Bout of Books Scavenger Hunt

Stefani of Caught Read Handed hosting a scavenger hunt as part of Bout of Books. Full rules are at her blog, but the gist is to find seven books based on her qualifications. There was quite the hunt for a couple of these, but I’m fond of my choices. My responses are as follows…

1-4: Back row, left to right / 5-7: Front row, left to right

1. Find an author with the same initials as you
At Home In The World by Joyce Maynard

2. Find a book with the color yellow on it
The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion

3. Find an author’s name with the letter “S” in it
Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer

4. Find a book with a female protagonist
Brown Girl Dreaming by Jacqueline Woodson

5. Find the longest book you own
1Q84 by Haruki Murakami (1157 pages)

6. Find a book with a map in it or on it
The Mime Order by Samantha Shannon
Note: This book isn’t published yet and I don’t feel comfortable spoiling anything with a map, but I promise there is a map (perhaps more than one) inside this glorious book.

7. Find a book with a face on it (photograph or illustrated)
The Art of Asking by Amanda Palmer

Bonus: Find something on your shelf that isn’t a book.
Dickens and Dalek get together on the shelves from time to time for a battle of sass and wit.
