message 13: by Anna 'Bookbuyer' (new)

Anna 'Bookbuyer' (bookbuyer) | 9906 comments Since we can only do one square per team we should sign up for one or two squares at a time so we don't overlap. I can try to keep track of it in post 2. :)


message 14: by Rae (new)

Rae Lake | 343 comments That may be a bit hard, even if I sign up for a whole column I'd get that done in 2 days max... I don't want to rush anyone else because I don't have any other squares to fill.... it's just I know everyone reads at different paces.

You can always read more than the two squares and that way if someone is really slow or unable to read their square we have a back up. I'll keep track of the back ups as well. :)


message 16: by Anna 'Bookbuyer' (new)

Anna 'Bookbuyer' (bookbuyer) | 9906 comments I already know that I can't do

2. Read a cozy mystery
20. Read a classic novel
21. Read a book centered around sports

and there are a few others that will be hard but doable. :)

That would be cool but it may be frustrating for the readers that were reading the square already... I'm just thinking if someone is reading a book for a few days and then someone else comes a reads a book in one day... then that one person just wasted those days... IDK, i am not trying to be difficult, I just want to make sure everyone feels they are able to participate. Whatever you guys think is best I'm down with 🙂


message 18: by Rae (new)

Rae Lake | 343 comments I can take 1, 4, 6, and 21 . Let me know if that's cool!

Anna 'Bookbuyer' (bookbuyer) | 9906 comments ***RULE CHANGE***

I may or may not finish it before November. It has over 350 pages.


message 26: by Salha (new)

Salha (salhavam) | 557 comments For the book to count, it has to be read from November 1st. Or you can count the pages read from November 1st as long as it's over 100 pages.

If you only read the last pages during November, it won't count.
