Some of Bev's Favorite Quotes...

Attention All Challengers! here on the Block has been, shall we say, challenging since I got back from vacation. I cam back to work to no computer (not hooked up after our office move) and my laptop at home has gone on strike. It looks like the Check-in Posts for the Just the Facts & Mount TBR challenges will wind up happening at the end of July instead of the regularly scheduled mid-point. But they are coming. Stay tuned!

I had a ton of fun with it last year--and even made it through the entire alphabet. It was pretty difficult for me to find an "X" author that I thought I might enjoy, so I don't know if I'll make it all the way through again or not. We'll see.

But for now I officially signed up for letters A-M and just finished my last necessary book (Letter J) today.  I'm still reading--we'll see if I finish off the alphabet again. In the meantime, here are the books read for my challenge:

A: A Sprig of Sea Lavender by J. R. L. Anderson (3/31/12)
B: Dekok & Murder on the Menu by A. C. Baantjer (7/13/12)
C: The Problem of the Green Capsule by John Dickson Carr (1/7/12)
D: Nothing Can Rescue Me by Elizabeth Daly (2/18/12)
E: Five Passengers from Lisbon by Mignon G Eberhart (3/11/12)
F: The Fleet Street Murders by Charles Finch 9/1/12)
G: A Slip of the Tong by Charles Goodrum (6/3/12)
H: The Doctor Dines in Prague by Robin Hathaway (3/12/12)
I: A Good Death by Elizabeth Ironside (3/28/12)

Congratulations. I am doing an A-Z challenge for titles and am having difficulty with that. I am impressed that you can read so much, and blog so well and frequently. I haven't found time for challenge completion posts and am falling behind on all my goals for the blog. Oh well.
