a to z reading challenge

I read about a reading challenge for 2011 here.  It's too late to participate actively on her blog, but I really like the idea of this, and thought it would be a great motivator anyway!

Here's the deal:  Make a list of 26 books you want to read in for each letter of the alphabet (not including "the" or "a/an").  Cross them off as you go!

Since I'm starting off a bit late, I'm going to include the books I've already read this year.

A - The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein
B - Baking Cakes in Kigali by Gaile Parkin
C - Creepy Cute Crochet by Christen Haden
D - Dead Reckoning by Charlaine Harris
E - Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert
F - Five Quarters of the Orange by Joanne Harris
G - The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest by Stieg Larsson
H -The Hangman's Daughter by Oliver Potzch
I - I Love Patchwork by Rashida Coleman-Hale
J - The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan
K - Keeping Faith by Jodi Picoult
L - Last Night in Twisted River by John Irving
M - The Memory Keeper's Daughter by Kim Edwards
N - A Natural History of Love by Diane Ackerman
