The 2013 Alphabetical Challenge for November is for the letters K and Y
Don't forget to update the wiki with your challenge books:
That is an unfortunate combination of letters. I much preferred G & T!
At least seeing this thread reminded me that I need to post the "J" I just finished today.
I'm thinking of tackling one of my Sharon K Penman tomes for this month's challenge.
I finished my first November AlphaCat for "Y", You Are One of Them by Elliott Holt.
Yesterday I completed Young Bloods by Simon Scarrow. My first Y book for the month. It is historical fiction, telling the story of Napoleon and Wellington (the first in a quartet).
Finished my Y book - Don't Quit Your Day Job - really enjoyed this book.
I've got some possibilities for K and Y books in my physical and virtual TBR piles, but I'm now starting Barbara Pym's "An Academic Question", recording it here since if there was a thread for the year long Q and X books, I can't find it.
I'm half way though The Serpent and the Pearl by Kate Quinn - there's a K and a Q.
I always forget to post my completions here. I finished Brooklyn, NY 2-Day Foodie Tour by Kelley Gudahl.
I finished my Y book for November: The Yiddish Policemen's Union by Michael Chabon. It's also a Hugo winner and fits this month's AwardsCAT.
>36 Robertgreaves: I loved that book!
I read The Girl in the Green Sweater by Krystyna Chiger. It is a memoir of a young polish jew girl's survival of WWII. Now I am reading The Shadow Year. I probably only have 100 pages to go so I had a lot of trouble putting it down last night as some plot twists are starting to be revealed!
I read The History of Love by Nicole Krauss and A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man by James Joyce.
I read A Small Place by Jamaica Kincaid. I wish I had tried some of her fiction instead.
