The Bookshelf Scavenger Hunt

I saw this over at https://gapyeargoddess.wordpress.com/2015/01/18/the-bookshelf-scavenger-hunt/ and like the narcissistic, book collecting, show off I am, thought I would do it as well. So lets begin.

  • Find an author’s name or title with a Z in it

Had to copy the previous person with this one, it’s a wonderful journey to read this book. I have the entire series and it’s well worth reading them all!

  • Find a classic

A bit of Sense and Sensibility, Jane Austen has written a lot of good novels which we now consider classics. I am an avid collector of classics, this is just the first one I had to hand.

  • Find a book with a key it.

  • Find something on your bookshelf that isn’t a book.

The Collected Works of Shakespeare. I received this from my mum, and it has served me well so far it is from 1895, that’s pretty old.
