Hi guys,

This game is a variation of the 'name a character' games played in other groups.

What you do is this:

1. Start with the name of an author, for example, Jane Austen.
2. The person below will respond with the name of an author starting with the last letter of the preceding reply, for example, Nerida Newton, and continue the chain.

Note: You can make use of the 'add book/author' link just above the message box for assistance.

Hope you guys have fun! :)

@Sharadha you will like her if you are a fan of romance. She is easy to read. I used to read her fairly regularly some time back.

Dan Brown

Romance? I thought she was mystery (but I don't mind either :D). Do you have recommendations?

It doesn't need to be the ones you've read.. It's just a game - a way of discovering new authors, and, oh, discovering their hidden works (like you did Citizen Kane) :).
