I saw this on Cleopatra Loves Books blog and immediately wanted to do it too – after all I love lists as well as books. It’s not as easy as I hoped!
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!)
Links, where they exist, are to my posts on the books.
