In this challenge, the goal is to read books by 26 different authors through the year, where the name of the authors (first name, middle name or last name) starts on each letter in the alphabet (A to Z). One author, one letter; so you can count each author only once, by the first letter in the first name OR middle name OR last name.
NOTE: The letters "Q" and "X" can be anywhere in the author's name.
If you have any special letters in your alphabet (i.e. Æ, Ø and Å here in Norway), you might count these as well. Or if you read books in a non-latin script, like Thai, Cyrillic, Arabic, you can list these letters as well.
And when you've finished a book, make a post here, telling about the book. Please tell the title, name of author, bookcrossing link if applicable, what the book is about and what you think of it.
You can count the same book in this challenge and the "Titles A-Z" reading challenge - http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/548374 - or other reading challenges if you want to.
You may include an alpabetical list of the authors you've read for this challenge in your posts as well.

Maybe this will bring us out of our reading comfort zones?
