30.4 - Dlmrose's Task: It's In the DNA

DNA is stored as a code made up of four chemicals that form base pairs: adenine (A) with thymine (T) AT or TA and cytosine (C) with guanine (G), CG or GC.

Read 2 books

Book 1: Read a book written by a single author with first and last name initials that match the adenine-thymine pair initials AT or TA or the cytosine-guanine initials CG or GC.
examples: AT= Amor Towles, TA = Tim Akers, CG = Christopher Golden , GC = Glen Cook

Book 2: Read a book with consecutive words in the TITLE that begin with the adenine-thymine pair initials AT or TA or the cytosine-guanine initials CG or GC.
examples: AT = The Truth of All Things, TA = Thin Air, CG = Code Girls: The Untold Story of the American Women Code Breakers Who Helped Win World War II, GC = Grand Cayman Slam

The first and last initials are A T, that's fine
