Alphabetically Inclined

UPDATE: 2020. OK, I still haven't read a book starting with X or Z. So I'm going to start tracking again, on the theory that tracking something makes it more likely to happen.

***


So, as I was idly sorting my TBR bookshelf, I checked to see if I had a book for each letter of the alphabet, title-wise. And surprise, I nearly did! (I have no unread books starting with the letter Z). Clearly I should join an A-Z challenge to inspire me to read some of these. I picked the 2014 Alphabet Soup Reading Challenge  because I liked Dollycas's soup picture.

I'll start out only using books from my shelves, but I'll have no qualms about pulling in library books if I need them. 

UPDATE: Well, it's 2015 and I didn't finish. I also didn't use any of my library reads. Instead, I'm going to continue on with the count, but mark the books from my shelves that I read in 2015 in purple. So eventually I hope to finish, and in the meantime it will be a record of what I read that I own. And now 2016 will be in maroon. 2017, BLUE. 2018. 2020 black but bold, 2021 this color.
