Sandra | 12734 comments Welcome Nici and the rest of our team.

*waves happily*

We have some returning faces to Bingo - Amanda & Shelleyrae and newbies, we'll be gentle, Nici, Sassy, Crystal, Sherri & Michelle.

First order of business is to select a name for our team.

Team 3's previous name was - One Fang Too Many

But I'm quite open to a new name so let's hear some suggestions.

message 10: by Sandra, Winter is Coming ... (new)

Sandra | 12734 comments Hi Michelle, glad to see you :)

Any suggestions for a name?


Michelle (Michelle_Mc) | 1376 comments Not off the top of my head, but I'll have a think about it :)


Crystal S (CrystalAnn) | 379 comments Just peeking in to say hi! No suggestions for a team name. I'm about the least creative person ever.


message 13: by Sandra, Winter is Coming ... (new)

Sandra | 12734 comments Glad to see you peeking in Crystal. I always said I was the least creative - we might have to tie!


Nici (queennici102) | 474 comments how about threes company? or the third fang? lol i will think of some more


Amanda A (carolinabookworm) | 407 comments Hi everyone! I'm looking forward to R2! I'm not very creative either, but I will keep thinking about it.


CyberAlmu | 302 comments Hi there!
Just stopped to say hello and wish you all good luck!

They say number 3 is the manifestation of perfection


message 17: by Sandra, Winter is Coming ... (new)

Sandra | 12734 comments Thanks CyberAlmu, striving for perfection is good, being there could be boring. LOL.

Hi Amanda, good to see you too!


message 18: by Sandra, Winter is Coming ... (new)

Sandra | 12734 comments Name suggestions so far -

Threes Company
Third Fang
Third Times A Charm
3XLucky

Keeep em coming!


message 19: by Sherri (last edited Mar 03, 2011 09:03AM) (new)

Sherri | 488 comments Hi All!! Glad to part of the team!! I'll think on the name but so far all of them are good.

Oh BTW, Since I am new to the group, let me introduce myself.

I'm Sherri, I live in Ypsilanti, Michigan which is just next door to Ann Arbor, where that university in maize and blue is. I'm 46, addicted to reading paranormals, romance, UF and every once in a while a cozy mystery. I have too many books to count and am trying desperately to rid myself of them. ;-D I play ice hockey in my spare time when I am not reading or working.

Anyone else care to introduce themselves?


♡ Sassy ~ Amy ♡ | 494 comments Hi! This is cool! I read a book about every other day. Just sitting and waiting around. I have never done this before, sooooo... send me a message if i miss something.


message 21: by Sandra, Winter is Coming ... (new)

Sandra | 12734 comments Glad to see you both here. I really wasn't kidding about the team name. All suggestions greatly received or just tell us which one you prefer of the ones listed.

And its a great idea to introduce ourselves. That includes you Nici, Michelle & Crystal.

Everyone probably already knows I'm from Australia, Sydney, home of the 2000 Olympics. That was a great party. I'm 51 and been a reader all my life. Married with no kiddies but lots of nieces & nephews & 1 new great nephew.


Crystal S (CrystalAnn) | 379 comments Well, alrighty then. I'm from Little Rock, Arkansas in the US. I live with my dog, Oliver. I'm a medical technologist, or a medical laboratory scientist (the professional terminology is changing). I run tests on blood, urine and other body fluids (yes, including poo) in a hospital lab. No one I know actually reads as much as I do and certainly no one reads the same kinds of books I do (primarily historical romance, erotica, PNR, UF, & YA paranormals). But most of you on Goodreads put me to shame. I just can't keep up! LOL


message 23: by Sandra, Winter is Coming ... (new)

Sandra | 12734 comments Crystal, I promise no poo jokes :)


message 24: by Shelleyrae (last edited Mar 03, 2011 06:09PM) (new)

Shelleyrae at Book'd Out | 346 comments Hi all
Its great to be part of the team. My name is Shelleyrae. Like Sandra I live in Australia, about a four hour drive up the coast from Sydney in a country/coastal town. I am 37, a married mother of 4 aged 5- 15, work part time in graphic design and teaching digital photography. I also read a lot and have a book review blog (hence the Book'd Out). Other than my life is pretty boring :)

Hmm names...I don't mind but i will throw a few more ideas in:

Triumvirate
Triple Threat
Eight is Enough
Reading Rabble
Book Slayers
Read and Bleed
Bibliobabes

I've sent out friend requests to those I wasn't already friends with too - I look forward to getting to know you all!


message 25: by Sandra, Winter is Coming ... (new)

Sandra | 12734 comments Yay, now that Shelleyrae is here, we're all accounted for.

Too funny that you listed Book Slayers Shelleyrae, I was reading about a serious book written about Buffy & Angel last night. It brought back all the memories of the shows.

OK, serious time, what do you all want to call ourselves?

So far we have

Threes Company
Third Fang
Third Times A Charm
3XLucky
Triumvirate
Triple Threat
Eight is Enough
Reading Rabble
Book Slayers
Read and Bleed
Bibliobabes

I'm liking Triple Threat or Read and Bleed - nice connotations

but we all need to say our preferences.


Sherri | 488 comments I like Book Slayers or Triple Threat.


♡ Sassy ~ Amy ♡ | 494 comments ok. I was really brief earlier because I was on my way out. So here goes.

My name is Amy, since there are some others on here, I just used a different name. so be it.

I just turned 40, but my 8 y/o boy thinks I am 30, because it finally occurred to him that you gain a year on your birthday. Sooo unfortunately, I could not stay 29 any longer.

I used to read all the time, but boy babies kill that. so I have not read for 7 years, and last easter, I started to read again.

I scope out what everyone is reading, to find new authors to add to my list I carry. I buy tons of books from thrift stores, after $500 at B&N. What a revelation that was! All my to read books are books I have found at the thrift store. I do not belong to a book group, and all my friends think I am crazy reading as fast as I do.

I love good wine, good chocolate (bliss), and great coffee... all are even better with a good book!

Sounds just like me, LOL.


Michelle (Michelle_Mc) | 1376 comments I like Book Slayers or Triple Threat...

I'm Michelle, a 31yr old married Mum of 3! I live in Scotland and I worked as a midwife but gave it up for my kids. My almost 6 year old has Autism and takes a lot of time & energy. Reading is my escape :)
I wouldn't change my life for anything though.

I'm really looking forward to the first shelf going up so we can get to pick a book (not that I need an excuse to read) :)


message 30: by Sandra, Winter is Coming ... (new)

Sandra | 12734 comments Well, so far it's looking like Triple Threat for the name. 4 votes if we include Shelleyrae, cause she coined it so I'm presuming she liked it too. LOL.

What's everybody else think? If I don't hear anything to the contrary by Saturday noon (10 hours from now) I'll be making an executive decision :)


Crystal S (CrystalAnn) | 379 comments Triple Threat works for me. I'm off to a doctor appointment, then work. Such a fun day. I can hardly contain myself.


Amanda A (carolinabookworm) | 407 comments I like Triple Threat too.

Now a little about me. There's not really much to tell, though. I live in South Carolina and work full time as an accountant. I am a licensed CPA, but I do not do taxes (except my own and family members that guilt me into doing theirs too). I'm 30, single and have one furbaby who is in my profile pic. She's a Yorkie named Bella and no, not because of Twilight. :-) I have five young nieces and nephews that I spoil rotten at every chance. I also read way too much, according to my family. My other hobbies include camping, spending time with my family and friends, and I have been trying to learn to crochet but I don't have the hang of it yet. I can't wait for the game to start back up again!


♡ Sassy ~ Amy ♡ | 494 comments Triple Threat sounds good to me.


message 34: by Sandra, Winter is Coming ... (new)

Sandra | 12734 comments Triple Threat it is, off to change the header.

Oh and Amanda, crochet is really easy once you get the hang of it. We'll expect updates now on how you're doing :)


message 35: by Steph, Shhhh! I'm Reading! (new)

Steph (Angel4492) | 18046 comments Love the name, ladies!


Nici (queennici102) | 474 comments hi ladies! I am Nici and live in Iowa City, IA. its hard to find others who read the way i do so i am really excited to be on goodreads. still learning my way around. I have two children, five and eight. what else to say? i am always so bad at knowing how to introduce myself. Has anyone here used the goodreads app on the android? I can't wait for the game to start, i am so excited about it!


Nici (queennici102) | 474 comments oh and i like triple threat :)


message 38: by Sandra, Winter is Coming ... (new)

Sandra | 12734 comments Nici, I think Steph has used it. No doubt she'll pop on and say either way soon.


message 39: by Sandra, Winter is Coming ... (new)

Sandra | 12734 comments OK, I've done the right thing and wished all the other teams Good Luck.

Now we just need to kick their butts! Yay!!!

Referring to the GR Android app. Have you used it? You're much more up on those things than me. LOL.


Crystal S (CrystalAnn) | 379 comments I sent everyone friend requests (that I wasn't already friends with). Do not be alarmed! It's just me. :-D

I am ready to win. Let's do this thing.


♡ Sassy ~ Amy ♡ | 494 comments ok... looking at the list, I am in a panic of basics. without the fluff, do i read 5 types of books in a row on the bingo card, or does someone tell me what to read, and we see if we get a bingo?? Uh OH! I am rereading what I have to do so I don't muck this up.


Michelle (Michelle_Mc) | 1376 comments I did the same thing Crystal!
I've noticed that most of you post while I'm in bed, so be warned that it may take me a few hours to reply to anything when the game starts! Saying that it's 4.51am and here I am :) (my little one doesn't sleep right through the night yet).
In regards to the goodreads app - I haven't used it, I do go on goodreads on my phone (usually during the night like now!) but I haven't used the app. If you try it let us know how you like it :)


message 46: by Michelle (last edited Mar 04, 2011 09:03PM) (new)

Michelle (Michelle_Mc) | 1376 comments Quick question to those of you who played before - Are the shelves announced around a certain time or will we be hounding the board looking for it every 5 mins throughout the day?

I don't like the app. It's harder to surf through. I use safari and go through that to goodreads.com. I can organize my searches better if I have the whole webpage. I have it on my iphone and ipad. I take them with me so i can look up ratings and see if I already own the book. I will tell you that I have a certain book i forget I already own and have 4 of the same book... stupid me.

That's not stupid Sassy, I've done it myself! I used to have to carry a notepad with all my books written in it to stop me from doing that prior to having this phone! I do still have hundreds of books to add to my account but it's series or authors that I want to try but I'm trying to get up to date with my current ones before adding them to my physical tbr!
Thanks for your opinion on the app. I use the main site on my phone too, I purposefully ignore the mobile addition link at the top as I don't want to lose any features of the site! I have all my bookmarks set for this thread now I'm getting excited... well I would be if I wasn't yawning my head off! Night all :)

Unfortunately, I did that same thing last weekend and bought a book I already had. That'll learn me to not buy books on special at the big chains.

Regarding when the shelves are announced. From memory Steph usually announces them Sunday mid morning Japan time. But if everyone is finished a shelf she occasionally will announce them on Saturday (of course, in R1 it was a 2 wk turnaround and now its only 1 wk).

Sassy all you have to do is read a book on the shelf that is announced each week. Also sometime over the course of the game you also have to read a Freespace book. R1 people read the Freespace book fairly early on, as the Freespace controls the middle of each Bingo card.

Each team's Bingo card is different, just like in a real game of Bingo so that is why it is a fun game. You never know who will win.
