PRACTICAL COLOUR COVER Guide

The general agreement on colours is that
1. we use our eyes and common sense
2. in borderline cases (purple or pink... etc) we put it to the Captain's group for decision.
TINEYE IS BANNED FROM THIS CHALLENGE. :)

Hello Hello fellow Sloth-ers!!



Aren't we an adorable bunch? :-D

I know, totally cute!

While we're lazing around until the challenge starts, please swing by here to get to know your team. When you do, please link your challenge shelf.

Melindam and I will be your captain for these sinful Towers and we're the slothful kind. Apparently ;-)

Please read through the rules carefully. If you're unsure on something, please read them again. Then, if you have questions, feel free to ask here and we will do our best to make things as clear to you as possible. Most of you are team challenge veterans, so you know the drill :-)

Most importantly: choose your books wisely, grasshoppers sloths and have fun!!

Melindam | 3145 comments Even though I never played/read with any of you in the same Team before, the Veterans' names are familiar from former TT and UNO and other challenges.

Gemma, Melissa, no worries!

We can safely promise you that it will be a lot of fun and every new challenge presents us all with a learning curve.

On a practical note, please study the rules and if you have questions, just shoot and we can sort it out now or along the way.

We are under Eldarwen's guidance, so no fear... just a crazy ride....

UMMM... RIGHT, E.? :)

Melindam | 3145 comments Thanks Cat. Much appreciated. :)


message 31: by Melissa (new)

Melissa | 247 comments I have a question, when it says it has to show up on the first page of the top shelves, does that mean on the main page where you have the cover of the book and all the info about the book? Or when you tap more shelves and it brings you to the first page of “top shelves” and there are about 100 top shelves?

The second option. :-)


(Just for future reference, if only the shelves mentioned on the book's page are considered, it's generally referred to as MPG - Main Page Genre.)

Gotcha! I always wondered what MPG was :)

I think I found a bingo for Pride.

No worries, there'll be tons of snooping going on, yes, but captains are operating on a "let's be nice to each other" policy, so you can leave it ;-)

Eldarwen | 10346 comments Mod
But seriously, that's violet? I always thought it was blue haha. But I haven't actually held a book in my hands yet, so I have no idea what it looks like in real life.


message 37: by Melissa (new)

Melissa | 247 comments I was kidding, lol. I thought it was blue too! I only have the kindle version but that’s what tineye says.

Thanks Melissa, though I fear this is one of those covers that might prove tricky. I also see it as blue, not as violet. :(

But this leads me to the PRACTICAL COLOUR COVER issue.

What the general agreement on colours is that


1. we use our eyes and common sense

2. in borderline cases (purple or pink... etc) and to decide on percentage, we use tineye

3. if it's still questionable, we put it to the Captain's group for decision.

You sure it can’f Be all of our computer monitors/phones making it look blue, ha ha! Well, at least it can still get points for being over 50% a single color or for genre.



message 41: by Joy (new)

Joy | 281 comments Hey all! This is my third tower teams, though I had to drop out of my team last year for personal reasons. I'm hoping to finish strong this year!

My shelf: https://www.goodreads.com/review/list...

I just moved into a new apt, so I'm hoping to get all my books unpacked and organized for maximum points before the end of the month.

That is quite the endeavour, Joy haha. But a wonderful thing to do! I loved unpacking and organising my books when I moved :-)

message 49: by Joy (new)

Joy | 281 comments I'm excited about the new apartment because I finally have room for a bookshelf. Since college all my books have been sitting in closets or in huge stacks on my dresser or on the floor.

I was pleased when I found out I was on Team Sloth for the opportunity to look up sloth pics and gifs.
