ALTERNATE LIST:

Each number corresponds with the spot on the board.
For colors: The cover has to be at least 50%
For locations: As long as the book takes part at all in the given location
For Shelves: Any book on the given shelf
For Publication Years: I'll be using how GR has it's publication date listed.
For Authors Names: The first, middle, or last name of the author is ok.
For Cover Items: Must have the given item on the cover
For Titles: Only the first word of the title. A, An, And, and The do not count.
So if the letter is B: The Best Day would be ok. Dear Betty would not be ok.

Possible team names

Ten and all is well


message 9: by Erin L (new)

Erin L (wellreadmoose) | 263 comments I like Ten Speeds, it reminds me I should drag my bike out of the garage and actually use it before winter descends again.

I'm also out for captain, I'm captain on another team and off on vacation for a week and a half - I"ll be able to read and post reviews, but timing and availability for rolls is really uncertain on a road trip


message 10: by Krissy (new)

Krissy (krissystewart) | 3330 comments I'm good with Ten Speeds. I will captain only if nobody else wants to.


Roger - president of NBR United - (roger_presidentofnbrunited) | 1163 comments Well we got a majority for Ten Speeds. but should wait for Gabriela and DG to comment before setting it in stone.


message 12: by Gabriela (new)

Gabriela | 192 comments Ten Speeds sounds good to me too. I'd appreciate not being captain this time around since I'm still finding my way.


message 13: by Krissy (new)

Krissy (krissystewart) | 3330 comments Since DG hasn't checked in yet I went ahead and messaged her.


message 14: by D.G. (new)

D.G. | 26 comments I didn't know that Ezi signed me up! (I commented on the thread that I wanted to join but I was going to be on vacation for a couple of weeks in August and wasn't sure I could read both weeks.)

Let me check with Ezi and I'll be right back!


message 15: by Krissy (new)

Krissy (krissystewart) | 3330 comments Okay. Just let us know the final decision


message 16: by Krissy (new)

Krissy (krissystewart) | 3330 comments I'm going to go ahead and announce that I'm the captain and our team name is Ten Speeds.

DG, it's up to you whether you want to play or not. I do have a back up if you aren't feeling the game this round. Just let me know ASAP.


message 18: by Krissy (new)

Krissy (krissystewart) | 3330 comments Good morning team! I hope you're ready because I'll be rolling those dice at midnight tonight!


message 19: by Erin L (new)

Erin L (wellreadmoose) | 263 comments I am ready! I'll probably be up trying to finish my SSS book!

No pressure, but if you could roll a 10, that'd be great. I have The Curse of Tenth Grave (Charley Davidson, #10) by Darynda Jones just waiting to be read. ;)


message 20: by Krissy (new)

Krissy (krissystewart) | 3330 comments Lol. I'll do my best!


message 21: by Gabriela (new)

Gabriela | 192 comments I'm ready but I don't think I'll be awake for it (it will be 3 AM over here!)

BTW, a 10 would work for me too ;)


message 22: by Erin L (last edited Jul 14, 2016 10:23AM) (new)

Erin L (wellreadmoose) | 263 comments I'm in the mountain time zone so it'll be 11. AND I have tomorrow off so I'll be up :D

Edit: I may be too excited about this.


Roger - president of NBR United - (roger_presidentofnbrunited) | 1163 comments I won't be up but if you roll a 5 (sss roll) or a 10 or higher I have standalones for S Hunt that I Could use. I have to be up at 4 am CST so in bed by midnight on days before I have to work.

Did you notice how many hours of sleep I function on? between 4 - 5 a night.

I wouldn't be able to survive unless I could take a 5 hour nap during the day


Roger - president of NBR United - (roger_presidentofnbrunited) | 1163 comments I have always been like that even in my teen years it might have been 6 hours a night then.


message 32: by Erin L (new)

Erin L (wellreadmoose) | 263 comments Welcome Mika.

Roger, I tried getting up at 4am to run before work for awhile. IT didn't last long. I need more sleep than that.

Tried that my first Year when I read Angel and the Assassin for points and cringed my way through it I changed to Just have fun and points are a bonus. granted I do have a certain point threshold I won't post unless it is an unchangeable book. but I never read another book just because of points.


message 48: by Ezi, Factory Superintendent (new)

Ezi Chinny (ezinwanyi) | 16461 comments Mod
I read books that I hated just for points and the game became a chore and not fun. Reading is a relaxing activity but not when I'm looking for elevator, piercing etc
I think if I was on a team that wasn't so competitive, it would have been fun


Roger - president of NBR United - (roger_presidentofnbrunited) | 1163 comments It is And now that I am captain I emphasize the fact that this should be fun and not a chore. Not that I wouldn't mind winning but reading should be fun and not a chore.
