Write out your first name and then find books that start with each of the letters in your name.

Ex: If your name were Kate you would write it out like:

K -
A -
T -
E -

Then, find a book that starts with each of those letters.

Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) Question : Do these challenges start when we join the group? Or for the year, or what?


message 4: by [deleted user] (new)

Yeah, I'd like to know that, too...

Heather T (horrorvacui000) | 532 comments Mod
Generally when you join. They're all just for fun. No due dates on these I've just been using what I've read within the last week.


message 6: by Zakiya (new)

Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) Oh okay. Well I think I will start from today. Thanks, Heather. Oh, can we maybe use our middle names if we finish the first?


message 7: by Heather (last edited Sep 02, 2010 04:32PM) (new)

Heather T (horrorvacui000) | 532 comments Mod
Ya. If you want to make it harder use your full name or name and nickname.
In a to z I'm working on that in another group so I just used what I was doing there to get things going. I wouldn't go back more than a month from before you join though


message 8: by Zakiya (new)

Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) Alright. I'm just going to make it hard on myself and start now. It's more of a challenge for me if I do it that way. Think I will use Zakiya first, then Kiya, which is my nickname. Or maybe Kiki, or Nerd. Haha!


message 9: by Angela (new)

Angela B And since they are just for fun I'm guessing it's ok if books overlap?


message 10: by Angela (last edited Sep 02, 2010 07:10PM) (new)

Angela B A- Awaken Me Darkly
N- Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs
G- Greyhound

and my middle not sure I'll do these though

It might be a bit before I pick something for the last few letters

Heather T (horrorvacui000) | 532 comments Mod
It's kind of up to you. I won't use the same book for 6 different challenges, but it it works as a letter and a country, you could. Or, you can make it harder and don't let anything overlap. I'm trying not to overlap too much, but I'm sure I will a little.


message 12: by Angela (new)

Angela B I think I am only using them in 2 challenges so far but I think the location ones might make it a 3rd depending on where the books are set


message 13: by Heather (new)

Heather T (horrorvacui000) | 532 comments Mod
I won't be nit-picky like I have to be in Delerity.
