A-Z Locations - 2014 hosted by Crazy Challenge Connection on Goodreads.
I finished the last book the 17th of this month. I started out really fast but then got stuck on the usual letters but after looking through other peoples books I finally found my X location.
A–Z LOCATIONS 2014
Timeframe: 11/1/14 to 10/31/15
Once again we’re challenging you to read at least one book set in a location that begins with each letter of the alphabet.
can use the name of a place in the book – Hogwarts, for example -- the
name of the city or the name of the country in which most of the book is
set, or even a generic place like a farm or zoo. For those fantasy and
sci-fi books, you can use the name of the planet or world – for example,
if you read Star Wars: A New Hope, you can use Tatooine for T.
you have trouble finding locations beginning with Q, U, X, Y and Z, you
may use a location in which the letter appears – for example:
Punxsutawney for X. 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 a location beginning
with the appropriate letter! You may only use each book once!
❖ If you want to participate in a challenge, sign up by posting at least a partial list of the challenge requirements. This gives us a post to link you to, which you can use to update your books as the challenge progresses.
❖ Books must be at least 150 pages long (unless otherwise noted) and may only be used for one task in this challenge
❖ For each book you read, please post the location first,
in addition to a link to the title and mention the author and the date
you finished reading it. If you don’t, you won’t get credit for
completing that task.
❖ 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.
❖ Rereads are allowed, as long as you read the entire book and not just skim the best portions!
