It’s time to play TCF Hangman.

This is an ongoing game that anyone can play. Jump in at any time to request a letter, but you have to have asked for at least one letter in order to make a guess at the puzzle.

To guess a letter in the puzzle, use the first word in the title (ignore 'a', 'an', 'the') or the author's first or last name of the book you have just finished reading.

examples:
to ask for a B - The Beekeeper's Apprentice
to ask for a J - a book by Jane Austen
to ask for a W - a book by Scott Westerfeld
to ask for a F - 44 Scotland Street

You must finish your book after the puzzle is posted.
Books must be at least 150 pages.
For anthologies, go by the editor's name.

To make a guess at the quote, put your solution in a separate post.
Whoever gets it first, wins.

I can think of it possibly being two issues - either Goodreads is not sending them out to you for some reason, or you need to look at your settings. Do you see below the comment box where you can click or unclick the "Notify me when people reply" button? Is it on?

Anyway, good luck.

Erica, have you noticed the new setting in the upper right between the notifications bell and the messages envelope? While you're getting things sorted out, you can check the group discussions there. Hangman 2017 is always there.
