Kate S | 6140 comments Read a book by an author whose initials in any order can be either the two-letter postal abbreviation for a U.S. State/Territory or Canadian Province. Examples: O. Henry=OH (Ohio); Ayelet Waldman=WA (Washington); Carol Rifka Blunt=BC (British Columbia); Anna Katherine Green=AK (Alaska). All initials can be used. Note: both "NB" and "NE" will be accepted for Nebraska.

Please discuss Task 10.9 here.

Yes, NB is for New Brunswick. I don't know the US postal abbreviations well enough to say whether it is accepted for Nebraska as well though. **> edit = I see the link above says NE + NB

Bea | 1593 comments Nebraska used to have postal code NB but it was changed to NE. The task creator is simply stating that this task will accept both for that state.

Sam (theliteraryhooker) | 1008 comments Great, thanks! I wasn't 100% sure that just initial names would count.
