Steph (angel4492) | 27153 comments Hiya, Team Caps! Thanks for volunteering to guide your team through a round of BookShelf Bingo!

Your job, should you choose to accept it, will require a few things:
1 ~ Be our go-to person should we have any questions about your team
2 ~ Organize your teammate's weekly reads for each shelf/category so that the BSB Ninjas can quickly and easily verify and approve your stamp request(s)
2a ~ Create a master list in a post (preferably on the first page of your team's thread) and update it weekly or as often as necessary
2b ~ Post your team's stats on the Captain's Log prior to requesting a stamp
3 ~ Encourage and motivate your team (you may also ask to borrow Judithe's whip whenever necessary)
4 ~ Post regularly to ensure your team is communicating and on track each week
4a ~ Send them a PM and friendly poke if they haven't posted at least once a week, noted their book choice, and/or appear to have dropped out of webspace
5 ~ Send us a PM (Steph, Sandra or Judithe) should you need us for any reason throughout the game

message 10: by Diane ~Firefly~ (new)

Diane ~Firefly~ | 858 comments I like Spine Crackers for a name.


message 11: by Melissa (new)

Melissa Davis | 605 comments I think someone else already picked that one! I didn't notice until after I posted.


message 12: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 22975 comments Yep, Team #15 is Spine Crackers :)


message 13: by Nici (new)

Nici (queennici102) | 666 comments how about first place as a name?


message 14: by Diane ~Firefly~ (new)

Diane ~Firefly~ | 858 comments I also like Bemused Bibliophiles. Or One for Books, Books for All.


message 15: by Melissa (new)

Melissa Davis | 605 comments ooooh... I like that "One for Books, Books for All" - incorporates the "#1" theme that Nici wants. I think that's a good compromise ...


message 16: by Steph, Road Tripper!! (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 27153 comments Hi ladies. Alice has said that she has to drop out, so I'm contacting alternate players for someone to take her place. Hopefully we'll have someone in place for ya before tomorrow's shelf announcement.


message 17: by Diane ~Firefly~ (new)

Diane ~Firefly~ | 858 comments Thanks Steph!


message 18: by Steph, Road Tripper!! (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 27153 comments Welcome :) I'll let ya know once I know more.


message 19: by Steph, Road Tripper!! (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 27153 comments Miss Steph Ann will be checking in with y'all soon. She'll be taking Alice's place.


message 20: by Steph Ann (new)

Steph Ann | 1063 comments Hi, ladies!

I'm excited to be joining the team! :)

I'm a fan of One for Books, Books for All as well for team name. I would prefer not to be captain, as my computer time is unpredictable due to having three kids under the age of 3. Anytime I try to sneak a moment on the app or on my computer, I tend to miss something mischievous going on and have to drop what I'm doing quickly lol. That being said, if everyone else really doesn't want to do it, I have been captain before in previous rounds, so I don't mind doing it. I just usually can't get online until all the kids are in bed, so I would most likely miss posting shelf calls.

I can't wait to get started! I'll get my freespace book chosen ASAP!


message 21: by Melissa (new)

Melissa Davis | 605 comments Yay! Welcome! I am a total newbie to BSB but I can usually get on throughout the day M-F. Weekends are trickier. I don't mind trying out captain if no one else wants to but I would love some guidance if you guys don't mind. I'm still kinda unsure how it will all work but I learn fast!


message 22: by Steph Ann (new)

Steph Ann | 1063 comments I'm happy to offer any guidance/answer any questions you may have! BSB can seem a little overwhelming as a newbie, but it's way easier to play than it is to explain! :-)

If you would rather not be captain your first time, I can totally do it too. Or, if you wanted to co-captain, we could figure something out that way too. I did that once before. I can't remember exactly how it worked at the moment because I've been up since 3:30 this morning and my brain is starting to get fuzzy lol. Basically, I'm good with whatever you would like to do!


message 23: by Diane ~Firefly~ (new)

Diane ~Firefly~ | 858 comments Welcome to the team Steph Ann!

The captain thing seems to be iffy for us all. I'm doing some renovations at home so I'm unpredictable for when I'll be online (plus I rarely can check while at work).


message 24: by Steph Ann (new)

Steph Ann | 1063 comments If someone else would be able to handle posting the shelf announcement, I can handle keeping track of what we're all reading as well as requesting our stamps. Shelf announcements will be made during dinner time here, so that's the only thing I wouldn't be able to be on top of. :-)


message 25: by Nici (new)

Nici (queennici102) | 666 comments shall we agree on books for one books for all as name?


message 26: by Nici (new)

Nici (queennici102) | 666 comments melissa and steph ann i think co captains would be fabulous! has anyone chosen their free space books yet


message 27: by Melissa (new)

Melissa Davis | 605 comments Okay, great!

Steph, will you please update our team name to: One for Books, Books for All (is this where I ask that? or another thread?)

Steph Ann - co-captains sounds like a good plan to me.

I am on Eastern Std Time, so I will be driving home when the shelf announcement is made (6 pm for me) but I can post as soon as possible. Also, I know I will be delayed on posting for 8/16 - my daughter's only Wednesday volleyball game this season.

Done :)


message 29: by Melissa (new)

Melissa Davis | 605 comments thanks!!


message 30: by Steph, Road Tripper!! (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 27153 comments You're welcome :)


message 31: by Steph Ann (new)

Steph Ann | 1063 comments We officially have a name! Yay! :-)

I think I know what I'm reading for the free space, but I need to double check that it will work. My kids should be taking their naps in an hour, so I'm going to check then. The 4 month old can be stubborn though, so we'll see lol.


message 32: by Steph Ann (new)

Steph Ann | 1063 comments The boys are actually being pretty well behaved as they eat lunch, so I was able to verify my free space book is on the group bookshelf. So I'm going with Kiss of a Demon King (Immortals After Dark #7) by Kresley Cole for my free space read.


message 33: by Melissa (last edited Aug 09, 2017 12:21PM) (new)

Melissa Davis | 605 comments lol! I remember those days! Sophia was always worried that she was going to miss something - even now at 11, bedtime is still an ordeal!

I think I know my free space book, too. I've been putting off book 5 of the Elemental Assassin series. No time like the present!

BEST OF: Urban Fantasy Series, #9, found here


message 34: by Steph Ann (new)

Steph Ann | 1063 comments I love the Elemental Assassin series! I'm all caught up and have been thinking of starting over at the beginning.


message 35: by Steph Ann (new)

Steph Ann | 1063 comments I've lucked out with two really good sleepers in my older two boys. This new one though is throwing me for a loop lol. He fights sleep so hard!


message 36: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 22975 comments That's me to a T, always hated having to go to bed. I still don't like going to bed, once I'm there I don't want to get up. LOL.


message 37: by Diane ~Firefly~ (new)

Diane ~Firefly~ | 858 comments Thanks for being co-captains Steph Ann and Melissa! If I see a shelf call not posted, I'll do so to help out. :)


message 38: by Steph Ann (new)

Steph Ann | 1063 comments Thanks, Diane! :-)


message 39: by Diane ~Firefly~ (new)

Diane ~Firefly~ | 858 comments First Shelf Call Kindle Freebie

Diane ~Firefly~ | 858 comments Steph Ann wrote: "I love the Elemental Assassin series! I'm all caught up and have been thinking of starting over at the beginning."

That is an amazing series. I think I'm finally all caught up for now. I also highly recommend her YA series (Black Blade and Mythos Academy)


message 41: by Diane ~Firefly~ (new)

Diane ~Firefly~ | 858 comments I've started reading these two books (one kindle, one paperback)

This one for the Kindle Freebie Shelf
Crux (Southern Arcana, #1) by Moira Rogers

And this one for Free Space (on group bookshelf)
Texas Gothic (Goodnight Family #1) by Rosemary Clement-Moore


message 42: by Steph Ann (new)

Steph Ann | 1063 comments Diane ~Firefly~ wrote: " I also highly recommend her YA series (Black Blade and Mythos Academy) "

I've been meaning to give her YA series a try but haven't gotten around to it yet. Maybe one will fit a shelf for Bingo. :)


message 43: by Steph Ann (new)

Steph Ann | 1063 comments For the Kindle Freebie shelf, I'm going with Zombie, Inc. (Zombie Inc, #1) by Christine Dougherty . I've had this for ages and just haven't gotten around to it. No time like the present!


message 44: by Melissa (new)

Melissa Davis | 605 comments Thanks for posting the shelf call, Diane! My sister & my mother-in-law both stopped by right when I got home. Busy night!

I updated our master list. I've been seeing Texas Gothic a lot lately - you'll have to let us know how it is!

Nici, have you decided on anything? Need help choosing?


message 45: by Nici (new)

Nici (queennici102) | 666 comments i am on my phone at the moment but i am going to read stained by ella james for kindle freebie. i am not sure how to format it correctly on my phone


message 46: by Nici (new)

Nici (queennici102) | 666 comments i will dead blood debt by shane silvers for free space. it was licated in group book shelf. again, i apologize for lack of format. i dont know how to do it in my phone.


message 47: by Melissa (last edited Aug 09, 2017 07:15PM) (new)

Melissa Davis | 605 comments No worries, Nici, I'll update it on the master list.

I'm going to try Prince of Wolves by Quinn Loftis on pg 2.


message 48: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)


message 49: by Melissa (new)

Melissa Davis | 605 comments Sandra! I thought you were gone!! Your name disappeared from our roster & I thought you might have switched teams since I didn't see your dropout request. Glad that you are still here!

Is that your Kindle Freebie or your Free Space book?


message 50: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 22975 comments Haha, that's Nici's FS book.
