Cool 2008 A-Z Author Challenge Chit Chat

Okay, let's try this one more time. Again, I am so sorry for whatever I did to make the last thread I created disappear. Luckily we didn't have too much stuff in it that couldn't be covered again.

A frew reminders and answers to questions posted on the last thread.


In the A-Z Challenge each person is completing her own alphabet. If I mark "B" off of my list that does not mean that it disappears from yours.

In the challenge each person can keep track of their progress in their siggy if they want to. Krystal designed an awesome graphic for us to use, so just pop over to the sig request pick up board to get your copy.

In the challenge each person will also keep track of their progress in the "A-Z Author's Challenge Stats" thread. Each person (currently signed up) had a thread with their name and the initial blank A-Z list. Each time you read a book for the challenge you can go in to your list on that thread and edit it in to the list. Please include both the author name and book title.

There are quite a few "X" authors. Just remember that you can use both first and last names for this challenge. So, if you find an author who has an "X" first name you could use them for the the challenge for the letter "X". If you found an authors with a last name beginning with "X" you could use that author for the challenge.

You may not use the same author twice for the challenge. So, if you use, for example, Nicholas Sparks, for your "S" you may not also use him for your "N".

Again, I'm sorry I screwed up and deleted or lost the chit chat thread I had only just created yesterday. Hopefully though I've covered pretty much everything so far that was in it. I will be back later with more "X" authors since I did locate several earlier.

Oh, and I believe the website Alison mentioned for alphabetical searching was http://www.fantasticfiction.co.uk/.

To use your example, if we read 2 books by Nicholas Sparks, could we use him for N and S?

No. You can't use the same author more than once for this challenge.

I've already added one to my list. I'm not sure if that is how we are to list them.
