message 32: by [deleted user] (new)

FOLLOWING LETTERS HAVE BEEN FILLED:

C M Q W


message 33: by Rebecca (new)

Rebecca (longy207) | 1599 comments I'm going to have to make a change for my M book as Mile High by Rebecca Chance is due back to the library on the 11th so I'll be reading that instead of Mist (Mist, #1) by Kathryn James

Sorry


message 34: by [deleted user] (new)

Thats fine haha. How come you deleted your review post?


message 35: by Rebecca (new)

Rebecca (longy207) | 1599 comments I didn't know I did :/ I'll just put it up again?


message 36: by [deleted user] (new)

Because I was looking on the reviews and it wasnt there


message 37: by Rebecca (new)

Rebecca (longy207) | 1599 comments I've just seen that too- I'm just posting it again now- although Abby has already given us the point


message 38: by [deleted user] (new)

Forget about clearing the board now I think we should just aim for the high point letters


message 39: by Rebecca (new)

Rebecca (longy207) | 1599 comments can I just stick to my plan for the minute


message 40: by [deleted user] (new)

Yeah of course. What you reading?


message 41: by Rebecca (new)

Rebecca (longy207) | 1599 comments A, G, 6 x E's, B, D, H, M, Q, 2 x T


message 42: by Katherine (new)

Katherine right now I'm almost finished with The Phantom of the Opera so that can be for P right?


message 43: by Katherine (new)

Katherine and how do you add the little pictures of books?


message 44: by [deleted user] (new)

@Katherine Yep thats awesome! To add a book cover/link theres an option on top of the comments box that says 'add book or authors' click on that blue link. Once you do a box will come up and you can search the book you want to add.

To add the little picture of the book:
Search the book in the search box and if you want to add another cover of the book (or another edition) click add edition and find the edition of the book you want to add.
There are two options at the bottom of the box (link and cover) Click on the cover option and click add next to the book you have searched.

Hope this helps. It only works on browser, not on the mobile apps.


message 45: by [deleted user] (new)

@Rebecca You got it all planned so thats awesome. Good going


message 46: by Katherine (new)

Katherine thank you!


message 47: by [deleted user] (last edited Mar 07, 2016 07:27AM) (new)

I just realised that the books I put under 'T' all begin with "The" so I've put The girl on the train under G so we get more points for G.

There are two other books too. Shall I change them too?


message 48: by Rebecca (new)

Rebecca (longy207) | 1599 comments My 2 'T' books won't matter because ones 'I' and the other 'S' which are both just 1 point anyway


message 49: by [deleted user] (new)

Oh yeah then it should be alright.


message 50: by [deleted user] (new)

Currently reading Another little Piece for A. Finish that off today then gonna start The Year I met you for Y. Got it today from library. :)
