Autumn/Fall Challenge - Read the Season
Sept 23 (First day of Autumn) - Dec 20, 2010

For this challenge, you will need to read a book whose author (first or last name) starts with a letter in the word autumn, or whose book title starts with that letter. ("A", "An", and "The" don't count).

Bonus: The word "Autumn" or "Fall" in the title.

Good luck and remember, no reading until Sept 23rd for this challenge although you may post your lists early.

Martha, the title must start with a U, or the authors first or last name starts with a U. Your titles have a U in them, but it isn't the first word.

They don't have to all be cozies, although it's encouraged. However, we all read other books as well and sometimes for difficult letters, it's easier to look for something else.

❂ Murder by Death  (murderbydeath) I'm in, though I still have to sort out which books I'll read. In a twist, I have my U's sorted! Lol. I have a series written by Julie Kaewert sitting in my TBR pile that all start with U: Unprintable, Unsolicited, Unsigned, etc. They're about a small publishing company in London. This will be the motivation I need to get through some of them, as I keep putting them off - newer books keep grabbing my attention, I guess :)
