Alaina (ameserole) | 51562 comments Mod
so many categories :D
we should probably split them up


message 8: by RainySun (new)

RainySun (sunnyrain) | 875 comments I'm going to attempt to keep track... not 100% sure whats going on up there ^ does it make sense??


message 9: by Alaina, Head of Monthly Challenges & Keeper of BR Threads (new)

Alaina (ameserole) | 51562 comments Mod
haha yes I understand what you wrote completely. I can also keep track too - just in case. I could say we could 6 per person that way 24 is covered for a couple of days. But I don't know how fast of a reader everyone is. So I guess we can just pay it by ear and wait for everyone to check in before we pick our squares?


message 10: by RainySun (new)

RainySun (sunnyrain) | 875 comments Alright awesome. Ya... I think we should probably wait until everybody is checked in, and then after if we could let everyone know what categories we'll be reading that way we wont have too many repeated and ill put down what categories are taken as we go

If you have any category you think you will for sure be starting with you can go ahead a take them


message 11: by Alaina, Head of Monthly Challenges & Keeper of BR Threads (new)

Alaina (ameserole) | 51562 comments Mod
Haha I can honestly read a book for all of the categories. So I'll just take the ones no one wants. I'm a pretty fast reader and I can help out if people DNF a book or something.

Hey guys! Just wanted to update you all on the blocks I just completed: white cover and trees on the cover.

I don't know how busy I'm going to be tomorrow since I officially move the rest of my stuff but I will try and knock out at least two more blocks tomorrow.. if not then by Saturday. I wont have wifi at my new place until the 7th so I will probably have to go to the library or something to do my posts or just dump them all on the 7th. I haven't decided yet. I hope you all have a good night - I have a super busy day ahead of me and I need my sleep asap!


message 32: by RainySun (new)

As of right now:

Circe has completed: Centered around sports - so we need one more book for that.

I have just completed: Book involving travel - so we need one more book for that category as well.

— Massiel [taking a break] (rollitosdecanela) | 455 comments And I Darken (The Conqueror's Saga, #1) by Kiersten White count as "historical novel" or family relatioship? Since is about the story of two brothers

It can fit in both categories :)


message 41: by ~ Giulia ~ (new)

~ Giulia ~ | 689 comments I'm almost done with Raven's Shadow (Raven, #1) by Patricia Briggs which can count for #7 Fire on the cover or #9 About family relationship or #22 Tree on the cover. Are all those categories already taken?
Under which category do you want me to put it when I finish it?


message 42: by Alaina, Head of Monthly Challenges & Keeper of BR Threads (new)

Alaina (ameserole) | 51562 comments Mod
We need two checks for each category. So, you can pick one we don't have a check by or use it for a category we only need one more. It's up to you. I think there used to be people's names next to the category but I don't see it anymore.


message 43: by RainySun (last edited Nov 06, 2017 09:08AM) (new)

RainySun (sunnyrain) | 875 comments #7 and #9 aren't taken, so either one
