Alex's Lists

Throughout the series, Alex and his friends discuss Alex's website: a collection of lists. Here, with the help of my affiliate Andrew, we've archived the lists. In addition, Alex's website has been recreated and can be viewed here.

On this page, we've listed all the lists that were mentioned in each book and who came up with the list idea. Please note that not all these lists were actually put on Alex's website. Some of the lists here were not intended for the website--but they are still fun. =)
