Back of the Book Competition – Week 6
February 10, 2011 14 Comments
It’s time for the Back of the Book Competition! In this competition, I 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 Chinoiseries. She’s from The Netherlands. About her blog “Mostly about food, films, books and a bit about knitting. Also, my cats may be featured once in a while”. She runs the Chinese Literature Challenge, which is a great way to get yourself acquainted with Chinese writing.
About Chinoiseries: “I enjoy books with plots that are not too straightforward, whether literary fiction, crime or fantasy: stories that are off the beaten path so to speak. When I’m not reading, I can often be found knitting or cooking.”
This week’s book: Through meeting a Portuguese woman, a man finds out about an interesting book and travels to find out more about the author.
Which book is this?
- Night Train to Lisbon by Pascal Mercier
- Night Train to Lisbon by Emily Grayson
- The Night in Lisbon by Erich Maria Remarque
- A Small Death in Lisbon by Robert Wilson
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, as you will gain a participation point. The more participation points you have, the more entries you will get for the final prize draw.
The book last week was: The Adventures of a Bed Salesman by Michael Kumpfmuller. Cindy from The only Cin chose the book. About the book: “A man charms his way into women’s lives while his wife can do nothing but accept it. Although he is successful in both his job and his love life, he’s not happy.”
15 people got this right (18 entrants). 3 people chose the wrong answer.
The current standings are:
Avis 4; thebookbee 1; cbjames 1; Chinoiseries 5; Dorte H 4; Ellie 1; Frana, Host 1; Helen 3; Jenna 1; JoV 0; Julie 1; Laura 0; Leslie 5; Misha 5; Margot 1; Memory 1; Mystica 1; Nadine Nys 3; nomadreader 3; Nose in a book 3; Novroz 3; Picky Girl 1; Rachel 5; raidergirl3 1; Rikki 4; Sabrina 2; sakura 1; Samantha 2; Shelleyrae 4; SiNn 2; Suzanne 3; tanabata 3; The Only Cin 5; The Window Seat Reader 1; Uniflame 2.
All 18 players from last week got 1 participation point. Everyone has 1-5 participation points (I will not specify this per person yet, as it’s only relevant for the prizes at the end of the competition).
Thanks to everyone who 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).
Everyone is entered for a prize at the end of the competition, even if you only played once. But the more you play, the more entries you’ll get in the prize draw (even if you got some of the answers wrong).
Send in a book picture if you’d like (not compulsory at all).
Have you filled out the form?
