Kristina Simon (kristinasimon) | 10974 comments 15.1 -- The Land Down Under
A. Read one book with the words “Down” and “Under” anywhere in the title, subtitle, or author’s name. For example, the word "Down" may be in the title and the word "Under" could be part of the author's name or vice versa. Additions to the words are OK. Ex. Downstairs, Downing, Underwater, Underwood
OR
B. Read two books. One with the word “Down” and one with the word “Under” anywhere in the title, subtitle, or author’s name. Additions to the words are OK.

Beth | 665 comments Ursula, Under was really good if anybody needs a recommendation for an 'under' book.

Cindy AL (cangelmd) | 664 comments Aunt Dimity Down Under - I'm reading this one.

I have this one on my list of possibilities, too, but it's #15 in a series I've never read before. Does anyone know if the Aunt Dimity books can be read out of order?

Christine US (christineus) | 572 comments I found this at my library.

Sisterchicks Down Under


message 13: by Amanda (new)

Amanda (amandapearl) | 273 comments what if under is part of a bigger word, for example "understanding" and is in the title? Would that work, or does that only apply to the author's name?

Additions to the words "down" or "under" in the title or in the author's name are fine. So "understanding" will work.

Rosemary | 640 comments So any word where the letters 'under' appear is OK, even if the meaning is not 'under'? E.g. Thunder, or Milan Kundera?

I haven't read them either, but I saw a comment in another group that the Aunt Dimity books need to be read in order.

Good to know. I'm pretty sure my read-every-series-in-order OCD wouldn't have let me do it anyway...

Thanks, Sue!

Lindsey (mamamunky) | 172 comments Would Medicus by Ruth Downie work?

Yes, she'd work for "down."

Melanie (melaina) | 381 comments Oooh... Would the Lords of the Underworld series work? That would be awesome, since the newest book has just come out:-D

No, sorry, the words need to be in the title or subtitle (or author's name). Series titles won't work.

Pity:-) Thx though


message 25: by Sandra (new)

Sandra (sandra72) | 726 comments So if I understand correctly, the book Thunderhead would work for "under" and Countdown for "down"?

You are correct. They'll both work.
