It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

What? A Book for every letter?

The idea is to read a book for each letter of the month for a year. Once I find where I found it, I'll link but for now I just want to see if I can do this with the books I need for the challenges I have officially joined. I had trouble finding a J title for the A-Z challenge and now I'm going to need THREE of them, and what's with all the U's! And the E's!

My Review books will be a HUGE help but I don't know if I want to find specific letter title to find my other challenges/free reading. For now, this is what my list looks like. I'm pretty sure the challenge started 11-1-09 so I'm listing the ones I need to read next year as well as the ones I'm reading now. I've even finished some!

Thanks to Bitsy at Fabula: A Book Blog, I now know this challenge is the....
