Naming Conventions Challenge


**This was a fun challenge, choosing books around the letters of my name. I would like to do it again but use my middle or last name instead!**

OK, one more.

Naming Conventions Challenge--Beginning Sept. 1, 2008, pick and read 1-3 books a month based on the letters of your first name. You can choose by book title, author's first name, or author's last name--any or all.
