This is a thread where you can reserve the year published for which you are reading to knock it off.

Please only reserve 3 at a time.

Dee (austhokie) | 2547 comments can we start now?


Lyn (Readinghearts) (lsmeadows) | 2801 comments Mod
Oh, Dee, you crack me up, lol. I love how eager you are. I haven't even thought of starting yet. ;p


message 7: by Dee (new)

Dee (austhokie) | 2547 comments well I have a couple of older years that I also have fit into SRC - so if I claim them now - I can tell myself i don't need to read the books yet ;)


Lyn (Readinghearts) (lsmeadows) | 2801 comments Mod
Man, I wish I was even close to being as organized as you are. :)


message 9: by Dee (new)

Dee (austhokie) | 2547 comments in my defense, the new year (providing we survive tonight ;) ) is in 12 days...that isn't long!

Since it's not that far away, you CAN hang on for a little bit! LOL

As it is, I have concerns that I didn't make it challenging enough! Especially with you & DG reading millions of pages!


message 11: by Dee (new)

Dee (austhokie) | 2547 comments lol - yeah, but I have a bad case of BSN disease and I get distracted on long challenges (in case you haven't noticed!)

Hey, Dee...I think we are OK for surviving the end of the world tonight, because Tien is already on tomorrow and her brain is working overtime....so all must be OK.

Ha ha ha, yes, we are past midday of 21 Dec now - was it supposed to be a particular time?

I could never figure out if the world ended at the end of the 21st, or when the 21st hit

oh, it just clicked that you were asking if you could reserve your years now! Yes, you can reserve -just No reading til 1st :)

Sorry, real busy @work...


message 16: by Bea (new)

Bea | 4406 comments Mod
Since I got an earlier guess as a finisher, do I still get three choices here?


message 17: by Bea (new)

Bea | 4406 comments Mod
Tien, I am anxious to get some planning done...and it will be a busy day (as your has been), so here are my choices.

1965
1966
1970

If I am not allowed all three because of the earlier guess, pick any of them for me. I have books for all three.


message 18: by Susan (new)

Susan | 3405 comments Mod
I thought message 10 said we should wait to reserve anything here.

Can we please have a beginning time that we all know about ahead of time? I assumed by Tien's asking us to wait (in message 10), that meant nothing could be reserved here until Jan 1.


message 19: by Dee (new)

Dee (austhokie) | 2547 comments then she said in 15 that we could reserve years - just not start reading


message 20: by Susan (new)

Susan | 3405 comments Mod
Oh, good. I missed seeing that.
Thanks!


message 21: by Susan (new)

Susan | 3405 comments Mod
I'd like to reserve:
1940
1984
1996


message 22: by Dee (new)

Dee (austhokie) | 2547 comments i'm only going to take 2 for now

1911
1954


message 23: by D.G. (last edited Dec 21, 2012 02:21PM) (new)

D.G. | 1370 comments I'll reserve 2010 for now.

Let's reserve then
1927
1933
1953


message 24: by Susan (new)

Susan | 3405 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 25: by Candiss (new)

Candiss (tantara) This looks like the sort of challenge I can actually not get distracted from! I already know most of the books I'll be reading in 2013, except for a couple of monthly reads in this and another group, due to several year-long challenges I'm undertaking needing fairly fussy planning.

I'd like to start by reserving 3 years for books I know I'll be reading in January, please.

1922
1975
1977


message 26: by Dionisia (new)

Dionisia (therabidreader) | 99 comments I'd love to reserve...

1929
1967
1983

Excited! Plenty of books waiting in the wings in case one (or more?) of these gets bumped off by a S&L finisher.


message 27: by Tien (new)

Tien (tiensblurb) | 8453 comments Mod
@Bea: I'm limiting it up to 3 reserves and since you've got one via S&L finish - I've only reserved 1965 & 1966 for you for now.

Tien (tiensblurb) | 8453 comments Mod
@Dionisia: Jo Ann has knocked off 1967 so I've reserved 1929 & 1983 only for your :)

Let me know if you'd like to reserve another year.


message 31: by Tien (new)

Tien (tiensblurb) | 8453 comments Mod
We've still got Karen & Sam to check in for the S&L finisher but we've still got quite a number of years left (plenty of choices) even after I've reserved all your years plus the Shelves Tower is the more popular one so I've reserved those who've put in their choices to date but I'll wait until either Sam & Karen checked in OR 1st Jan prior to further reservations.

message 46: by Sam (new)

Sam (ecowitch) | 409 comments Thanks D.G, figured they might be some of the harder ones to get done and since I've got relevent books on my shelves, I figured I may as well do my bit :-D


message 47: by D.G. (new)

D.G. | 1370 comments You should pick that 1858 as one of your S&L picks. That way if it's a block, you'll know beforehand!

I finished reading Dracula last month and I was sad when I realized I could have used it for this, LOL!


message 48: by D.G. (new)
