Weekly Geek #15: Book Covers

31 August 2008

This week's WG is on book covers. I'm supposed to post close ups of book cover(s) and you're supposed to guess the title and author of the book.

My rules -> I collect postcards and LOVE to receive and send snail mail, so I'm sending postcards to the first people to guess correctly! 

If you guess only the author or the title, you'll receive one postcard. If you could guess both the author and title, then you'll receive two postcards. If you guessed correctly for more than one picture, you could choose between receiving postcards, or a copy of my latest zine, superfairyanimal #11 (while stock lasts :p). I know, sending books would be more impressive, but this way I get to send to more people. 

Happy guessing! I think they are fairly easy to guess... probably...

[edit September 7th: no one guessed #1 and #7, so I've put up the answers below!)

The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
(answered by Huda)
Many Waters by Madeline L'Engle
(answered by Melanie!)
84 Charing Cross Road (answered by Terri!)
the author's name haven't been guessed yet... the first to comment gets the 2nd card for this pic!

The Orphan's Tales: In The Night Garden by Catherynne M. Valente
(answered by Ichigo)
The Yellow Fairy Book by Andrew Lang
(answered by Joanne)
The Secret Commonwealth, Robert Kirk

To those who are supposed to receive snail mail (postcards or zines) from me, just e-mail me the address I could send them to at -> marisarepin[at]gmail(dot)com

I'm pretty sure #4 is 84 Charing Cross Road -- or The Duchess of Bloomsbury Street?

marineko August 31, 2008 at 4:26 AM  

Yup, it's 84 Charing Cross Road!
You get 1 postcard :D

Melanie August 31, 2008 at 8:12 AM  

Is #3 Madeleine L'engle's "Many Waters"?

Ali August 31, 2008 at 9:34 AM  

I feel like I have #3 sitting on a bookshelf around here somewhere... Can't get it, though! I'm thinking, I'm thinking...

marineko August 31, 2008 at 9:36 AM  

melanie - yes, it is! you get 2 postcards :D

marineko August 31, 2008 at 9:38 AM  

ali - sorry, melanie already guessed correctly for #3.

Kim August 31, 2008 at 9:52 AM  

Is #5 The Golden Compass by Phillip Pullman?

marineko August 31, 2008 at 11:52 AM

I am confident that #6 is the Yellow Fairy Book (Andrew Lang) It was one of my favorite bedtime books when I was little :)

marineko August 31, 2008 at 7:24 PM  

joanne - you're right! i love Andrew Lang's fairy books; i only own the blue and yellow one at the moment, though. you win 2 postcards!

#2 is Pride and Prejudice! (I think). And I actually suck at quessing games >_<

huda - you're right! 2 postcards for you, because you named the author to me in person.

Chris September 5, 2008 at 8:30 AM  

Wow, I have no idea!

The postcards are gorgeous! I adore the fairy picture, and the Blythe one is so cute!
