Maybe I'm looking at it the wrong way, but I expected the second art to be the easiest because it says "Read a book with a cover that is a work of art" and all covers are art, sooo I had planned to pick a book out of my to read list with the cover that draws me the most.

Hmm never thought of it that way. I always think artsy-fartsy and I don't read those kinds of books. Maybe I'll do them all after all. I'll just have to see what's on tap for the next few months.
