It's the Bookshelf Scavenger Hunt, where there's a list of books one has to find.
Thanks for tagging everyone, The Nocturnal Fey!
The problem then was I was too busy, but now that I have free time (sort of), I plunged into it!
|I'm this giddy right now.|
Find an author's name or title with the letter Z in it
|The Dapitan Correspondence of Dr. Jose Rizal and Dr. Ferdinand Blumentritt compiled by Romeo G. Jalosjos|
I love Rizal and his love for the country so much. This book is a gem for me.
Find a classic
|Brave New World by Aldous Huxley|
It says so in the cover. :D This is one of the books which opened my mind about the real world.
Find a book with a key on it
|Murder at the Abba by Isaac Asimov|
My one and only book with a key. I haven;t read this one, though.
Find something on your bookshelf that's not a book
|50 yen, stress ball, two bean bags|
I just went to Japan for some days, and these are the 'souvenirs' that I brought. It happened that I have no other place to put these on, so they're on my shelf.
Find the oldest book on your shelf
|The New Lexicon Webster's Encyclopedic Dictionary of the English Language, and Gulliver's Travels and Other Writing by Jonathan Swift|
My first book, thus oldest book I own is the former. The latter's the oldest published book (1726, first edition).
Find a book with a girl on the cover
|Animorphs #48 The Return by K.A. Applegate|
This one's easy because I have Animorphs collection. Picked Rachel because I love how her character grew. One of the best characters that I've read, ever.
Find a book that has an animal in it
|Pyramids by Terry Pratchett, and Animal Farm by George Orwell|
Forgive me for not picking one, but I've got to show you these two lovelies. I love the book art of the former; I love the theme of the latter. Please read these two books.
Find a book with a male protagonist
|Smaller and smaller circles by F. H. BatacanMany of my friends nudged me into reading this, and when I did, I knew why.|
Find a book with only words on it
|How to win friends and influence people by Dale Carnegie|
This helped me cope up with the world.
Find a book with illustrations in it
|Instructions by Neil Gaiman|
Given to me by my boyfriend after graduation, this book is wonderfully illustrated by Charles Vess. Don't miss this book if you're a Gaiman fan, too.
Find a book with gold lettering
|Wilderness Tips by Margaret Atwood|
I bought this without a jacket, let's just assume the lettering in the jacket is gold, too. This is my first (and only aotm) Atwood, and I enjoyed every story in this book.
Find a diary (true or fictional)
|The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank|
This inspired me to bits. After reading this, I needed my diary to look as intellectual as hers.
Find a book written with a common name (like Smith)
|Kung Baga sa Bigas by Jose F. Lacaba|
Just like Marie for girls, Jose is one of the common names for boys in the Philippines. (I have three Joses in this list.)
Find a book that has a closeup of something on it
|Amazing Maurice and his Educated Rodents by Terry Pratchett|
My first Pratchett book (that I've finished)! Been looking forward to read him again ever since.
Find a book on your shelf that takes place in the earliest time period
|The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas|
Set in 16th century. I must reread this.
Find a hardcover book without a jacket
|The Prophet by Khalil Gibran|
Given to me by my boyfriend without a jacket. He memorized most of the passages of the book so he gave it to me. One of his favorites. Became one of mine, too.Find a book with stars on it
|The Joy of a Peanuts Christmas by Charles M. Schulz|
There's this need in me to have books that can be read by children. This is one of those.
Find a teal/turquoise colored book
|Viajero by F. Sionil Jose|
Lots of information from this book.
Find a non-YA book
|New Poems in Pilipino edited by Federico Licsi Espino Jr. |
I have many non-YA books, but this one is such a gem (a Marcos-era project), so I picked it.
Gods, I enjoyed it so much that I'm tagging everyone who reads this, to spread the fun!
