A-Z Challenge

A-Z Challenge
I’m participating in this challenge in two separate locations: CafeMom (a forum) and by Joy at Thoughts of Joy (visit the A-Z Challenge blog for participants and book review links). The rules: read one book from each letter of the alphabet, one book for a title and another for the author. Click on a link for my review.
