Casey, your last choice - The Business of Death - is the trilogy (books 1-3) Did you mean to put that one there, or did you mean The Business of Death which is #3? (confusing because of both the same titles!)

Hi Amanda, the way to select your spell-it-out books is to choose your word, and then choose a book for each letter of the word in which (a) the author's first or last name or (b) the first word of the title, normally excluding 'The' and 'A', begins with the corresponding letter. One of the best ways to understand the way the spell-it-out works is to look at the posts made by experienced Aussie Readers, like our moderators, to see how they do it. I hope this helps. If in doubt, don't hesitate to ask Brenda or Phrynne or Sally for help.
