The Rainbow Book Hunting Challenge




I did the Rainbow Book Hunting Challenge over on Youtube today. It was a lot of fun, and involved making piles of rainbows from the spines of books on my shelves... as many as I could in just two minutes. An excellent way to make a bit of a mess! You can watch the video over here.

The list of books used in this video was too long to include in the video description - Youtube wouldn't let me C&P - but they're all listed in this blog post. :) Happy weekend, folks! x
