Challenge: A to Z Reading

Yes, I'm signing up for another challenge! This one looks like a lot of fun. You can read about the full rules on Becky's blog (click here), but I'll summarize the options I'm going for.

Option C: The commitment is to read 52 books. A to Z titles and A to Z authors. So, for example, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austin could count for a P title or an A author. I'm going to separate my titles and authors, meaning that, for this example, P&P would count toward only a title or an author (not both).

I am not going to post a list of the 52 books I'm committing to. Instead, as I go through my normal reading and as I meet other challenges, I'm going see what books will help fill in the alphabet. In addition, as I read book reviews and look over the books at the library and bookstore, I'll be thinking about the alphabet. I don't plan on reading the alphabet in order (and I didn't see that as a rule).

Oh, and there is a companion Yahoo! group for this challenge set up by Patti and Sally. I plan to post reviews here and post my progress on Becky's blog as well as at the Yahoo! group.

I am working on this challenge too. I am going to be doing the nations one! I will be looking forward to your reviews!

Yep, I'm in this one too. Yet, I'm only doing titles - I don't know if I can get through Authors too - yikes.

This has nothing to do with the challenge. I wanted to stop in and wish you along with your family a Merry Christmas! :)

I've followed your lead in several challenges but this is one I will happily watch you do by yourself. It will be fun to see how you fill in some of the tricky letters. Good luck.

Actually, before signing up I looked through my other challenges and my TBR stack. I had all titles but the X, which I now have. I had all authors but 3, which I found before committing! All books here overlap the other challenges, so I think I'll be ok.

Michelle: I really wanted to do the nations one. I read a lot of fantasy, so I thought I could handle it. But you just can't do everything. Maybe next year.

There are so many interesting challenges being posted. I've got to sit down and figure out which I'm joining (before Wednesday!).

Good luck with those you've joined :)
