This Challenge was fairly popular for 2013. Read 26 books for the year, each with a different letter of the alphabet.

Books must be started and finished in 2014.

Aprilleigh (aprilleighlauer) | 553 comments I'm having to bow out on this one. The cross-country move from the ninth circle of Hell has made it impossible to keep track of what I'm reading, or to find the time to even read for the most part. I've neglected to update even when I have read something. I'll definitely do this next year, however. The chances of being transferred cross-country and taking 6 months to find a suitable house couldn't possibly happen two years in a row, could it?

X is a tuff one. Last year Kathy saved me in late December with the recommendation of Xingu (quite entertaining). This year I've got my X read ready to go. It's Xenocide, which is the third book in the Ender's Game Series. It's Q I'm still hunting.

message 23: by Connie (last edited Feb 06, 2014 04:41PM) (new)

Connie Cote I thought Q would be tough but I read Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking by Susan Cain after my daughter recommended it. I am now reading another one with a Q. It is 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami so I could have had 2. I haven't picked one for X yet.

I'm glad I can still sign up for this. I'm debating about the scavenger hunt one ,too ..Are you guys doing that one ?

Aprilleigh (aprilleighlauer) | 553 comments Another good X title is The Xibalba Murders - I've already read it for this year's challenge and enjoyed it enough to add the rest of that series to my reading list. It's a murder mystery with an archaeological twist and I found it a light, easy read. I believe it's the first in the series (for those like me who hate to start in the middle of a series LOL).

It really does! Hunting for a title with one of those hard to get letters makes you read books you might never have otherwise. I had fun with it last year, for sure :).

Scavenger Hunt! We have two women about to win! Need more hunters, with more items to add to the list of the things to collect. Consider joining ;-).

Hey, MK.. apologies for a late reply. I seemed to have missed the notification.

I haven't really got to a Y or a X as yet, so still trespassing the easy territories.. but I can understand what you are saying and I hope I can complete the whole challenge without such hurdles on the way. :)

.. and thank you so much from getting 'Scavenger Hunt' to my attention.. it seems mighty interesting. I would definitely want to join in. Though, I am slightly confused if Round I is finished or not as I seem to see a winner already declared and Round II being put up. (Guess I can join Round II) Kindly correct me if I am mistaken (though I will read through the rules in detail)

Also we can take the discussion onto that thread, if this post of mine is spamming this one. :)

Appreciate your work and your ideas.. kudos and sincere thanks ! :)

Hi Apoorv! "Round One" is definitely still open! Only one person has completed it. Just closed to adding new items. I tentatively opened a second round, hoping to build a second list, so those who have finished and love hunting can still participate.

So, feel free to jump in and start collecting items on the round one list. Add new items to round two list.

I probably should have congratulated Connie on finishing, rather than winning, as it seems to connote the end of collecting. I guess I got swept away by Olympic jargon (she finished her list the same weekend the Winter Olympics ended ;-).)

I need to think of better wording there, obviously. :-))


PS - I'll copy this into the Scavenger Hunt thread too ...

I downloaded this book while looking for free classics on my Kindle. I came across this book and figured I would use it for my letter "Y". I had no idea how long the story was till I started reading (about 2 hours reading). It is an extremely well written story about a young woman's mental slide from reality. I still recommend it even if not used for this challenge.

Just putting this link here so I can remember some X choices:

Only 9 letters remaining and of course, one of them is X! And I read Xingu last year, so I probably need to choose a different title for this year.


message 45: by MK (new)

MK (wisny) | 2993 comments X is tricky! The for posting link, Kathy :). I've also been downloading samples of titles with 'x' whenever I happen to come across one, surfing Amazon. Hopefully, by the end of the year I'll come across one that grabs my interest!
