How to play (from quillsandzebras):
The goal is to read 24 indie longer-length pieces of fiction in a year, according to the following guidelines:
- Each story must be written by a different author, and the first letters of the authors’ surnames must make up the entire alphabet (ie, one author whose surname begins with A, one with B, one with C….)
- You do not need to read in alphabetical order.
- Re-reads, ebooks, ongoing serials — any long-length fiction counts. For serials, you must read the entire backlog.
What doesn’t count: individual short stories.
- Anyone can join. You don’t need a blog to participate.
- No need to list your stories in advance. You may select as you go. Even if you list them now, you can change the list if needed.
- Crossovers from other reading challenges count.
- Challenge begins January 1st through December, 2011. Webfiction started before the 1st do not count.
- Sign up by leaving a comment below with the direct link to your post where your progress will be listed. Include the URL to this post so that other readers can find this fun challenge.
- You don’t need to review your books, although it’s strongly encouraged.
