A - Z Book Challenge

Now here's a meme that's right up my alley:

(Grabbed from elite)

*Fill in each letter of the alphabet with a title of a book that you've read that begins with that letter (i.e. American Psycho for the letter A).

*Articles (a, an, the) don't count in alphabetizing, so skip to the first letter of the next word (i.e. A Thousand Splendid Suns would count for the letter T, The Great Gatsby would count for the letter G, and so on).

*Titles that start with or are entirely comprised of numbers, will be alphabetized by how they would be spelled when written out in English (i.e. 1984 would count for the letter N for Nineteen Eighty-Four).

*The letter X space will be special. The title will only have to include the letter X to count (i.e. Don Quixote). This isn't necessarily as easy as it sounds.

A: "Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl"
B: "The Bonesetter's Daughter"
C: "Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister"
D: "Dragonology: The Complete Book of Dragons"
E: "The Eight"
F: "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them"
G: "Gone With the Wind"
H: "The Haunted Mountain" by Mollie Hunter
I: "The Island of the Blue Dolphins"
J: "James and the Giant Peach"
K: "Katherine" by Anya Seton
L: "The Life of Pi"
M: "The Master and Margarita"
N: "Number the Stars"
O: "Once" by James Herbert
P: "The Poisonwood Bible"
Q: "Quidditch Through the Ages"
R: "Rabbits Rabbits Everywhere: A Fibonacci Tale"
S: "The Shy Stegosaurus of Cricket Creek" by Evelyn Sibley Lampman
T: "Tyrannosaurus Sue" by Steve Fiffer
U: "The Uffizi: The Official Guide"
V: "The Velveteen Rabbit"
W: "Wonderful Wizard of Oz"
X: "Mac OS X Tiger for Dummies"
Z: "Zagazoo" by Quentin Blake

Ah well, 25 out of 26 ain't bad. :D Maybe I should see if I've got a "Y" book around here and read it tonight?
