2016 MGR Reading Challenge

Going to try this one now. I passed on it last year, but want to do it now. I'll be doing the spelling-out option.  Go here to sign up and see more details and options.

I have listed the first book I read that begins with each letter and number.

MGR Reading buttonHappy 2016 ladies! While there are many reading challenges out there for you to choose from, we thought it might be fun to do a Mocha Girls Read inspired challenge. The challenge is simple because the are three to pick from.
  1.  You can pick SPELL IT OUT CHALLENGE.  The idea is to have fun reading books with titles that will spell out “MOCHA GIRLS 16” by the end of the year.  That is a total of 12 books.
  2. You can pick the BOOK OF THE MONTH CHALLENGE.  The easier one is to read all the books selected for the book of the month.  That will be a total of 12 books.
  3. There is one more for you to select the CHAPTER CHALLENGE.  You can read one book set in the cities or state Mocha Girls Read calls home.  Total of 4 books.

How it Works

You can do this challenge in many ways: 
SPELL IT OUT CHALLENGE: Choose books with TITLES that spell out “Mocha Girls” (1 title per letter of the alphabet). The title must begin with the letter you are completing.
