The rules are really simple, tell us what the reason is behind your username, then count the amount of characters in your username and choose that number book on your bookshelf and tell us what it is/whether you've read it! However as a bonus, see if you can write your username like an acrostics poem, providing a relevant book for every letter of the name! I know it's a lot to ask but I thought it would be fun! Here we go!
The Blogger's Bookshop
Reason behind username:
I have always found comfort in bookshops, something that I’m sure 99% of people in the book community would agree with. So because they had that special place of comfort and safety I knew I had to incorperate it into my blog name somehow. Now what to put it with… well I first started my blog over on Tumblr and that is a place for bloggers to come and lose themselves for hours on end, much like a book lover in a bookshop! Perfect! However, bloggersbookshop didn’t feel right, it just felt like I had thrown two words together (which is essentially true). I thought of abloggersbookshop but I didn’t really feel it, I wanted to make it individual and slightly unique to me. In the end I replaced the ‘a’ with ‘the’ and it soon became thebloggersbookshop that I know and love today!

Bootleg by Alex Shearer
Have I read it?
Yes! This book has a backstory as well! This is one of the earliest books that I remember reading and probably one that got me enjoying them as much as I do (besides Harry Potter of course!) It’s basically about a ban on chocolate and how two boys start to run their own illegal business of making and selling chocolate! It’s pretty much a modern day prohibition of alcohol. This was one of my childhood favourites and unfortunately my copy got thrown away. That was until I managed to find a like new copy in a second hand bookshop I just happened to pass while I was on holiday in the Lake District! I was so happy to find it and I’ve just recently read it again and it was just as good. A definite recommendation! Go and check it out!

Wow that was harder than I originally thought! So many O's to try and think of! Okay so maybe I cheated a bit and removed 'The' from some of the titles! You'll see how difficult it is if you try it yourself!
