I'm extending this to include no time constraint as my wife and I expecting our first child in November (my reading time will obviously have to be cut down significantly lol). As I will be doing two for each letter (where I can), letters "B", "G", & "K" are already down.

You are free to set your own time constraints here, especially if my track record is anything to go by! :-)

... and before I forget, Congrats on the baby!

Don't know how quickly any more will go up. My wife gave birth to our first son on Thursday (he came 9 weeks early)

Late but... congrats :)

Since the birth of my son I haven't been able to get much reading in. However, I have picked up much where I left off in the terms of this challenge. Mostly children's books (my son is four months old now and I read to him everyday; he already has his favorites) however, I do have some that are not. Currently working on doing a completely new list. Sorry for the delay in posting anything. Added:, Goodnight Moon (Wise Brown), I Love You Stinky Face (McCourt), & The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (Doyle). That completes letters B, D, G, & K.

Adding my very late congrats! As for the reading.... real life takes precedent so great to see you back!

Jan 16, 2012, 10:54pm Top

Thank you so much! It has been a blessing truly.

Feb 15, 2012, 12:19pm Top

Added Uncle Tom's Cabin and Poems of Alexander Pope. Completed letters B, D, G, K, P, S, & W.

Mar 15, 2012, 1:16pm Top

Added Light in August (Faulkner). Now finished F as well.

Apr 16, 2012, 12:31pm Top

Added The Way of the World and The Autobiography of Malcolm X. This is taking longer than I thought, lol.
