24 Hour Read-A-Thon Hour 16 Time Flies Mini-Challenge – CLOSED

Thanks to all of you who played! Keep reading 🙂  The first reader to get all 13 books correct is Megan (YA? Why Not?) and she will receive a $24 B&N giftcard.  The secondly winner (randomly chosen by drawing names out of a hat) is Dilatory Bibliophile and she will receive a $12 B&N giftcard.  Congratulations, readers, I’ll be in touch 🙂  I’ll be stopping by everyone who played along in the next few days to say hi.

Hi read-a-thonners!  I hope you’re all still awake and having fun.  There are two ways to play this mini-challenge…I made a fall Read-a-thon Clock (yes, it looked more like a clock in my mind ;)).  Just tell me the titles and you could win a prize, the reader with the most correct answers wins a prize. (in the event of a tie the first person to submit their answers will win)  If you get even one title correct I’ll throw your name in the drawing for a second prize.  Keep in mind that each number on the clock is correctly represented and don’t forget about the book in the center.

I’ll periodically hide the comments so don’t be worried if your answers disappear until I draw a winner at 1 AM.

(I apologize for the quality of the clock.  My camera died so I had to use my cell phone) You should be able to click on it to make it bigger.

There’s a second way to play…Make your own clock and post it on your blog.  Make sure each of the titles has something to do with time.  Make sure to leave a link in the comments.  You’ll be eligible for the second prize.

Wanna know what you’re playing for?  First prize (reader who guesses the most correct titles in my clock) will get a $24 Barnes & Noble giftcard.  The second randomly chosen winner will receive a $12 Barnes & Noble giftcard. (If you are not in the US I can do Book Depository)

If  you still want to extend your break with something bookish I do have another quiz going on with prizes.  The link is here.

  3. I like your clock! I love to do different stuff with autumn leaves :). I saw 11/22/63 by Stephen King; The Passage by Justin Cronin (I just finished it); Snow White and the seven Dwarfs (I think); The Sixes by Kate White; 24 hours by Greg Iles and The Tenth Circle by Jodi Picoult.

  4. This is such a cool challenge! Let’s see…

    1:00 is One Day.
    3:00 is Three Cups of Tea, I believe.
    7:00 looks like Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (I have always HATED that Disney spells it that way!).
    8:00 is Hard Eight by Janet Evanovich.
    10:00 is The Tenth Circle by Jodi Picoult (although I’m just guessing on the title, really).
    11;00 is Stephen King’s 11/22/63

    And that’s all I got.
