Judithe | 6371 comments Just let Steph know out card is OK in the Discussion thread...didn't spot a T13 post yet there (if I missed it, it's because I'm still short on caffeine...trying hard to catch up!)

Also, name suggestions (still a mental blank...more coffee!) and captain volunteers...who will be our brave leader?

(I have to pass on that role due to RL stuff, but am very supportive!)


message 10: by Belinda (new)

Belinda | 801 comments Hi all!!! Newbie here but a keen reader and I'll do my best. Just point me in right direction!!! :D

Vivian (_vivian) | 1934 comments Hi everyone! I'm super excited for another game of Bingo, got in when someone dropped out the first round and been playing ever since. Last time, I found Richelle Mead's Succubus series and it was awesomesauce. Looking forward to finding more fabulous series this time around!


message 13: by Judithe, Soap Operas never end.... (new)

Judithe | 6371 comments Well, while we're waiting for someone to volunteer as captain (or I can just jump in and nominate one you lovely ladies if you'd prefer *wink*) , let's take a look at name nominations. Also, remember you can already pick out your FREE SPACE book (though no reading until the game officially kicks off on Sunday)!

Lucky Thirteen
Thirteen Ways to Win
Groovy Chicks
Supernatural Book Warriors
The Baker's Dozen
Lucky Ladies


message 14: by Judithe, Soap Operas never end.... (new)

Judithe | 6371 comments Also, we are the third team to be "Lucky" Thirteen (no name endorsement, just kind of fun to say). Team 13 has not yet placed in a bingo round, but hopefully we'll be changing that.


You can check out past team name ideas on the name history spreadsheet.


message 15: by JenniferJ (new)

JenniferJ I agree we need to get Team 13 placed! LOL

I have never done it before but if nobody else is able I will volunteer as Captain for this round.


message 16: by Judithe, Soap Operas never end.... (new)

Judithe | 6371 comments And since I'm feeling chatty (and putting off some Bingo updating, LOL!), gonna do the self-intro bit.

I'm Judithe. And I'm a Bingo addict. I love this game. I can never resist coming back for more...no matter how busy & insane RL becomes. (However, I have managed to get my challenge addiction back to more reasonable levels~thanks to BSB!)

My time-zone is Japan-time! Yay! When I'm not being a BSB ninja, I do other Mod stuff around here (fun!). In RL, I'm a teacher (university...which is on summer break for two-plus more glorious weeks! And have an English conversation school, teach one day a week at a nursery school, and translate on the side (Japanese=>English, usually) with some other volunteer work-related stuff on occasion). I love language, and my job most of the time!

I have two kids, almost 18 and 14. My 14, aka Kid Locust...he's at that "age" I wish I'd had~can eat and eat and eat and is still this skinny pole!...has high school entrance exams in just over 5 months. Stress. The older one is set for next year (almost). I'm saying good-bye to being a baseball-mama very soon. Whew. (Will miss, but will be such a time relief!) There's a spouse around, too, but as the housekeeping-division-of-labor war is heating up again, no more mention of him.

Well, next up would be the pet, the price of gasoline and whether that typhoon is possibly going to meander up here. Rather than put you all to sleep, gonna pester some other team or get to my "To-do" list :D.

message 20: by JenniferJ (new)

JenniferJ I am Jen and I'm from South Carolina. Married to my childhood friend and we have two adorable pups and a devilish kitty cat named Lucky.

I work from home as an online marketer processor part-time and rest of the time I am on the road with my hubby and his used tire business.

I have loads of reading time usually but have constant interruptions. Grrr lol I love playing Bingo and am on Goodreads way more than I should be because my TBR list keeps spiking instead of going down!

So whose next? LOL


message 21: by JenniferJ (new)

JenniferJ ahhhh Ninja secrets? Do tell! LOL


message 22: by Judithe, Soap Operas never end.... (new)

And that's ALL I'm sayin'!


message 23: by Judithe, Soap Operas never end.... (new)

Judithe | 6371 comments Free Space Read info...something to distract you from the shelf wait...

The thread is here, Free Space Rules

FREE SPACE Rules


To get free space credit, each team member must pick a book from one of these three options:

** Please keep in mind that all books chosen during the game must be a minimum of 200 pages and graphic novels are not allowed.

(1) An SOS Book of the Month: Any month while the game is in play

OR

(2) A book off of any of the group's new release thread folder or the group's new release thread archive folder: Any book listed on one of the new release threads; no matter the date of release

OR

(3) A book off of the group's bookshelf: Any shelf or tag; No date restriction - books added at anytime may be chosen


Be sure to post on your team's thread: which book you chose for FREE SPACE credit, which of the three options above you used to pick your book, your rating and your review once you've read it.

Once all members of each team have posted the above information, your team will get "a stamp" in the FREE SPACE. :D

Members don't have to pick and read a book right away, they can, but it's not required. This is not a team read, each member chooses their own book TBR for their team's free space credit. You can choose which book to read and when to read it, but no team will get free space credit until all members have read, rated & reviewed a book chosen from one those options.



message 24: by Judithe, Soap Operas never end.... (new)

Judithe | 6371 comments I'm going to read (probably!) A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, #1) by George R.R. Martin for Free Space, off the group's bookshelf (3) because it's the first week...Monday is a national holiday, and I've been meaning to get to this since last fall! (Plus it was on almost every bingo shelf, taunting me, since mid-August!)


message 25: by JenniferJ (new)

JenniferJ 全く忍者秘密今日!


message 26: by JenniferJ (new)

JenniferJ I think everybody has checked in except FlibBityFLooB so far. I sent her a pm just now.


message 27: by Belinda (new)

Belinda | 801 comments So...just checking I have this right....

I'm reading feed next week by Mira grant as part of a buddy read. I can nominate this as my free space book because it fits several of the book shelves: new2me, zombies, etc.


Bit more about me:
I'm married with 2 adorable fur-kids: my doggie girls echo and jade. I'm an emergency nurse which takes up most of my time and I also teach karate. I live about an hour outside Melbourne and may (ahem!) have a (slight) bath and body addiction to go along side my reading addiction :P


message 28: by FlibBityFLooB (new)

FlibBityFLooB | 169 comments Well, hello everyone. I've been out on a business trip this week (and stuck in the hotel room with the stomach flu. EEK!)

So, I'm back to Goodreads for the first time in several days.

Glad to join the team. My first time bingo-ing in SOS (though I've played bingo in another group that was modeled after SOS's bingo). :)

Hope you're feeling better!

I didn't realize it was your first! Welcome!


message 31: by FlibBityFLooB (new)

FlibBityFLooB | 169 comments Thank you for the well-wishes, Judithe. I'm feeling much better and am back on solid-food :) though, my stomach muscles still ache........ :(


message 32: by FlibBityFLooB (new)

FlibBityFLooB | 169 comments For my freebie, I've already decided I will be reading A Sliver of Shadow (found it on the fae bookshelf in SOS shelves).

I picked it up with the intention of reading it a couple weeks back and put it down to read other things instead. So, this will be a good excuse to start it over again and make it through :)


message 33: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 23491 comments Glad you're feeling better Flib, hang in there flu is horrible and to have it away from home *ugh*


message 34: by Steph, Just keep swimming … (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 28233 comments LMAO @ Stealthy Mods ;)

Yuck, Flib ... stomach bugs suck, but away from home with one really sucks! Glad you're on the mend and able to join us!

Happy Reading, Ladies!


message 35: by JenniferJ (new)

JenniferJ Aww I am sorry to hear you were not well FlibBityFLooB but am happy you are able to be back on solids now! Stomach Flu is no fun!

Ladies here are some Team Names we have came up with does anybody have any more to add or is there one here that everybody likes?

Lucky Thirteen
Thirteen Ways to Win
Groovy Chicks
Supernatural Book Warriors
The Baker's Dozen
Lucky Ladies


Also we need to appoint us a captain? Are there any other volunteers? I will be happy to give it a try this round unless one of you want to.


message 36: by Suzanne (new)

Suzanne (esmerelda1) | 950 comments Hello! I'm Suzanne and I'm from Indianapolis. I have a 2 cats, 2 dogs, 2 girls and a husband all stuffed inside a house full of books! I usually read pretty quickly, but I do get interrupted A LOT as well!!

I like Lucky Thirteen or Lucky Ladies, it's kinda hard not to like the lucky names!


message 37: by Suzanne (new)

Suzanne (esmerelda1) | 950 comments Oh and I have absolutely no clue what to read for our free space...


message 38: by Alyssa (last edited Sep 13, 2012 09:14PM) (new)

Alyssa (lyssad87) | 974 comments *sneaks in* Hehehe....

Just thought I should warn all of Judithe's teammates about the whip.... She has one, and if you step out of line, she might bring it out.

You might as well pick a Lucky name. You all probably have a pretty good chance of winning.

Seriously though, I was looking in the Past Winners thread, and Judithe has been on the winning team 3 of the 5 rounds of Bingo. I don't know what it is. Could be the whip, or maybe she's just magic. (I bet it's rigged.) :-P J/k!!!

Love you all! Good luck! :-D


message 39: by JenniferJ (new)

JenniferJ Yea I was kinda leaning towards the plays on Lucky as well because lots think 13 is so "unlucky" LOL

We could even combine the two summin like Thirteen's Lucky Ladies or Thirteen's Lady Luck

I still don't really know what I want as my Free Space either but I am thinking maybe Daughter of Smoke and Bone (Daughter of Smoke and Bone, #1) by Laini Taylor I need to double check to make sure it was on the list again though. It has been on my TBR since it came out I think. Ugh....


message 40: by Judithe, Soap Operas never end.... (new)

Judithe | 6371 comments *Alyssa, SHHH...keeping all that secret...don't wanna jinx anything! And I'm trying to practice restraint with the whip...really...well, sort of.*

BTW, I'm magic. It's that simple. (And it really has surprised the h*ll out of me, too!)


message 41: by Judithe, Soap Operas never end.... (new)

Judithe | 6371 comments Annnnnddddd...it looks as if JenniferJ has volunteered to be our fearless leader, I'm supercool with that! (Everybody chime in, if someone else is interested we could do a co-thing, or online junken~rock-scissors-paper-shoot~)

About the name...been on a "chick" team, and it was a blast, but this time I'm more inclined to go with one of the 13 & luck combos...


message 42: by Belinda (new)

Belinda | 801 comments I think they're goodreads shelves. I can't find the post on how to check bookshelves in SOS. Can someone point me in the right direction so I can check? Ta!!!


message 43: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 23491 comments Belinda if you scroll to the top of the page you'll see, top right - Group Home, Events, Invite People, Bookshelf, Photos, Members, Discussions, etc.

Just scroll up there and click on Bookshelf cause they are all links. (All green writing on GR is a link). That list is on the top right of every screen in the group.


message 44: by JenniferJ (new)

JenniferJ ha I don't know about that fearless part! LOL


message 45: by FlibBityFLooB (new)

FlibBityFLooB | 169 comments Lucky 13's good for me :)

Thanks for volunteering, JenniferJ! :)

And thanks for the well-wishes, ladies. I'm happy that I was able to make it through my presentation on my business trip yesterday. I was very worried. But, I did it *cheers For herself and takes a bow*


message 46: by Vivian (new)

Vivian (_vivian) | 1934 comments Hmm, I thought I posted something yesterday, but it isn't there anymore...

Jen, thanks for volunteering, unless someone else wants to fight you for the captain position, it's all you!

I like Lucky 13's too.

Will repost later when on an actual computer!


message 47: by Belinda (new)

Belinda | 801 comments Ah, thanks Sandra! I tend to be on my mobile with the app a lot so I can't see it.


message 48: by JenniferJ (new)

JenniferJ OK Looks like Lucky 13 has the most votes so I will head on over and get us named. :)


message 49: by JenniferJ (new)

JenniferJ Lucky 13's Reading List

Alrighty ladies, we been named and I edited my first post to hold our reading list. I will keep that post updated with our selections each week. I went ahead and started listing what folks mentioned they may be reading for the free space but if it needs to be changed just holler! :)

Ready for our 1st shelf now. Sitting on go... LOL


message 50: by Belinda (new)

Belinda | 801 comments Thanks Jennifer!! Not long now til we start.

My free space book is listed on SOS bookshelves as 'to-read' is that an ok choice then? I'm thinking I may have to change....
