Read through all of the Children's Picture Books in the children's section of our local library.
To work my way from A to Z.
Books will be checked out by other patrons and I'll probably miss a title or two (or 10 or 20). However, I'll have still hit the majority which will number in the 10's of thousands. New books might be added to the library's collection after I've read through a particular letter of the alphabet. C'est la vie!
The organizational process:
To go in and check out books in sections. At our library, the books are organized alphabetically by author and so, for starters, I went in and grabbed the first 35 books to begin with. I checked out all of the books that had been sectioned off from between the first two bookends starting at 'A'. At times the librarians might think a bit of library vandalism is going on. I eliminated the need for the bookends with my first haul. This will happen section by section, row by row until I have made my way around the room, from Aardema to Zunshine and whoever is in between. I'm sure I shall make lots of new friends (and perhaps might develop a few mortal enemies!)
To read the fun books I find with my children.
The time frame: However long it takes. I anticipate this will be a 1-2 year project. I would definitely prefer to finish in a single year. But I'm a mother of two little ones and they take priority around here!
