I decided to participate in this challenge once more, if only to encourage me to review some books. This is the tenth year this challenge runs and it continues to be fun and challenging enough to be interesting while not being too long or too difficult to finish (unlike this one , which I was briefly tempted to participate in). I will strike out each category as I finish the books, and post reviews as soon as I'm finished writing them. The categories are: A number in numbers A building A title which has an ‘X’ somewhere in it A compass direction An item/items of cutlery A title in which at least two words share the same first letter – alliteration! Other necessary information can be found on the hosting blog , The Worm Hole.
