Amanda | 218 comments Hi everyone! I'm so excited for WOBBLE. I have never done a big reading challenge like this before and I think it will be a lot of fun. I had no idea what a Markhor was before these teams were formed, but they are very cool and I'm glad I'm on Team Markhor! I love the horns :)

Looking forward to all the reading and kicking some WOBBLE butt with all of you!

Click on your shelf - Go to the address bar and right click - hit copy - come over here and in new post right click - hit paste - and then post.

If that doesn't work let me know and I will help you out.

Jo-Jo | 686 comments Thanks for the message Michelle! It's great to see someone familiar here. =)

Nice to meet everyone! I am really excited for this challenge, it sounds like so much fun.

My favorite genres are Paranormal/Supernatural, Urban Fantasy, Historical Romance(but haven't read any in awhile), Young Adult, Erotica, Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Horror. Honestly, I will read just about anything if it seems interesting to me. I don't tend to read as much Non-Fiction, but I do enjoy True Crime books, and I have my eye on some other Non-Fiction reads that I think I'll enjoy.

Here is my shelf for this challenge: WOBBLE2016

Let the fun begin! =D

Rachael (rachaelc94) | 97 comments https://www.goodreads.com/review/list...

Here's my goodreads shelf. I think a really easy way to keep track of who has read what is to create a google spreadsheet. You would just need everybody's email so that they could all edit it.


message 43: by Kay Kay (last edited Jun 09, 2016 05:56PM) (new)

Kay Kay | 1793 comments Ok here is my shelf. https://www.goodreads.com/review/list...

I am very eclectic and not really picky. I will read just about anything. So, if we need someone to fill in holes ... I'll read it. Well unless it's really nasty.


message 44: by Brittney (new)

Brittney | 650 comments I will read pretty much any genre. I prefer Suspense Thrillers, and Historical Fiction, and mystery. I have been reading a lot of Sci-fi and Fantasy lately though.

Here is my shelf:

♞ Pat Gent | 536 comments We're having a bit of a conversation in the All-Teams Endangered Chat.

What would you guys think about the four teams dividing up the time frame and putting together four mini-challenges for just our group?


Due to the hinky start and finish dates, there's not a 4 week block that encompases a single month, so what if we did a 3 week mini-challenge schedule with a week in between .... lagging the first start time until after WOBBLE is good and going?

Each endangered team would take one 3-week period and host a mini-challenge with just our sub-group.

Here's my thinking on the schedule : each one starts on a Sunday and runs 3 weeks, skipping a week until the next start.

June 26 - July 17
July 24 - August 14
August 28 - September 11
September 25 - October 16

You guys up for something like that? Let's do some deciding in the All Endangered Chat if you want to participate!

message 47: by Brittney (new)

Brittney | 650 comments An idea for our mini challenge:

We could have them do a Spell-it-out challenge by doing each animals name and where they are found. For example:

Snow Leopard: Central and South Asia
Dholes: Asia
Markhors: Pakistan or Afghanistan
Polar Bears: Arctic Circle

OR:

Spell-it-Out challenge with the animals name and their scientific name. For Example:

Snow Leopards: Panthera uncia
Dholes: Cuon alpinus
Markhors: Capra falconeri
Polar Bears: Ursus Maritimus.

Standard Spell-it-out rules apply

What do ya'll think?

Ashley M  (read-a-hol-ic) | 762 comments How do I create a link to my Wobble book shelf?

Also, what do you need me to read?

I picked out a book from each genre from the battleship list. Do I start now? Reading one just in case.
