Almost two months ago I posted about a reading challenge that I found on the group I follow on good reads.
This challenge is simple: read 26 books throughout the year, one beginning with each letter of the alphabet. Ignore any articles at the beginning of the title (The..., A..., etc.). For the letters X and Z, you may choose a title with those letters anywhere within the title.

I mixed it up a little and added all of the title's that I plan on reading up to this point. I am also planning on going to the used book store tonight to look for some more books to fill in the letters I do not have yet. Title's in black print are books I've already read, blue I am reading and green I have waiting to be read either in paperback or on my Nook.
I still have a long way to go.. Good thing I'm going to be off for 6-8 weeks with my wrist surgery and can get caught up on my reading!
