Sami | 889 comments Me too!

Should we choose a team leader?


message 8: by Vicki (new)

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments I finally found my team!! YAY!!!

Howdy everyone! Glad to be in this group! :) I hope I understand the rules correctly.

My Internet has been giving us problems for a few weeks now, so I'm doing this on my cell so it's frustrating!

Please will someone tell me are we still starting on April 1?


message 9: by Sami (new)

Sami | 889 comments Hi Vicki :) Sorry to hear about your internet! I don't know what I'd do without mine.

I'm not sure about the start date, so I asked about it in the Questions thread, which I think Gisbelle is more likely to check sooner.


message 10: by Vicki (new)

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments Thank you, Sami!


message 11: by Janna (new)

Janna Marie (jannamarie) | 640 comments I'd be willing to be team leader :D


message 12: by Sami (new)

Sami | 889 comments No problem Vicki, and Janna I'm ok with that, if the others are! :)


message 13: by Vicki (new)

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments Go Captain Janna!!!! Fine with me!


message 14: by Gisbelle (new)

Gisbelle | 27299 comments Great Janna! Now that you are the team leader, please make sure you keep your teammates posted when we start the challenge :) If you guys are not sure of anything, please let me know.

Please make sure you check Now Showing... to get the general ideas how the challenge is going to be like.

Don't forget to choose your team leader. I hope each team will have a team leader by Wednesday.

You may need to PM your teammates who haven't posted in the team yet.

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments I've forgotten how the movie fits in. It's SO frustrating with no Internet!

If you're able to click this link it ought to explain everything

Sami | 889 comments Janna, Vicki, do either of you know Ravenclaw Reader? She hasn't responded to my PM and I think she hasn't been online at all in the last week. Then again, that might be normal here...


message 20: by Sami (new)

Sami | 889 comments I tried getting a book for the sample one - the highest I've found after half an hour is one worth 14 points. Please tell me I'm not the only one having this much trouble!


message 21: by Gisbelle (new)

Gisbelle | 27299 comments No worries Sami. If until Wednesday she doesn't show, I'll find a replacement.

Moreover, 14pt is not a low score. From experience, the highest score is 16 (not include hidden words), so I don't think you have a problem.


message 22: by Janna (new)

Janna Marie (jannamarie) | 640 comments No, you're fine Sami! :D 14 is pretty great considering the criteria.

I've seen Ravenclaw Reader around the club before, but I have not heard from her recently. Gisbelle has a back up ready, just in case!


message 23: by Sami (new)

Sami | 889 comments ok that's great :) Seeing as it's a sample and I might as well try posting the points in the correct format too.

Caught Dead in Philadelphia by Gillian Roberts
Read from: N/A (i'm not really reading it)

message 24: by Gisbelle (new)

Gisbelle | 27299 comments well done Sami :)


message 25: by Vicki (new)

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments I'll piggy back!!! Lol


message 26: by Vicki (new)

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments Sami, I don't see how you found all that. I don't see white clothes on the cover. What am I missing?


message 27: by Gisbelle (new)

Gisbelle | 27299 comments A person is wearing white clothes (coat), so it is acceptable.

Thanks Gisbelle :)

message 37: by Sami (new)

Sami | 889 comments Wow Vicki that is a really high score! :D *claps hands*


message 38: by Sami (new)

Sami | 889 comments Gisbelle, Ravenclaw Reader hasn't popped in yet, does that mean we'll have to find a replacement?


message 39: by Gisbelle (last edited Mar 30, 2013 10:01AM) (new)

Gisbelle | 27299 comments let me PM her first. By the Monday, we'll see if we need a replacement. Trisha is kind enough to fill in if we do need one :)


message 40: by Gisbelle (new)

Gisbelle | 27299 comments Based on her GR profile, she hasn't been around since March 16.


message 41: by Sami (new)

Sami | 889 comments Ok :) At least we have a backup person in case we need them. I hope she's ok though..


message 42: by Gisbelle (new)

Gisbelle | 27299 comments She might be busy. Just send her a PM, if I don't get a reply from her by Sunday evening, I'll ask Trisha to fill in :)


message 43: by Sami (new)

Sami | 889 comments ok I've sent her another PM :)


message 44: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new)

Trisha | 31440 comments oh my! LOL! I'll start looking for a book just in case :D


message 45: by Trisha, lives on coffee (last edited Mar 31, 2013 06:44PM) (new)

MC John = 5 points

so it's 11 points

message 47: by Trisha, lives on coffee (last edited Mar 31, 2013 06:45PM) (new)

Trisha | 31440 comments just to make sure I'm ready...am I being shifted onto this team? I just wanted to make sure :D
