Kasia F-E-B-R-U-A-R-Y

The idea is simple: 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 if you want to.

Challenge Duration: February 1 - February 28, 2010 (Remember, don't start reading before the 1st)

message 44: by Bridgit (last edited Feb 05, 2010 07:26AM) (new)

Bridgit Hi! I am in! This is my first challenge over here. I have two questions though - do all of the books have to be Romances? I love Romance, but have been reading a lot less of it lately as I try to expand my scope. Other question is, do first names count? I see some people have been using the Author's first name, but didnt see where it was ok in the rules?

Thanks!

E - The Elegance of the Hedgehog - Muriel Barbery
B - The Bro Code - Barney Stinson
R - The Red Tent - Anita Diamant
U - The Unbearable Lightness of BeingMilan Kundera

R - The Romanovs - Robert K Massie

Kasia Bridgit wrote: "Do all of the books have to be Romances?"

Not at all, to tell you the truth sometimes I do not even work in one single romance in, but that's just me. I'm contrary like that.

The point is: any genre goes.


message 46: by Kasia (new)

Kasia Bridgit wrote: "Do first names count?"

Yes they do count. I usually go for the last name, but first count too (it's especially helpful with letters like 'Y')


ஐ Briansgirl (Book Queen)ஐ (briansgirlkate) You can also use novella's or short stories, which includes individual stories from anthologies. Helps when either you're running outta time or looking for difficult letters.
