I Spy Book Challenge

I love a good challenge and, when I saw this one on Secret Library Book Blog written by fellow Jersey resident Nicki, and I knew I had to give this a go. After all I had those I-Spy books as a child and was always desperate to find the illusive items so hopefully I’ll do better here.

 

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

  1. Not sure I could do this in 5 minutes as most of my books are now e-books. Good for you though and I’ve read several of the ones you listed.
