I found the Bookshelf ABC Challenge on Annemieke’s A Dance With Books blog. She found it on Liesbet’s zwartraafje/Black Raven blog. Their links are included so make sure to visit their blogs.
I struggled with X but managed to find the rest. Most of the books are still waiting to be read. I have been buying a lot of books (and shoes) lately. Can you find a book for each letter of the alphabet on your bookshelf?

Awesome! I look forward to seeing your books. 🙂
Also worth a read is Beyond Enkription, the first stand-alone espionage thriller in The Burlington Files series, which is based on the real life of Bill Fairclough, aka Edward Burlington, who was an agent for MI6 and the CIA, established FaireSansDire and wrote the series. Beyond Enkription (intentionally misspelt) is set in London, Nassau and Port au Prince in the seventies when Edward Burlington unwittingly started working for MI6 and infiltrated a global organised crime syndicate. The protagonist has been likened to a “posh Harry Palmer”. Indeed, Len Deighton and Mick Herron could be forgiven for thinking they co-wrote this monumental thriller. Interestingly, you may not have heard of The Burlington Files before, but time will remedy that. Just like Mick Herron’s Slough House series, The Burlington Files series was rejected by know-all publishers who probably thought they understood espionage having read about 007. Nevertheless, in real life Fairclough and Co’s wires crossed those of many spooks who have been written about such as Oleg Gordievsky, Greville Wynne, Oleg Penkovsky, David Cornwell, Graham Greene, Kim Philby, Anthony Blunt et al.
