A place for team introductions & discussions for Team D.

◈ To view and update your books, go here!

◈ Click on view community to see how your team members are doing.

◈ You will need to elect a Team Captain whose duties include: communicating with all
    team members, making sure you have the correct number of members (not too many
    or too few - and they belong on your team), posting weekly status updates/reminders,
    and dealing with minor issues that arise. You may rotate this duty.

◈ If you would like to decide on a Team Name, certainly feel free to do so!

REMINDERS
◈ Books must be over 170 pages in length for this challenge. We will be
    monitoring this closely. Also, no graphic novels, manga, or children's picture books.
◈ Your book must have a start and stop reading date. Some of you may not be used
    to doing this. These dates can be edited in the review screen of each book. Or, if you
    update the current book you are reading from your update screen (upper right),
    it will do the dates automatically.
◈ Remember to tag every book you read to your special bookshelf or
    Team D won't get credit for it!

◈ On January 1st, if you are assigned to Team D , your desired screen will look like this:

Tower1cc_image001_zps45708aa6

◈ Where the red arrows indicate, fill in the fields. Remember to save!

◈ If you have NOT already made a shelf, this will create one for you. If you have already done so through your own bookshelves, be sure to put in exactly what you typed, including the hyphens between words.

@ JanBreesmom. I just finished the Dresden series last year and I really enjoyed all of them.

message 25: by Deedee (new)

Deedee | 572 comments I was about 1/3rd way through
Unholy Night by Seth Grahame-Smith
as Dec. 31 became Jan. 1. Can I use that as my Book #1 of the challenge?

And, I agree, we need a team name. Maybe a name beginning with the letter "D"?


message 26: by Rebecca NJ (new)

Rebecca NJ (njreader) | 1945 comments I've been trying to think of good D words. Dangerous Book Devourers?

And congrats to Marcella for finishing her first (our first) book!

We haven't picked one yet - there are still a good number of people who haven't signed up yet.


message 29: by JenniferJ (new)

JenniferJ | 201 comments My first book is going to be The Abduction of Mary Rose by Joan Hall Hovey

I think that's fine - as long as the majority of it is read after the start.

I've finished my first book of the year - A Pirate's Love. I don't recommend it. Apparently in the 70s, "I'll rape you until you love me" was considered romantic.

Next up on my reading list:
Doubleblind (Sirantha Jax, #3) by Ann Aguirre The Dark and Hollow Places (The Forest of Hands and Teeth, #3) by Carrie Ryan Fantasy Lover (Dark-Hunter, #1) by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Gen (gen454) | 179 comments My first book of the year is Candide ou l'optimisme by Voltaire.

 Marla | 1672 comments I have to apologize, I only read 118 legal books in 2012, but I pledge 100 in 2013. I will start my first book later today and I have to finish another one that won't count.

Glad you found the thread and entered the challenge, Leslie! At 372 book, you are a big hitter for this group. LOL!

Donna, I see you like The Mortal Instruments. I'm thinking of starting that one, as I really liked the first in that author's The Infernal Devices series.

I still have the last one to read, but since I've just read the first 4 quickly, I think I want to read something else first. I just need a change of pace. :)

Carol (peppersgirl) | 113 comments Yeah, go Team D!!! I listened to Beauty Queens by Libba Bray while I cleaned and organized my closets. It was weird but I love Libba Bray sense of humor. I just started Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly and am enjoying it so far. Off to a good start!!!

Rebecca NJ (njreader) | 1945 comments Good morning Team D!

While waiting for a Team Captain, I was looking over things and it seems that we have most of our people signed up on the home page - the following people have not done so:

DeeDee
Diane ~Firefly~
Jessica W
Michelle (GeekGirl)
Sallie(Shuga)

I also peeked at the other groups and here is where we stand:
Team A - 11 books
Team B - 10 books
Team C - 6 books
Team D - 6 books

Thanks to Marcella, Alley, Gayle, Carol and JanBreesmom for starting us off with a good start!

I was going to suggest Dangerous Divas but we do have one gentleman in our group which is why I came up with Dangerous Devourers as in we Dangerously Devour all books :)

I am horrible with names...

I like that one, Rebecca. Dangerous Devourers! You could also do it all with "Dangerously Devouring All Books."
