Books Fell on Charleston

#1:  Wither by Lauren DeStefano
Where Am I? 

In celebration of Teen Lit Day, Reading Underground dropped awesome books for teens in random places around downtown Charleston.

It was part of the Rock the Drop movement, and it gave us a great excuse to visit some of the interesting, historic and beautiful places around town that we sometimes forget to notice.

Do you recognize the locations where we left these books? Do you want to win a WHOLE BOX of FREE BOOKS (Advance Reading Copies of YA books that will be published later this spring/summer) AND a retro-tastic vintage summer reading t-shirt?!

If so, send an email to or leave a comment below telling us where you think these pictures were taken. First person to correctly identify all the locations wins! If no one gets them all, the prize goes to whoever gets the most right, so why not go ahead and guess?

Contest ends:  May 1, 2011.

The rest of the photos are after the jump...

  1. Thank you so much for supporting Rock the Drop! This images are beautiful - especially those that match the book's settings/contents. Thanks for being so thoughtful. :)

  2. Little Willow: Thanks for stopping by, and for liking our photos! We really had fun with it. We're already making plans to expand next year's drop to go beyond downtown and cover the entire Charleston area.

  3. Lovely pictures; they don't really look out of place. Great giveaway, though it'll be hard for those that don't live around Charleston.

  4. Cool pictures... I'm kind of happy because I know where they all are :D
