Hi Team! I can't be captain, since the main point of it is to double check the points for our team against the spreadsheet, so hopefully one of you will be okay with doing it. :)

As for a team name, do we want to use 3 somehow in it (since that's the number team we are)? Or use the color green, since that's the color for our team on the spreadsheet? Or do something completely different?


message 9: by Dizzy (new)

Dizzy (dizzy_booknerd) | 249 comments Hey guys! I'm so excited to start this tomorrow! I'm cool with whatever name... something with 3 in it sounds good! :)

I'll have my book done tomorrow before the deadline, sorry for taking SO long!

I messaged Caroline and she told me she won't be able to participate, as her mother passed away recently (May 12th) and so she doesn't think she'll get much reading done. I'm going to leave a message that we need a backup player.

I plan on reading Doctor Who Tales of Trenzalore The Eleventh Doctor's Last Stand by Justin Richards for the new letter and category. The cover has navy on it (his suit and possibly the lettering). I'm just about finished with The Here and Now and will get my review for it posted today, before the deadline. :)

Yeah, it can be anywhere on the cover. It can also be in the title and doesn't have to be used as a color when it's in the title. It doesn't have to be navy, that's just the color I chose. Here's a site that lists a bunch of colors beginning with N: http://colorful.wikia.com/wiki/List_o...

I'm not sure about the letters being navy, it could just be my screen is off or the picture for the cover isn't the best quality, but parts of the background does look Navajo White so it works.

I hadn't heard of this book before, but it sounds like one I'd love and so I've added it to my tbr list. :)
