    Do you pick your own books or is it a Litsy suggested reading list? I think I might do an A-Z list as well as the Bingo, but I’m going to create my list as I go. If I plan out my list I will never do it, but if I say, I need to read a “C” book then I will search for something. Also, I’ve been thinking of doing it by Author name too that way I can explore even more! All that being said, let me know how An Ishmael of Syria is. I’ve had my eyes on it since it came out.

    • You make your own list – people have mixed it up and done the list by author name (which makes x a lot easier to find) or a mix of author name and title. My list is a mixture of two challenges I was already noodling with for next year anyway, but whatever works for you is always the best way to go.

      An Ishmael in Syria looks great – I think it might be the first cab off the rank in 2017. 🙂
