Kasia Tricia originally suggested this challenge...

Read Your Name Challenge: you take the letters of the month, and for each letter you find a book which either has an author whose last name starts with this letter or a book which title starts with the given letter. Remember to disregard all the articles: a, an, the...

The duration of challenge is from the beginning of the month to last day, but you can post your list ahead of time ;).


S-E-P-T-E-M-B-E-R is loooooooooooooooooonnnnng and includes 3 'E's, but if you're are up for a challenge, so am I.

Shannon (theholyterror) | 303 comments Oh man, I didn't even finish August! Wait, I was just thinking, I've got a ton of books I have to read for school. Do those count? I was always under the impression that you had to read romance books for these challenges. At least, that's what I've been doing. Do any books count?

Although most of us read a lot of romance books, the challenges are not limited to romance books. So feel free to use whatever book you have that meets the category.
