Happy Monday, everyone! I hope you all had a fabulous and productive weekend! Personally, I was able to plow through a few of the posts and books I owed you guys (yay) and this was first on my list!
I found this creative tag on Kristin’s page @KristinKravesBooks and couldn’t help myself; I simply had to participate. Not only was this a fun way for me to explore my own bookshelves, but it’s also an inventive way to see what fellow bloggers have in their home libraries.
Similar to the “How I Choose My Books” tag — all finds must be from your very own stock. No naming books you don’t actually own. I’m pretty sure that’s the only rule. Are we all clear on the rules? Great, let’s go!
1) Find an author name or title with a Z in it.
The Zookeeper’s Wife by Diane Ackerman
2) Find a classic.
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
3) Find a book with a key on it.
The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly
4) Find something on your bookshelf that is not a book.
Ha! Take your pick from the Harry Potter shrine.

6) Find a book with a girl on it.
