I am withdrawing this because I just found a really cool tool that analyzes colour in an image and tells you the percentage of each colour that the image is made up of. The Atkinson book is only 66.8% red (actually, most of that red is "orange".) The Marshall book is 84% turquoise so it would qualify.

Off to find another red book! And thanks to the 2016 Olympics Challenge group for posting about the tool.

Book Concierge read The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafón and rated it 5 stars. While I love Zafon's writing, I felt the search for Julian Carax was confusing in that the main character, Daniel Sempre, seemed identical in so many ways. There were so many parallels, I felt they were meant to be the same character, so I felt dissatisfied with the book as a whole. I rated it 4 stars. Read 7/7/16--487 pages

I have talked about Married with Zombies a lot since I've read it. I really need to change the rating. I've talked about it so much. I really like it now. I think it should be 3.5 stars.
I even been trying to find the second book of the series. No luck yet.

So funny! When I chose the book, going from the small image on Goodreads, I thought the moon was up in the left corner. It was only when I got the actual book that I realized that that was the earth, and the moon was only that rectangle under the flag and his arm!
