Books on Books Mini-Challenge – Closed, winner

Welcome Read-a-Thon friends!  I’m in it for the whole 24 hours today, not a luxury I get every time.  Obviously we all love books.  I went through my shelves this week and pulled the ones that have books on the cover and then I threw (carefully placed) some leaves from our maple tree on them and took a picture.

I’m giving away $24 to Barnes & Noble (US winner) OR the Book Depository (international).

There are 2 ways to enter

1. Guess as many of the titles you can in my picture.  12 entries available (1 for every correct answer). I’ll periodically hide your comments so you won’t be tempted to cheat 😉

AND/OR

2. Pull some books from your own shelves that have books on the cover, take a picture, post it, and post the link in the comment section.  Good for 6 entries.

I hope you are all having fun and I’ll be by to visit everyone who enters 🙂

I’ll be drawing for a winner at 6 pm EST (hour 11)

    The Uncommon Reader
    The Thirteenth Tale
    Bridget Jones Diary

  4. Elizabeth says:

    Fun challenge! The ones I recognized were:
    4. The Thirteenth Tale
    7. Bridget Jones’ Diary
    12. The Last Lecture
    Not the most impressive performance, but at least I got a couple.

    As far as the second challenge, the only books I could find upstairs (not packed away) that had books on them were The Lost Memoirs of Jane Austen, The Know-It-All, The Last Lecture, and The Reader so I don’t know if that counts to take a picture of!

  9. Tami says:

    In no specific order:

    The Uncommon Reader b Alan Bennett
    Gunn’s Golden Rules by Tim Gunn – incidently, one of the best books ever 🙂
    The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Satterfield
    Bridget Jones’s Diary by Helen Fielding
    How to Buy a Love of Reading by Tanya Egan Gibson
    This Book is Overdue by Marilyn Johnson
    The Know-it-all by A. J. Jacobs
    The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch

    You stumped me on the rest. Fun puzzle!

  10. Chala says:

    The Uncommon Reader by Alan Bennett
    Gunn’s Golden Rules by Tim Gunn
    The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield
    The Reader by Bernhard Schlink
    Bridget Jones’s Diary by Helen Fielding

    That’s all I can figure out 🙂 Fun challenge, thanks for hosting it!

    First off let me start by saying this is one of my favorite mini-challenges. I love it because it challenges me so…I really loved the time it was the circle with the books all correspoding with a number in the title. It’s just such a great challenge.

    Here is my list:
    1. The Uncommon Reader by Alan Bennett
    2. Gunn’s Golden Rules: Life Lessons for Making It Work by Tim Gunn
    3. Life as We Knew it by Susan Beth Pfeffer
    4. The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield
    5. The Lost Memoirs of Jane Austen by Syrie James
    6. The Reader by Bernard Schlink
    7. Bridget Jones Diary by Helen Fielding
    8. This Book is Overdue by Marilyn Johnson
    9. How to Buy a Love of Reading by Tanya Egan Wilson
    10. The Know-It-All by AJ Jacobs
    11. My Reading Life by Pat Conroy
    12. The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch

    And here is my picture. I thought I would find more but this was it after 4 bookshelves….probably about 350-400 books. I didn’t look on my classics shelves or dig through piles and boxes but I thought this was a good showing and no repeats of ones you showed. I did have many! You have a great library by the way! Thanks for the challenge.
