Ugly Book Covers: Vote for the Ugliest!
Over the winter we hosted a scavenger hunt challenge. One item on the list was to read a book with an ugly cover. Participants were competing against each other to find (and read) the book with the ugliest book cover. Now we need your help to pick the winner!
We got some truly horrific entries. Check them out then scroll down for the poll to vote on the one you think is the ugliest! The winner will be announced on June 15th. Note: Only entries that were read prior to the deadline were included in the voting. Some participants entered books but did not complete them in time.
The winner will receive their choice of print from Litographs (24X36). Litographs prints are posters with images composed of the text of a book. They offer a large range of books to choose from.
Here are the nominees:
2. The Princess Bride
3. Purity by Jonathan Franzen
4. Unseen Academicals by Terry Pratchett
5. Seven for a Secret by Elizabeth Bear
7. The Real Charlotte by Somerville and Ross
8. Astonishing Stories
9. A Personal Matter
10. Man’s Fate by Malraux
11. Aztec by Gary Jennings
UPDATE: Congrats to JoLene for winning this prize! The voting was really close and she won by one vote!
