Reading Challenges

The Unlikely Adventures of the Shergill Sisters

One of the challenges I do every year, Around the Year in 52 books, ATY; has already put out their list for next year. One of the prompts is A book related to a codeword from the NATO Phonetic Alphabet. Someone else had an idea to do a side challenge doing the whole NATO alphabet instead of just one. It was fun making interpretations to fit.
