Barb | 673 comments I did it to myself -- I chose several genres that are usually lumped together anyhow (mystery/thriller/suspense), THEN I decided to use only books from those genres to complete the challenge. I'm reading lots of those genres, but they don't have the right letters in their titles or author names! It'll be a long while before I finish LOL

Amelia (Narknon) | 71 comments LOL! Then I guess you need all that extra luck to find books that will fill in the rest of it!

I thought about doing that, Barb, but decided I should keep it open. I know how I can get into reading ruts or frenzies.

I'm trying to clear out some of these challenges, so I filled in the blanks with books from other genres and I'm calling this one done!
