cover images ingrained

August 17, 2010

here’s a cool cover quiz for the book nerds among us.  24 covers in 6 minutes.  it took me 1:47 to correctly guess 23 of the 24.  i won’t tell you which one stumped me for fear of giving you an answer (if you know anything about my reading taste, the one that drew a blank shouldn’t be a surprise).

this could be a fun exercise to duplicate in a classroom or at a program, but maybe that’s because i am obsessed with covers.
