This fun feature is a mini workshop. We look at book covers just from their thumbnail pictures at online selling book sites and make quick fire buying decisions. We look from a READERS Point of View and this exercise is very EYE OPENING.

Join in and see where it leads.

Grab a coffee and spend 5 Minutes on this exercise.

Here’s the challenge
