Readathon Hour 13 Mini-Challenge: Book Blending!

Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon
TReadathon Hour 13 Mini-Challenge: Book Blending!
Welcome, Readathon-ers! I know from experience that by hour 13 exhaustion often has begun to set in, so I have a fun visual mini-challenge for you this hour. Inspired by Corpus Libris and by this Pinterest board, I'm inviting you to take a Book Blending photo of yourself. Then all you have to do is post, instagram, tweet, or share it via the social media channel of your choice, and drop me a comment with a link so you can be entered to win a book of your choice up to $15/€12/£10 from The Book Depository (open worldwide).

Please don't worry about how your attempt at Book Blending compares to others — what matters is to have fun together, give it your best shot, and enjoy seeing what everyone else comes up with. Anyone who joins in will be entered for the prize, and I'll draw a random winner at the end. The mini-challenge will be open for the next three hours, so please make sure you drop me a comment with your link before we reach Hour 16. However, because Hour 16 will be 5am in my part of the world, I won't be able to announce the winner right away. I'll make sure to draw a name in the morning, though, and to contact the lucky winner by the end of the Readathon.

To give you some inspiration, here's my own Book Blending photo, which a colleague took at work the other week.

Have fun with your attempts, and happy Readathon-ing!

  3. There are 7 books in total where I am... I'm so happy one of them had cover non-abstract enough for this :)
