Hey Stephanie, I have a question. I did the titles last year (2010) and was planning to do it by author last name this year. Is that okay or does it need to be title?

Me (aka Danielle) said...

I'm new here..but you have got my attention. 26 books..however..That's quite the challenge. I think I'm up to it. Do we have to read them in alphabetical order?

Lexie said...

How do I get the code for the linky?

Alexa said...

Are we only allowed to read teen books for this challenge?

Alexa said...

Thanks for answering my question :)

Alexa said...

Sorry for yet another comment but the code for the button for this challenge has your blog button's picture when I tried to post it onto my blog instead of the challenge picture. Just thought I would let you know.

Me (aka Danielle) said...

I'm linked up. My list isn't complete, but I'm working on it!

Lady Reader said...

My list will be under the 'Amys Goods' tab on my blog. I will get going on this with a quickness! Thanks. :)

Midnight Bloom said...

Ahhh, sorry! Mister Linky was giving me a difficult time and went twice! If you could delete the first link, that would be nice...

Thanks for hosting such a fun challenge! ^_^

Mandi said...

For my list alot of my book had 'The' as the beginning of the title, so I didn't count the 'the'. Does that make sense? (sorry XD) But i was just wondering if that was okay?

AngelicNytmare said...

This sounds like a fun one. I haven't yet completed my list I think I have 5 I need to fill in, but I will. :)

Alex said...

Done and looking forward to participating!

Alex said...

Oops, it went through twice. :S

christitheteenlibrarian said...

I saw this last week and finally decided I was up for the challenge! Can I use books I've already read in 2011 for this challenge, and can I use books that I'm using for other challenges? Thanks!

Hi!
It really is a great challenge, love it.
I'm sorry that my link is in Swedish though, but I sended you a e-mail as you said on goodreads too. ;)
And that one is in English, haha.
You can translate it with google translate if you want to see what I was writing.

This is my first time participating in a challenge, so thanks for the cool A-Z theme! Now my only problem is having the patience to wait for some of the books I chose since they aren't released yet! Oh the torture.

I'm so sorry if I submit the form twice or even three times.
Something wrong with my internet connection.

Aleksandra said...

I just signed up :) Thanks for hosting!

Penelope Lolohea said...

Is there a linky, or another page where we can post our reviews once we finish reading? Did I completely miss it? I do that sometimes. I can't see who else has joined since there isn't a linky, but I'd love to be able to see what they are reading, and read their reviews. :)
