2014 A-Z title reading challenge

The same group I did the A-Z character reading challenge on over on Goodreads also has one for book titles.

The challenge goal is to read books with titles for each of the letters of the alphabet. Books starting with "the" or "a" can either be used for the letters t or a, or the words "the" and "a" can be ignored so that the next word in the title can be used. For example, to use a couple of my own books, "A Magical Storm" can be used for either the letter a or the letter m, and "The Pineapple Loving Dragon" can be used for either the letter t or the letter p.

Like with the character one, the challenge only needs to be completed by December 31st 2014, but I finished it not long ago.

Like I said with the quarterly reading challenge I posted yesterday, you may recognize some of the titles from other reading challenges. A couple are ones that weren't used for other challenges though.

It must make you feel so cool- having your own books in the list!

Any book that's published is in the list of possible options to read for this challenge. I just used my own as examples to show how the challenge works. It does feel pretty good to know that I have books that could potentially be counted for challenges like this though, and to know that one day someone could pick one of my books for a challenge that will possibly have them in a list among best seling authors.

That's a lot of reading once again--wow! I bet you enjoy these challenges. :)

Yeah, I enjoy doing the challenges. Since I read so much finding books to fit challenges is fun for me; much more challenging than the ones where you just have to read a certain number of books by a certain date, and because of that more fun to me. I do enjoy seeing how much I can beat the numbers by, but I enjoy the challenges where books have to be themed or have spacific words or letters in the titles more because they're more of a challenge for me, and I like a good challenge!
