A-Z Reading Challenge ~ Updated With Books Read

I'm not into challenges that feel too much like school, so I wanted one that would be just for fun. I created this one to accommodate my somewhat quirky personality. Join me if you're a little quirky, too. (Tweak as needed.)


Any books used to complete this challenge can be used for any other challenges you may be doing, but each book can be used for only one of the categories in this challenge.
