Bout of Books 26: Day 3

Bout of Books Challenges

Recreate Your Favorite Book Cover

Pick your favorite book and recreate it OR reimagine the cover either live (with yourself or a willing participant as the cover art) or drawing, sculpture, crafts, painting, etc.

Thanks for the idea, @vintagevixon94

I have so many favorite books so I decided to challenge myself by picking Snowflower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See. I searched for "Geisha with Fan" (Yes, I know...the book did not have geishas) on Google then used my phone app Photo Lab to create my cover. What do you think?

Today: Cover Love


These are some book covers that I love on my shelves.


I read only 20 pages from the Kubrick's Game (my eyesight was terrible yesterday) so instead I listened to 4 hours of Ready Player One. I only have 2.5 hours left on the audiobook.

I also participated in Day 1's challenges, which you can see here, as well as the Twitter Chat.

I finished listening to Ready Player One (2.5 hours) and wrote a review with my husband. You can check it out here.

I read 20 pages from Kubrick's Game and started reading Sweets & a Stabbing by Harper Lin on my Nook. So far I've read 18 pages.

So far so good!


  1. I really enjoyed the movie for Ready Player One - hope your week continues to go well!

    1. I haven't seen it yet, but I am looking forward to it.
