Fran | 11051 comments 2018 A-Z Location Challenge
Duration: January 1, 2018 - December 31, 2018

The Goal:
✩ Read 26 books in which the location names begin with the letters of the alphabet.

The Guidelines:
✩ A location can be as broad or as specific as you want...anything from a country (or I suppose even a planet - especially for Sci-Fi fans) down to a specific building. The one limitation is in order to qualify the name must be capitalized in normal use. For example, "amusement park" would not qualify, but "Disneyland" would.
✩ For the letter "X", any location with the letter "X" in its name is acceptable.
✩ Feel free to join the challenge any time during the year. As long as the books were read in 2018, you can go ahead and backdate.
✩ Have fun! Be sure to check out the lists of other players...it's a great way to find new TBR's!

✩Feel free to update your posts if you like, but please repost when you complete the challenge - it makes tracking so much easier and reduces the chance that your accomplishment will be missed!

Suzanne (esmerelda1) | 2052 comments Romance Readers Reading Challenges
2018 A-Z Location Challenge
Duration:
January 1, 2018 - December 31, 2018

Progress: 22 out of 26

The Goal:
✩ Read 26 books in which the location names begin with the letters of the alphabet.

The Guidelines:
✩ A location can be as broad or as specific as you want...anything from a country (or I suppose even a planet - especially for Sci-Fi fans) down to a specific building. The one limitation is in order to qualify the name must be capitalized in normal use. For example, "amusement park" would not qualify, but "Disneyland" would.
✩ For the letter "X", any location with the letter "X" in its name is acceptable.
✩ Feel free to join the challenge any time during the year. As long as the books were read in 2018, you can go ahead and backdate.
✩ Have fun! Be sure to check out the lists of other players...it's a great way to find new TBR's!
✩Feel free to update your posts if you like, but please repost when you complete the challenge - it makes tracking so much easier and reduces the chance that your accomplishment will be missed!

I managed to find J and Q, now down to Z. "J" was pure luck -- a "Journey's End" series book popped up as a Bookbub deal. It's still a freebie on Amazon. The "Q" I found after my husband suggested searching for Quebec and filtering to Kindle Unlimited.

J - No Ordinary Love
Q - Trapper's Bride

The "J" book was a decent read, but I didn't like the "Q" book, aside from it finishing this letter in the challenge! =) That book was about 75% longer than it needed to be, with a plot that kept adding more and more on as it went.

There are some other Quebec location books in Kindle Unlimited as well: Fireworks in Quebec, Winter Wonderland, and Q Island.


I tried a similar location hunt with the letter Z, and Zanzibar got a couple Kindle Unlimited hits: Love in the Time of Zanzibar and Zanzibar Heat.


Hope this helps out anyone that was stuck on these letters!
