The Rules (for there must always be RULES):
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. This may make for some odd choices, but them's the breaks.
3. You must have actually READ the book. (I thought of lots that started with some letters, but I hadn't read them.)
4. If you think of a more impressive-sounding book for a particular letter, but you've already written your first thought down, you CANNOT change to the more impressive-sounding book. As an example, you have to leave "Fifty Famous Fairy Tales" (the Whitman Publishing pink and white one) on the list, even if you come up with fifty more impressive books afterwards.
5. If you can think of a book for X, you win... my lasting admiration (I can't afford real prizes!)
