This is a year-long reading challenge for 2019. You can use either the author's first or last name for each letter of the alphabet. We have found that some of the letters can be quite difficult so for letters Q, U, X, Y and Z, as long as the letter is in the authors' name somewhere, they will be accepted any time after June 2019. At least 50% of the authors should be from Harlequin or any of our imprints, such as MIRA, HQN, Park Row, Graydon House, Inkyard, Hanover Square, Carina Press, and Worldwide Mystery.

You are on track for completing it this year Annie. You have 9 months to go and only need 9 more. 1 a month will just squeak you to the finish line. :)

I'll leave this thread open for comments until February for those who want to congratulate or add their lists. ~ Kim
