Cherie (crobins0) | 20275 comments I stole your Orchid book title. I love the pictures on the other books in the series! Not sure I will do the task but I only have two more books to find now. ^_^


message 8: by [deleted user] (last edited Dec 14, 2015 03:54AM) (new)

Glad I could help! That book is free on Amazon for the kindle. I love getting the free books, you can read them then remove or just get rid of it if you don't like it, all without leaving the couch!

message 11: by Cherie (new)

Cherie (crobins0) | 20275 comments Uh, Kelly. You know that you have to read a book for each task (a,b and c) at the site to consider it finished?


message 12: by [deleted user] (last edited Jan 30, 2016 04:43AM) (new)

Message 9 is simply the sites that have all 3 books that will be read, that is what is meant by finished. Just my way of keeping track.

Message 10 simply states for me, that I have 1 book finished toward that site. Also, is there not an extra kudos for reading 1 book at each site Cherie?

I am not reporting to anyone that I have finished the whole site, this is simply my.... book keeping!

Are we not supposed to use the personal thread for our record keeping and use this thread https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/... for reporting?


message 13: by Rusalka, Moderator (new)

Rusalka (rusalkii) | 17564 comments Thanks for explaining, Kelly. Whatever helps you keep track! I was a little confused too, but makes much more sense now, cheers!


message 14: by [deleted user] (new)

Sorry! I honestly did not take into consideration that other people would be looking at this, it never entered my thought process, which only makes sense to me! I never look at things differently or explain them more thoroughly until I am called out on the carpet!


message 15: by Rusalka, Moderator (new)

Rusalka (rusalkii) | 17564 comments No no. It's a bit of both! It's so you can keep track of what you're doing, and where you have been.

But also, it's so we can all crash on your couch and meander through your bookshelves and then pinch ideas off you. We are all very greedy here, but we expect you to be too ;) Pinch away!

Janice (jamasc) | 50023 comments Kelly B wrote: "Also, is there not an extra kudos for reading 1 book at each site Cherie? "

You get extra kudos if you read one site from each continent. But, that's a great idea too - one book from each site. That's badge-worthy considering how many books that would be. Some of our speed readers could do it easily.

This is your personal thread to track your progress in any way you chose. When you go to the official reporting thread to request your badge, you'll be required to report in a specific way so that I can easily understand it.


message 17: by Janice, Moderator (new)

Janice (jamasc) | 50023 comments Kelly - go ahead and track for a book per site. I've officially added it as a special recognition.


message 18: by Cherie (new)

Cherie (crobins0) | 20275 comments Hi Kelly,

Please forgive me for calling you to the office over how you are record keeping your own personal thread. In my defense, can I just say that your Finished comments scared me into believing that you might not have understood the three book rule and I was afraid to ignore it and let you go on without saying something, sooner than later. After I wrote it, I realized that it might have been more unclear with the a,b,c but I couldn't erase it because I was on the mobile app.

On the other hand, it looks like Janice took your question to heart and has created another Special Recognition category because of our comments.

I promise, I will quietly snoop and steal good book ideas like Rusalka said and not stomp around like Sheriff John.

Regards,
Cherie

Oh Cherie, I am not upset or offended in any way. I have been told I can come off snarky, but I never, ever beat around the bush when it comes to someone ticking me off or offending me or anything else. I am a very vocal person and I would have come right out and told you to mind your business or the like. I am sorry if I made you feel uncomfortable. There was no intention of cruelty in any nature.

I appreciate that you took the time to look, read and question. I actually did misinterpret the rules! The whole 1 book per site vs 1 site of each continent. But I guess it all worked out in the end. I have had better luck finding 1 book in the different sites, then 3!

I apologize again Cherie for making you uneasy. Feel free to stomp around as much as you like, but I feel that I don't have much on my shelf that suits many fancies!

I don't care much for the mobile app, you can't delete, reply or add a book link. I use the silk browser if I don't want to fire up the laptop and just want a quick look at what is going on in my groups. I also wish there was a way to add a book automatically to your shelf from the amazon store. I have so many free books on my kindle that never make it to my TBR shelf because I either don't have the time to do it in batches, (or even think about it when I do!) or I don't want to do it as I go. A button to press that says "Add to my goodreads shelf" before you do the download would be awesome!

Anyway, I have ranted on long enough. I apologize again Cherie, I do not want you to think ill of me, or be too nervous to make comments.

Cherie (crobins0) | 20275 comments Oh, Kelly, I am so relieved! I guess it was a WIN, WIN for us at the end.

I agree, I am finding it hard to find three books for all of the sites too. Most of the "take home tasks" appeal to me more than the locations or settings for many of the sites.

I found book titles for my Australia tasks but I am not 100% confident that I can get my hands on them all. I also had an added enticement for the Australia books because I signed up for an Aussie challenge.

Again - I am so glad that you were not upset and we could help each other out. :0)

If you have a kindle, I have a shelf of free kindle books that you can look through. Only a few were daily freebees, I am always downloading, reading then removing books from my kindle. I rarely by books unless it is a favorite.

They do sound great, Blood Orchids is free, Breakthrough was a daily freebee for Kindle. Glad I could help.


message 25: by Janice, Moderator (new)

Janice (jamasc) | 50023 comments I picked up Blood Orchids a while back. I hope it's a good as it appears.


message 26: by Cherie (new)

Cherie (crobins0) | 20275 comments I have a Nook tablet that has the Kindle app loaded. I try to pick up freebies too. Barnes & Noble has a free book every Friday. My daughter usually looks over the free Kindle books and my app is linked to her account. She has been on a non-fiction agenda lately and her taste there does not appeal much to me.
