Spreadsheets
Master Spreadsheet

Ashur Spreadsheet

Unofficial Ashur Spreadsheet

Mira 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.

Becca | 1121 comments Hello :)

Cait S | 2825 comments Hi everyone! Looking forward to the new round and working with you all :D

Berit☀️✨ (berittalksbooks) Hello all!!! Do we only use this thread now???


message 8: by Michelle (new)

Michelle | 465 comments Hi team!(:


message 9: by Cait S (new)

Cait S | 2825 comments I think you can use either. I'd imagine it would be easier if you did book planning or new goal announcing here so that we can all help each other out in one spot but it's up to you :)


message 10: by Becca (new)

Becca | 1121 comments Should I post all the goals so we can see them?


message 11: by Berit☀️✨ (new)

Berit☀️✨ (berittalksbooks) I completely agree with you, that seems to be easier than going back and forth between threads, less confusing :-)


message 12: by Holli (new)

Holli | 397 comments Hi all!


message 13: by Cait S (new)

Cait S | 2825 comments Becca, it couldn't hurt. That way we can let the Mira people know which ones we have and who's doing them and maybe one of them can update us on what they have and if someone's working on them.

Cait S | 2825 comments Marie is doing the audiobook one, I think.

message 17: by Berit☀️✨ (new)

Berit☀️✨ (berittalksbooks) Our tasks nobody has claimed yet are read a book with a (: in it, and read a book with a (: In it, no joke :-)


message 18: by Berit☀️✨ (new)

Berit☀️✨ (berittalksbooks) Correction we have another task nobody has claimed, read a book that starts with the letter V


message 19: by Berit☀️✨ (new)

Berit☀️✨ (berittalksbooks) Sorry I keep correcting myself, the (: needs to be in the title, not in the book, that would be a lot easier ;-)

I'll work on one of the books with a colon : in it. I have No Easy Day: The Firsthand Account of the Mission That Killed Osama Bin Laden and need to read it for another challenge. I'm reading/listening to Dracula right now and can start No Easy Day after it. :)

I actually have a couple for the colon challenge, but I have the audio for this one.


message 21: by Michelle (new)

Michelle | 465 comments I can read Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead but I would start it tomorrow:D.


Lisa - (Aussie Girl) | 4961 comments Hi old and new team members.

Will we post our read books here too even if they don't fit a goal at the moment?


message 23: by Berit☀️✨ (new)

Berit☀️✨ (berittalksbooks) Michelle, I just finished the second book in that series, love that series!


Lisa - (Aussie Girl) | 4961 comments Hey, Ezi.. we are finally on a team together. Woo Hoo.

Holli | 397 comments Berit wrote: "Michelle, I just finished the second book in that series, love that series!"

I've read the whole series. Overall, it's quite good and a very interesting concept/spin on the vampire mythos. I'm planning to read the Ultimate Guide Richelle Mead co-wrote sometime soon so I can read the Bloodlines series. Just refresh myself on it.


Lisa - (Aussie Girl) | 4961 comments I love Richelle Mead. I've read all her books although I didn't enjoy Bloodlines as much as Vampire Academy or the Georgie Kincaid series. That was awesome.

Renee (reneeconoulty) | 3309 comments Hi Everyone and welcome to Team Shaka Zulu!

Over on Mira, we worked on a first finished basis for the goals/tasks. Is everyone still happy to work with that here?

It is probably easier to record all our books read here, so we don't have to keep track of so many threads. We can record all the books read for attack points on the original Mira and Ashur spreadsheets. The goal/tasks defense point books can be recorded on whichever sheet they fit.

To help all the captains keep track, when you finish a book can you post

FINISHED
Book title
Page number
Date
Original team - Mira/Ashur
Goal/task if relevant

Remember, any of the books already finished in round one, can't be used for round 2 goals.

Renee (reneeconoulty) | 3309 comments Hi Lisa *waves*
Nice to see a familiar face and a fellow Aussie :)


message 32: by Cait S (new)

Cait S | 2825 comments We basically did the same as far as first finished went. But when a new task was it one or two people would just say what they were reading for it so that we knew it was in progress. It was nice knowing everything was covered but it wasn't set in stone.

Also hi everyone I didn't meet last night!


message 33: by Renee (last edited Aug 16, 2015 04:13AM) (new)

message 34: by Renee (last edited Aug 16, 2015 04:53AM) (new)

Renee (reneeconoulty) | 3309 comments I just searched over a hundred books and found one with "weak at the knees" (Thank god for Calibre and the search function) I have a couple of other books to finish first, but if no one else can find one, I'll take on The Power of the Legendary Greek....

The mere thought of it made her weak at the knees. (Chapter ten)

I don't think I would ever have picked up this book, I don't even remember where it came from.... And the mere thought of reading it...... At least its only 185 pages.


Lisa - (Aussie Girl) | 4961 comments Hiya Renee. Yes great to be team mates again.

Berit☀️✨ (berittalksbooks) Good morning! Wow! There are a lot of us :-) my reading rate should pick up a little, because my kids are back in school, well my younger kids are :-) my oldest is off to college next month :-)


message 41: by Cait S (new)

Cait S | 2825 comments I have another month before my boys go back, Berit. I can't decide if having to wake up earlier again is worth the extra reading time I'll get lol

message 46: by Ezinwanyi (last edited Aug 16, 2015 09:34AM) (new)

Ezinwanyi Chinyere I think the proper phrasing should be "weak IN the knees" and not "weak at the knees".


message 47: by Ezinwanyi (new)

Ezinwanyi Chinyere BTW, hello everyone :D
