Even though I don’t always have time to participate in all of them, one of my favorite things to do during a read-a-thon are the challenges. Today’s comes courtesy of Wickedly Bookish. Here’s the info directly from her blog:
Are you ready to get cozy in your favorite reading spot, surrounded by books while you sip your favorite beverage? I know I am! While you are spending those hours in literary bliss, why not double the fun with a little cover scavenger hunt? There is a list of items to keep an eye out for below. You may use one cover for multiple items.
This challenge runs for the duration of the RAT so you will have a chance to not only find the items on the books you read, but also on the books other Summer Wrap-Up RAT participants are reading. Make a post showing us the covers with the items you have found (you don’t need to find them all) and link it in the comments section of this post! This can be done anytime during the RAT. A winner will be chosen randomly through Rafflecopter, so don’t forget to register yourself through the widget!
One cover hunter will win a $10 Amazon Gift Card or $10 Book Depository purchase. (Winner’s choice)
Must be a participant of the RAT, be registered through the Raffelcopter, and have your post linked up in the comments section before the end of the RAT; 11:59pm August 12th.

This sounds so fun! I have done a challenge in the past where you search for a specific book cover, so this is an interesting twist. Yet another way to find out about lots of new books! Cool. I will update as I go, putting the book titles/authors/links next to the item. I am going to look right now in my TBR pile and see if I have anything that fits to get a head start…hmmmm, nada. Oh well…As Dory might sing: “Just keep looking! Just keep looking!”
UPDATE: OK, I have finished the challenge. Here’s a photo collage of the covers I found. I have put the book titles/authors after the items (above) so you can see what I chose. I do admit to taking a little bit of liberty with some of them 🙂
