A to Z Blog Challenge – Letter X AtoZChallenge 2018 X

Welcome to the 2018 edition of the A to Z Blogging Challenge!

All through the month of April, the challenge asks us to blog every day (except Sundays), and to go through the alphabet A to Z, connecting our posts to the letter of each day.

My idea for this time, my 5th to participate, is to showcase a book or two each day, and provide a tiny bit of information about them. These will not be a full book review, but just saying what it is about, and if I liked the book or not.

These books are mostly books that I already have on my shelves, and have read, or are on my to be read stacks. There will be a very few of them that I don’t already own, or have read.

I will also post a quote each day that has something to say about books, or reading.

Hope you enjoy, and maybe see a book or a few that you might want to read, too.

“Xenocide”, by Orson Scott Card, is the third book in the ‘Ender’s Game’ series. I haven’t read this one, or if I did, I don’t remember it. I thought I’d read quite a few of this series in order, but some further down the list, I do remember. Anyway, the books say the planet the people live on is in peril, and they have recruited Ender, and a lot of other children/teens to become proficient in computer war games, training for the real war to come.

I know , the letter today is X, but lots of times you see the word Xtra, so this will have to do, as I couldn’t find any more book titles starting with X.

“Extra Nutty! Even More Letters From a Nut”, by Ted L. Nancy, is another of the books he wrote about writing funny, and outrageous letters to businesses. He wanted to see what response he’d get, and he did get a lot. All the letters are in the book, and are so hilarious.
