Readathon Mini-Challenge: Artful Covers

Readathon Mini-Challenge: Artful Covers

Hello, Readathon participants! Welcome to the Artful Covers Mini-Challenge!

Find an artsy image that you think would make a great cover for your current read. Please make sure your selection is free and legal to use, and be sure to credit the artist/photographer. You can also take a photo or draw a quick picture yourself, if you’re artistic. Share your cover on your blog, Twitter, or Instagram. If you don’t use social media (or if you’re too focused on reading), you can post it in the comments here.

An example: Picked Off by Linda Lovely is on my stack for today. The main character lives on a goat farm. I wish I could take credit for the picture, but I had my daughter paint it for me.

I found this image on I think it could make a beautiful book cover, just not for anything I’m reading right now.

Now it’s your turn! Find or create a cover and share. We’ll use the hashtag #artfulcovers in addition to #readathon. Also, it would be awesome if you’d tag me, @carolsnotebook. One randomly selected participant will win a $10 Amazon gift card or a book of their choice up to $10 from the Book Depository.


The winner is @spinesinaline. Here’s her tweet.

Thanks to all who participated. I loved seeing all your artful covers!

  2. This is a lovely idea for a challenge! I’ve just posted my image on my Instagram stories 🙂 It’s a detail the f Raeburn’s Mrs. John Campbell of Mulberry (1802), and it fits Invitation to the Waltz, by Rosamond Lehmann 🙂
