The 26 Book Alphabet Challenge

I can't remember now who introduced me to this book challenge but I did a little search to find the rules and came upon a group on Shelfari called 'Read the Alphabet'. The point is to read at least 26 books, one for each letter of the alphabet. For example, 'Alice In Wonderland' would work for 'A', 'Black Beauty' for 'B', and 'Call of the Wild' for 'C'. There are little additional rules such as 'The' cannot count for 'T','A Christmas Carol' should not be used for the letter 'A', and 'I Capture the Castle' shouldn't be used for the letter 'I'. The same goes with 'An', 'As', 'At', etc.
Anyway, here is my Alphabet Challenge so far. I'm not reading books solely for this challenge, though, so I've read more than one for some letters. I'm also not including short stories or graphic novels into this challenge.

This can also be done with author names and is a good way to keep the challenge going once you've read a book for each letter.
