For something different, we will have an A-Z CHARACTER challenge for 2020. To complete this challenge, read a book in which a main character's first or last name begins with the corresponding letter. For the hard letters Q, X, Y and Z, you may use a name in which the letter appears somewhere in the main character's first or last name - it does not have to be the first letter. One book per letter - 26 books in total

There's to be a minimum of 6 Aussie Authors for this challenge :)
And don't forget our challenge guidelines here

message 7: by Sally906 (new)

Sally906 | 6507 comments Is it only one name from each book?

For instance - in a romance there are two main characters. Let’s say I read A Christmas Wish - the two main characters are Megan and William - can I use both names to cover letters M & W? Or is it one name per book?

I’m taking it as the one name from each book - but just checking 😀

I’m in the UK and not Aussie, so I’ll be pinching ideas for 6 Aussie authors from you guys as I have done on other challenges. I’ve found it a great way to discover both new authors and the fact that a few of my faves are Aussie 😁

I would think so Amanda. Unless there seems to be a different "main character" I would use the person the memoir is about :)

Well you'd have to use the surname for one and the first for the other. Because it's 2 different books, that's okay :)
