Wolf (Alpha) | 2619 comments Checking in. Nice to be on a team with you again Jamie. Melanie, we got lucky and were put on the same team again. Dannii and Alley it's nice to meet you and be on the same team.


message 5: by Jamie (new)

Jamie | 11278 comments Hi Wolf! Great to see you again!


message 6: by Wolf (Alpha) (new)

Wolf (Alpha) | 2619 comments Hope to be of help this challenge.


message 7: by Wolf (Alpha) (new)

Wolf (Alpha) | 2619 comments So do we have to all find a book to fit the categories? Or do we have to do it like we are doing the challenge currently?


message 8: by Jamie (new)

Jamie | 11278 comments No, one person can do a whole category, or all can do a book for it. Whatever works, so long as 4 books are read to close it out.


message 9: by Jamie (new)

Jamie | 11278 comments Alright got a lot for dead, 1 for thing and some for and so far Although a few of the new series' I was hoping to hold off on starting but we shall see. Depends what the rest of you might be able or want to read. :) Heading back out to the library and checking kindle to see what else I have available.

Jamie | 11278 comments Shockingly, Virus is causing me the most hassle right now. Viral I got but no virus that I can find.

Update--found 1 on kindle but again another series!

Will check my local library as well.


message 11: by Jamie (new)

Jamie | 11278 comments SO as everyone else finds books that work that the can do fairly soon if needed, let me know what your options are!


message 12: by Jamie (new)

Jamie | 11278 comments Looks like someone set of a BR for Shadow and Bone so I will likely do that for sure as one of the and titles so we get the extra points.


message 13: by Jamie (new)

Jamie | 11278 comments Well library didn't have much for virus either that i would want to read. But did find 1 other.

I am excited to see what books everyone else wants to read for the categories!

Alley Kat (alleykat666) | 768 comments Checking in! Let me look through my books real quick and see what I have for our first words.


message 24: by Alley (new)

Alley Kat (alleykat666) | 768 comments I've got several books that would work for AND, but that pretty much seems taken care of. :D

I also have The Dead Girls of Hysteria Hall by Katie Alender , so we can buddy that!

I feel like VIRUS will be the hardest.


message 25: by Melanie (new)

Melanie (lovebeingvegan) | 12048 comments The book I mentioned above for virus is a kindle freebie, so if anyone feels like buddy reading it with me just let me know.

Sweet! When do you want to start it? The sooner, the better I'd say.

Just got it. When do you want to start this one?


message 28: by Melanie (new)

Melanie (lovebeingvegan) | 12048 comments @Jamie -- maybe the 2nd? Or whenever you are free. :)


message 29: by Jamie (new)

Jamie | 11278 comments And Alley, please still feel free to read or share any AND books still. With 8 needing to be read. Unless I have them planned as buddy reads, nothing is locked in for me until I actually start a book.

Jamie | 11278 comments Melanie wrote: "@Jamie -- maybe the 2nd? Or whenever you are free. :)"

Sure. I'll go request it :)

message 33: by Jamie (new)

Jamie | 11278 comments We all all here! Yay!!


message 34: by Melanie (new)

Melanie (lovebeingvegan) | 12048 comments Lol! I love reading nonfiction! :))


message 35: by Dannii (new)

Me too, I tend to acquire so much of it though before I get around to reading it!

Just saw that Concealed (Virus #1) by R.J. Crayton already has a BR set up for it, :) My library's copy is out on loan until the middle of June, though so I can't join! Noooo!


message 37: by Jamie (new)

Jamie | 11278 comments Alright, getting books added in for possibilites. With so many ANDs I already took one off.

If anyone changes their mind on a book(s)-especially once we get reading and getting 2-3 of the books read for a category, please let me know so I remove them from the list.

Get it straight from Amazon. If is free, it would be awesome to read this together and all get the double points. And it isn't a very long book it seems.

This is my problem! I almost looked through my nonfiction shelves but right now they are blocked by another bookcase and chair. So...not today. But I need to get on reading mine.


message 40: by Dannii (new)

Dannii Elle (danniiellereads) | 8333 comments Should be fine with all my picks :) I can start with reading Ink and Bone (The Great Library, #1) by Rachel Caine , which has a BR set up for it and looks like a quick read, too.

Ooh! I MIGHT join you on that....give me a few days to think on it. Since it is already set up I'll just jump in if I can make it.


message 42: by Alley (new)

Alley Kat (alleykat666) | 768 comments Would anyone be opposed to setting up a spreadsheet? We'd all be able to edit it then, and it's easier to see what's already been read/submitted. I can set it up.


message 43: by Melanie (new)

Melanie (lovebeingvegan) | 12048 comments I think I'm going to make a spreadsheet for us, if you guys think it will help. I know it makes things easier for me to keep track. LOL ;)


message 44: by Jamie (new)

Jamie | 11278 comments Either one of you feel free to make a spreadsheet :)

Oops. I didn't see your comment before posting mine regarding a spreadsheet. ;)
