Melanie (lovebeingvegan) Checking in! Looking forward to the game.


message 6: by Thenia (new)

Thenia | 245 comments Hello team! I look forward to playing with you all.


message 7: by Melanie (new)

Melanie (lovebeingvegan) Who's willing to be captain? I can be a co-captain, but can't really commit to full captain duties.


message 8: by Denise (new)

Denise Lauron (dlauron) | 390 comments Hi. Just checking in. I found my team.


Jodie (J.C.T) Team Norse (jodiewolfbane) Hi all this is my first time of playing but looking forward to it for this reason I won't be captain but will gladly help if I can.


message 10: by Thenia (new)

Thenia | 245 comments So apart from Brenn who hasn't checked in yet and Denise who hasn't specified, no one else wants to be captain. I wouldn't mind putting on the captain hat if neither of you two wants to either.


message 11: by Denise (new)

Denise Lauron (dlauron) | 390 comments I'd prefer to not be the captain this round, if it's all the same to you. :)


message 12: by Denise (new)

Denise Lauron (dlauron) | 390 comments Ok, not that I'm the captain or anything, but shouldn't someone reach out to Brenn, and shouldn't we pick a name?


message 13: by Denise (new)

Denise Lauron (dlauron) | 390 comments I wonder if a moderator could help locate her?


message 14: by Denise (new)

Denise Lauron (dlauron) | 390 comments I like them because it forces me to be accountable and actually work toward my annual goal.


Jodie (J.C.T) Team Norse (jodiewolfbane) That's why I wanted to do it when I saw this challenge I'm already 23 book behind schedule oops


message 16: by Denise (new)

Denise Lauron (dlauron) | 390 comments Oh good. I don't feel as bad. I'm 18 books behind schedule.


Jodie (J.C.T) Team Norse (jodiewolfbane) that was my goal this year two a week just not happening I'm sure I normally read more than this just keep getting distracted.


message 18: by Denise (new)

Denise Lauron (dlauron) | 390 comments I set a goal of 60, knowing that the early part of this year was going to be difficult to meet my usual book a week goal. I didn't know that the year was going to be as tough as it has been. I'm starting to catch up a bit, though.


Jodie (J.C.T) Team Norse (jodiewolfbane) I'm I right that only series with 4 or more books count


Jodie (J.C.T) Team Norse (jodiewolfbane) thanks Kelli I will x

~★ Kelli★ ~ wrote: "I just looked for Brenn on the sign up thread to message her but I can't find her sign up post, other wise I would PM her to let her know that she's on our team"

So I wrote Brenna's name twice so there's no 2nd Brenna.
I just pm'd a backup layer so hang tight while I add a real player for you.
Sorry about that.
Ezi


Jodie (J.C.T) Team Norse (jodiewolfbane) just came back from the library think I have a book for every number but 8


message 25: by Denise (new)

Denise Lauron (dlauron) | 390 comments just waiting on the roll.... :)

Everyone please welcome Sheila...an SS veteran to your team. Sorry about the phantom player I added before (hehehe)
And I appreciate your gracious words Kelli


message 27: by Sheila (new)

Sheila (sheilaj) Hello everyone. I signed up to be a backup player but got called into the game from the bullpen early to replace the mysterious Brenna.


message 28: by Sheila (new)

Sheila (sheilaj) When I think of 13 I think of Lucky 13 or Spooky 13 (as in Friday the 13th) or Baker's Dozen.


Jodie (J.C.T) Team Norse (jodiewolfbane) I always have better luck on Fridays 13ths lol when it's time to roll it will be 5am where I am tempted to wake up early just so I know what book to read or just not go to bed and finish Fahrenheit 451


Jodie (J.C.T) Team Norse (jodiewolfbane) oh and welcome Sheila


message 31: by Denise (new)

Denise Lauron (dlauron) | 390 comments I like baker's dozen.

Welcome, Sheila!


message 32: by Melanie (new)

Qualification: (Faye Longchamp #5)

Set in New Orleans post Katrina


Jodie (J.C.T) Team Norse (jodiewolfbane) im going with
Mardi Gras Massacre

its #5 in the Penetrator never read one before but I've never come across a crime series before where you have to read them in order


message 36: by Melanie (new)

Melanie (lovebeingvegan) I'm reading Secrets and Lies. #5 in the Rookie K-9 Unit series.


Jodie (J.C.T) Team Norse (jodiewolfbane) I'm going to have to change mine 20% through reading it and just realised one Its not got enough pages and I really don't like it just one fight/action scene after another


message 38: by Sheila (new)

Sheila (sheilaj) what is the page limit?


Jodie (J.C.T) Team Norse (jodiewolfbane) it has to be more than 140 pages


message 41: by Sheila (new)

Sheila (sheilaj) OK, thanks. Don't think I read anything that short.


message 42: by Jodie (J.C.T) Team Norse (last edited Jun 03, 2017 03:05AM) (new)

Jodie (J.C.T) Team Norse (jodiewolfbane) I didn't check just downloaded it to kindle for a different challenge I don't tend to read small books before I got my kindle but read a few around 198 pages and found them good but because their part of a series, they could have been one long book.


message 43: by Jodie (J.C.T) Team Norse (last edited Jun 03, 2017 03:07AM) (new)

Jodie (J.C.T) Team Norse (jodiewolfbane) I found another which looks a lot better its called One True Mate 5: Shifter's Rogue 384 pages its also said to be a stand-alone but better if you read the others first. Can't put in link as I'm on the kindle now.


message 44: by Thenia (new)

Thenia | 245 comments Huh, apparently I'm the captain of our team! I'd better get us organized...

Welcome Sheila, thanks for joining us. :)

Team name options so far:
- Lucky 13
- Spooky 13
- Baker's Dozen

Baker's Dozen is in the lead. Unless someone objects, that will probably be our name.


Jodie (J.C.T) Team Norse (jodiewolfbane) no problem with me

message 47: by Sheila (new)

Sheila (sheilaj) One of the most important parts of being in a team challenge for me is to get to know a little bit about my teammates. How about we each post an introduction. I'll go ahead and get us started.

I am a recently retired respiratory therapist. Now that I am retired I have lots of time to read. My big thing is mystery series so this challenge is great for me. I'm married and live along the Mississippi River in Illinois, USA. I have 2 married children and 3 delightful grandsons.

I mostly listen to audiobooks so I can pursue my other hobby of quilting.


message 48: by Denise (new)

Denise Lauron (dlauron) | 390 comments I will look at what i have during my lunch break.

I'm a radiation therapist in California. I read for quiet time. My family knows not to disturb sleep, reading or exercise. I have them trained.


Jodie (J.C.T) Team Norse (jodiewolfbane) hi I'm 30 currently out of work due to health reason but more time for reading.

I read pretty much anything depending on my mood by my favourite seem to be crime, paranormal and young adult mainly because YA is easier to read for me. I have recently got into dystopia books too.


message 50: by Denise (new)

Denise Lauron (dlauron) | 390 comments I'm going with the alternate on this one. Holes was made into a movie.
