Dewey’s Readathon: Mini-challenge – Treasure Hunt

THIS CHALLENGE IS OVER. The winner is Kyley H. I

Welcome to my mini-challenge for Dewey’s Readathon.


This challenge is a treasure hunt. Just find a book with one of the listed items on the cover. Here’s a list of items I want you to find:

1. A tree: DSC_0029
2. Snow: DSC_0028
3. A weapon:


You get 1 point for each found item, so if you can’t find any books with snow on them, don’t worry, you can still enter!
Take a picture and upload it to your blog, Instagram, Twitter or whatever site you prefer – it doesn’t matter if you’re uploading one picture with all books in it or if you’re uploading three different pictures, just leave a link to all your entries, please. If you are somewhere without all of your books, you can just take a picture of the covers from Goodreads or somewhere else, that’s fine too.

If you leave a link down below, I’ll draw one lucky winner at the beginning of hour 11 – this gives you 4 hours to enter. Please tell me in your comment how many items you found and don’t forget to leave your email so I can get in touch with you if you’re the winner. 🙂
The winner will choose a prize from the Prize page at the Readathon page.

Happy hunting and happy reading! 🙂

  31. It’s hour 15. It’s time to shake it all up, and maybe change the reading material for something lighter, faster, easier, funnier. You’ve earned it. Go for a graphic novel, a comedy, a poem, a book of verse, anything, but make a change, just for a few pages or chapters. Oh… and now is the time for one of those super snacks you’ve been saving! 😉 #TeamMrPopper

    P.S. – Klokken er 4 om morgen – du kan klar det her, men det er sikkert llidt hårdt lige nu! 😉

  32. See that? It’s the sun. Have a quick look outside. That’s right, leave the imaginary world for a moment, take a quick walk around the garden, the city block, down to the store for another special treat – you’ve earned it. You’ve worked hard this read-a-thon, now enjoy the last couple hours. It’s not over yet! #TeamMrPopper
