The September challenge is here! We are getting visual this month

Visually Pleasing

Get looking at your covers, find books within the categories below!

We're keeping it simple here, use your judgement and given the nature of our group keep mostly in the PNR/UF genres, your interpretation of it that is :-) (max 1 out of 3 from others though please!)

Link to the challenge widget!

You can also keep track in this thread if that woks better for you!

Unless you are doing easy (then you should read 3 romances) you may choose to read one none romance book. At least some of your books should be broadly PNR!

Levels

Looks Easy - 3 books
Middle looking - 6 books
Maximum Visual Pleasure - 9 books.
The challenge for September is a visual one. All about covers!

You choose books which have the following on the cover - Easy should be the first three, Medium & hard should include the first three. You can choose more than one from any category subject to above.

Hot Male (I'll leave you to interpret this one!)
Beautiful Woman
Artistic Cover

You pick a cover which has (say) a "Hot Male" on it. This is one of your books for the challenge.

You can choose how many books you read in the challenge and each cover is different - see the list.

Everyone does the first 3 on the list - then depending on how many books you choose you can select from the rest.

Does that help Colleen? If not shout again :-)

Johanna (jothie) I was wondering why the average book number for each participant has risen to 24 books? Isn't it impossible to succeed this way?
Maybe someone can explain that to me...

Angela (angieerickson) | 164 comments The challenge is for 3, 6, or 9...and if you read within those parameters than you've succeeded in the challenge and should be proud. I set my goal to 9 but wanted to keep going...so I did. I read 25 books, but that doesn't make my success any better than someone else's success. I read more because I'm obsessive and on bedrest, so I have the time to spend reading. It's given me a headache though, so I'm taking a week off and watchin' some tv.

It's gone up because some people have been putting down 300 books for the challenge thinking it's the yearly one

Johanna (jothie) @Leanne: Oh, I understand. Well, that's too bad, now we sort of "fail" just because people didn't realize that.

Priscilla (ppomeroy72) | 364 comments Changed mine to middle looking and I am finished.


Ninab (Honesty is the Best Policy)  | 47 comments Think that's all I'm going to be able to finish this month (post #13). I guess I made it to maximum at 9 books.

Jen (reader44ever) | 4475 comments Oops, I forgot to update this challenge when I was getting all caught up for September the other day...Out of the books I read in September, I was able to find 13 to fit the 14 categories. :) Maximum Viewing Pleasure achieved!!
