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.

Monthly Mix-up Mania Reading Challenge

Idea from Jen at Jen's Book Talk Monthly Mixer Mele but she isn't hosting it this year and I had a great time trying to finish the challenge so.......

Welcome to the
What: To read a book for each letter in the year. That's right, a title for the J in January and the A in January, etc.... 74 books total!

Start date: April 1, 2011, because we're fools to try this

End date: March 31, 2013, yes, two years, because well, we have other challenges to do ;)

  • only one letter per book
  • books can be moved around if it fits better somewhere else after you've read it
  • the letter doesn't have to be the first word, just the first letter of a word in the title (a, an, and, the do not count-except for something like "And Then You Die")
  • reviews aren't necessary but a quick "I read for letter... it was about... I did/not like it" comment would be nice.
  • if you decide to join in, create a post on your blog telling others then come back and link up (to the actual post, not just your blog's home page)
  • a blog is not necessary, just comment on that month's post at the Lair
  • if you get stuck, an author's name will do in a pinch but try to have more titles than names
  • the most important thing is to have fun!

    3-12-11: WAIT! this challenge now has it's own blog! Check it out

    I tried Jen's challenge last year, but didn't complete it. I think it's cool though and I'm glad you made it two years! Here's my sign up post:

    I didn't see a linky so I hope it was okay to sign up here in the comments. Thanks for hosting!
