2016 Alphabet Reading Challenge

Hi everyone!!! :)

I hope you are very well and today I want to share with you another challenge that I saw in Anya's blog this time hosted by Escape with Dollycas Into A Good Book blog (click in the word blog if you want to know more about this challenge)


alphabet 2016

This challenge will run from January 1st, 2016 until December 31st, 2016.

You can join anytime. You do not have to review the book. Books can come from any genre. You do not need to link up each spoonful.

Make a page or a post or a GoodReads shelf where you will keep track of your spoonfuls.

Crossovers to other challenges are allowed and encouraged!

It’s an alphabet challenge!!! The challenge is to read one book that has a title starting with every letter of the alphabet.You can drop the A’s and The’s from the book titles as shown below.The First Main Word Needs To BeThe Letter You Are Counting Except For those pesky Q, X AND Z titles the word that starts with the challenge letter can be anywhere in the title.

So there are two different ways you can set up your own A-Z Reading Challenge.

A – How I plan to do it: Make a list on your blog from A-Z. Throughout the year, as you go along, add the books you are reading to the list. Towards the end of the year, you can check and see which letters you are missing and find books to fit.

OR
B – Make a list now of 26 books, picking one for each letter of the alphabet. For example: A – The Art of Murder by Elaine Viets  B- Breach of Crust by Ellery Adams  C – Copy Cap Murder by Jenn McKinlay   D – Devonshire Scream by Laura Childs etc.
Books can be read in any order and all formats – print – e-book – audio – are acceptable for this challenge!

I have decided to pick it up the A option and as Anya I'm going to keep track how I'm doing it in this post.
