Spreadsheets
Master Spreadsheet

Agron Spreadsheet

Saxa Spreadsheet

- Once all columns of a goal have been filled out a new goal will appear within 5 minutes.

- Do not change existing pages. You may add a new page to your spreadsheet if you want to track additional information.

- Mark books as used in your books list once they are used for a goal.

- Only books read during the current round may be applied towards goals, once the round has ended those books may no longer be used for a goal.

- Once you merge teams, you may use your books for your partner teams goals. List them in your books list and on their goals sheet. Mark them as used.

- If you end up with more than 3 open goals, contact a moderator for help.

Book: Empress by Shan Sa by Shan Sa
Page Count: 336
Date Read: 15 August, 2015
Attack Points: .5
Rating: 5
Goal: Read a book about someone who lives in a castle.
This is a historical fiction novel about Emperess Wu of China. She lived in the palace in the Forbidden City.

Amanda (daughterofoak) | 3473 comments Team Saxa's Current goals:

1) Read a book where a character is a ghost
(I am reading a ghost book)
2) Read a book that starts with the letter Y (Margaret is reading a Y book)
3) Read a book with a turtle (I have a turtle book in mind)

We are usually very "first come, first served" with our goals and the first book that fits will go on the spreadsheet.

Sorry for just checking in, lack of sleep forced me into a near coma yesterday. It looks like everyone has all the goals covered so I will just focus on attack points & building up our book bank for future goals. Sound good?

Haha...that is the only part of the movie I remember! I don't know about you guys but he, Gerald Butler, looks awful in all that make-up...lol.


message 13: by [deleted user] (new)

@Laura, I was thinking it might be helpful if we added *tags* to our completed posts. Since we know some of the goals we may get this could come in handy on what to use & maybe what to hold onto.


message 14: by Laura (new)

Laura | 9707 comments Hi Everyone!! Hi Team Saxa!! Wahoo, here we go!

Laura | 9707 comments Team Argon's Current Goals:

Read a book that is in the amazon 2010 bestsellers
https://www.amazon.com/gp/bestsellers... (Margaret)

Read a book first published in May Complete

read a book written by an author who was born in Asia (Jenna)

read a book written by an author who was born in Canada (Laura)

If anyone gets to the Canadian author before me feel free to take it. My library is closed today so I won't be able to get a book to fill this goal until tomorrow.

M , thanks for posting here. I think it will be easier than scrolling back in forth between two threads.

@Amanda are you ok if we post here? (I saw that you were going to post in your own thread.)

All I need is our current format of posting although it would be helpful if everyone else added the author to their completion post as you and M have been doing.

That's fine! I assumed we'd figure it out as we go along. Whatever is easiest for everyone. :)

Do you want editing access to my spreadsheet?
