And the winner is . . .
Ellie from Book Addicted Blonde
Congratulations Ellie, I will be contacting you about your prize.
Thanks to everyone who entered.
The mini-challenge is now closed. The winner will be announced shortly.
Thank you all for playing along.
Fourteen books about books are represented in the picture puzzle below. All you have to do is name as many of them as you can.
Since your brain may not be at it's best at this point, I'm going to make it a little easier:
1. Cheating is encouraged. Use the internet, scour your TBR pile, phone a friend - - whatever means you need to correctly name the books.
2. Author is not required - just the title of the book.
3. I'll give you hints. One to start you off, one at Hour 22, and one more at Hour 23. However - the earlier you enter, the better your chances of winning. (see Rule 5)
4. The challenge will close at the start of Hour 24 so I have time to announce the winner before the readathon ends. Comments will not be visible till the winner is announced.
5. The person who gets the most correct will be the winner. If there is a tie, the winner will be selected by random drawing among those entrants. HOWEVER, the earlier you enter the better your chances:
Entries received during: Your name goes in the drawing:
Hour 21 5 times
Hour 22 3 times
Hour 23 1 time
What will you win? New copies of Ex Libris and Rereadings by Anne Fadiman
Get yourself one more cup/glass of your caffeine of choice, shake your head a few times to wake up your brain, and have fun.
HINT #1: The following words appear in the title of at least one book:
Still trying to identify some of those book covers? Here are a few more hints:
1. There are three books that do not contain any literary reference in the title - but the story is largely about books.
2. One book is a graphic novel.
3. One book is written entirely as letters between the characters.
4. One book was originally written in German.
UPDATE: HINT 3
Still wondering about a few of the tough ones? Your final hint is the author's last names.
