August 2020 Mini Challenge: 100th Anniversary of the 19th Amendment
Begins: 01August20 / Ends: 31August20



August 26 marks the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th amendment, granting women the right to vote. In honor of this milestone I offer the following challenge tasks:

TASKS
Read a book ...
* Written by a woman author (be sure to link to the author's page)

* With a lone woman on the cover - MUST be able to see her face - POST the COVER

* With a Total page count that includes 2 or 6 - tell us the number of pages

* 1st published in a year with '19' intact (19xx or 2019) - tell us the year

* Whose title begins with a letter in V O T E (Ignore A, An, The)


===========================================


All books used must be a minimum of 100 pages long - Page length determined by HARDCOVER 1st edition. If there is no Hardcover, then the most popular paperback governs page #.

You may read in any format - text, audio or e-book. If using audio or e-book I suggest using Amazon.com's "look inside" feature to get a page number for your quote.

You MUST finish the book before you can claim credit for completing a task.

A book may be used for only one task, even if it would satisfy the challenge for multiple tasks.

EXAMPLE of a successful post:
Title begins with a letter in BLUE: - Unless You Can Be a Unicorn ✔ - 31May19


If you'd like to be recognized as finishing, the challenge, please post a new comment alerting me to your finish. I do not get notifications when you edit your original post.

Have Fun!

Sheila | 392 comments Question about the woman's face on the cover--should it be a front view or can it be a profile or three quarters view?

Good question ... you should be able to see at least half her face - eye, nose, mouth ... so profile or 3/4 view is fine.

Lee - the requirement in the original post is to tell us the YEAR ...
I checked and The Song of Princes was first published in 1997, so it's fine.
