24-hour Read-a-thon Hour 17 Mini-challenge – Time Flies -CLOSED

And the winners are…

there were 9 people who got them all correct and my son pulled WishfulfillmentSylvia for the $20 B&N gift card win.  

Booknerd Queen won the second drawing and has a $10 B&N gift card coming her way!  

Thank you all so much for playing!

Hi read-a-thonners!  I hope you’re all still awake and having fun.  There are two ways to play this mini-challenge

1- I made a fall Read-a-thon Clock.  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 in Hour 20.

Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan, First Frost by Sarah Addison Allen, Two From the Heart by James Patterson, et al., The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas, Four Weeks, Five People by Jennifer Yu, Fives and Twenty-Fives by Michael Pitre, Six Impossible Things by Fiona Wood, The Seventh Function of Language by Laurent Binet, Orphan #8 by Kim van Alkemade, Sweetness #9 by Eirik Clark, The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware, 11/22/63 by Stephen King, The Twelve Lives of Samuel Hawlry by Hannah Tinti2-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 $20 Barnes & Noble gift card.  The second randomly chosen winner will receive a $10 Barnes & Noble gift card. (If you are not in the US I can do Book Depository).

  23. Took a while to find them all. Really brilliant Mini-Challenge, though I think it’s more than “mini” in terms of time and brain power involved. I would like to do my own clock but as I don’t have a lot of reading time today (have to work) I want to focus more on reading. Thanks for a great challenge!
