      Tell me about it! I have two E’s and two Y’s in the name I used! I might have read one Y book and one E book this week, just so I could complete this challenge. πŸ™‚

  1. I loved it, it was lots of fun πŸ™‚ I wanted to use only books I’ve read & loved, and it was fun going through my bookshelf, especially because I didn’t want to use the same titles I did for Dewey’s πŸ˜‰ Thanks for hosting! You’ll see a pattern in mine, lots of Neil Gaiman titles there, but after all, he is my #1 fav author πŸ˜€

  2. LOVED this challenge! It really made me think about what’s on my tbr list and how long it’s been there. May have inadvertently created a personal challenge in the process. πŸ™‚

  3. I thought this challenge was super hard! I tried to spell out my name, Stefani, first, but didn’t have any N books. :/ So I decided to show my nerdiness and spell out TARDIS. I liked being able to show how wide-ranging my book tastes are. This was really fun! Thanks for hosting! πŸ™‚

  4. I had fun creating the image(s) for today. I changed it up a bit and cropped the book covers into each letter and gave a quick hint for each book. The answers are hidden for you to reveal if you want to try and guess before seeing the answer. Post link.

  5. This challenge was very interesting, reminded me a bit of that challenge going around Youtube where you have 3 minutes to create words with your books! It’s super fun, thanks for doing it πŸ™‚

  6. I enjoyed this challenge. It was hard enough to give my mind a break from reading to focus on something else but not so involved that it took a lot of time or work. I like that in a challenge. Plus I got to look back through the books I’ve read recently and choose the ones I really enjoyed. I’m glad I have easy letters in my name! Thanks! πŸ™‚

  7. This was a great challenge. I had to really think about what word(s) I wanted spell out and then I had to scour my bookshelves for titles with those letters. It was really fun. Thanks for hosting this challenge! : )

  8. This was a fun challenge! Definitely made me think. If our electricity and internet would have been back up quicker after the storms, I would have maybe done my middle name too. πŸ™‚ Thanks for hosting!

  9. This challenge was a lot of fun for me and definitely got me thinking about what books I want to read sooner rather than later! Thanks for hosting!
