My Alphabet reading challenge - introduction

Last year I read 26 books which had titles beginning with each of the letters of the alphabet in order. I very much enjoyed doing this and it certainly adds some variety to the normal reading diet. Having still got one book starting with X on my shelves I thought I might do this again if I could find the other 25. Actually, it wasn’t as hard as you might think and the list is made up of books I had on my to-be-read list, which were on my shelves and I had wanted to read for some time, or were bought specially for the occasion from my wish list.

I see that my fellow blogger Sara is doing the same thing – it will be interesting to see if any of our choices are the same but I am not going to list mine now …. You can wait and see …….

The books I will be reading are certainly an interesting and varied collection of books most of which are fiction and the majority of which I shall read in print form. I shall blog about each one as I read it and try and pinpoint what exactly it is about the book that I enjoy or not as the case may be. I shall also try and review the collection as I go along as an interesting exercise in reading a variety of books.

The first book I shall read is “American Wife” by Curtis Sittenfeld. It is a novel about a woman who becomes the wife of the American President. It is quite a chunky book and an interesting one with which to start.
