Twenty-Six Different Books

Just when you thought you’d seen the last of the meme, I had to go and drag one out of the timeless depths of the Internet. This is the ABC Book Meme:

For this meme, you list a favorite book that starts with each letter of the alphabet. If you don’t have a book for a letter (such as Z or X) than you can substitute a favorite book that simply has that letter in the title (ex. The Lost City of Z or Hot Six by Janet Evanovich). However, you can only do this a maximum of 3 times. (Z, X, and Q. But not Z, X, Q, and V.) Books can be of any genre from fiction to non-fiction to poetry to textbooks.

I created my list the easy way, by sorting my LibraryThing catalog alphabetically and then by checking my ratings. Of course, many times there were letters of the alphabet with only one book, and sometimes that was not even a good one. A few times there was not even that.
