Complete Thread

My granddaughter BabyPooh usually runs this one, but she is in the process of moving and asked me to sponsor it this year.

Try to find a book without the letter A in the title.
Find an author's name without an "A".
For even more, find a book without the letter A in the title and author

Examples of books that will work:
Stone Cold [by David Baldacci]
The Inner Circle [by Brad Meitzer]
Snow Flower [by Lisa See]

Examples of authors that will work:
Joel Rosenberg
Ken Follett

The challenge starts June 1, 2020 and ends June 30, 2020
If you have any questions contact me

Have fun!!!!!!!

 

Thanks for Hosting💖...my memory is kaPUT...I remembered it as Allergic to "E".🤣

 

In November there is the E-less release challenge

 

Being mostly at home (laid off thanks to the virus) makes life weird.

I'll see what I can come up with.

Guess what?
I just got a journal entry from the first year of this challenge!

Maybe The Bookshop took The Bus: https://moovitapp.com/---/public_transit-line-C-Honolulu_HI-1144-10747-240101-0

 

I must have missed the initial announcement for this year's challenge so haven't been actively saving books. But I've just perused my pile of available books and have found some that fit the criteria.

 

Release whatever you have
