Ora (oeamis) Welcome to Team Augustus Waters! If you are not familiar with Augustus, he wanted to kick cancer's butt and live his life. I loved this book. It is both heart warming and heart breaking. You definitely need lots of Kleenex for this one.

We have already received our February cards.
The easiest thing to do is read what you want. Most books will work for a few cards so the spreadsheet is going to be fluid with where books are going to placed. I have made a working spreadsheet for us to use during the month. I am not sure if things can be moved around once placed in the spreadsheet, so I have decide to go with caution to wait until the end of the month to fill in out official spreadsheet.

About halfway through the month the mods will give us the opportunity to get bonus points. Hopefully we will be able to max out on points.

Karen ⊰✿ | 3172 comments Hi Ora! *waves*
Just stopping by

Oh, and you can move around the books on the spreadsheet as much as you want through the month. It's only at the end of the month (we will do a countdown) that things become "locked" in :)


message 9: by Ora (new)

Ora (oeamis) Thanks Karen!!


message 10: by Kiara (new)

Kiara (acapellaecho) | 9 comments Help! So we can only put things in spreadsheet on browser? Because I'm on the app and it won't let me do anything.


message 11: by Ora (new)

Ora (oeamis) Hi Kiara!!!

It may just be a problem with the app right now. I do not use the app on the phone so I do not know if it is different for the iPad. When I use it on my iPad it kind of a crap shoot if it will let me go to the spreadsheet.


message 12: by Ora (new)

Ora (oeamis) Kiara I just added the breakdown of how many of each card we need in message 5

message 14: by Ora (new)

Ora (oeamis) Hi Angie!!!! I hope you like Augustus.


message 15: by Kiara (new)

Kiara (acapellaecho) | 9 comments I see! Thank you! So when I read a book for one of the cards.. do I just submit it in here, or do I have to somehow get to the spreadsheet?


message 16: by Kiara (new)

Kiara (acapellaecho) | 9 comments The rules say we were going to be dealt 7 cards so why are there so many in your updated post?

Sorry this is my first year lol

Just submit the information here. Either I or one of the co-captains (Angie and Donna) will put it the spreadsheet.

Angie ☯ | 688 comments Getting to know you questions

1. Is this the first time playing UNO?

It is my first time playing UNO.

2. Where do you live or your time zone?
EST / Johnson City, Tennessee

3. What's your preferred genre?
I will read pretty much anything and am even more open when it is for a challenge. My favorites are Mystery/Suspense, Paranormal (fantasy or UF)

4. Any suggestions for cards that you feel will be difficult to find books for?
I would think Z would be the hardest...but I have no background in this challenge to base that on.

Zane = character in the Rogue River novellas by Kendra Elliot and Melinda Leigh (most are over 100 pages)

I = Iris Johansen (Kendra Michaels series)


message 25: by Ora (new)

Ora (oeamis) Z's can be hard to find but you can also read stand alones for 0 also so that makes it a little easier. I have 2 Rebecca Zanetti books I decided to wait to read and a third that will be released on the 31st. One of the two is hard to wait for since I just realized it is a spin off of a series I was disappointed that ended.

Kaylee Wilson | 582 comments Hello!! :D sorry for the delay!


message 27: by Ora (new)

Ora (oeamis) Welcome Kalyee! No big deal we have several days before we start yet.


message 28: by Ora (new)

Ora (oeamis) Angie I saw a review for a book I think you would like. I think I am going to save this one for February since MC's name is Iris.

The Marriage Lie by Kimberly Belle

message 29: by Angie ☯ (new)

Angie ☯ | 688 comments Thanks, Ora!! I will keep this on my list for UNO books. :-)


message 30: by Ora (last edited Jan 26, 2017 12:50PM) (new)

Ora (oeamis) I know above that I mentioned not picking any cards and reading what you want. Well, Angie reminded me of what we did when we played wobble and have everyone pick two cards each and the others will be a first come basis. I will plan on doing weekly updates of what cards we need so it will be easier to see where we stand with books.
When you get a chance, please pick two cards that you would want to read for and let me know what the card is and the book.
Here's the breakdown of our cards.

0: 3
1: 8
2: 5
3: 6
4: 7
5: 7
6: 6
7: 8
8: 8

Reverse: 7
Wild: 5
Wild Draw 4: 3
