So I have a question for you guys! For those tricky letters, like X & Z:

Should we just skip them?
Should we keep them and use them like normal?
Should we keep them but have the ability to have the author's name start with the letter?
Should we keep them but have the ability to have the book's title have the letter somewhere in the title (so not necessarily the first letter)?
Or a combination of the above mentioned options?

What would you like to do??? :)


message 29: by Katherine (last edited Jun 13, 2013 05:44PM) (new)

Katherine | 69 comments Hmm.. I think we shouldn't skip them entirely. We should make it so that the letter X and Z are anywhere in the author's name or the title of the book. Cause X's and Z's need a little love as well!


message 30: by Amanda (new)

Amanda I agree. I think that having X and Z anywhere in the Title or Authors name would work.


message 31: by Caitlin (last edited Jun 14, 2013 05:06AM) (new)

Caitlin  | 30 comments i agree with Katherine and Amanda anywhere in the title and authors name to give more of a choice to the reader.


message 32: by Bonny Bon Bon (new)

Bonny Bon Bon (bonnybonbon) | 22 comments I also agree with the ladies above. X and Y shouldnt b skipped (they did nothing wrong) and that they can be anywhere in the title or authors name.

And i also have a couple questions.
Are we allowed to reread any books we have?
Is there a time limit - say of a week to read it once you have posted our letter?
When will this fun challenge start?

Just so im clear :) cause ive recently finished a book and wont start another until i know

Brianna♥ (briannaforrest) | 964 comments Mod
You can definitely reread a book! :) Sorry, I guess I didn't put the length of the challenge above! The challenge will start tomorrow, Saturday, June 15 (at 12:00 AM Central Time). I will post the letters at that time. Then you will have until June 30 to finish the book (or as soon as you can finish it; it's ok if it takes a little longer :)). I'm going to post a new thread for July 1 - July 15 Alphabet Challenge right now! Feel free to sign up!

(And I'm going to rename this thread to reflect the dates of the challenge!)


message 34: by Trisha (last edited Jun 14, 2013 04:16PM) (new)

Trisha I vote skip 'em! :)

And thank you guys for the suggestions! The majority rules, sorry Trisha! :)

If you have a tricky letter (like X or Z, for example), you are allowed to have the letter assigned be found somewhere in the title or the author's name! This will allow you to be creative! ;)
