Hi team!


Anna 'Bookbuyer' (bookbuyer) | 22812 comments Mod
So I'm pretty sure that I know all of you and have been on a team with most of you before. ^-^


Anna 'Bookbuyer' (bookbuyer) | 22812 comments Mod
So lonely. No one else has made any thread yet and y'all are not here yet. :(


Anna 'Bookbuyer' (bookbuyer) | 22812 comments Mod

So what I understand is we can use one book for the same letter no matter how many times that letter appears? So I'm just do a quick planning here until an SS is made. :)

It is then your team's job to fill in the letters on your board. You can do this by doing the following:
- Read a book of your own choice
- Make a note of the first letter of each word in your chosen book's title and author's name.
(Eg: Desires of the Dead by Kimberly Derting would give you 'D', 'O', 'T', and 'K'.
True Love and Other Disasters by Rachel Gibson would give you 'T', 'L', 'A', 'O', 'D', 'R', and 'G'.)
- Choose which ONE of your letters you would like to use for your book (so for Desires of the Dead you might choose 'O')
- Post your review for your book on your team's review thread along with your chosen letter. Eg:

- Please note:
* Your team will only need to read one book per letter, no matter how many times it appears in your current board. So for 'Sweet Evil', you could read Everneath, and cross all 3 E's off with that one book.
* You must use the original title for your chosen book, you may not use alternate editions for this challenge.

Melanie (lovebeingvegan) | 12049 comments I made a spreadsheet. I hope it is helpful for us. :)

message 20: by Anna 'Bookbuyer' (new)

Anna 'Bookbuyer' (bookbuyer) | 22812 comments Mod
* When choosing titles, please note that only the original title counts. This means that books which have titles which are not made up of English letters will not count. It also means that for books which were originally published in a different language, such as Ruby Red, or The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, those would also only count for their original titles - Rubinrot, and Män som hatar kvinnor respectively.


message 21: by Anna 'Bookbuyer' (new)

Anna 'Bookbuyer' (bookbuyer) | 22812 comments Mod
* When choosing titles, please also be aware that if your chosen title contains an colon ':', only the words before the ':' will count.

So I've inputted all my BRs into the SS since all of them are in the first week or so. One of them is the GBR so I could move it to the end if need be. :)

Melanie (lovebeingvegan) | 12049 comments I have 7 planned BRs so far, but I haven't put them all in the current board because I'm not sure where they would be most helpful. I did put them in the second sheet (the TBR list) on the spreadsheet, though. :)

Hoping the same thing. I love challenges like this, because they really push me to read as fast as I can. :D

Same. I have a shelf I'm focusing on but I keep changing it. I have no hope of getting to all of them but I like to have variety and I need some wiggle room with this challenge. :)

Fine with me. :) I think if anyone finishes a book and there isn't a spot open that works, it should be okay to switch books around and make them work. :D

So I've decided to cave and do more BRs so we can get more points. I'm making up a shelf now and will post here first and then on the wanted br thread if I still want more. :)

Linaria | 2190 comments yeah Im good whenever


message 47: by Lara (new)

Lara (Bookish_turtle) | 833 comments How long do we think it will take us to complete the first board? Because I would suggest that we only fill in the spreadsheet for books we plan to read in the first few days, and putting more in as we get to them whilst the month progresses. How many days worth of books do you think we should put in initially?

KK. Mirage doesn't come out till towards the end of the month so I will figure out a date for that in the morning. As for Hullmetal I think towards the beginning of the month might be good. I'll take a look at what we need for the puzzle. :)


message 49: by Melanie (new)

Melanie (lovebeingvegan) | 12049 comments Lara, I plan on having at least three books done that first day, as they are shorter reads. :)


message 50: by Anna 'Bookbuyer' (new)

Anna 'Bookbuyer' (bookbuyer) | 22812 comments Mod
So how about 28th for Mirage and we can do Hullmetal girls sometime in the second week like the 6th?
