Dawn (Kat N Hat) (KatNHat) | 506 comments Reserved for team updates


message 19: by Elishia (new)

Elishia | 2598 comments I like all of the names so i'll go with the majority.


message 20: by Catherine (new)

Catherine | 725 comments well..I'm for Seven Wonders...I love Fleetwood Mac


message 21: by Dawn (Kat N Hat) (new)

Dawn (Kat N Hat) (KatNHat) | 506 comments Ok, so by my calculations it will be 4 am here when the song is posted. Yikes! I will not be up checking to see what it is at that time but I will comment on it tomorrow morning after I've had some coffee.


I guess well wait for Karen L. to check back in for a team name. I could be ok with any of the 3 but I think I like Knockin' on Sevens Door the best. I see a 3 way tie happening here.


message 22: by Elishia (new)

Elishia | 2598 comments Lol I wouldn't wait up either at that time luckily it will be around 9/10 am here so I can have a look.

ha ha it looks like Karen L may have the deciding vote unless she likes something completely different.


message 23: by Rosina (new)

Rosina Just popping in to say hi!

Dawn is awesome you guys will do great under her guidance.
I know my vote doesnt count but i like Knockin on Sevens Door

Good luck


message 24: by Elishia (new)

Elishia | 2598 comments Hi and thanks Zina


message 25: by Dawn (Kat N Hat) (last edited Sep 05, 2012 05:57AM) (new)

Dawn (Kat N Hat) (KatNHat) | 506 comments Hey Zina!

The song is up it is ♬ "Roxanne" - The Police (1978).

I am off to look up lyrics to see if I can come up with anything to match to my current stack of library books.

ETA: Here are the lyrics if anyone else needs them.

"Roxanne"


Roxanne
You don't have to put on the red light
Those days are over
You don't have to sell your body to the night

Roxanne
You don't have to wear that dress tonight
Walk the streets for money
You don't care if it's wrong or if it's right

Roxanne
You don't have to put on the red light

I loved you since I knew you
I wouldn't talk down to you
I have to tell you just how I feel
I won't share you with another boy
I know my mind is made up
So put away your make up
Told you once I won't tell you again
It's a bad way

Roxanne
You don't have to put on the red light
Roxanne
You don't have to put on the red light


message 26: by Dawn (Kat N Hat) (new)

Dawn (Kat N Hat) (KatNHat) | 506 comments CaroB would you take a red cover as a tie in to "You don't have to put on the red light"?


message 27: by CaroB (last edited Sep 05, 2012 06:14AM) (new)

CaroB (CarobSimms) | 5559 comments Good thinking outside the square!

I would take a red light on the cover. So, originating from a light source, rather than just being all over red.


message 28: by Dawn (Kat N Hat) (new)

Dawn (Kat N Hat) (KatNHat) | 506 comments Well I guess it doesn't matter. The male lead in my red cover book is an undercover cop. so thay ties to the police.

I will be reading The Mane Attraction (Pride, #3) by Shelly Laurenston.


message 29: by Elishia (new)

Elishia | 2598 comments I've picked Something About You one of the characters is an FBI agent. I was looking for over an hour I didn't even think about looking through the lyrics.


message 30: by CaroB (new)

CaroB (CarobSimms) | 5559 comments loved that series, Dawn. Made me laugh out loud at times. Luckily not in public!


message 31: by Karen L (last edited Sep 05, 2012 10:12AM) (new)

Karen L (goodreadscomkarenl) | 310 comments Ok, I like the song title "Knockin' on Sevens Door" as the group title and I will be reading Blood in the Water by Jane Haddam which is a book in the Gregory Demarkian, ex-FBI agent, series.

Blood in the Water by Jane Haddam

I just started it last month & I am really liking it too!

Ok, two votes for Knockin' on Sevens Door and one vote for Seven Wonders, and one vote for the majority.... It seems a bit odd that the majority is two people.

Unless there are objections I will update the team name tonight.


message 33: by Elishia (new)

Elishia | 2598 comments Ha ha I know. No that's fine with me.


message 34: by Catherine (new)

Catherine | 725 comments sorry...haven't been here to post anything....will find something tonight! :)


message 35: by Catherine (new)

Catherine | 725 comments want to ask...The Red Queen.is about the War of the Roses..is that close enough or should I read something more along what you are reading? it has Red in the title, and has a red cover...
let me know so I can find something else if I need to :)


message 36: by Elishia (new)

Elishia | 2598 comments Hi Catherine i'm not 100% but don't think we can use red covers, unless there is a red light on it. CaroB gave some examples we can use I'll post them here for you.


message 37: by Elishia (new)

Elishia | 2598 comments Possible links:
♩Author or character name Roxanne or Roxie.
♩One of the main characters is currently or used to work in the "Adult" industry.
♩Any book set in or published in the 70s.
♩One of the characters works for the Police or military or an active government agency.


message 38: by Dawn (Kat N Hat) (new)

Dawn (Kat N Hat) (KatNHat) | 506 comments I looked at the book and did some Police research, the only thing I could find that tied them together was the story is set in England and the band is from England. I don't know if that is enough. Sorry Catherine.

Susan (susayq ~) (susayq) | 6062 comments Catherine, I'm sure CaroB will be by as soon as she wakes up and will be able to give you a "yes" or "no" on whether that book would work :)


message 40: by Catherine (new)

Catherine | 725 comments thanks..well...hopefully she will wake up soon!

can we give her a wake-up call!?!?!?! lol

Lisa Kay (LisaKayAliceMaria) | 20795 comments Dawn & CaroB, I've heard the Pride series is good. I'll have to squeeze them in some day.


message 42: by CaroB (last edited Sep 05, 2012 02:39PM) (new)

CaroB (CarobSimms) | 5559 comments Catherine - Is it this one: The Red Queen (The Cousins' War, #2) by Philippa Gregory.

Although the red cover doesn't have an obvious light source, on closer inspection, it's got some little red light-looking things along the top of the cover, so I'll pay that.


message 43: by Dawn (Kat N Hat) (new)

Dawn (Kat N Hat) (KatNHat) | 506 comments Yay!


message 44: by Lisa Kay, Moderator (new)

Lisa Kay (LisaKayAliceMaria) | 20795 comments That's what I was thinking, CaroB. Could be lights.


message 45: by Susan (susayq ~), Moderator (new)

Susan (susayq ~) (susayq) | 6062 comments I'm glad that worked out, Catherine! I look forward to seeing what you have to say about it. I have that series on my bookshelf.


message 46: by Catherine (new)

Catherine | 725 comments thanks! YAY!!! well..I like Philippa Gregory...I have a couple of her series' on my list!


message 47: by CaroB (new)

CaroB (CarobSimms) | 5559 comments LOL, so glad you guys can't give me a wake-up call!! I need all the beauty sleep I can get, lol!


message 48: by CaroB (new)

CaroB (CarobSimms) | 5559 comments I've updated your dance card in Post #2.

Have to say, Dawn, I'm loving the way you've set out the team's progress in Post #17... there's a scavenger hunt game I think I may have to steal that for, lol!
