I Spy – Book Challenge

20180516_145002-1

I saw this book challenge on the There’s Something About KM blog and thought I would give it a go as it looked like fun.

If you want to try it yourself, these 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 each category – get as creative as you want and do it within five minutes (or longer if you have too many books on too many overcrowded shelves!).

I took far longer than five minutes because I kept getting distracted by the books I had forgotten I had. I have read all the books listed here and recommend them all.
