Kate S | 6266 comments Cloud Atlas and The Cloud Atlas both have weather terms in their titles. Read a book with a title including one of these weather words.

Please post any questions or suggestions about task 10.6 in this thread.

Valerie Brown | 2599 comments In case I need this... Are plurals or possessives acceptable? (eg. suns or wind's)


Elizabeth (Alaska) | 12788 comments Yes, these are fine. We will accept some latitude on the list, but if you're unsure, please ask.

Yes, we'll take that. (I don't know why that isn't on the list! Sometimes we have the forecast: abundant sunshine)

Tien (tiensblurb) | 2659 comments I know right, Sunshine is definitely a 'weather' word

Thank you :)

Sorry, this is title does not contain any of the exact words or variations of the words on the list.

Rebekah (bekalynn) | 4485 comments Would chilly work for this task? Chill is on the list

Yes, we will accept chilly (but not chili nor chile).

Lalitha (falcon_) | 85 comments I have a tricky question. Now the title The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle does not refer to "wind" but technically has the word nevertheless. Would it work for this challenge?

No, because the word isn't wind with a short i, but wind with a long i. It's a heteronym - one of those funny English words that have two different pronunciations and different meanings.

Yes, I know :) was just trying my luck. I enjoy word puzzles. I did not know the technical term for such words....wind, tear, minute, wound...
