message 6: by Madelyn (new)

Madelyn Rose | 448 comments I think to start getting organized. Maybe make a chart and plan out some ideas?


message 7: by Amy (new)

Amy | 2561 comments Hi Madelyn. :)

Do either of you have planned reads for March?


message 8: by Madelyn (new)

Madelyn Rose | 448 comments But does anyone have any ideas to stay organized? We have about a week to set up.

message 11: by Madelyn (new)

Madelyn Rose | 448 comments Oh! I can also make a Google Sheets template and post the link for you guys.


message 12: by Madelyn (new)

Madelyn Rose | 448 comments I just want to check in with the other members in the group who haven't checked in.

Destiny & Brooke- I just wanted to check in with you guys...

A question for everyone- Do you have any books that you want to read or request?


message 13: by Amy (new)

Amy | 2561 comments I've set up a spreadsheet for us all to use which you can find and edit here - https://onedrive.live.com/redir?resid...

I know that Brooke is really active so I wouldn't worry to much, they technically have until towards the end of the month to check in. I'm sure they are just on different time zones or something. :)

Yeah. I am not too worried anyway. I am just super excited to get going! (And you may want to let me know if I am being annoying. I know that can happen!)


message 16: by Amy (new)

Amy | 2561 comments Not annoying at all. Sometimes I worry that I'm being annoying by taking over, haha!

If anyone hates the spreadsheet idea let me know and I can just update it for you as we go along. :)

Okay, so you have got a lot of options! I don't know if you saw the document if you want to write in what you are reading. But, you don't have to.

Madelyn Rose | 448 comments Does anyone have any new updates/ideas?


message 31: by Amy (last edited Feb 24, 2016 02:20AM) (new)

Amy | 2561 comments I've organised a few more of my reads. I'm taking over some letters at the moment (I,D), if anyone wants to swap or something let me know although all of those have buddy reads so it would be good to keep them. It seems all the books I have aren't that diverse when it comes to first letters.


message 32: by Brooke (new)

Brooke ♥booklife4life♥ (booklife4life) | 4553 comments I took Monday off from work (i work overnight) so i can start right at midnight and knock out some books *hopefully*


message 33: by Gayatri (new)

Gayatri | 994 comments Sup guys. I am not a big planner, I basically just read things as I go. I don't know if i will be able to read all that much in this month because I have a lot of work. But, I will read a lot. Don't worry it about.
Thanks for the spreadsheet. :)

That's awesome! I have Tuesday off, but every day I will try to read as much as I can!


message 37: by Brooke (new)

Brooke ♥booklife4life♥ (booklife4life) | 4553 comments we lost Gayatri but gained another, thou idk if they have seen the comment on the main thread yet.

Hopefully Destiny shows up tomorrow, if not, i'll message her :D

I did read that the other day but I wasn't sure. I was actually wondering about when/if Destiny would show up.

And luckily, I got a plan to wake up at midnight and read!


message 39: by Amy (new)

Amy | 2561 comments Just to let you guys know I will be starting the month off with Moriarty I think it's important we let each other know what we are reading as we don't want to overlap letters :)

I hope the others check in soon, at this rate it'll just be the three of us.


message 40: by Madelyn (new)

Madelyn Rose | 448 comments Great! I know I was just thinking that...

I am starting off with reading All the Bright Places :) Good luck to everyone! I know everyone is most likely in different time zones, and we be started before but good luck!!


message 41: by Cinthia (new)

Cinthia | 5702 comments Hi Everyone... I was just assigned to this group.. I am a little nervous to be in a serious group so I hope I don't disappoint.... :)


message 42: by Madelyn (new)

Madelyn Rose | 448 comments Hey Cinthia! So nice to talk to you! I am sure you will do fine! This is my first challenge, so I don't know what to expect!! But I am glad to get the challenge started with everyone!!


message 43: by Cinthia (new)

Cinthia | 5702 comments I still have 6 hours before midnight hits here so I will start making a game plan...

1st. The Queen of the Tearling (The Queen of the Tearling, #1) by Erika Johansen
2nd. Paris Time Capsule by Ella Carey
3rd. Snow Like Ashes (Snow Like Ashes, #1) by Sara Raasch
5th. Beastly by Alex Flinn
7th. Wicked Lovely (Wicked Lovely, #1) by Melissa Marr
9th. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer (Mara Dyer, #1) by Michelle Hodkin
10th. The Kiss of Deception (The Remnant Chronicles, #1) by Mary E. Pearson
12th. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë
13th. Immurement (The Undergrounders, #1) by Norma Hinkens
14th. Under the Never Sky (Under the Never Sky, #1) by Veronica Rossi
16th. Glass Sword (Red Queen, #2) by Victoria Aveyard
18th. Illuminae (The Illuminae Files, #1) by Amie Kaufman
21st. Carry On by Rainbow Rowell
23rd. Zone One by Colson Whitehead
29th. With This Heart by R.S. Grey

I also want to read An Ember in the Ashes (An Ember in the Ashes, #1) by Sabaa Tahir
the BR is set for the 15th but I might not be able to get it before then... if I do I will add it if not sometime towards the end of the month... I think it still counts if you read the BR within the month even if you don't start it on the exact date it is scheduled for...

I will also probably have others in between because I love audiobooks and listen to them on my work commute...


message 44: by Madelyn (new)

Madelyn Rose | 448 comments I love audiobooks as well! I have about two hours until midnight and am pumped! Just trying to finish my book I get on a clean start. I don't know if you saw the document earlier, but it could be helpful :)


message 45: by Cinthia (new)

Cinthia | 5702 comments Oh. I see what you're talking about. That looks very well planned. I will look into it tomorrow. I need to go to work in the morning. So I'll look at it in the afternoon and plug mine in if that's ok.


message 46: by Gayatri (new)

Gayatri | 994 comments Sorry I left you guys :) I didn't think I was going to be able to cope. Good luck guys and hope you guys rock this month :P


message 47: by Madelyn (new)

Madelyn Rose | 448 comments Awesome Cinthia! And thanks for the luck Gayatri!


message 48: by Cinthia (new)

Cinthia | 5702 comments Quick question. On the rules it says each letter can only be used the same amount of times it appears on the tiles. Is that for each member of the team or for the team altogether. Example. If someone reads a book with Q which is only there one time does that mean nobody else in the team should use the same letter? If so I may need to look over at the books selection.


message 49: by Madelyn (new)

Madelyn Rose | 448 comments The letters (Q, as you said, for example) can only be used the number of times they are shown in the board. Like you said, only one "Q" book could be read to get the full points, but there are the blank tiles as well.


message 50: by Cinthia (new)

Cinthia | 5702 comments I'll just start snow like ashes to be on the safe side then :)
