Back of the Book Competition – Week 25

Back of Book CompetitionIt’s time for the Back of the Book Competition! In this competition, I show you the back cover of a book each week, and you need 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.

This is already week 25! Since the competition is planned to run until June 30th, that means there’s only 1 more week after this week! We’re nearing the end.

About this week’s book:

The cover is of a book I own, maybe I reviewed it recently, but… maybe not! It’s an old favorite of mine and definitely a classic!

Which book is this?

  • Cold Comfort Farm by Stella Gibbons
  • The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie by Muriel Spark
  • The Pursuit of Love by Nancy Mitford
  • I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith

To enter, fill out the FORM!

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.

Last week

The Queen of the South by Arturo Pérez-Reverte

Thanks everyone for playing!

This 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 is needed in case there are two people with the same name, or when someone uses their blog name one week and their real name the next).

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?

  1. What fun! Thanks for this!

    Easy as I own this book too 🙂

    • Leeswammes says:

      I think you’ve got it right every time, Cindy! After I posted this week’s Back of the Book post I really felt like starting that book. But I have enough to read… It’s a fun book.

  3. Louise says:

    Oh i loved this book!! 🙂

  4. dixie says:

    I love this little challenge each week!

  5. Suzanne says:

    I’m going to miss this after next week 😦

    • Leeswammes says:

      Dixie, Suzanne, I need to think of something new, to replace Back of the Book. I *could* continue but I believe in stopping while you’re ahead. So while most people are not bored of it, I’ll stop it. Maybe it’s something we can do again next year or so.

      But what now? 🙂

      • Suzanne says:

        I was thinking about a “first sentence” competition ….

      • Leeswammes says:

        Oh no! I’m so bad at those!! But it would be fun, yes. And the clever readers that I have would figure it out in no time!

        Actually, if you give people 4 choices then maybe it’s not that hard.

  6. Lena says:

    I have no idea what book it is. I am clueless.

    • Leeswammes says:

      I didn’t leave you many clues to work with Lena. Sorry about that. You could check each of the alternatives in and see if the description there matches that of the book (HINT). You can click on the book picture to increase the size so you can read the text better. (Have another go at guessing if you like).

      I keep trying to make it difficult as you people (the readers) are so clever in guessing what the book is. But sometimes I give too few clues…

I love comments! Let me know what you think.
