Author Alphabet Reading Challenge hosted by Nothing But Reading Challenges.
Goal: Going from A - Z, and using authors’ first or
last names, read the alphabet. For "X" and "Z" you may use authors with
those hard to find letters in their names. Unless, of course, you're a
Yes, you may use an author twice, once with their first name, and again with their last.
Duration: You set the pace.
My goal was to finish this challenge in one year. My finish date was 17th of August 2014 and I achieved my goal as I read the last book for this challenge the 11th of August 2014. This wasn't an easy challenge as I am a purist and only wanted names that started with all the letters.
