(Your ss was made for your convenience and teamwork. If you choose not to use it or prefer to make your own, that is your teams choice. This spreadsheet will not be updated by a mod it is strictly for team member use only. Please let Felicia know if you have any questions, but this should be self explanatory.)

For this challenge, we will be picking one overall winner to pick a book from the prize lists (chosen at random for fairness)! At the end of our Vacation Quarterly Challenge there will be one winner that wins a prize of getting to choose a book from bookdepository.com. They can pick any book up to $10. For this to happen, we will be combining the points from the two month Pageopoly challenge, this Disney challenge, and our Vacation Quarterly together to pick that winner.

I have edited all team spreadsheets to have the new members (if you have had someone new added) in there. If and when new members are added to a team they can go into their teams SS and use the instructions to add their name to their teams SS. :D

HELLO EVERYONE! We, the mods, wanted to let you know some things for this upcoming challenge “point-wise”. So, for graphic novels they will ONLY count for 1/4 page points. Doesn’t matter what character you are on, they will just be page points. Screenplays or verses will count for 1/2 the page points. Then we wanted to be nice and creative because we think if you can find a retelling that fits the character that you are reading for - well, you get an extra point! If you have any questions about the upcoming challenge please go to our Q&A thread and a mod will answer your question in a timely manner 😊

Wolf (Alpha) | 125 comments Hi everyone. I don't know anyone except for Jamie and Book. Looking forward to meeting everyone else.


message 20: by Jamie (new)

Jamie Hi wolf! Long time no see!


message 21: by Wolf (Alpha) (new)

Wolf (Alpha) | 125 comments Hey Jamie. I could say the same. Am I good to add a tab to the spreadsheet?


message 22: by Wolf (Alpha) (new)

Wolf (Alpha) | 125 comments I went snooping(like I usually do) and saw that one team had links to lists with the books for the categories for them.


message 23: by Jamie (new)

Jamie I'd check with Book first . I haven't snooped yet lol. And not sure what we are doing with the spreadsheets yet or what our strategy might be.


message 24: by Erica (new)

Erica Paré | 1802 comments Would it help if we put together which books we planned on reading for the month of September and which main and sub category they fall under? I dont recognize anyone in here, but have only done one challenge so far so thats probably why. I am still a newbie lol Also does anyone know what happens if we read more than one book that falls under the same category at the same time? I saw something like all eight subcategories have to be completed before you can start over.

Felicia | 15005 comments Mod
Hi Team Moana! The time has come to announce the characters! Your team's characters are:

Snow White
Ariel
Tiana

Please remember you must start your books after midnight GR time for it to count for a category.

Happy planning! :D


message 26: by Jenn (last edited Aug 31, 2018 10:33AM) (new)

Jenn (tellingmelies) | 2463 comments Ok, how are we doing this? Lol. Are we just placing our names next to the category we can do on the spreadsheet or discussing it here? For the characters we have off hand I know I can do:
Snow White: white cover - A Gathering of shadows
Ariel - takes place at sea - daughter of siren queen

I would say take 1-3 categories you can do depending how fast each person reads. Only claiming a spot we can do right away or within a few days. SO that we are not being held back by someone who isn't going to start for another week.

SO a person who reads maybe a book a week or less I would take at a category at a time.
Someone who gets 2-3 books a week take two
and if you read fast take a third.

Also I advise everyone to take a good look at the descriptions. Some are trickier than others and if a book fits those take it asap to get it out of the way so that others aren't struggling to fill it. But that is just my opinion.

I agree. I'll take a look now and see what I can do. :)


message 29: by Anna 'Bookbuyer' (new)

Anna 'Bookbuyer' (bookbuyer) | 9905 comments I find it hard to remember which categories we have so I have temporarily marked them red so I don't have to keep checking back. :)

Thanks! ^-^


message 32: by Jamie (new)

Jamie Hush, Hush (Hush, Hush, #1) by Becca Fitzpatrick & Howl's Moving Castle are 2 of my books I will be reading soon but I will take a look to see where they fit of if they need to wait.


message 33: by Jamie (new)

Jamie Give me a bit and I will take a look at what I can do :)


message 34: by Jamie (new)

Jamie Okay, I claimed spots for those. I might add another soon but I think I might be a bit slower this first week so I'll start there.


message 35: by Jenn (new)

Jenn (tellingmelies) | 2463 comments Looks like Snow White has 4 categories taken, so just Ariel and Tiana to go :)

message 37: by Nalz (new)

Nalz (nalztothewallz) | 138 comments First off, good luck everyone! And, I only put two books I could read for right now, but later in the month it may be more or less. :)

message 39: by Anna (new)

Anna | 427 comments Hi! I’ve just added myself to a couple of categories which I figured we could get out of the way 😊 Only done two because I’m not too sure how much I’ll get done but will add more if I’m able!


message 40: by Erica (new)

Erica Paré | 1802 comments Dont we have to wait until they give us our 4 characters to do? Or am I misunderstanding this challenge somewhere?


message 41: by Erica (new)

Erica Paré | 1802 comments Sorry 3 characters

message 45: by Jenn (new)

Jenn (tellingmelies) | 2463 comments Question regarding the spreadsheet and I apologize if I've missed it. Are we just filling in spots for the characters we're currently working on? Or are we filling up all of the other spots as well? I just ask because I added a banked books tab for ones that don't fit the current characters parameters but will be used for whatever comes next. But if we don't need that, I can delete it :)

I think just for the ones we have. Otherwise it might get confusing.


message 47: by Nalz (new)

Nalz (nalztothewallz) | 138 comments it seems like the only category left is Ariel now :)


message 48: by Jamie (new)

Jamie I believe there is a third page on the spreadsheet for books that aren’t for a current category as well
