Challenge Closed: #READ-A-THON Mini-Challenge: Recreate the Cover (9 AM to Noon Eastern)
Choosing among the readings that you're tackling for this readathon, recreate (or improve!) one of the book covers, magazine covers, or ads.
This challenge may involve you posing for a photo in a quickly assembled period costume (completed with a bed sheet toga!), it may involve sketches, finger paint, the careful positioning of stuffed animals, recruiting friends and loved ones to model, or creating an image on a website like fotoflexer.
Get up, move, think artistically and re-create the cover of a book you're reading or plan to read. Most importantly, have fun.
Post your version of the new and improved cover beside a photo of the book's original cover on your blog or other personal website by noon (EST) and leave a link to your post in the comments to this challenge.
One winner will be chosen to receive an online, ten-dollar, gift card to Barnes and Noble, Amazon.com, or another book-providing website of his or her choosing.
Update: This challenge is now closed! Thank you to everyone who entered! It was such a difficult decision among the readers who took the time to create covers, that I wound up using a random number generator to choose the winner.
The ten-dollar giftcard will go to Avid Reader. You can see the recreated book cover here.
Thank you to everyone who participated! You created some wonderful book covers!!!!!!
