Welcome to my Bout of Books challenge! Today’s the penultimate day , and I’m excited to be hosting near the end of this great event. I’ve been reading so much this week but now it’s time to have a little fun!
Description: You know how real estate agents will stage an apartment to attract potential buyers? Well, that’s what you’re going to do to a book!
Rules: Take a picture of a book you’re reading today, or any book you have lying around. In the picture you should have the book in a setting, or surrounded by items, that represent the book. It can mimic the cover, or represent characters/events/etc from the story. Basically, make us want to read the book based on picture alone.
This must be a picture YOU take and upload. Simply stage the book, and upload a picture to your blog, Twitter or Goodreads account. If you don’t have any of these, than you can post your picture on my blog’s Facebook page.
Here’s a book I’ve staged just to give you an idea:
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline- full of 80′s awesomeness, so I added an Atari logo, some leg warmers and some movies mentioned in the book. (Honestly, this book is so amazeballs!)
This challenge is open to everyone. In the US, the winner will receive a $15.00 Amazon gift card through their email, and International winners can pick a book up to $15.00 through the Book Depository and I’ll buy it have it shipped to you!
Just comment with your link below!
This challenge will be open for 24 hours (from midnight to midnight EST). One winner will be chosen at random. Remember, you MUST be signed up for Bout of Books to qualify for the prize. Good luck!
I’m announcing the winner for this challenge. First I want to say that I’m super glad that I went with the random option to pick a winner, because you all did a fabulous job and I’m not sure that I could have picked just one winner and then would have had to explain to the Hubs why I had to tap into our retirement savings in order to buy prizes for all of you!
Since I could only have one winner, here she is:
She choose a couple of books from the Book Depository and they have have already been ordered and will be shipped to Portugal!
Well, since they’re pre-orders they won’t ship for 43 days, but I did order a bonus bookmark which will ship soon. 😉
Thank you so much, all of you, for participating. I was overwhelmed by the thought and care you all put into this challenge. Maybe I’ll see you next Bout of Books with a similar challenge!
