Weekly Geeks #15 - What Is It?

Weekly Geeks #15 is another super cool idea - Dewey would like every one to play a game called "What Is It?" using book cover close-ups.

I've decided to give my What Is It photos a theme - Canada Reads. Some of you may know about this, but for the ones who don't here is some info:

Canada Reads is a week-long CBC radio show hosted by Jian Ghomeshi. In this annual literary bun-fight, five celebrity panelists are asked to defend their favourite Canadian works of fiction. Day by day, books are voted off the list, until one panelist triumphs with the book for Canada to read this year.

So now that everyone knows what exactly my theme is about, here are the covers I have chosen. One from all seven Canada Reads events.

 Photo Collage1. Rockbound
 Photo Collage2.
 Photo Collage 3.
 Photo Collage4. Complicated Kindness
 Photo Collage 5.
 Photo Collage 6. Next Episode  Photo Collage 7. Lullabies For Little Criminals

Here are some other Weekly Geeks playing What Is It?
