The Back of the Book Competition – Week 2
January 13, 2011 12 Comments
It’s time for the Back of the Book Competition! In this competition, I will show you the back cover of a book each week, and it’s up to you to guess which book it is. There are prizes to be won, and the more often you participate, the more chances you have to win.
Please send in your own pictures! You will be featured on my blog and you will get a win for the week that your cover is placed. See full information here.
Today’s featured blog is Sue from Bibliosue. She is from Illinois, USA and she reads and reviews mainly literary fiction, but enjoys a good non-fiction every now and then, too. She’s read War and Peace recently and is now attempting a novel in French! Go have a look and see for yourself.
This week’s book is a lot more difficult than last week’s! Good luck.
Sue says: “It is a story set in Poland just before, during and after World War II and during the 1990s after the fall of Communism. It is a really wonderful book.”
Which book is this?
- Unlikely Soldiers by Jonathan F. Vance
- A Long Time Ago and Essentially True by Brigid Pasulka
- We Are All Made of Glue by Marina Lewycka
- Mr Rosenblum Dreams of English by Natasha Solomons
Fill out the form HERE. Anyone can enter and you can start joining the competition at any moment. The form will be valid until the next post of the Back of the Book competition is up.
Even if you have no idea, enter anyway. At the end of the competition (in June), everyone that played is entered to win a book. The number of times you will be entered is equal to the number of weeks you played (with a correct or wrong answer). So, play often, have more chances to win the book. In addition, there is a prize for the person that guessed correctly most often.
The book last week was: The Beautiful Miscellaneous by Dominic Smith
The current standings are:
19 people= 1 point
2 people = 0 points
From next week, I’ll show the scores by name.
All 21 players have 1 participation point
Thanks for everyone that played last week!!
Anyone can join in, you can join in at any time. Why not this week? You don’t need a blog. Just a name and an email address is enough (Email address will be used only to keep track of entrants over the weeks. Plus I don’t like completely anonymous entries). Send in a book picture if you’d like (not compulsory at all).
