Jane Hindley | 23 comments I am reading Here's to Us by Elin Hildebrand. The copy I have shows a lighthouse in the distance on the cover. The same cover isn't shown on Goodreads. Can I still use this book for No. 9 on the challenge. Also how do you post the covers of the books. Thanks.

Hi Jane

If the edition you're using has the lighthouse then yes, it will qualify for the challenge.

Though, is the below your cover?

Here's to Us by Elin Hilderbrand

To add a cover (P.S. I only know how to do this in a browser, not on an app): Click on "add book/author" above the comment box. Type in the title of your book. When you see your book, click on "other editions" if you're searching for a specific edition. Make sure that the "cover" option is selected at the bottom of the pop-up before you click on "Add".

Yvette Farinha (yvief) I LIKE this idea a LOT! Have done that old-fashioned thing called printing, and will tick these off one by one...great notion!

message 13: by Yvette (new)

Yvette Farinha (yvief) Good arvo all.
So, this idea to read books with various descriptions on the cover, I love it and will begin to tick my list. I'm being facetious now, so forgive me, but if you need a book with a lighthouse on the cover - you are more than welcome to read mine :-)
Healing Hearts has the Umhlanga lighthouse on its cover - I live here. This book was recently released so I am in need of exposure. Hope that's okay to say in here. If not, I apologise in advance.
Thank you,
Yvie F
