Before I explain, I must give credit where it’s due. For the month of April, I participated in an A to Z Challenge on my other blog. I found that meme by reading blogs I typically follow, and it pointed me to Tossing It Out. This challenge is actually hosted by many blogs, but Tossing It Out was my go-to blog for all things A to Z Challenge. As I did my posts, at one point I was kinda stuck, and decided to highlight some of my favorite authors. Then I thought, I shoulda done that for the whole challenge! At that point, it was too late, but I briefly thought about doing that here. But, I didn’t want to do the challenge on both blogs simultaneously (one at a time is enough). Once that challenge came to an end, I decided that I definitely wanted to do an A to Z author challenge. The next question was when.
As I mentioned at the beginning of this year, I’m taking every few months off from scheduled reviews to give myself some time to do more leisurely reading. The next month I have that planned for is June, another 30-day month. The A to Z Challenge entailed posting every day, except Sundays, to make it through the alphabet. And June will work perfectly – (mostly) empty calendar (book-wise) and the perfect number of posting days!
Anyway, I present to you my Author’s from A to Z challenge.
I am so, so excited about this! So, here’s the info.
How it works
It starts on June 1. Basically, just share your favorite authors in alphabetical order (by last name). (For examples, see my posts for N, O, and Q.) One letter in one post each day, going through the alphabet. (Remember to skip Sundays.)
What’s the point?
Mostly to have fun. Also, to use this as an opportunity to acquaint others with some of my favorite authors.
Wanna play along?
I sure hope so! I want to find new authors, too!
