Yep - it's an "A" - so it works!

Yes, as long as GR has her listed as an author, it works.

FYI - I'm going to be away until Sunday, and will have limited computer access. I'll try to get on here and answer questions if possible, but can't promise anything.

Happy Thanksgiving!

since z is at the end of the alphabet, pretty appropriate, huh?

For example: The Alchemist"


The first letter has to be A, so a book starting with "The" doesn't work.


Jayme(the ghost reader) (JaymeILtheghostreader) | 1987 comments I found Zoya or I can read Marion Zimmerman Bradley.

message 6: by Usako (new)

Usako (bbmeltdown) | 1334 comments Jayme, for the Z part, the title or author's name only needs to contain a Z.

So for my choice, I'm doing The Zookeeper's Wife


Jayme(the ghost reader) (JaymeILtheghostreader) | 1987 comments I need an author who's last name starts with Z.

Usako (bbmeltdown) | 1334 comments Does "The" count to the A title?

For example: The Alchemist
