Weekly Geeks #14 and 15 - More Photos 'n' Books


This week's challenge:
Take close-up photos of book covers and see if our readers can guess which books they are.
Since WG has been gone for a few weeks and I've missed the last few, I'm combining this week's with last week's offering:
When I mentioned that I was moving, someone asked if I would be showing a book photo tour of my new place. That gave me the idea to ask Weekly Geeks to post book photo tours of their own.

And since I've posted lots of photos of my bookshelves, I thought I'd post photos of my favorite reading spots instead. These are all in my little cottage/studio:

The couch, for reading which usually leads to napping here.

My reading chair.

This is my meditation loft, where I do some morning reading.

My new writing spot

Now, for the book covers. I love this game, What Am I - I've done this with some other close up photos of plants and food. My only hint: these are all in my library. Can you spot them? (Edited to add the titles that have been correctly identified.)

1. Wicked

2. Oscar and Lucinda (no one got this)

3. The Thirteenth Tale

4. The Master and Margarita

5. Tipping the Velvet

6. The Quincunx (no one got this)

For the Weekly Geek #15 (book covers):

#1 and #3 are "Wicked" by Gregory Maguire and "The Thirteenth Tale" by Diane Setterfield.

Numbers #2 and #5 look SO FAMILIAR, but I can't place them, and it's really annoying me, hahaha.

I don't recognize #4 and #6.

Look at that meditation loft! I need that! =)

Terri said...

Jill - yeah you do!

marienko -- you got 1 and 3 right!

Number 3 is The thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield. Unfortunately I don't recognize the others.

I knew the first one was WiCKED. but that's about it. But I love the close-up photos. Fantastic.

I think #5 is Tipping The Velvet (cannot remember the author though)
Can't wait to find out #6 - it is a wonderful photo.

Dewey said...

Ha ha, I only know the ones everyone else already mentioned. But I love your writing spot! So green.

Terri said...

Book zombie, you're right, Tipping the Velvet. I had it sitting on a table with the sun shining on it through a blue glass, hence the tint!

Very nice reading loft! I am envious :D
#4 has been on my wishlist forever, it's The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov.

Terri said...

Correctomundo, icedream.
