I so appreciate that this fun opportunity appeared for me late this afternoon, just as I was considering what to write about this evening. Checking in on Facebook, I discovered I had been tagged by my friend Sara, and invited to participate in a new-to-me challenge.
Called the 7 Day Book Cover Challenge, the rules are simple. For seven days, post a photo of a book cover on Facebook or Instagram, without including an explanation or a review. Then tag a friend to play along.
I love to read, and books have played a crucial role in my life from an early age on. If I want to know how to do something, I read a book. If I want to deepen my knowledge, I find a book to take me on that journey. And if I want to be entertained, or transported to a place I’ve never been, or experience a different time period, culture or realm, I lose myself in the pages of a book.
Books like Eat, Pray Love, the cover photo Sara posted and tagged me on, have shifted my perspective, and my life. I will enjoy mentally and physically sorting through books, and choosing seven that have impacted me.
Beginning tomorrow I will post a book cover photo daily, on both Facebook and Instagram, and tag friends on those social media sites. At the end of the seven days, I’ll share a follow up post and present the seven book covers that I chose.
Thanks Sara, for the invitation and the inspiration. Challenge accepted!
