Jane (PS) | 13552 comments Treasure Hunt (Quarterly Challenge) - aka Barbie & Ken
Duration: 15 February – 14 May 2012


We are having a treasure hunt! This quarterly challenge is based solely on book covers. Join up to read 5, 10, 15 or 20+ books over the next 90 days. If you can find one of the below listed items on a book cover that book may be used for this challenge. No item can be used twice. Only one item per book cover. So find these items on the covers of your books, then get reading!

Items for selection:
Clothing (or predominant part thereof):
cowboy hat, top hat, beanie, singlet/sleeveless top, shirt, pants, skirt, dress, underpants, bra, stockings, jacket, business shoes, high-heels, boots, socks, sandals, scarf, tie/cravat, belt

Other items:
Personal - eye glasses (sunglasses are fine), ring, pendant/necklace, bracelet/arm-band, earring or other piercing, tattoo, watch/pocket-watch, fan, hand-mirror
Weapons - sword, knife, gun
Nice to have - flower, candle, chocolates/candy, sports ball or other sports equipment, playing cards, piece of fruit, book, computer
Transportation - boat, car, motorbike, bicycle, plane (helicopter may be substituted for plane), carriage/stagecoach, horse if it is actively being used as transport (ridden or pulling carriages)

Earn a bonus point (and the title 'Barbie' or 'Ken' for the day) if you can completely dress (full body coverage including underwear and a hat - a jacket is not necessary) and accessorise yourself through your book selection. To accessorise, you must have at least:-
Personal items - 5 of 9
Weapons - 2 of 3
Nice to have - 4 of 8
Transportation - 2 of 7

You can read any balance of items above. You can read any genre. Books from other challenges may be used. Audio books may be used. There is no minimum length. All discussions, questions and lists are to be posted in this thread. Repost your list as you progress and when you have finished.

Could everyone please post their covers on their list? This way we can all see their items as chosen...

If you aren't sure how to show a cover on your list, here is how you do it:
*Click on the 'add book/author' link at the top of the comment box.
*Type in the name of your book, and then hit search.
*Select the book (or go to 'other editions' if your cover doesn't show up the first time)
*Make sure you have the 'cover' button marked at the bottom of the dialogue box
*Click 'add'

This will put a line of text at the base of your comments box. If this isn't where you want it, highlight all text including the boxed brackets ([]), and cut and paste it into your list.

Judy I'm in for 15. I'll post as I go.

A question- would one shoe/high-heel, stocking, etc. on the cover work, or does it have to be two?

Jane (PS) | 13552 comments One (of a pair) is fine, Judy - so long as it is clear that is what the item is :)

message 13: by ~KarenH~, Moderator (new)

~KarenH~ | 4063 comments Ok Jane, I have a question (or two) - how much wiggle room is there on the items you have listed? For example, would dog tags work for necklace/pendant, and would a helicopter qualify as a plane?

You can pick any combination of the items to make up your list. But unless you are dressed with separate items of underwear (just underpants if you are dressing your books as a boy), you can't achieve the heady heights of bonus-land...

It looks as if you are going for bonus territory, in which case you need to separate underwear to a man's pair of jocks (not sure what the cover of manhunting has on it as I type :) and you'll need shoes and socks.

****edit****

OK - boxer shorts - that works. Just need to put some footwear on if you are going for the bonus :)


message 15: by Jane (PS), Moderator (last edited Feb 12, 2012 08:53PM) (new)

Jane (PS) | 13552 comments Just to clarify, you can have any weighting or mix of items when building your list. You only need to collect the stated minimum quantities of accessories and make sure are dressed (male or female - whatever works for you) if you are going for the bonus point.

Mojca | 1188 comments I'm in...Not sure as to how many items I'm going for. Going with the flow, I guess.


message 18: by Mojca (new)

Mojca | 1188 comments Question: can we use one book for multiple items?

A guy wearing only a pair of pants and a gun (very popular in the covers, I think), could we use both pants and gun or does only one item per cover apply?

Jane (PS) | 13552 comments Sallie - you have two flowers. You can only use one item once. Can you find another item to hit 18?

And if you are going for the bonus, can you add a pair of underpants?? LOL! (I know not everyone wears them, but I think we need them to be completely dressed for this challenge ;)


message 23: by ~KarenH~, Moderator (new)

~KarenH~ | 4063 comments Jane, a couple of things - I asked a question yesterday (msg 13) that I think got missed in the shuffle: How much wiggle room is there on the items you have listed? For example, would dog tags work for necklace/pendant, and would a helicopter qualify as a plane?

Also, just to verify, I'm assuming no minimum length for the books, and audiobooks are acceptable?

Sorry Karen - I did miss those queries :(

I'll accept both your substitutes :)

I think if there is wiggle room or some doubt, we'll just treat it on a case by case basis...


message 27: by Jane (PS), Moderator (new)

Jane (PS) | 13552 comments Ooops - I didn't answer the length question.

There is no minimum length and audio books are fine :)

Jane (PS) | 13552 comments Becky wrote: "And do we have to choose all the books ahead of time, or can we design our ensembles as we go?"

Either option is fine. Some ppl like to plan ahead, others just fill in as they go. I'm fine with either option...

Thanks, Jane! I was going to have to fine someplace else to use Nightfire (Protectors #3) by Lisa Marie Rice if the dog tags didn't work, and as you can see, there aren't many other options! :)

Well, I make no promises - I'm not much of a reviewer on my best day! ;) But I will say that when it comes to Romantic Suspense, Lisa Marie Rice is one of my top 2 or 3 favorite authors (writing both as Lisa Marie Rice and also as Elizabeth Jennings), and definitely an auto-buy!


message 33: by Nicola (new)

Nicola | 644 comments I'm going to give this a try, posting as I go. One question - does the number of books I choose have to be in a multiple of 5, or can I stop in-between (i.e. 17 books)?

Well, you are meant to pick one of the levels, but no-one will slap your wrist for an in-between number. Feel free to target 17. :)

Would ice skates be an acceptable substitute for shoes/boots?

Other Items:
Personal: I found a brooch, Man's arm band, lady's bracelet, watch/pocket watch, key and a hand mirror. Are they all acceptable?

Weapons: One of the books I want to read next month has the hero holding a battle axe. Is this okay?

Nice to Have: Other foods, candy/chocolates, cooking utensils, dishes, silverware, other sports equipment including baseball bat, hockey stick & puck, pets. Acceptable?

Transportation: Bicycles? Horse? Horse & carriage? Stagecoach?

LOL!!!

I have to eat lunch - I'll be back in an hour or so to address all these issues :)

*****edit******

Clothing:
Are we allowed to count kilts, belts or vest/waistcoat for men's clothing?
A: I will accept kilts (skirts) and vest/waistcoat (singlet/sleeveless top) - but you'll still need a shirt if you are going for bonus :) I'll add the belt to the list for those dressing Ken but it isn't necessary for the bonus point.

For ladies can we count mufflers?
A: Yes - as replacement for the scarf.

Would ice skates be an acceptable substitute for shoes/boots?
A: LOL - yes, they are pretty much boots with attachments :)

Other Items:
Personal: I found a brooch, Man's arm band, lady's bracelet, watch/pocket watch, key and a hand mirror. Are they all acceptable?
A: To allow for greater breadth, I'll put bracelet on the list which can encompass arm-band, the watch and pocket watch and the hand mirror )for all the historical readers). But no to brooch & key.

Weapons: One of the books I want to read next month has the hero holding a battle axe. Is this okay?
A: I'll accept this as a very short sword blade, but I won't put it on the list :)

Nice to Have: Other foods, candy/chocolates, cooking utensils, dishes, silverware, other sports equipment including baseball bat, hockey stick & puck, pets. Acceptable?
A: No to other food
Yes to chocolate/candy
No to cooking utensils, dishes, silverware
Yes to other sports equipment
No to pets.


Transportation: Bicycles? Horse? Horse & carriage? Stagecoach?
A: I'll accept all of the above so long as the horses are being used as transportation and not just part of the picture.

Killian (KillianPerry) | 51 comments Going for 20! I'll update as I add more... Also, sorry about the million edits I made to this thing...

I have a question about "full body coverage". A few of the items in the list seem more like accessories (scarf, belt, tie). Looking at my list below I think all I have left is underpants??

Also, by adding the underpants to "Clothing" it puts my total at 21. Is there a number cap for this category if we are going the bonus points, because if you do the total for the other categories all you have left is 7 spaces. Can I go "commando"? :D
