This is the first book I saw with “Z” on its title.
Find a classic
A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Much Ado About Nothing and The Merchant of Venice all by William Shakespeare
I picked these books because… Shakespeare.
Find a book with a key on it
This is a hard one. I didn’t find any. I’ve spent like 20 minutes looking for it, but nah.
Find something on your bookshelf that’s not a book

Find the oldest book on your shelf
Animal Lore of Shakespeare’s Time by E. Phipson
Not really sure if this one means oldest book I own or oldest published book. But I picked the oldest published book. It says that this edition was printed in 1883. So old!

Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom
I love this book!
Find a book with illustrations in it
Fushigi Yuugi Genbu Kaiden Vol. 8 by Yuu Watase
