Please submit 5 guesses each (from the Shelves & Freedom Towers).

If you hit a 'false' block, then it will be knocked off straight away and no one will have to read for that block.

If you hit a 'true' block, then you yourselves (the guesser) will have to read to knock off this particular block.

Finishers:
1 Vi with 12 books read
2 D.G. ~Shameless Hussy~ with 16 books read
3 Susan with 17 books read
4 Amanda with 16 books read
5 Coralie with 27 books read
6 Karen with 25 books read

7 Sam with 20 books read
8 Amy with 25 books read
9 LynnB with 26 books read
10 Tien with 34 books read
11 Jo Ann with 39 books read
12 Bea with 34 books read

Yes & Yes, DG, LOL!

Shelves Tower
historical-romance - True
young-adult - True
urban-fantasy - False
mystery - True

Freedom Tower
2012 - True

I'll reserve "2012" in the Freedom Tower (Planning) thread once I set that up.

Lyn M is taking care of the Shelves Tower one so she'll reserve the 3 shelves for you to read.

Silly me to have left my worksheet at work! Won't have answers for you guys till Monday, Susan & Amy. Sorry!

Susan | 3451 comments Mod
There may be a conflict between people posting here and people posting on http://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/1...

It looks like DG and Amy both asked for the year 2010.


message 21: by Dee (new)

Dee (austhokie) | 2587 comments I'm guessing that these ones should get priority because they are for winners - whereas the other is just us reserving books

Thank you, Dee, that is indeed thought :)

Dee (austhokie) | 2587 comments but I will come and tackle anyone if they try to steal the years I claimed!

No problem. I have the books in my January pile just in case. But we don't know what January's shelf will be yet, so lots of things can change in the next 10 days anyway.

D.G. | 1370 comments Dee wrote: "I'm guessing that these ones should get priority because they are for winners - whereas the other is just us reserving books"

Makes sense. :)

So I guess we shouldn't reserve any years until all the winners do their picks?


message 27: by Tien (new)

Tien (tiensblurb) | 8678 comments Mod
That would probably save some confusion, DG.

Or, since some of us already did post on the other thread, we can say that anyone who posts here can take a year away from any of us there, and we'd just get to pick a replacement if that happened.

Susan and Amy - I am going to mark you off for those shelves on the Shelves Tower planning thread. That way you will have them reserved and if we find they are misses, I will make a note later.

That is what I am asking everyone to do on the Shelves and Scripts Tower planning threads.


Lyn (Readinghearts) (lsmeadows) | 2827 comments Mod
So - The Scripts Tower is feeling very left out, lol. :)


message 35: by Dee (new)

Dee (austhokie) | 2587 comments Tien's book said shelves and freedom only - which could be why scripts is feeling left out

OK, I totally missed that, lol. See what happens when I try to speed read. :}

Amy will have to read 2010 for Freedom Tower but the 2010 (shelf) for the Shelves Tower is knocked off.


message 44: by Susan (new)

Susan | 3451 comments Mod
I'm glad we've finally hit a bunch of "false"s. It'll be so disappointing to read a book and then have it be a miss (and to know we could've counted it somewhere else if only we'd known). The more we can discover now, the better.

Did I read these instructions wrong, or did Karen? I thought each person got five choices, from either Shelves Tower and/or Freedom Tower. Did it mean we each get five choices from each tower?
