Karin | 807 comments Okay, I signed up even though it's summer and I usually avoid thses sorts of things. I hope I don't have to read any vampire books or too much romance given two of the group names.

I don't think you do, Karin... if you check the Olympics groups, you can view the tasks for each Event and I reckon there's enough diversity to cater to everybody's tastes :)

And yay!! Good luck with the challenge!

Okay, not going to worry about it. I will have enough computer and reading time as I wait for my kids and once my middle one starts community college (a good one) and I have to wait there for her.

Debi, on the right hand corner of your screen, you can see your avi. Hover your mouse over it and a menu will pop up. Click on 'View your Profile'. It will take you to your profile. Copy the html and that's what you need to provide on the sign up.

hope that helps :)

D.G. | 1370 comments I signed up in Google Docs but haven't heard anything...I thought I was going to get an invite to the group?

You don't need an invite, D.G.
You actually need to spin for your colour & read a book with 50% of that cover... Go to the opening ceremony thread: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...

The sign up form will be used to sort teams/countries but spin the wheel for your colour.
