My literary alphabet

So many books and so little time but I have thought this week about all the wonderful authors I have discovered since doing the book trail and those that remain favourites ever since I read their first novel. So this led me to come up with a literary alphabet of all those authors I hold dear. It was very hard to do infact as there are so many that I could have had several alphabets really. However, this is one of them and I would love to know what yours is! A few children’s authors in there too – those I read now as we, we all have a child inside of us! And quite right too!

Do your own alphabet, let me know what you come up with. I think they should teach this in schools – makes a change from A for Apple doesn’t it?

      1. Oh yes! And then send me the link so I can repost – maybe we could encourage a few bloggers to do this and see the lists we build! I am looking forward to seeing who you come up with. I like learning about writers I may not have considered before.
