message 8: by Dawn (new)

Dawn (baseballblondie) | 1180 comments Hi guys! I'm excited to start this team challenge.

I'll also volunteer to be captain. :) Though if one of you want it, I don't have a problem with that either.

So let's get to know each other and try to come up with a team name.

I'm a baseball fan, live in Houston, TX, love to read (obviously), scrapbook, spend time with friends. I have one furry four-legged creature that I'm a mommy to - my sweet kitty cat Kiki. I work full time and run a Mary Kay business in my semi-spare time.


Team names: Roaming Readers, Book Maniacs


message 9: by Janet (new)

Janet | 113 comments Dawn,

I am happy to vote you in as captain.

I am a soccer fan and live in Houston, TX. I am a wife, mother of 2 adult children, work full time, enjoy cooking and baking, Bible study, friends and of course reading.

Team name suggestions: Literary ladies, Sassy Scavengers. But Dawn I like both your suggestions.

You will find I am pretty easy going about this kind of stuff.

Rita | 4895 comments
Hi Dawn & Janet. I'm looking forward to starting this challenge with you ladies.

I'm fine with you being captain, Dawn.

Since our score sheet is purple, I thought we might incorporate the word royal in our team name.

Possible Team Names: Rapid Royal Readers, Royal Reading Trio, Royal Page Turners



message 11: by Dawn (new)

Dawn (baseballblondie) | 1180 comments I like the idea of using purple too.


message 12: by Janet (new)

Janet | 113 comments I love purple, its my second favorite color.

Purple passion readers?


message 13: by Dawn (new)

Dawn (baseballblondie) | 1180 comments Royal Fiction Fanatics?

I'll let Megan know I'm the captain.


message 14: by Rita (new)

Rita | 4895 comments
My favorite so far is: Royal Reading Trio

- Royal - for the color purple and the fact that we are children of the King
- Reading - that's what we'll be doing
- Trio - three of us.



message 15: by Dawn (new)

Dawn (baseballblondie) | 1180 comments I like that one Rita!


message 16: by Janet (new)

Janet | 113 comments Sounds good to me

message 18: by Dawn (new)

Dawn (baseballblondie) | 1180 comments Ok guys. The first letter and category has been called - S and main female character.

I'll look to see what books I've got on my list that fit that.


message 19: by Dawn (new)

Dawn (baseballblondie) | 1180 comments I"m going to read One More Last Chance (A Place to Call Home #2) by Cathleen Armstrong for this category. The main character's name is Sarah. And it's a review book I've got to do as well.

Main Female Character: Sarah Cooley
Review https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...


message 24: by Dawn (new)

Dawn (baseballblondie) | 1180 comments Awesome! We all finished before the next category was called.

THe new category is Animal and the letter is A. I have a book in mind, but Megan has to answer the question I have about it.


message 25: by Janet (new)

Janet | 113 comments Anyone has a suggestion for getting more than one point for this one? I guess we just need to make sure we have it read before the next one is called to get the bonus point.


message 26: by Rita (new)

Rita | 4895 comments I found my book - and it's worth (2) points...YAY!


message 27: by Dawn (new)

Dawn (baseballblondie) | 1180 comments I think the only way to get two points on this one is if the book refers to the animal as "Mable the Magpie."

Awesome Rita! If you've got suggestions for either of us that would be super awesome.


message 28: by Dawn (new)

Dawn (baseballblondie) | 1180 comments I've got my book. And it'll count for 2 points! Yay! I'll start it tonight. I had to ask to make sure that it would count for 2.


message 29: by Janet (new)

Janet | 113 comments Looks like it will be one point for me.


message 30: by Dawn (new)

Dawn (baseballblondie) | 1180 comments How are you ladies doing on your animal book? We get a new category on Monday. I plan to have mine finished by Sunday.


message 31: by Janet (new)

Janet | 113 comments I will post my review no later than Sunday as well. Can't wait to see what is next for us.


message 32: by Rita (new)

Rita | 4895 comments
I finished mine on the 17th and will have my review posted before the deadline.

Finished my book for: Animal (A)

Read A Proper Pursuit by Lynn Austin ★★★★★
Animal/Insect: Army Ants (2 points)
Started: May 15, 2014
Finished: May 17, 2014

https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...



message 36: by Dawn (new)

Dawn (baseballblondie) | 1180 comments New category today.

Letter N
Category - Color

So we need to find books that are a certain color, have a character, title, or author that have the color in their name.

Color name examples - navy, neon green, nude, etc


message 37: by Dawn (new)

Dawn (baseballblondie) | 1180 comments I've narrowed my selection down to one of four different books. Not sure which I'll use for this week though. I have no idea how we can get 2 points on this one.


message 38: by Rita (new)

Rita | 4895 comments
I haven't found any colors with two words both beginning with the letter 'N', so I don't think it's possible to find a book worth (2) points for this one.



message 39: by Dawn (new)

Dawn (baseballblondie) | 1180 comments Here's my review for my book.

Read Candle in the Darkness (Refiner's Fire, #1) by Lynn Austin ★★★★★
Color: Navy Blue (1 point)
Started: May 28, 2014
Finished: May 31, 2014

https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...



message 42: by Dawn (new)

Dawn (baseballblondie) | 1180 comments I love how we've all finished our books already! Go us!


message 43: by Dawn (new)

Dawn (baseballblondie) | 1180 comments New category called.

Secondary Male Character (any male character that is not the lead, even if mentioned once.)

Letter : E (so if we find a secondary male whose name is Edmund Eugene Edwards (and it's mentioned that way), it's worth 3 points).

I'm going to check on some of the ones I need to start for reviewing to see if any of the characters will fit.


message 44: by Janet (new)

Janet | 113 comments If you find anything great please message me. I will start going through my books too.


message 45: by Rita (new)

Rita | 4895 comments
I've begun my search and found some with only one name beginning with 'E'. Even though I think it's going to take quite some time to find one worth more than (1) point...the search continues! :)



message 46: by Janet (new)

Janet | 113 comments Thanks Rita! Appreciate you help!


message 47: by Dawn (new)

Dawn (baseballblondie) | 1180 comments I've got a couple that came to mind rather quickly. Though both only have secondary characters with one E.

Janet, I messaged you two of them.


message 48: by Dawn (new)

Dawn (baseballblondie) | 1180 comments I've finished my book for Secondary Male Character. I'll post the review as it gets closer to the deadline.
