Challenge Summary:Welcome in the Alphabet Challenges group!
This group is for anyone that wants to participate in an alphabet challenge.
You can create your alphabet from the first letters of the books titles or from the first letters of the authors names or from anything else.
Two possible challenges are:
- The authors alphabet - books written by authors which last name start with every letter of the alphabet
- The books alphabet - books which titles start with every letter of the alphabet
The alphabets can be done in order or without order - up to everyone's preferences.
Welcome and good luck :)
PS: If you have troubles finding an author starting with a given letter, http://www.fantasticfiction.co.uk is a good resource.
