Mandiann (goodreadscommandiann) | 7529 comments Can someone pm charles with a lonk to the thread?


message 14: by Delitealex (new)

Delitealex | 3170 comments Anyone have any team name ideas?


message 15: by Mandiann (new)

Mandiann (goodreadscommandiann) | 7529 comments hmmm. I am terrible with names.

Just verifying the movies sent to me fit the criteria and finding one of my own. Will submit to Gisbelle very shortly. Did anyone get a chance to PM Charles or should I?


message 16: by Delitealex (new)

Delitealex | 3170 comments I'll do it


message 17: by Delitealex (new)

Delitealex | 3170 comments I don't see how to pm him he has an author page.


message 18: by Mandiann (new)

Mandiann (goodreadscommandiann) | 7529 comments Hmmm, I see what you mean. Well Belle is aware he hasn't checked in and might get us a replacement. If he checks in before that, he will just miss getting to submit a movie. I will send ours in with just the four.

Once I get these submitted I will try to brainstorm some names.


message 19: by Mandiann (last edited Mar 03, 2016 07:41PM) (new)

Mandiann (goodreadscommandiann) | 7529 comments Thanks for trying Delitealex.

Do you have any ideas for names?

We could be the Screen Junkies (I love their youtube channel. Honest Trailers are hilarious!) or Book Junkies? Will keep thinking.


message 20: by Delitealex (new)

Delitealex | 3170 comments From Book to Screen, Book trailers, Cinematic Readers


message 21: by Mandiann (new)

Mandiann (goodreadscommandiann) | 7529 comments I need some Cinespiration.


message 22: by Mandiann (new)

Mandiann (goodreadscommandiann) | 7529 comments I like Book Trailers.


message 23: by Cara (new)

Cara (caramariew) | 406 comments I like cinespration.


message 24: by Delitealex (new)

Delitealex | 3170 comments I like cinespration and screen junkies


message 25: by Delitealex (last edited Mar 04, 2016 11:09AM) (new)

Delitealex | 3170 comments I'm excited to see the first movie.


message 26: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new)

Trisha | 31440 comments Yay! Hello guys! i'm here as your back up player :)

I like Screen Junkies

that's awesome!


message 27: by Mandiann (new)

Mandiann (goodreadscommandiann) | 7529 comments Yay! welcome to the team!!


message 28: by Mandiann (new)

Mandiann (goodreadscommandiann) | 7529 comments So it looks like the consensus is either Cinespiration or Screen Junkies. If we do Cinespiration would it be just the one word or would we work it into a phrase?

Have you done scribd?

If not, I can send you a (I think) either 30 or 60 day trial and you can read all you want in those days!

Trisha | 31440 comments Mandiann wrote: "No, I have not. What exactly is it?"

It's kind of like having a library on-line. You can pay for a membership (You can do monthly, for a few month, or more). It has a lot of indie authors (you know where you get the first one free but the rest all cost) but it also has novellas and audio books. It does have new ones too! I really like it and it's how am able to do a lot of these challenge and not pay for books anymore :)

and you just search for a book, and then read it
the audio books are a little trickier, I think you are limited to how many you can get each month. it's great, I really love it
