10.4 - A Token Task
Read a book with a monopoly token on the cover. For the purposes of this task, we'll use this list of tokens: Monopoly Pieces. Images on the book cover must correspond to the token (i.e., a top hat would work but not a cowboy hat. A horse with a rider will work, but a horse alone will not. A Scottie dog works, other breeds don't, etc.). Rejected tokens work. Required: Include the cover when you post.

These won't work:

Wild cats (lions, tigers, leopards, etc) will not work for the cat token - house cats only
Double Indemnity by James M. Cain - only top hats work for the top hat token - works for shoes, though (see post #2)
The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work A Practical Guide from the Country's Foremost Relationship Expert by John M. Gottman - the ring must have a jewel in it, as shown on the token

There is, but it's really tiny and hard to see. I'll put the book in post 2 as an approved book. When you claim the task, please let DLMRose know that it's on the approved list so she doesn't have to go hunting for a bigger picture. Enjoy!


message 7: by Elizabeth (last edited Feb 15, 2014 10:12AM) (new)

Elizabeth (elizabeth_greece) | 1183 comments I was wondering about the shoes. Would it be ok if there's a pair of man's shoes on the cover, eg. The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger ?

Barbara (barbaraallen) | 76 comments Would the pair of high heels in the corner of the cover work for this task??


Treachery in Death (In Death, #32) by J.D. Robb


message 10: by Delmy (new)

Delmy  (needfulreads) would these work for the cat token?

The New Yorker Book of Cat Cartoons by The New Yorker The Cat Inside by William S. Burroughs


message 11: by Prajakta (new)

Prajakta | 150 comments Would unSweetined A Memoir by Jodie Sweetin unSweetined: A Memoir work? She is wearing shoes in the cover picture?


message 12: by Kristina Simon (new)

Kristina Simon (kristinasimon) | 10918 comments Mod
Shoes work, so The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger , Treachery in Death (In Death, #32) by J.D. Robb , and unSweetined A Memoir by Jodie Sweetin work.

The New Yorker Book of Cat Cartoons by The New Yorker appears to consist primarily of images without a substantial written component and is, therefore, not allow by the SRC rules. But The Cat Inside by William S. Burroughs will work for a cat.

The cat's OK, but the book won't work because it's only 96 pages long.

The cat works, but the car won't. Since the name of the token is race car, the car actually has to be a race car not a regular car.
