I've decided to do a seperate thread for our progress, because on the other thread they are getting burried at the bottom. Please use the other thread http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/6415833/ for questions and comments and this one just for your list. Please move your list to this thread and continue to add to it here. Please us this thread only for your list. Everything else should be done on the other post. Thanx

Here's a recap of the rules:

1. Read or listen to a book by an author who is new to you for each letter of the alphabet (go by authors last name only, not first)

2. Post the letter, name & link for the book ex:
K-Kellerman http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/7234858

3. Release the book. Both wild & controlled releases count, since sometimes if it's a good book I like to give it to a friend to read. Also the release can be used with other challenges along with this one.

4. Ad released to your post ex:
K-Kellerman http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/7234858 RELEASED

5. Please make one post and edit it as you go (see my post for example) I think it will be esier for me to keep track of you that way.

6. No time limit, so take as long as you need.

7. Once you have finished please pm or e-mail( Luv2Read97416@aol.com) me your address so I can send you a lil' something for completing the challenge

8. I'll add extra credit for any books sent to others in this challenge that you also used for this challenge. This would be especially helpful with those hard to find letters like X. For this extra credit I will send you a lil' something extra along with the lil' something I send when you complete the challenge. Just *star* the RELEASED part of the entry so I know it was extra credit. ex:
K-Kellerman http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/7234858 *RELEASED*

9. Have Fun!!

I'll try to find also writers who have lastnames that start with the last three letters in Finnish alfabet.

Those in the list are some books that I'm planing to read. I mark the letter with * when I have read the book, and with (wild release) or (controlled release) when I have made the release.

I would love to read it and be happy to pass it on if others in the challenge want to read it to ;o) X is one of the letters I've been worrying about.

I'm in for this one, as I need to get through my Mount TBR.
Profile Image

Bump

Just a bump
Profile Image
and welcome to all the new participants!!

without internet access at home I don't get to check in much, but I'm still around and paying attention to all the progress everyone has made!!
Profile Image
Was without a computer for several days so I managed to finish off a couple of books and both of them happened to be authors I hadn't read before. I'm waiting for wishlists to be more functional again and then decide whether to wild release or control release the books I've read.
Profile Image
Have read 13 new authors. Great challenge so far, have found some new authors that I really like.
Profile Image
Over halfway done now.
Profile Image
Wondered if the X book might be AVL now? Also wondering if anyone wants a copy of The Pigman by Paul Zindel for the Z author as I have it AVL.
Profile Image
I have finished reading all the books necessary for this release challenge. I have 3 left to release and those three are going out in a book box tomorrow. In other words, as soon as this book box goes to the post office I will have completed this challenge!!
Profile Image
I AM FINISHED!!!



WoooooHoooo!!! Way to go! You are the first to finish. I'll get your prizes in the mail soon
Profile Image
That is nice! I'll be looking forward to that. But the real prize was reading books I might not otherwise have read.
Profile Image
If so I'd like to join. I have alot of books on my TBR by "new-to-me" authors it will give me some encouragement to pick those up rather than old favourites!
Profile Image
I *think* this is an ongoing challenge. I don't believe there is any sort of time line anyways. I've haven't thought of it that way. I'm not going out of my way to find books to fit the challenge.
Profile Image

Bump

Just a little bump
Profile Image
I'm going to join if that's OK, I did this before and really enjoyed it.

Realized it's been awhile since I had participated in this. Decided just for the challenge to finish, although it appears none of the other participants are active either.

Are you sure you want to delete this item? It cannot be undone.
