This week’s topic from Addlepates and Bookworms is
the book with the least amount of pages.
To make this a much more interesting post, I am not going to include books I bought for classes, compilations, and dictionaries. Most of those books are too dull for merit recognition in a meme.
My shortest book is Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by J.K. Rowling with 63 pages.
“A copy of Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them resides in almost every wizarding household in the country. Now Muggles too have the chance to discover where the Quintaped lives, what the Puffskein eats and why it is best not to leave milk out for a Knarl.” –Goodreads
It’s fitting that the longest book I own is related to the shortest book I own. “Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them” is a fun, interesting read. It allows those who play wizards to carry around a Hogwarts textbook, I’m not going to hide it, that’s what I used to do. I’m excited that J.K. Rowling is going to make a movie out of these magical creatures to pull her devoted fans back into the wizarding world.
Which of your books is the shortest?
To participate in the Exploring Your Bookshelf meme hosted by Addlepates and Bookworms, here’s what you do:
- Post a picture of your bookshelf (preferably literal, but e-shelves work too).
- I’ll give you something about your shelf to write about. It might be your favourite cover, your favourite author, your book you most recently bought etc.
- Then give us the blurb and the cover of the book (and what you thought of it if you’ve read it)
- And finally, come back to my post and send us a link! I promise to check out all of your posts!
