IT'S A PERKS ALPHABET READ-A-THON




As a group let's see what we can read in the month of January and have a Read-A-Thon with a twist!

How this works...


* Each book needs to follow the alphabet from the last one posted

* The Alphabet letter can be based on by genre, author, title, character names, narrator etc.

* As soon as you have a book that you have read in February 2015 that can connect to the last one, post it with the reasons it follows the alphabet and the running tally for you, and for the group for the month, and let's see how many books we can read and connect in the month!



EXAMPLE

Post 1:
Kristie posts:
A
Artemis Fowl (Title)
Artemis Fowl (Artemis Fowl, #1) by Eoin Colfer

Kristie's tally - 1 book
Perks Group tally - 1 book

Post 2:
Karen Posts
B
Midnight Crossroad by Charlaine Harris (character Bobo Winthrop)
Midnight Crossroad (Midnight, Texas, #1) by Charlaine Harris

Karen's tally: 1 book
Perks group tally: 2 books

Post 3:
Kristie posts:
C
City of Bones by Cassandra Clare (title and author)
City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments, #1) by Cassandra Clare

Kirstie's tally: 2 books
Perks group tally: 3 books

.... hopefully you get the idea....


NOTE: You can read any book of any length, children's books and graphic novels also count. Please just remember to check the tally of the book ahead of you and add up the tally as you post

Books need to be marked as "read" between February 1 and February 28, 2015. (It doesn't matter when you started)
