Read-a-thon Mini-Challenge: Book Puzzle

Welcome reader-a-thon-ers!  I'm super excited to be hosting my first mini-challenge this year.  Hopefully this will be a fun break from your reading that will let you exercise other parts of your brain!  

For this challenge, you will be creating a Book Puzzle.  Essentially, this is a series of pictures, graphics, or photos that you put together that will describe a book title.  It isn't too easy to explain in words, so I'll show you.  I just started a biweekly game called Name That Book where I do book puzzles and let people guess the titles.  Here's an example from that first one:



This series of pictures illustrates the title Book of a Thousand Days by Shannon Hale. 

Now it's your turn to create your own Book Puzzle (or you can create more than one - they are quite fun).  Once you've posted your puzzle on your blog, come back and leave me the direct link in the Mr. Linky below.  And be sure to visit others' puzzles - it's lots of fun to guess!  I'll be picking a winner (randomly of course, I'm not good at judging awesomeness) who will receive a 10$ gift certificate to Amazon.  This is international since I'll be sending it via email.  Now go forth and create! [Mini-challenge is now closed and the winner has been contacted - nfmgirl (Cerebral Girl) - thanks for playing everyone!]

If you enjoy book puzzles, stop by my blog again on Monday for another episode of my Name That Book game. 


If you buy through my Amazon linkage, I will get a very small percentage

  13. This is a great one. Not sure mine is challenging enough, but most of the books on my shelf can't be turned into puzzles very easily.

  16. Kanaye, ah - I've never heard of it. That's probably why I couldn't figure it out.
