ABC, you and me…

A challenge I received from Mister Stephen Gallagher for the more bookish among us.

1. Go through the alphabet, and for each letter, think of a book you’ve read that starts with that letter (A, An, and The do not count).

2. You must write down the FIRST book you think of for any given letter.

3. You must have actually READ the book.

4. If you think of a more impressive-sounding book for a particular letter, you CANNOT change to the more impressive-sounding book.

American Gods
The Bitch
A Clash of Cymbals
Danny the Champion of the World
Empire of the Sun
The First Men in the Moon
Grey Lensman
Hunters of Gor
Illuminatus!
Jaws
Kane and Abel
Lucky Jim
The Man in the High Castle
Norstrilia
Oliver Twist
President Fu Manchu (Might have been The Princess Bride. Who knows? But Loli mentioned it to me, so it’s not the first one I thought of…)
The Queen of the Damned
The Rime of the Ancient Mariner
The Skylark of Space
Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea
Ulysses
The Voyage of the Dawn Treader
Watership Down
Xenocide
The Young Visiters
Z for Zachariah

Damn. My roots are showing.

No taggery for this one, it’s strictly voluntary, but stick a link in the comments if you do so I can read yours.

  1. I had a go and my list is up. I decided to exclude novelisations. Not sure why cos it made it a lot harder. Zardoz and the Eyes of Laura Mars got binned as a result.

    So that’s an afternoon killed.

  2. That’s a brilliant list. I’m thinking of cribbing it so-to-speak and reading many of those titles. I actually already have American Gods in my nightstand waiting to be started. I may even waste an afternoon and make my own list. :/
