How This Challenge Works

How much involvement you the participant has with the group is your decision. I'll have a post for each letter of the alphabet. "A" Titles, "A" Authors, "A" Countries. You may post links to your reviews in the comment section of each (relevant) post.

For authors:

Author name, book title, participant name, link.

Example: Austen, Jane. Persuasion. Becky's Book Reviews.

Sign Up Here!


General reminder of what you're signing up for:

Option A: Read authors A to Z. Commit to reading 26 books theoretically speaking.

Option B: Read titles A to Z. Commit to reading 26 books theoretically speaking.

Option C: Read both authors A to Z and titles A to Z (52 books; this is the challenge Joy created)

Option D: Read internationally A to Z (books representing 26 different countries) (The books could be from international authors (writers from that country); however, it's fine if a book is only set in that country. If need be, instead of countries one could use cities, states, regions, etc. The idea is to use proper place names. If you'd like you could even use a few fictional countries.)

Option E: Read 26 Alphabet books. Embrace your inner child and go visit the children's section!

Mention in your comment which option(s) you'll be committing to. Sign ups begin December 1, 2008. (The challenge does NOT start until January 1, 2009, but early sign ups are definitely encouraged!) The challenge closes to new participants on June 30, 2009.

The full rules can be read here.
