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.
7 Day Book Cover Challenge Completed
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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.
