Oh I love these

I astound myself at my inability to find any

Thanks Elegran, I loved this last year.

Elegran Thu 12-Nov-20 12:34:36

Score so far - zero.

Bathsheba Thu 12-Nov-20 12:38:12

Ooh thanks Elegran, I love doing these! And gosh, didn't it come round quickly? Can't believe it's a year since the last one 😲

I've got two... Its not easy!

Pittcity Thu 12-Nov-20 15:30:13

Sir Precious Jewellers is an easy one to start with.
The telescope is part of Sunday evening viewing at present.

It's definitely not easy Pittcity, I'm really struggling.

Elegran Fri 13-Nov-20 18:44:45

Five. I think this year's is particularly difficult - but I think that every year. Once you do get one it is usually blindingly obvious.

One ! Girl woman other.

Lucca Fri 13-Nov-20 18:56:38

Lord of the rings ?

Elegran Fri 13-Nov-20 19:00:43

Lucca Don't post the answers! Just how many you have got right.

Juno56 Fri 13-Nov-20 19:17:34

Eight, but I seem to have ground to a halt now😕. I think they are harder this year.

Elegran Fri 13-Nov-20 19:31:47

I am leaving it for now. Tomorrow my brain may be fresher.

Lucca Fri 13-Nov-20 19:35:55

Oops sorry. I’ll shut up now.

Pittcity Fri 13-Nov-20 19:42:42

I need to use the Amazon book lists as I've no idea of a lot of these.

Juno56 Sat 14-Nov-20 10:26:10

I thought of another one last night so I am up to nine but nothing else is coming to mind. I foresee many unproductive hours this weekend😟.

Mumsnet usually has a thread on this every year, with lots of clues. Might go and check it out....

Elegran Sun 15-Nov-20 14:59:56

I don't look at clues until I have been beating my head against the brick wall for a week or so. I don't like that that feeling of "OH no! I should have got that!"

Pittcity Sun 15-Nov-20 17:12:22

Ive got a few more with lateral thinking but I think some contain references to the content of the book, so you need to be well read or good at Google.

Maggiemaybe Sun 15-Nov-20 17:33:35

Oh, I love this! I found about it for the first time on here two years ago, entered and won a £10 book token. Putting my thinking cap on now....

Having wasted spent hours and hours on this I am almost there. I know we are not giving answers on this thread but wondered if someone who has already got the Bennett Supplies one could tell me if I would be on the right track if I looked at Alan Bennett or Arnold Bennett titles?

Bathsheba Tue 17-Nov-20 13:05:07

Juno56 no I'm afraid not. It's a different Bennett altogether, opposite sex.

Juno56 Tue 17-Nov-20 13:55:56

Thank you Bathsheba that is very helpful👍. Off to Google female Bennett authors🙂

cavewoman Tue 17-Nov-20 15:08:58

Do we know how many hidden books are there?
