Cherie (crobins0) | 20715 comments Team name suggestion: The Finders


message 3: by Casceil (new)

Casceil | 2695 comments Perhaps: 4tune Finders. I like it when our team number is embedded in our name.

Almeta (menfrommarrs) | 10553 comments 4Tune Hunters? Couldn't resist. Just spying!


message 5: by Casceil (new)

Casceil | 2695 comments Almeta, I had considered that. I think I might prefer 4tune Seekers. Less bad connotations.

Janice (jamasc) | 51971 comments Hi Teamies. I'll be home tomorrow night and can possibly start gophering then. It looks like a fun Toppler.

I tried to do that too, but could not let my mind go far enough! Perfect!

I have been gophering through my ebook titles. Most of the book are too long to really fit. I have a sack of books from my daughter to go through, and my real life bookshelf covers to go through.
So far, I have Holes by Louis Sachar for hat. Doc by Mary Doria Russell which could be hat or chair. Which jumps out? It is a little long though.
I have As Meat Loves Salt by Maria McCann for hands,
Family Honor (Sunny Randall, #1) by Robert B. Parker for gun, Graceling (Graceling Realm, #1) by Kristin Cashore for sword,
Merle's Door Lessons from a Freethinking Dog by Ted Kerasote for dog,
Drizzle by Kathleen Van Cleve for umbrella, The Universe Versus Alex Woods by Gavin Extence or Storybound (Storybound #1) by Marissa Burt for tree


message 13: by Janice, Moderator (new)

Janice (jamasc) | 51971 comments I'm home but I don't have much energy. I'll maybe do some preliminary gophering once I catch up on reading the threads.


message 14: by Laura (Lclwags) (new)

Laura (Lclwags) (lclwags) | 600 comments Headed to the library after work today to do some gophering! I've been trying to read Midnight at the Bright Ideas Bookstore by Matthew J. Sullivan for awhile now, so this might be a good time to start over and finish it!
Does it matter if we read the same book as someone else on the team?


message 15: by Janice, Moderator (new)

Janice (jamasc) | 51971 comments Laura, different team members can read the same book.


message 16: by Casceil (new)

Casceil | 2695 comments I am having trouble finding books I want to read for this one. Looking, I've realized that cozy mysteries tend to have cluttered covers, and literary novels tend to have more abstract covers. So far I have Fowl of the House of Usher (A Bird Lover's Mystery #7) by J.R. Ripley for bird. I'll keep looking. There are always cat books.

Hi Laura - I listened to this book on audio last week and thought it was an interesting story. The audio was very good and it was pretty short.


message 18: by Cherie (last edited May 30, 2018 12:01PM) (new)

Cherie (crobins0) | 20715 comments Caceil - I know what you mean. My first book will probably be The Professor and the Madman A Tale of Murder, Insanity and the Making of the Oxford English Dictionary by Simon Winchester because I can use it for my ZZ challenge. I am not sure about the rest fitting. I think I have used up all of the slots that they will fit on. Holes (Holes, #1) by Louis Sachar will be a re-read, but I love it! My daughter sent me four ebooks that I have to download from my email. Eaters of the Dead by Michael Crichton for dragon, Infected (Infected, #1) by Scott Sigler for eye, Safe Haven by Nicholas Sparks looks like for the bicycle - but it screams more for flowers to me, and Dumb Witness (Hercule Poirot, #16) by Agatha Christie for the dog.


message 19: by Liz (new)

Liz   (lizvegas) | 504 comments Hi team! I’ll start gophering later today, since my house has not yet learned how to clean itself :)


message 20: by Laura (Lclwags) (new)

Laura (Lclwags) (lclwags) | 600 comments Liz, if you figure out how to get it to clean itself, let me know please! My husband has been travelling for work, so I'm on my own with the chores. It's crazy how much of a mess 3 dogs and a lazy roommate can make in a week!


message 21: by Janice, Moderator (new)

Janice (jamasc) | 51971 comments I have Practical Magic as a possibility for my challenge read. It would fit for "shoe":
Practical Magic by Alice Hoffman .

It's short enough too - 289 pages. Woot!


message 22: by Cherie (new)

Cherie (crobins0) | 20715 comments I downloaded The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger last night. I will listen to it as my audiobook entry for the toppler.


message 23: by Janice, Moderator (last edited Jun 02, 2018 08:40AM) (new)

Janice (jamasc) | 51971 comments Does anyone want to take on the role of scorekeeper? It should be fairly straight forward this time. I don't think we even need a spreadsheet, just a running total since it's a simple calculation - 10 points per book.

Also, have all our team members checked in? Casceil, could you edit message 1 and put the names of the members of our team?

Team 4:
Janice
Cherie
Casceil
Marie Claude
Pragya
Laura (Lclwags)
Liz
Sharon

Thanks. :)


message 24: by Janice, Moderator (new)

Janice (jamasc) | 51971 comments I've gophered and now it's just a matter of narrowing down which books I want to read. I think I can do 5 books. I'm aiming for 3 audiobooks and 2 ebooks.


message 25: by Laura (Lclwags) (new)

Laura (Lclwags) (lclwags) | 600 comments I'm also aiming for 5 books. Starting with Shatter Me (Shatter Me, #1) by Tahereh Mafi for eye. Then going through as many of these as I can. Tree Broken Promises (Mary O’Reilly Paranormal Mystery #8) by Terri Reid Book Midnight at the Bright Ideas Bookstore by Matthew J. Sullivan Ballgown The Selection (The Selection, #1) by Kiera Cass Mason Jar The Mourning Hours by Paula Treick DeBoard


message 26: by Liz (new)

Liz   (lizvegas) | 504 comments Don’t forget me! :)
I joined late. I should be able to read at least three books.


message 27: by Cherie (last edited Jun 01, 2018 12:16PM) (new)

Cherie (crobins0) | 20715 comments I think I might be able to keep track of a running score. I have never done it for a toppler before. If no one objects, I will set up a reporting thread.


message 28: by Sharon (new)

Sharon (alynor) | 298 comments And me! Also a late join. I'm usually good for 3 or 4 books. This time 3 may be my limit since none are very short.


message 29: by Casceil (new)

Casceil | 2695 comments Welcome, Liz and Sharon. I've added your names to our team roster at the top of this thread. Any one else out there I don't know about?

Cherie, that is wonderful that you are willing to keep score for us.

Cherie (crobins0) | 20715 comments Casceil wrote: "Cherie, that is wonderful that you are willing to keep score..."

I figured that I could keep track of a list of books and multiply the number by 10 for the overall points. I am just not good with the spread sheet stuff and the graphics I'll give it a try, anyway.

I am hoping to get in 5 books, maybe 7. I have Monday and Tuesday off from work. I needed a couple days of vacation and Monday is my oldest daughter's birthday. I want a chocolate cake and that is what she is getting! I may even bake it myself.


message 31: by Janice, Moderator (new)

Janice (jamasc) | 51971 comments Welcome to the team Liz & Sharon. Glad to have you join us.

I think you have it covered, Cherie. Thanks for stepping up.

message 33: by Marie Claude (new)

Marie Claude (mariecg2001) | 1013 comments Ok, realistically, I don't think I can really read more than 4-5 books...

After the answers I received here are some of the books I will try to fit in next week...

I might end up reading totally different books, but we'll see :)


message 34: by Rusalka, Moderator (new)

Rusalka (rusalkii) | 17854 comments I was super excited when I saw your gophering Cherie, as I have The Universe Versus Alex Woods as well, and was annoyed I missed it in my own hunting. Apparently I have the alternate cover, The Universe Versus Alex Woods by Gavin Extence , so there goes that plan. /sigh


message 35: by Janice, Moderator (new)

Janice (jamasc) | 51971 comments Twenty minutes to go! Woot. Woot.

I'm starting with As You Wish: Inconceivable Tales from the Making of The Princess Bride.

Janice (jamasc) | 51971 comments The toppler has started! Happy reading everyone. Don't forget to come up for air every now and again and post your progress.


message 38: by Liz (new)

Liz   (lizvegas) | 504 comments Happy toppler day! I am starting off with See What I Have Done by Sarah Schmidt See What I Have Done. Ive always had a fascination with Lizzie Borden. I get to read most of the day today, so i should be able to finish this one before the Vegas Knights hockey game! :)


message 39: by Janice, Moderator (new)

Janice (jamasc) | 51971 comments I'm about 40% in, I think. I had a light snack for lunch and I'm feeling groggy. I think I'll make a Chai Latte. Between the caffeine and the sugar, I should be fixed right up.


message 40: by Cherie (new)

Cherie (crobins0) | 20715 comments Hi all. I have been out of wifi range until now, but still reading my first book. I am about 40 % done.

I am switching over to my audiobook to go chop at the blackberry bushes in my side yard for a couple of hours, until the direct sun hits over there.

Keep reading and post any finished books over in the reporting thread.


message 41: by Janice, Moderator (new)

Janice (jamasc) | 51971 comments The first book is in the bag! I finished As You Wish: Inconceivable Tales from the Making of The Princess Bride for SWORD and posted in the reporting thread.

After I catch up on messages in the group, I'm going to seek out Billy Crystal's outtakes on YouTube.


message 42: by Casceil (new)

Casceil | 2695 comments I finished Fowl of the House of Usher (A Bird Lover's Mystery #7) by J.R. Ripley for bird. It was not very good. But at least it is likely that whatever I read next will be better.


message 43: by Janice, Moderator (new)

Janice (jamasc) | 51971 comments I'm hoping your next book is a better read, Casceil. Things can only improve, right?


message 44: by Casceil (new)

Casceil | 2695 comments I'm about a third of the way through my second book, but I am heading to bed now.


message 45: by Pragya (new)

Pragya  (reviewingshelf) | 3628 comments I am reading Left Neglected by Lisa Genova for hand/eggs. With a lunch invite today and an interview tomorrow, this might take a while.
