Today I bring you the Book Scavenger Tag. I snagged this from Miguel over at the aptly named The Life & Times of Miguel Olmedo Morell.
The basic premise of the tag is to go looking (one might say even scavenging) for books which match the conditions listed. I love any excuse to stare at my bookshelves and realise just how many (unread) books I own!
Find an author’s name or title with the letter Z in it: The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafón, immediately sprung to mind, didn’t even have to look.
Find a classic: Let’s go with… A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens. Fun fact: I did my undergraduate dissertation on, and I quote, ‘the imaginative legacy of Revolutionary France in literary, cinematic, and musical mediums’ which, obviously, heavily featured this book.
Find a book with a key on it: I have a Vintage Classics edition of Jane Eyre that has a red door and key in the lock on its cover. Symbolism, or something.
Find something on your bookshelf that’s not a book: I have a bunch of figurines and various candles, a couple that are scented like bookshops and the other scented like prosecco. It’s pretty damn good.
