Kasia A-P-R-I-L

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: April 1 - April 30, 2010 (Remember, don't start reading before the 1st)


message 2: by [deleted user] (new)
