Book Meme: Titles A-Z

The rules:

*Fill in each letter of the alphabet with a title of a book that you've read that begins with that letter (e.g. American Psycho for the letter A).
*Articles (a, an, the) don't count in alphabetizing, so skip to the first letter of the next word (i.e. A Thousand Splendid Suns would count for the letter T, The Great Gatsby would count for the letter G, and so on).
*Titles that start with or are entirely composed of numbers will be alphabetized by how they would be spelled when written out (i.e. 1984 would count as an N for Nineteen Eighty-Four).
*The letter X space will be special. The title will only have to include the letter X to count (i.e. Don Quixote). This isn't necessarily as easy as it sounds.

A - American Gods by Neil Gaiman
B - Black Dahlia by James Ellroy

Don't you love Isabel Dalhousie? I do adore Alexander McCall Smith's books. Have you read any of the #1 Ladies Detective Agency Series? Fabulous, and being made into a series for BBC...if we're lucky, we'll get it some day.

Yeah, she's a great character, and I actually started the #1 Ladies series first (I think the third one is next for me) before I'd found Dalhousie.
