2019 Alphabet Soup Reading Challenge - Sign Up

This is always one of my favorite challenges, even though I never seem to complete it. LOL The fun is trying :) It is hosted by Escape With Dollycas.

Here are the details...

This challenge will run from January 1st, 2019 until December 31st, 2019.

You can join anytime. You do not have to post a review of the book. Books can come from any genre.

You do not need to link up each spoonful.

Make a page or a post or a GoodReads shelf where you will keep track of your spoonfuls. I keep track of mine on my Challenge Page.

Crossovers to other challenges are allowed and encouraged!

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.

The First Main Word Needs To Be
The Letter You Are Counting

Except For those pesky Q, X, AND Z titles then the word that starts with the challenge letter can be anywhere in the title.
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 – An Artless Demise (A Lady Darby Mystery) by Anna Lee Huber

B – Bones Behind the Wheel: A Haunted Guesthouse Mystery by E. J. Copperman

C – Chocolate Cream Pie Murder by Joanne Fluke

D- The Diva Sweetens the Pie by Krista Davis, etc..

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