Dawn (eternalalien71) | 14 comments I just crossed 'G' off my list - The Grub-And-Stakers Quilt a Bee -

That makes 8 down and 18 to go :)


message 10: by Dawn (new)

Dawn (eternalalien71) | 14 comments I've just added my 'W' title and crossed off my 13th book. So half way through now :)

I'm finding that I've been reading plenty of mystery/crime books, but they seem to mostly begin with the same letters!
I've started to make a concerted effort to find ones with letters I haven't read yet.
So hopefully will be adding more soon.

Hi Aditya. Looking at your titles so far I'm not sure if it would quite be your taste, but for 'Q' I'm going to be reading The Question of Max by Amanda Cross.
It's an amateur sleuth mystery, with a more 'cozy' feel to it than you might be used to.
Or you could try Q is for Quarry by Sue Grafton.

I'm still trying to find an X and Q book. Have a Z one in mind.

Barbara | 153 comments As usual, I have Goodreads/This Group newbie questions. First, it seems that it doesn't matter whether you go by author or book title, correct? Also, you put the books you've read onto the A to Z shelf once you've completed them?

I think you can do either book title or author (or two challenges - one for each). Not sure about the A to Z shelf bit.
