What the heck is that? I know you are asking that yourself, right now.
Well, it's pretty simple, actually. The 'A - Z' book challenge is a meme created by Lindsey at Babies, Books and Signs and basically challenges you to read the alphabet. That doesn't sound too bad, does it?
*This challenge will run from January 1st, 2012 until December 31st, 2012.
*You can join anytime.
*If you are blogger, leave the link to your actual post about this challenge (If you are not a blogger, leave a link to where you will be keeping track of this challenge)There are two different ways you can set up your own A-Z challenge.
1 - Make a list now of 26 books, picking one for each letter of the alphabet. For example:
A - Atonement
B - Black Beauty
C - The Count of Monte Cristo D - Dances with Dragons etc.
2 - The lazy way (how I 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. Read one book per letter of the alphabet and you are set.
Since it is really hard to find titles beginning with X, the letter X just needs to be in the title somewhere.How to join:
1. Write a blog post about the challenge and whether you're going with 1 or 2.
2. Add the button to your blog.
3. Attach yourself to the linky.
4. Follow my blog so that you can see when I post the monthly challenge!
So, here I am... choosing the lazy way, obviously. Follow along or better yet, join! Let's see if we can make it happen!
