Catamorandi (wwwgoodreadscomprofilerandi) Hey Lori,

I think that is a great idea. You get to find out other great authors that you didn't necessarily know before. It also allows you to read books you never heard of before. Great Idea!!!

Lori (tnbbc) Cant take credit for this as my idea. Someone in this group posted the suggestion that we give it a shot. My only downfall here is that I read an enormous amount of books, and so i tend to read authors with the same last inital alot.

But as the year draws to an end, i will desperately try to fill it up, and thats where the new authors and books will start coming into play. Reading outside your usual genre and stuff....

Lori (tnbbc) For this Sub-Challenge...I will list all the books that I read alphabetically by author until I fill in each letter... This sort of coincides with the books I complete as part of my original challenge. I am starting by using the first book I have read since ringing in the new year..
