Crazy Challenge Connection - A-Z Authors 2014

A-Z Authors 2014 hosted by Goodreads Crazy Challenge Connection.

DURATION: January 1 - December 31, 2014

Once again this year, we’re challenging you to read at least one book by an author whose LAST name begins with each letter of the alphabet. If you have trouble finding authors whose last names begin with Q, U, X, Y and Z, you may use the author’s first name OR a name in which the letter appears – for example: Brian Jacques could be used for either Q or U. However, we’re asking that you NOT use this option until the last two months of the challenge, or until you have completed all but these letters. Please TRY to find an author beginning with the appropriate letter!


♣ When you sign up for the challenge, please post a challenge template so we have a post to which to link your name; post #2 will list participant links which can then be used for making challenge updates.

For each book you read, please indicate the title, the author and the date you finished reading it. If a challenge task gives several options, please make it clear which option you’ve chosen. If the task calls for an item on the cover, include a link to the book cover.* If it’s not obvious from the book title or cover, be sure to explain how your book fits the task. If you don’t, you won’t get credit for completing that task.

♣ Unless otherwise noted, books must be at least 150 pages long.

♣ Books may only be used for one task in this challenge, but cross-challenge posting is encouraged!

♣ If you want the challenge moderator to check your progress as you make updates, please copy/paste your update into a new message . We don't have time to scroll back through the entire thread looking for "message #15," or to follow links back to an original post.

♣ When you complete the challenge, please post your entire list as a new message to make it easier for everyone to see what you've read. If you don't repost your list, you won't be included in the list of those who have completed the challenge.

I am actually already doing an A-Z Author challenge with Nothing But Reading Challenges but I only have four letters to go so I will do this as well. This is also slightly different than the other challenges as it is only the last name that counts.
