Welcome Jodi, hope all is well up in Indiana. Enjoy reading through the alphabet, I just started this challenge today, i am a bit late for a book of the month, so in april i will choose a letter and we will read a book that starts with it. It will kind of help us through the alphabet lol. Books will be voted on.

Fiona (boadicea) | 2 comments Hi! I'm Fiona too, in Seattle. I am making this my year to read. This is a fun challenge. Thanks for getting it started!
I tend to enjoy books about WW2 or Medieval England, at least for the moment, but I'm open to anything.
I'm looking forward to seeing what you are all reading.
I'll post my list when I get a chance.

Noel Arndt Caryl | 83 comments Hello All! I am a friend of Fiona's and live in a small town outside of Seattle. I read all different genres of books and love finding new and interesting books that I wouldn't have chosen myself.
Reading is a passion of mine and always have a book handy just in case.
I have already posted my list and would love some suggestions for the letters I don't have completed.
Have an amazing day!!

message 25: by Brittany (new)

Brittany Thanks for inviting me to join! I am from Texas and this group sounds like fun. I have been working on a few challenges through another group and one is an A-Z challenge, but I read a lot, so will probably try to do new books that are not on the other list (for the most part) for this list! We'll see how that goes.

Welcome Brittany, hope you enjoy reading through the alphabet and the books of the month. I have each letter individually because members were not able to edit there lists. So each letter has a listing and its also a way to see what others have read with that letter. in case you are searching for a book starting with a particular letter . Have a great evening and Happy Reading :)

We have a monthly single book read and the monthly series read that you can join in. Any conversion jump in if you have something to say and welcome to the group. Where are you from? I am in Missouri and right at the moment an empty nester but preparing to have my child come home from the army and he will be staying with me for a little while LOL.

Hey Janine i didn't know you had a son in the army. Praying for his safety and thank him for his faithful service.. When is he coming Home? I bet you can't wait.


message 48: by Kim (last edited Aug 21, 2014 06:39AM) (new)

Kim Hampton | 213 comments My name is Kim. I live in Arkansas. I'm a stay at home mom with two daughters, ages 8 and 2. I read a lot, especially while waiting to pick my oldest up from school. Not sure I can complete this challenge or not, but I'm going to give it my best shot!


message 49: by [deleted user] (new)

Hi Kim welcome and so glad to see you making yourself at home :D. You know this challenge is really against yourself so try and do what you can and enjoy the rest of the group.

Linda, yeah my baby has been in the Army for the last three and a half years. (Hint you young parents, don't even in humor, tell your kids that once they are 18 and graduated then they are out the door. I told that to my Alex all the time joking with him, and he took me serious for he left for BCT ten days later.) I have been very blessed that my son, though he came within weeks of a deployment, has never been deployed. When he is going to be home frankly is going to depend on the Army's timeline of wait, wait, wait, ok get ready, wait, wait, pack your stuff, wait, wait, wait, there is more paperwork, wait, wait, wait, ok unpack, wait, okay now go. So it is a waiting game though it should be somewhere between mid Sept until Christmas time. I downsized when he moved to his base into a one bedroom apartment so I now have to make room for him and his stuff, until he gets on his feet and moves out again. I love my child, I really do and would do anything for him, but I love my peace and quiet too that I have gotten use to. Does that make sense LOL.


message 50: by June (new)

June Kim, welcome. I'm getting from your lists that you are a Debbie Macomber fan (at least a little!). :) Personally I've only gotten around to reading a couple of her books which I really enjoyed. When Cedar Cove came on the Hallmark Channel my hubby thought it looked like something I'd enjoy so every week he gets me to sit with him and watch. I have most of the books that go with it, but I haven't read any of them yet. Do you watch the show and do you think they are doing a good job on it?
