I Spy Book Challenge

I rarely take part in blog memes or tags but when I saw this one it looked like so much fun!
Cleo from Cleopatra Loves Books and Nicki from The Secret Library did a great job with it, so I thought I’d join in. It took me 25 minutes to find them all.

If you want to join in yourself, here are the rules:

Find a book on your bookshelves that contains (either on the cover or in the title) an example for each of twenty categories.

You must have a separate book for all 20, get as creative as you want and do it within five minutes!!  (or longer if you have way too many books on way too many overcrowded shelves!)

I tried to make all of my choices books that I recommend.

Well that’s it!  Fun for me, and hopefully added something to YOUR TBR! LOL

One of the reasons I did this tag was that I didn’t have to single people out by tagging them.  But, that being said, if you want to do this too – consider yourself tagged!

    This is a great meme. I could not do it in 5 minutes, more like half an hour. I am definitely going to do this one.
