Unlocking the Secret Room in the Library – Puzzle

Upon inspecting all five books, go down to the start of the library and you will see a bookshelf with five switches. Each switch has an identical portrait on it respective to the book and each one represents a certain time of the day.

Playing Video Games is the very first hobby that I partake in and it became my favorite hobby. Played Unreal Tournament 2004 as my first game which made me a fan of FPS Games. Story and Adventure Games are still my Cup of Tea to go with as they give more detailing to the described worlds and characters. I love to help out my fellow gamers across all over the world by making my publications.
