Read the alphabet. It's worth 25 points. You may choose to skip one letter if you find it necessary. This time it may be the first letter from a word from the title (although avoid and, a, the, an...), or the first letter from the authors first or last name.

Books must have been read on or after 7/29/2013.

I'm shocked by how many z books I've already read.
The other ones seem to be scary, boring, or erotica.


message 17: by Darcy (new)

Darcy (sunnytat462) | 2759 comments You could go for Z authors instead.

I thought about that. I can't think of any.

I could just re-read Strike Zone, or Zen and the Art...or Follet's Code to Zero.

Apparently there are a lot of X's in the m-m erotica genre. Outside of that I'm struggling to find something. Apparently authors identify the name Xavier with gay? Odd bias.


message 21: by Heather (new)

Heather T (horrorvacui000) | 5931 comments Mod
I got my z. Somehow I read a rash of Y books before I started the challenge and haven't seen one since. I'm hoping one will magically appear so I don't have to find one. Y's not overly complicated, but I don't feel like going out of my way at the moment.


message 22: by Colleen (new)

Colleen | 172 comments I just read a zombie book to get a "z". It was out side my usual genres. Still not sure how I felt about it. I noticed the same thing about "X" authors, Heather. It does seem an odd quirk


message 23: by Heather (new)

Heather T (horrorvacui000) | 5931 comments Mod
Somehow I was reading a Y book when I wrote about not finding Y's. Apparently my powers of observation were not working for me yesterday. I didn't even notice it.
That puts me at 25 books.
