Hello, Why are using the string "Books"? It is asking you to make a bullet point list of the continents.

for continent in continents:
    print("*" ,continent)

Let me know if you have questions.

for part 2of 2 you want to check the first character for each continent.

for continent in continents:
    if continent [0] == 'A':
        print("*" ,continent)

Thank you so much! And the "books" must've been accidentally copied from somewhere else lol.

Its saying Oops I have found a country that doesn't start with A in your code so please help once again on the second part
