Inspired by Denea who wanted to read a Meerkat instead of a Rabbit in the 'What Animal Are You? Reading Challenge'. This is a Spell It Out challenge. Pick an animal for each letter of the alphabet and read books with titles, character (first or last name), or authors (first or last name) that begin with letters tha correspond to letter of the animal you choose. As always, if a title starts with a, an, the, etc you may use the second word of the title. Let me know if we should add any animals.

The duration of this challenge is 1 year (or should I make it 2 years). Have fun.

Example:
A - Heist Society by Ally Carter (author's first name)
P - Pride and Prejudice (title)
E - Elena in Bitten by Kelley Armstrong (character's first name)

Rebecca NJ (njreader) | 1945 comments I really like the spell it out challenges and it's a great way to clear off the bookshelves. Is the intent to read all of animal A and then move on to B? Or are you able to jump around and fit things in where they fit? I think if you would read the shortest name for each letter, you are talking about 102 books so more people might be interested if it was longer than a year. I'm game but I think as an added twist I would like to stick with books I own in order to clean off those shelves in preparation for all my local fall library sales :)


message 3: by Kristina (new)

Kristina (kristinalawhead) | 569 comments Oh good question Rebecca! I was going to start with a B animal but if we are supposed to begin with A I will choose one of those!


message 4: by Amy J. (new)

Amy J. | 685 comments Also, can we work on more than one animal at a time? Or do we need to complete an animal before beginning the next animal?


message 5: by ♔ Shayna (new)

♔ Shayna  | 11 comments Can we add unicorn? Haha


message 6: by Lisarenee (new)

Lisarenee | 7660 comments Rebecca,
You can jump around. You don't have to read them in order.

Amy,
Yes, you can work on more than one animal at a time.

Shayna,
Yes mythological creatures can be added. ;)

message 9: by Denae (new)

Denae (whimsicalmeerkat) I presume that we can use books we use in other challenges but not repeat books within this one, e.g. using the same B book for both bird and rabbit.
