This month's challenge is a S*P*E*L*L challenge.

Choose any one (or more) of these words and spell the word using the FIRST letter of the title (excl A, An, The), or the Author's First or Last Initial. A book may be used only once for the challenge. (i.e. You cannot use the title for one letter, and the author name of the same book for another letter.) Feel free to use any book in this challenge for other challenges, however.

Words to spell:
Teacher
Apple
Diez y seis
Sixteen
Leaves
Grandparents
Mystery
Aster
Sapphire

=================================

Challenge Rules
* Books must be at least 100 pages long
* Page numbers are determined by the Hardcover edition. If there is no hardcover, you may use the most popular paperback edition. (Use these editions to determine page numbers regardless of the format you read - audio, e-book, etc)
* A book may be used only once per challenge. But feel free to use the same book in other challenges.
* If you want credit for finishing, please post a "completed" message. The moderator does not get notification when you edit your original post, only when you make a new post.
* Have fun!
