Alphabet Soup Reading Challenge

The Alphabet Soup Reading Challenge is hosted at Escape with Dollycas.

The challenge runs from January 1st to December 31st.

It's all about reading! Each book counts as a spoonful. The goal is to read 26 books from A to Z and to keep track of your progress along the way.

That's right! It's an alphabet challenge. The challenge is to read one book with a title starting with every letter of the alphabet. You can drop the A's and The's from the titles and books can carry-over/crossover from other challenges.

Books can be read in any order and in any format (audio is acceptable).

2019 is my sixth year participating. I haven't yet quite made the full 26. In 2014, I closed with a final score of 21 out of 26. 2015 led to a completion number of 15 out of 26. 2016 resulted in only 11 out of the 26. There was a slight rebound in 2017 with 14, which I consider pretty decent based on the fact that I finished less than 30 books the entire year. (So embarrassing.) In 2018 I made an okay showing with 17 out of 26. Not as high as I wanted, but an improvement over the prior year. Let's hope I continue that improvement trend. Come on twenty something!

I'll be keeping track of my progress here, updating each letter with title, author, and Goodreads link as I go.

Let's see if I can (finally) make it from A to Z!
