C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 8239 comments We had one of these last year, so let's see if anyone can make it through this time around.

Option One: Read books with titles starting with each letter of the alphabet. (Length, type, ignoring "the" in titles is purely up to each individual.)

Option Two: Read books by authors whose name (first or last, depending on what you decide) starts with each letter of the alphabet.

This is just a fun challenge so no pressure to complete and no rules about lengths, if they can be poetry, manga, graphic novels, all of that is up to you. So however you decide to do it is fine.

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 8239 comments You have to be on the desktop version, but at the bottom right of your comment there should be options that say reply, delete, and edit. Or something along those lines.

Once you click edit it will open back up the comment for you to work in.

Let me know if that helps!
