Booked by 3 April Edition

Ack and mea culpa. I'd meant to post this last week. Where has the time gone? I'm not sure I want to know the answer.

Anyway, I thought we'd try a game this time, first in a perhaps continuing alphabet game.

ABC
Name 3 books you liked, titles which start with A, B, C (one per letter).
Name 3 authors you like whose names (given or surname) start with A, B, C (one per letter).
Name 3 books on your To Read list with titles starting with A, B, C (one per letter).

My answers in a few days. I'll have to think on this one a bit. If this works, meaning, folks play, we can try it again in a few months with the next 3 letters.

  10. I'm VERY late, but this prompt caught my eye when I did your May one. I figured the next time I needed a prompt I'd go back and do this one. So I did! It's up here
