A to Z Challenge

One last reading challenge for the 2011 year. I did this challenge a couple of years ago, when I was book blogging on another blog, and I loved it! The A to Z Challenge introduced me to authors I wouldn't have tried, as I filled up those hard to get letters. I'm excited to try it again.

How does this reading challenge work? Choose the option that works best for you...

Authors -- Read alphabetically by author. Commit to 26 books.
Titles -- Read alphabetically by title. Commit to 26 books.
Authors & Titles -- Commit to reading 52 books

The other time I tried it, I did both authors and titles; though I didn't complete it, I thoroughly enjoyed it and that's the option I am planning for again this year!
