Leslie | 15985 comments 1) Post the title of a book that you have read , beginning with the next letter of the alphabet after the initial letter of the previous post. Include the date you finished reading the book if known.

2) Articles "a", "an" and "the" and their other language counterparts should be ignored.

3) X, Y, and/or Z may be skipped, but please wait at least a few hours in case someone else has a title with one of those letters.

4) Try not to repeat the same title within a single thread. Please use the Goodread links for titles and authors when possible.

EXAMPLE: for a book starting with U:

An Unmarried Lady by Anna Willman (read March 2013)

Note that this counts as a "U" title because the article ("An") is ignored.
