A-Z 2012 Book Challenge



Rules are simple, read a book that starts with each letter of the alphabet.  You can list them out ahead of time, or "the lazy way" as it was put by Lindsey lol.    I'm going to pick the lazy way, cause I have no idea what I will read!  There will also be monthly challenges, so that sounds like a lot of fun!

Technical Stuff (as written by Babies, Books, and Signs)
This challenge will run from January 1st, 2012 until December 31st, 2012.
You can join anytime.
If you are blogger, leave the link to your actual post about this challenge on Babies, Books, and Signs (link above).
If you are not a blogger, leave a link on the hosting page to where you will be keeping track of this challenge.

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

A - Make a list now of 26 books, picking one for each letter of the alphabet. For example: A - Atonement B- Black Beauty C - The Count of Monte Cristo D - Dances with Dragons etc.

OR

B - The lazy way (how I 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. Hope that by the end of the year you have read one book for each letter. Towards the end of the year, you can check and see which letters you are missing and find books to fit.

Each month, I will add another challenge to this main challenge. It might to read a book with both A and Z in the title or to read a book with 3 words that all start with the same letter. I might host a few random giveaways too for good measure. If you've got some idea for the mini-challenges, send them my way!

So to join along....
1. Write a blog post about this challenge and whether you are going go with A or B.
2. Add the button to your blog.
3. Attach yourself to the linky (on host page).
4. Follow Babies, Books and Signs blog so that you can see when the monthly challenge posts!

  1. Lindsey here from Babies, Books, and Signs. Thank you so much for joining! I was wondering if you'd like to co-host. We could collaborate on the monthly challenges, and then switch off on hosting them. Me in January, you in February, etc. Let me know what you think. You can e-mail me at LindseyAylward@yahoo.com Thanks again for joining!
