Reading Challenges

I've decided to participate in two reading challenges this year. I think it will be fun and maybe some of my readers will join in. 

So what Reading Challenges am I going to do this year? I decided to do the Monthly Mix Up Mania. This challenges you 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! The other challenge that sounded like fun is Color Coded Reading Challenge. What quilter wouldn't want to play with color? 



How I list my reads:
Real books (with no notation) 
E-Books (E) 
Audio Books (A) 



Guidelines:
  • 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 (aan, and the do not count)
