Read a book whose author's name, when written in English, has a unique character in it. Periods and commas will not be considered unique; dashes and apostrophes will. Examples: Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Charlotte Brontë, Flannery O'Connor, Kyōichi Katayama.

Amanda | 1527 comments I just picked up The Third Policeman by Flann O'Brien from an op shop yesterday for $2.25, and now I have a reason to read it! :)

I am sure I had worked out a task for Vernon God Little which i also picked up, but now I can't remember which one it was ...

No Letter O.


Elizabeth (Alaska) | 12434 comments I have on my shelf, waiting patiently, The Nautical Chart by Arturo Pérez-Reverte. We'll see if it makes the cut. Also, of course, there is my perennial favorite Honoré de Balzac, so he might get slipped in here.

No Letter O."


Should work for Young Men too, I think. I've moved it to the bedroom, which is closed now as it is 4.55 and husband is sleeping, but i am sure the main character is 15.

Cat (cat_uk) | 303 comments Just checking if I have to go by the GR records or not.
Specifically, The Rose & the Dagger (The Wrath & the Dawn, #2) by Renee Ahdieh by Renee Ahdieh
on the cover, you can see the accented e, and on her own website (http://www.reneeahdieh.com/) she uses the accent - in the text, I mean, but it's not in the GR link.

Can I use her for this one?

We'll go with the GR profile without the accents, especially as a GR author, and is the one who sets up her profile, so she could have chosen to use the accents.

Works for historical, though - so you won't need to post over there to reserve it - and 10.2. and 10.5!

I suspected as much. Silly person, setting up her profile all wrong for me!

I should correct my previous post as to the combos. This is a YA at Brooklyn Public Library and has a Lexile of 690, so you can claim for the task but no styles.
