A-Z Title Challenge


For this challenge, you have the entire year to try to complete the alphabet using only book titles. "A", "An", and "The" do not count. So, for example, The Xibalba Murders by Lyn Hamilton would be considered an "X" title. Some letters are a bit more challenging than others, for example, the letter "X" -- in which case you may also read a book with "X" in the title. As always, you may choose to do this challenge using ONLY mysteries or you may slip in a few non-mysteries for more difficult letters.

Good luck and have fun!

Linda (rudylkr) | 7492 comments I do this challenge every year but I've actually only finished once. Fun to see how many letters I get. Also good to use when I'm trying to decide between books for a challenge and one is a new letter. Will post a list later in the year after I've read some books.

I read about 4 per week on average but most are under 250 pages so it isn't too bad. I read for hours after I go to bed and then I also listen to audio books when I drive or when I'm doing other tasks at home. I usually have one regular book and one audio book going at the same time.

Jess (mividadulce) | 101 comments Hi Heather, and anyone who could give me a light,

So, those books from Mrs. Jeffries series or Aunt Dimity series, are they are all starting with 'M' or 'A'? Or can you say the actual title starts after 'Mrs. Jeffres' or 'Aunt Dimity'?

For an example, 'Mrs. Jeffries Plays the Cook', does this start with 'M' or 'P'?

Hi Jess!
I am sorry - I must have been copying, pasting, editing and not paying attention to what I was doing. I am not the moderator. I did not mean to give you an answer because I don't know. Heather could probably answer your question.
Enjoy your reading whatever the answer.

Not at all Brenda, I know our moderator could be busy so was asking to other people's opinion as well. I appreciate your response and hey, you are correct! :)
