The Bookshelf Above

I went out of my way to make these books as anonymous as I could. Some, of course, will still be quite recognizable, since there aren't so many books to choose from with an image on the spine. But I defy you to name them all! Mwah-ha-ha-ha!

I believe number 5 is MTA's Lederhosen book.

Because the art no matter how small it appears here is still very recognizable.

I hope I am right. :)

5. is the Clue of the Linoleum Lederhosen, indeed. ;)

4. is not The Book Thief, but another Thief.
7. is not Abhorsen, but another in the series.

Whoops! What I meant to say:

4. The Thief Lord

Is #6 The Light Princess?

BuffySquirrel said...

Yeah, that's the Disreputable Dog!

Lirael is correct.
How did you guess the Light Princess?!

mb said...

Because of the "ess" and the "Mac."

Is it right?

James Klousia said...

I think I see Blood Meridian by McCarthy (fifth from the right)...

Editorial Anonymous said...

Yes, Light Princess.

No, Blood Meridian.

mb said...

#9 is Opie and Wells, Wee Willie Winkie (My Very First Mother Goose).

11. Stellaluna?

mb said...

I think the third from the right (I lost count from the left) is Ella Enchanted. I was thrown off because that's not the edition I own.

Editorial Anonymous said...

Not Ella Enchanted.
Sorry

BuffySquirrel said...

EA is just loving this! lol

This was a long time ago, but I didn't see it!

Most seem already gotten but:

2 - Lion the Witch

Next to Lireal - Good Masters Sweet Ladies

Blue one towards the end - So Sleepy Story

Last one - Follow the Line Through The House

TELL ME IF I AM RIGHT! :)
