Friday Fun and Games

It’s Friday and maybe you’re looking for a bit of a diversion.  Look no further, amigos!  Today at Book, Line, and Sinker, I’m hosting a little game called Uncover the Covers and it’s super easy to play.  Test your book cover knowledge by identifying the following covers:

How many did you figure out?

I wish I could say this was all my clever idea but it’s not.  The game is one of many over on a super-fun site called Sporcle. Have you been there?  They have an entire page devoted literature games and quizzes!  Have at it!

Enjoy the weekend and I’ll see you back here on Monday.

    Sadly I only know one of them. Perhaps with a lot more consideration I could find two…but no. I only know one.

                                  This website is going to be the death of the tiny bit of spare time I was trying to hold onto. I don’t know if I should scold you or kiss you for sharing it.

                                    What fun! It is amazing how iconic some of these covers are … I knew many of them at a glance (even if I hadn’t read it). Glad to see my beloved Gatsby cover up there!
