CHARACTERS

From Filius Flitwick to Harry Potter, each character brings something special to the world. We couldn't have a Harry Potter themed challenge without giving some special attention to some of the amazing characters who brought the world to life. This will be a spell-it-out challenge. Perfect for using those quiet member books, and ensure that even slower readers can win points for the team.

RULES

For each letter read books with titles, series names, authors (first or last names) that begin with letters that correspond to the word you choose. You also can use main or secondary characters (first or last names, and also nicknames). You may ignore the indefinite and definite articles (a, an, the, etc.)


IMPORTANT NOTE
These will be open for the entire rest of the challenge and can be done in no particular order. It will grant extra points for completion BUT it will also give negative points for lack of. You may use any unused books since the start of the challenge for completion.
