2014 Alphabet Soup Reading Challenge

This is another reading challenge I always participate in and never complete, but I don't really care. This year it's called the 2014 Alphabet Soup Reading Challenge and it's hosted by Lori at Escape With Dollycas

Here are the details...

It’s an alphabet challenge!!! The challenge is to read one book that has a title starting with every letter of the alphabet.

You can drop the A’s and The’s from the book titles as shown below.

So there are two different ways you can set up your own A-Z Reading Challenge.

A - How I plan to do it: Make a list on your blog from A-Z. Throughout the year, as you go along, add the books you are reading to the list. Towards the end of the year, you can check and see which letters you are missing and find books to fit.


B - Make a list now of 26 books, picking one for each letter of the alphabet. For example: A – Assaulted Pretzel by Laura Bradford B- Buried in a Bog by Sheila Connolly C – Cat Trick by Sofie Kelly D – A Deal to Die For by Josie Belle etc.

Books can be read in any order and all formats – print – e-book – audio – are acceptable for this challenge!

I will be listing my books throughout the year here...
