7 Day Book Cover Challenge – Completed

Today I declared the 7 Day Book Cover Challenge completed. This was a fun and easy daily exercise. Take a photo of a favorite book, post it on social media, without comment or a review, and tag a friend to play along. I chose to play on Facebook and Instagram, posting the same book cover photo on each, with different friends tagged.

In this follow up post, I’m listing the books I chose by sharing the photos of the covers. As per the rules, I’m still not going to review the books, although I’ll post briefly why I selected each one.

Day 1 The Lord of the Rings

7 Day Book Cover Challenge - Completed

This hefty volume contains all three of the books in the Lord of the Rings series. Tolkien’s epic Middle Earth stories have¬† impacted my life in huge ways. I found long buried pieces of myself in these tales of heroes’ journeys and redemption.

Day 2 The Untethered Soul

7 Day Book Cover Challenge - Completed

I’ve read Michael Singer’s book, about the spiritual journey, many times. His words freed my heart from old, old energy that kept it bound. This book also inspired my Year of Going Beyond…which became my year of doing new things every day. My blog still carries the word Beyond as part of the title, as a nod to this book. And, I am still going beyond.

Day 3 Life Changing Foods

7 Day Book Cover Challenge - Completed

This book, along with Medical Medium ¬† Liver Rescue and Thyroid Healing, continues to impact my health and well being in very positive ways. Anthony’s books became my roadmap back to a vibrant, pain free, healthy state of being. Thanks to these books, I am enjoying life again.

Day 4 Big Magic

7 Day Book Cover Challenge - Completed

Liz Gilbert’s book gave me permission to fully embrace my creative side and enjoy the resulting magic. What a great privilege, to hear Liz speak in Wichita, Kansas. I purchased this book along with a ticket to her event. I appreciate and benefit from her words.

Day 5 Mr. Pockets

7 Day Book Cover Challenge - Completed

This beautiful tale is a ghost story, a love story and a historical account, woven together. The events span from the Civil War to the early 2000s. I am also extremely proud of the author, who is my cousin. Holding Mr. Pockets in my hands reminds me that dreams do come true, with persistence and perseverance. I am encouraged, by her example, to pursue my own dreams.

Day 6 The Artist’s Way

7 Day Book Cover Challenge - Completed

Liz Gilbert recommended this workbook during her event. That’s all the encouragement I needed to purchase the book. Julia’s writing and life exercises influenced my inner artist and invited her to awaken fully. I enjoyed working through this book, and two others in the series.

Day 7 Love Warrior

7 Day Book Cover Challenge - Completed

This book, along with her previous one, Carry On Warrior, opened up my heart in such tender and amazing ways. Through her life, and her words, Glennon encourages me to live as my authentic self and keep my heart wide open so love can spill out.

The Power of Books

I could easily choose a dozen more impactful and life shifting books! This challenge reminds me of the vital role authors and books play in my life journey and my soul growth. I love the power of books, the power of words.

I so appreciate that this fun opportunity appeared for me late this afternoon, just as I considered what to write about today. Checking in on Facebook, I discovered a tag from my friend Sara, and an invite to participate in a new-to-me challenge.

The 7 Day Book Cover Challenge Rules

Called the 7 Day Book Cover Challenge, the rules are simple.

Every day, 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. At the tender age of five, I learned how to read and the world shifted for me. New places, different time periods, futuristic adventures all invited me in to explore, through the pages of books.

Books continue to be my greatest resource. 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, my imagination fires up as I lose myself in a book.

7 Day Book Cover Challenge

Books like Eat, Pray Love, the cover photo Sara posted and tagged me on, shifted my perspective and my life. The fantasy work of JRR Tolkien radically changed the way I viewed myself, even though Lord of the Rings is not classified as a self help book.

I will enjoy mentally and physically sorting through books, and choosing seven that have impacted me.

At the end of the seven days, I’ll share a follow up post and present the seven book covers that I chose. (Curious which covers I chose? You can read the follow up post: 7 Day Book Cover Challenge Completed)

Thanks Sara, for the invitation and the inspiration. Challenge accepted!7 Day Book Cover Challenge Title Meme 2
