Holding up books for no reason.

Send me a photo of you holding up a book you like (cover forward) and I'll post it here.
( )

You are more than welcome to hold up books you've written.

The more books you hold up at once, the higher up the list I'll place you.


1) Books all face forward
2) Only one person holding
3) No photo shop
4) No solid supports (shelves, metal frame etc)

Competition closed - prizes awarded - entries still welcome.
Remember, quality counts as much as quantity. Want to show off your new book? Go for it.

("Little Girl" Jones wins a copy of Stone Goblins that I bought twice by mistake)
(Benjamin wins a fantasy book - for quantity - I'll send him a list of options!)
(Vivianne wins a Thorns mug - for pioneering the leg method and a great photo)

Benjamin (21! Who knew how deep the rabbit hole went?)

Jonathan (19 - some minus for overlap but kudos on the mouth hold!)

Elizabeth (18! The relaxed method - all the Fushigi Yugi volumes + artbook)

Vivianne (16, but so well displayed!)

Laura (again) (17 apparently - I can only recognise Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, but given that my sources (Laura) tell me Laura is five foot nothing it's a fine effort! Ideally though we should see most of each book!)

  1. Love the picture with the FY mangas, but I would have thought that a couch would definitely have counted as a "solid support". Would have made more sense for you to have said that everyone had to stand up.
