The HoHoHo RAT is underway! I hope you’re enjoying all the holiday books you’ve picked out for the read-a-thon. And if you haven’t signed up yet, what are you waiting for?
Since I like looking at holiday-themed book covers almost as much as I like reading them, I decided to challenge the HoHoHoRAT participants to a puzzle-solving contest. Specifically, jigsaw puzzles! Don’t worry, I didn’t make them very hard. Puzzles #1 through #9 are the covers of holiday books published in 2016. There are several genres and at least three holidays represented. Puzzle #10 is a classic Christmas book.
To play, just rearrange the pieces of each puzzle by clicking and dragging. Once you’ve solved the puzzle, answer a question about the cover in the widget at the bottom of this post.
The prize: Your choice of book from Book Depository, up to $10 US.
Rules and Restrictions (Sorry; you know there have to be a few.)
- You have to be signed up for the HoHoHoRAT. (You can sign up even if you don’t have a blog.)
- You have to be at least 18 years old.
- You have to live somewhere that Book Depository will ship to, or I can’t send you your prize. (Here’s the list of countries they ship to.)
- The winner will be randomly selected from all the correct answers. The more questions you answer correctly, the more chances you have to win.

The last puzzle is a little trickier, because some of the pieces have been rotated. You’ll have to rotate them as well as move them into position. (ETA: To rotate a piece, click on it and use the arrow keys.)
