2019 Never Judge a Book By Its Cover Release Challenge, 4th Quarter

Welcome to the challenge!!!

I’m at least the third hostess for this weekly challenge, which has been continuous for many, many years.


Each Saturday (or on occasion on Friday) a book cover is posted as the theme for the coming week. The object is to find books with the themed cover for the week and release them within the week. For instance, the week’s theme might be cover with a pen showing on the cover (modern or quill) or the word pen within the title of the book; or the colors yellow and pink showing on the cover; or authors named Christopher.

Sometimes we will have a “Mystery Namer” – someone other than me who will set up the challenge. Just PM me if you would like to be a “Mystery Namer” and let me know which week you would like to do so.

1) Saturday (in US and Canada) is the overlap day when either the previous week's cover can be released or the new cover can be released. FOR EUROPE, Sunday is the overlap day.

2) Both the front and the back of the book are considered “the cover,” so pictures on the back are acceptable.

3) Any kind of release is OK but only catches from wild releases will count.

4) Each person must keep track of their releases each week which must be posted here with a link to the JE. PLEASE DO NOT go back and edit a previous post and add more releases to it, but make a new post for releases of any given week.

5) If you wild release a book and it gets caught then you have a release counted and a catch counted. However, if the person who caught the book releases it and it gets caught again - that's not another catch for you since you didn't do the second release.

6) When you have a cover which could work for 2 consecutive weeks, then you must to decide which week to count it for as a release (remember that it’s only one book and can only be counted once).

7) Anyone is welcome to join this challenge at any time and you can participate as much as you like. You can begin on Week 1 or Week 31 or Week 51, whichever suits you.



Our cover needs some autumn colors on it - red, orange, brown, or yellow. Some or all of those colors on our cover.

Have a wonderful weekend.

I apologize. I left early on an errand run and got home about 4 hours ago and meant to log on immediately and set your theme. Totally forgot.

Our cover needs someone facing away from or turned away from the reader.

We're having a heatwave. Hope you all will have a wonderful weekend.

Don't forget to turn your clocks back tomorrow night. Enjoy the extra sleep.


Picture showing a stream, river, lake, or ocean.

Hmmm. So far I've found a book with lake in the title but no lake on the cover. The only water I found was a fountain, and one with a kid fishing in a bathtub.

Guess I have to keep looking.

: )

Yikes. I've now found 3 books with lake in the title but no picture of a lake, how odd!

Good thing there was a Christmas fair/book sale going on today. Found some.

Also found a bag a friend had given me which had a few ocean scenes in it. Yay!

Including one with sheep on surfboards (one wearing sandals and a hat) surfing a big wave. Will wonders never cease!


Don't forget to turn your clocks back tomorrow night. Enjoy the extra sleep.

I better should forget it, since we are already running on winter time for a week now ;)

I don't suppose a picture with someone holding a bucket of water...which surely came from a creek or stream nearby...would count, would it Secretariat?😁

Sadly...no extra sleep for me, either. I live in Arizona, where Daylight Saving Time is not observed because after participating for one year when the Uniform Time Act went into effect in 1966, too many people complained, saying we live in the Sonoran Desert and when you lengthen work and school days, you have to use more air conditioning, which uses more energy. Hawaii has never participated, as there is not a large variation in daylight length between winter and summer in their tropical latitude. 😉

Well, except for the Navajo nation - since the area includes parts of multiple states, it makes sense that they would want to keep everything on the same time schedule.

Hawaii has never participated, as there is not a large variation in daylight length between winter and summer in their tropical latitude. 😉

True enough, although it's still noticeable - about two and a half hours difference between the longest & shortest days.

Our not participating is a large part of why I've never quite understood DST - I'm too lazy to figure it out since I don't have to. I just need to keep track of whether we're 5 or 6 hours behind the East Coast, etc. - mostly for work.

It's quite handy that my brother lives in Arizona now, so we know it's always a three-hour time difference. When he was in Seattle we had to pay more attention. ;)

Me too. I hadn't been on line all day and was surprised that she hadn't posted. I hope everything's alright.


Hmm... I'm currently packing my books to release in the next three days... had hoped the theme would be out now.

I'll just pack books with snow on the cover. Until now this year themes have been the same as the respective week in 30 out of 40 non-redo weeks, and both 2018 and 2017 "snow" has been the theme of week 45, so this might be a pretty safe guess :)


Still no posting of Secretariat... hope it's all ok.

About the theme for this week - what would the community think if we just take "snow" as a theme, given that chances are quite high that this should have been the theme for this week anyway? Any objections?


I'm inclined to wait and see: hopefully Sec will report in and she may have something else in mind.

It's pretty much *never* the season for snow here. :p

Well, neither it's the season for snow _here_, not until December, usually.
However, Secretariat used the "snow" theme both in 2017 and 2018 in exactly this week, and repeated almost everything this year in the same weeks... so this is most probably what she would do anyway.

Gonna release one or two snow books today, but I can still switch to another theme later this week.


I think that it is a good idea to come up with a theme since we have not heard from Secretariat. "Snow" would be fine since she has does that before for this week in the previous two years. I think that Secretariat would want us to come up with a theme and continue. So, I think we should go with snow. If we don't hear from her by next Saturday, let's come up with another theme.

I agree, tabby-cat-owner that Secretariat would want someone to choose a theme in her absence, and going with snow would be fine. Hoping all is well with Sec in the meantime. Is anyone in touch with her outside of BC and might be able to try to contact her?

I meant to set the theme Friday evening because I was going to be mostly gone all weekend, beginning early Saturday. I totally forgot and only remembered now that I hadn't done it because I saw the Ballycumber logo in my favorites and my brain clicked in. So sorry to worry everyone. Snow is a great theme, especially given the Arctic Blast that's expected. Good to know you will carry on when I forget.


Good to know that all is well with you. Have a good week.


So sorry to worry everyone.

Not to worry. It's just because we care about you that we get concerned. Glad you're okay.




It would be at least 18 months since I have had a catch recorded, this is really exciting.

Wonderful! So exciting to get a catch, especially after such a long time!


Nice catch! If you delete the pesky ? at the end the link will work.


Thanks, have done, didn't notice it.


Congratulations: it's such a nice feeling... :D
