Spreadsheets
Master Spreadsheet

Spartacus Spreadsheet

Juba 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.

message 9: by Kimberly (new)

Kimberly (poweki) | 1580 comments I'm reading Amy, My Daughter by Mitch Winehouse which can be used for the 'W' author task, if needed.

It'll take me a few days to read so if it doesn't get used for that goal, that's ok too.

:)

Cathy M. (mccathy77) | 5663 comments Hi new teamies from Juba! Look forward to playing with you :) So who's Hector?

Goal: None

Started book for the lawyer task but it's more than 400 pgs long so if anyone has something shorter, please feel free!

Kelly (ladykatala) | 5020 comments Hello everyone :)

I'm almost done with my vampire book for Team Juba's goal.

Sorry, Sonia wouldn't let me post without her being Achilles :)

I think she stayed up til 2am her time just to make sure it happened.


message 13: by Kelly (new)

Kelly (ladykatala) | 5020 comments Current Juba Goals:
Read a book that has fairies
Read a book that is in the Amazon 2010 bestsellers (http://www.amazon.com/gp/bestsellers/...)
Read a book with the main genre (listed on the first page on GR) as Contemporary


We have someone planning a fairies book already.

I can read Rework soonish.

If anyone finds something that works sooner feel free to overthrow the plans :)


message 14: by Cathy M. (new)

Cathy M. (mccathy77) | 5663 comments Kelly the book I just finished - Long Time Gone - works for the Contemporary tag.

So how is this going to work? If someone from Juba fills one of Spartus' goals, we just add it to the Goal tab only right?


message 15: by Kelly (new)

Kelly (ladykatala) | 5020 comments I think the best plan is to put the attack points on the original teams thread then add the book to the correct goals sheet. We'll just have to be good about marking when books are used.

I'll give Eni access to our spreadsheet.


message 16: by Kelly (new)

Kelly (ladykatala) | 5020 comments I'll go steal it and post a new goal :P


message 17: by Kelly (new)

Kelly (ladykatala) | 5020 comments New Goal: Read a book with a giraffe


message 18: by Kelly (new)

Kelly (ladykatala) | 5020 comments Looks like these are the giraffe books from other teams so far:
The Boy with the Painful Tattoo
Shaking the Sugar Tree
The Glass Castle
The Secret Zoo


message 19: by Cathy M. (new)

Cathy M. (mccathy77) | 5663 comments Just FYI Kelly, I've been helping out Eni with the spreadsheet. It helped when she couldn't log on and especially since I usually finish/read later at night when she's not on.


message 20: by Kelly (new)

Kelly (ladykatala) | 5020 comments Ok. Will add you too.

Starte..."


Cathy Hector is Paris's brother. He tries to kill Achilles but ends up killing his Achilles nephew instead. So Achilles rages and challenges Hector and ends up killing him.
Paris is the one who falls in love with Helen of Greece, and they both run away to his hometown Troy. Which makes the whole Troy-Greece war. This is from the movie Troy :p

Jackie | 1922 comments Checking in. I'm also reading a book by a 'W' author if we need it.

Kelly (ladykatala) | 5020 comments Amanda A finished our short stories goals. So now Juba has these:

Read a book that has fairies
Read a book with a giraffe
Read a book with the phrase "all ears" in a book

I think someone's working on fairies.
I searched around a bit and found How (Not) to Find a Boyfriend

Page 192 "…by now supports the hope that not all news reaches all ears ..."

message 40: by Kelly (new)

Kelly (ladykatala) | 5020 comments Just finished The Bourbon Kings which works for a W author J.R. Ward if you wanted to grab it. Not sure how close Eni or Jackie is on that one.


message 41: by Cathy M. (last edited Aug 16, 2015 09:41PM) (new)

Cathy M. (mccathy77) | 5663 comments We can use yours Kelly since it's done now. We usually use whatever is done first :)

Updated both spreadsheets.


message 42: by Kelly (new)

Kelly (ladykatala) | 5020 comments This is the part where I wish I made the refresh time a bit faster. I didn't want google spreadsheets to start dying though like it's done before.

Well waiting only a few minutes is no big deal :) You did an AMAZING job with these spreadsheets!

Heh, thanks. I'm mostly just glad they're working.

And "oh no!" The ironic goal :P

Rosina | 1638 comments Kelly what did you think of The Bourbon Kings?


message 50: by Kelly (new)

Kelly (ladykatala) | 5020 comments Rosina wrote: "Kelly what did you think of The Bourbon Kings?"

I liked it pretty well. It reminded me a bit more of Nora Roberts than J.R. Wards other books though. Just with more slang.

It was the traditional super rich people with super rich people problems type book.
