Image and video hosting by TinyPic

This is the standard A to Z author challenge with a little twist.

The challenge is to read a book from your TBR by an author for each letter of the alphabet. The twist - the author AND the book you choose must have been on your TBR prior to 04/01/18. You may use your Goodreads TBR or a personal TBR...it doesn't matter.

For those hard letters - Q, X, Y and Z - you may use any title containing the letter.

This one year challenge begins April 1, 2018 and ends March 31, 2019.

Let me get a new one set up right quick, Tammie.

I really should have set up a new one for 2019 at the beginning of April, but I've been so busy I missed it.

I'll set up a new one now though, so that we have an active one. Give me just a minute to get it set up.
