2013 A-Zed Challenge VI

I have now completed this challenge two years in a row out of the 5 years I have been playing this. This will be my 6th year.  I'm not in any official group for this one as you can see I play both authors and titles.  I also do not pre-select books but let them fall where they may during the year.  Once it gets close to the end of the year, *if* I am close to finishing, then I will actively search out books to fill in missing letters.

UPDATE June 3:  Halfway through the year and I`ve done very well.  Getting close to being done.  A few of the tough ones done, but still some toughies to go, especially the dreaded X & Z`s but I do have 1 Q already.  I`m putting a quick look list for my own benefit at the top here:

UPDATE: Nov 25:  Well I had given up hope of finishing this year but today I filled in 2 more missing letters, finishing Titles, which only leaves me with authors Q, X, Z.  I'll make a quick trip to the library and see if I can finish them off with picture books!

UPDATE Dec: Did not finish.  Only two authors left though.  I will not be continuing this challenge next year.  I lost the fun of it this year.

Still need:
Authors:  X,Z
