The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized
by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal.
It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, January 4th
and runs through Sunday, January 10th in whatever time zone you are in.
Bout of Books is low-pressure.
There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional.
For all Bout of Books 15 information and updates,
be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog.

THE CHALLENGE FOR DAY 3 IS
The Rainbow Challenge
For the cover challenge, collect books from your bookshelf (physical or virtual) and make yourself a rainbow using the covers. A rainbow is ROYGBIV (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet). Then take a photo or arrange images of those books into a rainbow, and either post to twitter (@bookybecksa & #boutofbooks), post to your own blog and leave me a link in the comments below or simply comment below with your response!
= from my TBR or already read
For the author challenge, use authors surnames to complete an acrostic poem style rainbow of ROYGBIV – you can only use surnames and no prefixes (eg. Vincent van Gogh could be used for a G, not a V). Any ‘writer’ is acceptable, for example, playwrights, poets and comic book/graphic novel authors).
Here is my rainbow, from rather recent reviews:
R – M.J. Rose, The Witch of Painted Sorrows (2015)je veux
O – Yoko Ogawa, The Housekeeper and The Professor (2009)
G – C. W. Gortner, Mademoiselle Chanel (2015)
B – Tomas Bannerhed, The Ravens (2014)
I – Hamid Ismailov [Ismailov], The Dead Lake (2014)
V -Timur Vermes, Look Who’s Back (2015)
SHOW ME YOUR RAINBOW!
