#BoutofBooks: 4.0 Read-A-Thon Challenge: Books & Shoes + Day 4 Updates

Bout of Books Read-a-Thon

Challenge

Books & Shoes Challenge hosted by The Reading Housewives of Indiana 

books and shoes

What do books and shoes have in common you might be asking? Not much, but people obsess over books and they obsess over shoes. Why not put them both together?!

Here are two examples:

Four from DivergentTwilight and Shoes

To complete the Books & Shoes mini-challenge you must:
  • Take any book you like and match up a character in the book OR the cover of the book to a shoe. The requirement is to only do one pairing, but feel free to do as many as you like. More pairings doesn’t give you more entries. You don’t have to do a collage like the examples. Feel free to be creative.  
  • Add the picture to your Bout of Books 4.0 update/goal post OR post on Twitter using the #boutofbooks hashtag so other participants can see it. Only one is required, but feel free to post in both places.
  • You MUST be a Bout of Books 4.0 participant AND have a goal and/or update post in order to enter this challenge/giveaway. I will check.
  • Once you have completed the challenge, come back to my blog and link up your goal/update post with your completed challenge or the direct url to your Tweet in the linky provided below. You are then entered into the giveaway.
PRIZE:  a book of their choice from The Book Depository up to $12

Again, you MUST be a Bout of Books 4.0 participant AND have a goal/update post of some kind. The giveaway is International. This challenge ends TONIGHT at 11:59 pm CST. This is a 24 hours challenge/giveaway. One entry per person.
