15.3 - Common Good
Choose an option.
Required: Indicate the option.

Option 1: Read one Book 1 AND one Book 2.

Book 1: Read a book written by an author whose FIRST name as it appears on Goodreads begins with a letter that appears on this list of the most common initial letters in first names in English: J, M, R, A, D, C.
Authors who use an initial in the first name place DO work. One qualifying author in a work with multiple contributors works.
AND
Book 2: Read a book written by an author whose LAST name as it appears on Goodreads begins with a letter that appears on this list of the most common initial letters in last names in English: R, M, W, B, C, S.
A last name is a name in the final name place preceded by a space. One qualifying author in a work with multiple contributors works.

Option 2: Read ONE book that fulfills both Book 1 and Book 2 requirements.

Becky Gust (knitgirl2006) I am wondering if Heidi by Johanna Spyri would qualify for Option 2?

The initials work. It has the genre childrens so you would need to check AR (Accelerated Reader) Bookfinder and include the scores when you post.

Perfect! I just check AR Bookfinder and everything looks good. I will include the scores when I post -- thanks for the help!

Trish (trishhartuk) | 2495 comments Can I use the name of an an author for this task if it's a pen name for two people? (Otherwise, I might end up using it for my own task!)

We go by the name on the Goodreads book record. If the name is listed and it fits the task it would work.

Bouchra Rebiai (bouchrarebiai) | 93 comments I have a book that has two authors, one author qualifies for the first name requirement and the other qualifies for the last name requirement.

Would it qualify for the one book option?

Yes, that would work for the one book option. Please include both authors when you post.

Siobhan Johnson | 268 comments Would The Kissing Booth Girl and Other Stories by A.C. Wise work for option 2?

It's fine if not, I always have Agatha Christie patiently waiting for me, but I just realised that it could possibly fit and fell out of my chair with (possibly premature) excitement!

Kelli (kk00) Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

Does J.K.Rowling work as a book covering both option 1 and option 2 (first initial J last name initial R)?
