[2018] Titles A-Z – reading challenge

A new year is around the corner, and I'm therefore launching the 2018 edition of this reading challenge.

In this challenge, the goal is to read 26 different books through the year, where the titles of the books start with each letter in the alphabet (A to Z). Words like «a» and «the», and eqivalents in other languages (like «ein»/«der» an so on in German) DO count. So «A Captain's Duty» by Richard Phillips would count as A. And "The Book of Lost & Found" by Lucy Foley is to be listed as T.

If you have any special letters in your alphabet (like 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.

As it's the title that is important, not the author, you can read several books by one author.

You can count the same book in this challenge and the "Authors A-Z" reading challenge (http://www.bookcrossing.com/forum/6/548373) or other reading challenges if you want to.

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 may include an alpabetical list of the titles you've read for this challenge in your posts as well.
Like:
A: «A Captain's Duty» by Richard Phillips
B: «Bob No Ordinary Cat» by James Bowen
C: «Chiles døtre» by Carmen Rodríguez

Enjoyed the book more than I thought I would.

I see several players are recording titles starting with the word The as the letter of the second word.
E.g. The Chemist is being counted as C
I thought this was incorrect and was a T for this game?

Yes, titles starting with "The" should be counted as the letter T, *not* the letter of the second word! Same goes for titles starting with "A".
Profile Image
Please observe the rule below! Thanks!
Words like «a» and «the», and eqivalents in other languages (like «ein»/«der» an so on in German) DO count. So «A Captain's Duty» by Richard Phillips would count as A.


The following books are listed under the wrong letter. Should be listed as the letter in the FIRST WORD, which means most of the titles below should be listed as T, as the first word is "The"
