This game is pretty easy. The first person posts a book, and than based on the cover the second person has to guess what that book is about, and what they would rate that story's "plot line" out of ten. Than they post their own cover. Here's an example:

Person 1;

Twilight (Twilight, #1) by Stephenie Meyer

Person 2;

A girl (maybe she's a vegetarian?) really likes apples. I'd say she also really likes giving other people apples. 3/10

Also, if you already know what the book is about, than just guess what the book is about based on the cover anyway - it's still really fun!

I'll go first :)
