Use the name of a book you have read about between January 01, 2012 - December 31, 2012. The title must correspond to a certain letter.

You can use books you read for other challenges. So total books to be read is 26.

Earlier this year it was suggested that for the A-Z challenges, you get to make one letter optional or just leave it out (whichever one you can't complete). Should we go with that for 2012?

At the moment I am reading a book that has been translated from English to Dutch. Which title do I use for this challenge? The original English one or the one that it has in the Dutch translation? I have used Dutch titles before but only if that was the original language in which the book was written and if of course I had read the book in Dutch. But now the book is translated and I am not sure what the rules are.

That would be the title in the language you are actually reading it in.

Cool, that means I can at least use one of the books. It is a trilogy and the original English titles won't work because I have those letters already covered, but in Dutch I know I can use one.

Thanks!


Barbara | 4354 comments Mod
And that is 4! All A-Z challenges completed with the X in all 4 of them.


Lauren Smith | 6402 comments Mod
Well done Barbara, that is quite a feat!


Lu (Sugar & Snark) | 9772 comments Mod
Yea very nice!


Barbara | 4354 comments Mod
Thanks!


Liezel (liezkl) | 563 comments congrats, that is impressive :)


Barbara | 4354 comments Mod
Thanks!
I had to read some crappy books to finish all 4, but I did and I always like getting these 4 done. For some reason I don't feel like I have completed anything unless I do them all. :)
