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?

Gayla Bassham (Sophronisba) | 633 comments The author's name just has to contain a Z, right? So Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie would count?


Heather KS | 274 comments What about Mark Z. Danielewski? The Z is his middle initial, but it appears to be his official author name. Would he work?

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) | 1798 comments I found Zoya or I can read Marion Zimmerman Bradley.


Dee | 3939 comments Marcus Zusack (The Book Thief; The Messenger)
Zannie Adams - Romantica

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

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