Nothing but Reading Challenges - Spell it Out - Animal Alphabet Reading Challenge

Spell it Out - Animal Alphabet Reading Challenge hosted by  Nothing but Reading Challenges on Goodreads..

Inspired by Denea who wanted to read a Meerkat instead of a Rabbit in the 'What Animal Are You? Reading Challenge'. This is a Spell It Out challenge. Pick an animal for each letter of the alphabet and read books with titles, character (first or last name), or authors (first or last name) that begin with letters tha correspond to letter of the animal you choose. As always, if a title starts with a, an, the, etc you may use the second word of the title. Let me know if we should add any animals.

The duration of this challenge is 1 year (or should I make it 2 years). Have fun.

I have chosen to do this challenge over 2 years start date tomorrow 8th of January 2014 to finish 7th of January 2016.
