message 8: by Barbara ★ (new)

Barbara ★ Hi Meghan good to see you. I can't wait to start playing again.


message 9: by Steph Ann (new)

Steph Ann | 1163 comments Hi, team! This is my second time playing BSB, and I'm super excited to get started again!

Some info about me, I'm a research assistant from Bloomington, IL, which basically just means I spend my days proofreading research articles and occasionally grant proposals, and then I go home and read some PNR/UF, which is much more exciting reading! :)

I'm ready for the weekend to get here to see what the first shelf will be!


message 10: by Dawn (Kat N Hat) (new)

Dawn (Kat N Hat) (katnhat) | 473 comments Hi all. Super excited to start this. I know some of you all from other groups.

I don't particularly want to be captain.

I am currently sitting in a Girl Scout planning meeting and couldn't help checking in... that is a real addiction right.

I am a stay at home mom, in Colorado. I am on periodically through out the day most days.

I will ponder names this afternoon and post some ideas tonight.


message 11: by Steph Ann (new)

Steph Ann | 1163 comments I'm awful at coming up with names, but here's what I've got so far...

Notorious Nines
Novel Nines
Nubile Nines

I'm not married to any of these ideas, so it won't hurt my feelings if nobody likes them!

Also, I'm willing to try my hand at being captain if no one else is dying to do it. If someone else really wants it though, that's fine too. I'm flexible. :)


message 12: by Barbara ★ (new)

Barbara ★ I have no interest in being captain as I'm too busy reading. lol

I live in New Jersey and manage a warehouse but we're very unbusy and I spend most of the day reading so I can spend most of the night updating challenges.

Nine Inch Nails
Nine By Design
Nine Chapters
Nine Muses


message 13: by ★Meghan★ (last edited Sep 12, 2012 06:00PM) (new)

★Meghan★ (starinheaven) | 541 comments This is my 3rd round playing.

I live in Colorado Springs, CO, but work in a tortilla factory on the graveyard shift and really busy. I usually do most of my reading on my down days and on the slow days at work (as in nothing breaks down and I can actually make time to read).

Some names:

Parnormal:
Paranormal Fiends
Imaginary Boyfriends Anonymous
Vampire Bait
Girly Green Goblins

Number:
Silly Asa9 Assassins (or AsaNINE)

Non-Paranormal:
Book-Noser (as in Brown Noser but ours our in a book)

I also would not mind being captain. I still check in frequently when I am awake. And smart phones are a wonderous thing. I guess we will see if Zanahoria(Taly) would really like it.


message 14: by Dawn (Kat N Hat) (new)

Dawn (Kat N Hat) (katnhat) | 473 comments LOL I kinda like Asa9 Assassins.

Here is my contribution

Common sayings:
Cloud Nine
nine times out of ten
Nine Lives
The whole Nine Yards
Dressed to the nines
A stitch in time saves nine

Puns on those sayings:
A book in time saves nine
Read to the nines
Cloud nine readers

Dawn (Kat N Hat) (katnhat) | 473 comments Megan we are almost neighbors. I am just North of Denver.


message 16: by ★Meghan★ (new)

★Meghan★ (starinheaven) | 541 comments I was trying to think of words with NINE in it. It Ed the only one I could think of


message 17: by Steph Ann (new)

Steph Ann | 1163 comments I also like Asa9 Assassins. It made me smile when I saw it. :)

I'm also a fan of Nine Lives and Cloud Nine Readers.


message 18: by Mandy (last edited Sep 13, 2012 10:28AM) (new)

Mandy (thereadingdiaries) | 195 comments Hi I'm new this is my first time playing. I'm so excited to play! I didn't see this was up or I would of joined the conversation sooner.

I'm a stay at home mom too, but I don't want to be Captain since this is my first time. I'm also in Northern California.

So many choices I don't know how to pick one. I've been on a paranormal kick if that helps but I like some of the Nine ones too. So I'm happy with any of them.


message 19: by Steph Ann (new)

Steph Ann | 1163 comments Hi, Mandy! I'm sure you'll have a great time playing! Round 5 was my first round, and I had a blast! Be prepared for your TBR list to grow as you read everyone's reviews! That definitely happened for me! :)


message 20: by Steph Ann (new)

Steph Ann | 1163 comments Also, Meghan, I'm fine with you being captain if everyone else is on board with that. :)


message 21: by Mandy (new)

Mandy (thereadingdiaries) | 195 comments I'm fine with Meghan being the captain too.

I'm looking forward to reading reviews so many exciting books lot's I've not even heard of.

Steph Ann | 1163 comments Mandy wrote: "I'm looking forward to reading reviews so many exciting books lot's I've not even heard of."

You'd think with almost 600 books on my TBR list at this point that I'd be running out of stuff to add to it, but no, I keep finding new stuff I haven't heard of before. It sometimes makes it very overwhelming to figure out what to read next! :)


message 23: by Mandy (new)

Mandy (thereadingdiaries) | 195 comments I don't know how to quote people like you do yet Steph Ann but isn't it half the fun having so many interesting choices?


message 24: by Steph Ann (new)

Steph Ann | 1163 comments Mandy wrote: "I don't know how to quote people like you do yet Steph Ann but isn't it half the fun having so many interesting choices?"

Oh, it's definitely fun to have so many choices, plus it's nice to know I won't run out of things to read anytime soon, lol. :)

To quote someone, if you click on "reply" at the bottom of their post, it'll bring up at least part of their post into the comment box. If it doesn't bring up everything you want to quote, you can type it in to complete it. Hopefully that makes sense. I sometimes tend to confuse people when I try to explain things. :)


message 25: by ★Meghan★ (new)

★Meghan★ (starinheaven) | 541 comments Makes sense to me Steph Ann. And I think you all may not have seen my TBR/wishlist...it is a little excessively huge. Haha...and it keeps growing. I always think that there is no way that I could keep adding more and every time, it keeps getting bigger.


message 26: by Steph Ann (new)

Steph Ann | 1163 comments Lol, Meghan, I just checked out your TBR list and 600 doesn't seem like quite that much anymore! I'm sure I'll make it to your level eventually though. :)


message 27: by Barbara ★ (new)

Barbara ★ I'm good with Meghan being captain too.
I like Cloud Nine Readers.


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

Dawn (Kat N Hat) (katnhat) | 473 comments Has anyone tried to contact Zanahoria (Taly)?


message 29: by ★Meghan★ (last edited Sep 14, 2012 08:34AM) (new)

★Meghan★ (starinheaven) | 541 comments Not yet I will send her a message in the morning.

ETA: I just sent Zanahoria (Taly) a message. Hopefully she will pop in soon.


message 30: by Steph Ann (new)

Steph Ann | 1163 comments Everyone excited for the first shelf to be called this weekend? :)


message 31: by Daffodil (new)

Daffodil (daffodil--ripcranberry) | 2098 comments I'm just dropping by to check out the competition. LOL.

I really came to wish my old teammate Steph Ann good luck!


message 32: by Steph Ann (new)

Steph Ann | 1163 comments Thanks, Daffodil! Good luck to you too! I'm sure you're going to miss all my quotes, lol. :)


message 33: by ★Meghan★ (last edited Sep 14, 2012 08:54AM) (new)

★Meghan★ (starinheaven) | 541 comments I am super excited for the first shelf to be called. Has anyone looked for a book for their free space. I lined up Unholy Ghosts (Downside Ghosts, #1) by Stacia Kane from the group bookshelf. That way I can dive in as soon as midnight Japan time hits.

*Remembers I should probably catch up in my other Bingo game. Scuttles off to finish some of my other books currently reading.*


message 34: by Dawn (Kat N Hat) (new)

Dawn (Kat N Hat) (katnhat) | 473 comments I have my free space read lined up too. I need to read The Mane Squeeze (Pride, #4) by Shelly Laurenston for two other challenges this week and I have put it off so I can start it tomorrow and be able to count it.


message 35: by ★Meghan★ (last edited Sep 14, 2012 02:52PM) (new)

★Meghan★ (starinheaven) | 541 comments From what I can see we are kind of between two names.

Cloud Nine Readers ***Vote: 1

OR

Asa9 Assasins ***Vote: 1

Think we should put it to a vote?


message 36: by Steph Ann (new)

Steph Ann | 1163 comments Since I really like both names (indecisive should probably be my middle name, not Ann), I flipped a coin to decide my vote (yes, I'm a dork). Looks like my vote is going toward Cloud Nine Readers. :)


message 37: by Steph Ann (new)

Steph Ann | 1163 comments And for my free space read, I'm going to read Chasing Magic (Downside Ghosts, #5) by Stacia Kane from the group bookshelf.


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

Dawn (Kat N Hat) (katnhat) | 473 comments I vote for Asa9 Assasins.


message 39: by ★Meghan★ (new)

★Meghan★ (starinheaven) | 541 comments Where did you get your free space from Dawn? New Release Thread or Group Bookshelf.


message 40: by Barbara ★ (new)

Barbara ★ I have a real problem being called assanine anything. just sounds like we're a bunch of dumb broads.

Sorry Group bookshelf.

LOL, I thought it was punny. I imagined us all drapped in black running around haphazard smacking the bad guys down with a stack of books.


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

Dawn (Kat N Hat) (katnhat) | 473 comments Cloud Nine Readers was my second choice from the list so I am ok with that too.


message 44: by Barbara ★ (new)

Barbara ★ how about cloud nine assassins?


message 45: by Mandy (new)

Mandy (thereadingdiaries) | 195 comments Barbara ★ wrote: "how about cloud nine assassins?"

I was just thinking of saying something when you posted this.


message 46: by Dawn (Kat N Hat) (new)

Dawn (Kat N Hat) (katnhat) | 473 comments Barbara ★ wrote: "how about cloud nine assassins?"

LOL, and now I imagine us all with wings on our clouds with snipper rifles assasinating the bad guys.... I like it.


message 47: by Steph Ann (new)

Steph Ann | 1163 comments I'd be good with cloud nine assassins!

Dawn, I do love the image of us trying to smack the bad guys with books. :)

I'm wishing I were more artistic cuz I think this image is just begging to become some sort of team banner for us, lol :)


message 49: by Mandy (new)

Mandy (thereadingdiaries) | 195 comments Ok so since this is my first time let's say the shelf is "Vampire" for the week. Do the books have to be on the group shelf or just have vampires? Let's say I have a book that's not on the group book shelf under vampires would that mean it doesn't count even though it is about vampires?

Steph will post a link to a specific shelf. Your book has to be somewhere on that shelf. Most shelves have over hundred pages.

The group bookshelf is just oneof the places you can look for the free space.

If you want ton know if one of your books is on a shelf go here
then search for the specific shelf. Be careful though Vampires is not the same as Vampire, spelling counts.
