The Color Coded Challenge 2017

Bev at My Reader's Block was considering retiring the Color Coded Challenge, so she took a poll to see if there was still enough interest in the challenge. There was, so it will be on for 2017. Sign up at the link above.

 


The Color Coded Challenge 
Once again the categories will be more open--the color may either be named in the title or it may appear as the dominant color for the cover of the book. For "implies color" the image implying color should dominate the cover--for instance a large rainbow, a field of flowers, or the image of a painter.  Get ready for a rainbow of reading in 2017. 
Once I have a chance to look over my TBR list I'll see if I'm able to do the colors this year. It's getting harder and harder to do that from my own stacks. Once again there will not be a prize offered for this particular challenge this year. 

Here are the rules:




* Any book read from January 1 through December 31, 2017 will count.




*Crossovers with other challenges are fine.


*Please post about the challenge on your blog. Sign ups accepted until Nov 1, 2017.
