


We have a winner! Jessica B. Look in your email for my message. I appreciate everyone who participated with your awesome colored choices!! Thanks! :D

Welcome to my COLOR COVER MINI-CHALLENGE for Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-thon for hour 14. For those who participate, a $10 Amazon gift card is up for grabs. You need money for more books to read after reading so much today, right? ;) These mini-challenges are open for three hours, so at hour 17 (midnight eastern time) I'll be pulling a winner. Here is what you need to know...

It's all about COLOR!


Pick a color(s). (I'm picking black and purple because there were four books like that I found on my shelves.)

2. Find four books with covers almost completely in that color/those colors (they need to be at least 2/3 similar - basically they need to match or be the same color - i.e. all green's, all yellow's, or match like mine below).

3. List the books somewhere or paste the pictures of the books online in a post on your blog or on another site. (You can also list the books in comments.)

4. Then come back here and leave a link in the comments below to where you posted (so we can all see) and in the Rafflecopter for the giveaway (if you left a note in comments and didn't post somewhere then you can just state "See in comments." instead of leaving a link in the Rafflecopter).

5. You can use Goodreads listopia if you need some help finding similar-colored covers. :)

Here's my example (you can also see another one with five books all in green here):

Now it's your turn! Leave a comment with your books or a link to them and in the Rafflecopter below for the giveaway.

I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's covers. Have fun!!!
