Only a few more days to go and I don't see me filling in the missing letters at this point so I'm posting my official finishing post (with the right to edit if I do miraculously read a missing letter within the next 3 days).
I don't officially participate in this challenge now. I did the first year but every year since I just like to play along and see how I do without actually trying to get all the letters, (meaning I don't read books just so they will fill in letter on the list), I just fill them in as I go along. This year I did my best ever with a surprise December add of a title beginning with Q!
2008 4 missing authors (Q, U, X, Z) and 3 missing titles (X, Y, Z).
2009 3 missing authors (Q, X, Z) and 2 missing titles (Q, X).
2010 2 missing authors (U, Z) and 1 missing title (X).

A Bookaholic, Pro-life, Pro-Family, Catholic, with Asperger's, who reads as her obsession. These are the ramblings of the books I read or read aloud to my energetic Autistic 12yo.
I love reading almost any book from classics to mysteries to fantasy to manga. I read everything from Christian fiction/non-fiction to dark, paranormal horror novels, go figure. So I'm liable to offend just about everyone with my book choices LOL :-)
I sometimes go through stages of "genre love", I'm addicted to mystery thrillers, Catholic theology, memoirs, 20th century Chinese historical fiction & Victorian fiction and non-fiction, but you'll find I read an even wider variety of books than that, both fiction and non-fiction. I have a teensy fascination with macabre non-fiction books about death and anything about insane asylums.
I also tend to post a lot of reviews of juvenile/teen books, books I read aloud to my son and books he reads aloud to me but I still do a lot of adult reviews as well. I am so addicted to graphic novels and manga that I have a separate BLOG just for those reviews. I read well over 200 books a year, and for the first time ever made it to over 300 last year (2012)! Come join me you never know what new treasure you'll find to read here!
