Monthly Mix-Up Mania


There is an entire blog for this one! The challenge of Monthly Mix-Up Mania is to read a book for each letter from each month of year. Counting each letter of all twelve months, that's a total of 74 books.

The official start date is April 1st, 2017. The challenge runs for two years. The end date will be March 31, 2019.

The guidelines are simple (but I've also changed them slightly from the official page):
  • Each book can only be used once.
  • Once assigned to a letter, a book may be moved if it works better somewhere else.
  • "A", "An", and "The" do not count as the first word. All other books may only use the first word in the title.
I'll keep track of my progress simply by filling in the letters as I go. If the books used are reviewed, they'll be hyperlinked to their reviews. I'll also be indicating the finishing date in parentheses after the title & author.

Can't get much easier, right?
