Why am I awake and blogging at four am? Good question. My daughter is sick and I had to get up at three to check on her. Now I can\’t get back to sleep (husband snores pretty loud). So here we are. Well, KittyCat from Right Reads tagged me a few days ago for this alphabet meme I\’ve seen floating around forever. I was surprised how easy it was to come up with these titles! For every book listed here I easily thought of a few more, so maybe I\’ll do a second alphabet meme in the future. These are mostly old favorites (except for maybe Up the Down Staircase. It was good, but I wouldn\’t really call it a favorite. I couldn\’t think of another U title, though).

Zoo Where You\’re Fed to God, The– Michael Ventura
Loved Bone People and Poisonwood Bible. And I\’m excited to see you have a review of The Zoo where You\’re Fed to God–I picked that up on at a used sale a few years ago because I liked the title, but haven\’t heard anything about it!
Hmmm–Ok–not a review. So you\’d recommend it?
Sorry about that! Maybe I should have just posted links to my reviews, but I wanted to give people something to read about each book, as some of them are less-known…. Yes, I\’d recommend it. It\’s kind of an odd story, quirky but interesting. Not like any other I\’ve read! I\’ll make a point to write about that one soon.
No worries! Just excited to see the title and know someone else who read it!
