Lee (leeman729) | 828 comments This is my reserved comment, though I'm not sure how we're going to format these haha.

Super pumped for this, I'm so glad I ended up on your team, Niki haha!

When do we start counting points, and when does it end?

You're talking to the queen of formatting, lol. I'll have a template before we start. I'm thrilled you're on my team! The competition will commence 1/1/2018. We might go the whole year or start fresh quarterly, depending on how it goes.

So 12 books in 2 days? Just read all books until the last 5 pages? lol

Anne would like to know if it's too late to join? She's Ravenclaw btw...

Technically yes, but if she'll take a minute to fill out the questionnaire on the signup sheet we might add people before the start date, depending on how things go. And there are usually people who sign up who don't show up haha.

Silvana (silvaubrey) | 1769 comments Checking in!

Looks like the right House.

I am not good with spreadsheet I think I will make a separate shelf instead.

Sweet! Thanks for the check in. :) all of our tracking can be done in this thread, so don't worry about a spreadsheet or shelf unless you just want to create one.

Silvana, all the tracking will be probably done here.

My spreadsheet will be for me to keep track of the books I am already scheduled to read, if they are for challenges and when I could add more books. I have a slight obsession with lists. 😶

So far I couldn't think of anything, Niki. My brain is fried this week. :(

I knew. I just KNEW you were going to be the one to notice that before I had a chance to fix it. ;P

Timelord Iain | 15507 comments I was trying to find a cool book related team name to suggest to Margret this morning and failing... the best I could find online were Book Club names and they didn't quite work... so I was on the lookout for one already when yours came along...

The Bloody Eagles is pretty badass. It'll also be a good curse for me to yell when your team taunts mine haha.

Niki Hawkes - The Obsessive Bookseller | 7203 comments Mod
That facepalm moment when you realize you've been spelling tome wrong on your blog and all the forums for years. It was that solicitous comment in the welcome thread that clued me into my mistake. Too late haha. Makes me wonder what else I've been spelling wrong lately.


message 36: by Timelord Iain (last edited Oct 06, 2017 08:00PM) (new)

Timelord Iain | 15507 comments I thought you wrote Tomb Raider on purpose... like the Lara Croft games/movies...

They're practically homonyms... "toom"/tome

I thought they were spelled the same haha. I've also been pronouncing it wrong.

Thanks Zaara! Welcome to the team. :D

Zaara | 4188 comments Yeah, sorry this was so late Niki. I funked up my notifications big time and never get alerted on anything but that's fixed now. I'm checking out the different challenge threads.
By the way, I'm in on the trash talk too. I'm guerrilla attacking at least expected moments...I need the element of surprise xcuz I don't have much staying power on the TT front.

Haha sweet! I need all the help I can get. My trash talking is rubbish. And no worries, we're still waiting on a few others to check in.

lol that's okay, we'll let our reading numbers talk for us!


message 48: by Zaara (new)

Zaara | 4188 comments As Liz Bennet famously said, we shall save our breath to cool our porridge. If rereads count, (do they?) I'm soooo gonna stack em up. I do double time on those. Plus I'm saving Stormlight and the last two ASOIAF books for after Jan. Those books are big mothers.


message 49: by K L (new)

K L  | 342 comments I am quite smug about buddy reading the rest of The Wheel of Time books in 2018 - a few fat ones in there!

Justin | 24 comments Does this count as me checking in? :) My notifications are all messed up for group discussions apparently. Having to find them all the hard way!
