15.2 - Which Witch?
Homophones are words that sound the same but are spelled differently. Read TWO books with matching homophones in their titles/subtitles. Example: Sail and A Gun for Sale (sail/sale). The homophones must be complete, stand-alone words and, for the purposes of this task, they must be found listed on this site: Homophones. Plurals and possessives are allowed as long as both homophones are plurals or possessives.

The standard rule for using children's books in the SRC, which is spelled out in the Rules of the Challenge, must be met. So, no, this book won't work.

Lulu (robotwitch) I'm just checking these words are long enough - "inn" and "in" together? They are on the homophone website.

I was thinking Jamaica Inn and Written in Red or A Stranger in Olondria.

Yes, inn/in works.

Deedee | 2108 comments The Homophone site lists:
Bell / belle

would
Bells / belles
work?

Thanks!

No, sorry. The homophones must be complete, stand-alone words and be found listed on the homophone site, which has all the numbers spelled out. So TO/TWO can be used but not TO/2.

They're on that homophones list. They work.
