Jane (PS) | 21348 comments 1. Introduce yourself to your team. Let your team members know where you are from. This is a great to know when categories are announced and when team-mates can expect other members to post their book choices.

2. Team Captain - reserve a couple of posts in this thread tracking your team's book selection and completion. (Alternatively they could convert a chat comment to the tracking post/s.)

3. Name your team. Using this round's theme of GILBERT & SULLIVAN, come up with a fun name. We are an open/public group with no age limit, so please make sure any chosen name is smart, not smutty ;)

Please PM your name to Jane(PS) by 5 September.

4. If you have a private profile, please 'friend' your team-mates. This is really important, because without this, your team-mates can't see your shelves to select a books under option 2.

5. Please post your book selections/completions in the format provided below. (This format is also posted in both the Q&A and Sign-Up threads.) We need to know the week that each book corresponds to, the page numbers, and how the book qualifies including links to lists/shelves (where applicable), etc. I can't stress this enough. When in doubt - link it*!

* don't link to your review in your completion post - reviews in your completion posts should be included in full in that post.

You don't want to start reading a book and then find it doesn't meet the requirements because some information (eg page count or theme link) was missing from your original post.

I will be monitoring this and your book will not be considered complete until I am satisfied that your selection and completion posts comply with the format rules of the challenge.

Remember - you can ONLY change your book selection in the week that the theme is called.

6. You MUST check in with your team each week, ideally once the theme is announced. Please let your team know if you expect to have spotty communication or are on holidays or having an operation.

7. When you post the completion of your book, you must post a review; enough for us to know you have actually read the book. Please don't link to a review. You must post the review in this thread.

8. Re-reads are allowed but you can't read the same book twice within this challenge.

9. There is no prize for the winning team - bragging rights only :)

10. Each week, the theme will be announced in the Q&A Annoucement thread. The full list of themes announced during this round will be maintained in msg 1 of that thread.


The Rule on the Pass Option
* Each team can only have ONE member using their pass each week.
* Each member can only use that pass once each 5 weeks.
* This means that one or two team members (dependent upon the size of your team) will miss using a pass in each 5 week block.
* No-one can use the pass option in the last week of the challenge.
* In the final week if Option 2 is used, members must select their book from another team. This will be advised in the week 11 announcement.

Slytherpuff Hello Everyone

jenny (ynnej405) | 353 comments Hi Team!

I'm Jenny and I'm really looking forward to playing with you :) This is my third round of PtP and how funny, Carmen, you've been my captain each time :)


message 12: by jenny (last edited Sep 01, 2018 09:10AM) (new)

jenny (ynnej405) | 353 comments I'm not good at team names. But I thought I would google some songs of G&S and try to come up with something.

There's a song called "I Have A Song To Sing, O!" - Maybe we could do something like "We Have A Book To Read, O!"?

Or there's another one called "Stay, We Must Not Lose Our Senses" - so maybe something like "Read, We Must Not Lose Our Senses"?

I'm really not familiar with G&S so maybe these are lame, lol.

As I read this: "Read, We Must Not Lose Our Senses", I was thinking it was going to be "Read, We Must Not Lose Our Glasses"!!

Hi Suzanne! Lucky you, I'm in Germany, so no holiday for me. I hope you had a nice holiday weekend!

☼♎ Carmen the Bootyshaker Temptress ☼♎ | 2001 comments Hi Suzanne. Welcome to the group and Happy Labor Day. I hope you're enjoying your weekend

We're going to have a BBQ today with the kids and hopefully enjoy the pool as well. It's going to be a hot one today.

So I think we might just have found our team name unless someone else has another name they'd like to suggest. LOL

message 32: by Jane (PS), Moderator (new)

Jane (PS) | 21348 comments I sent a PM to Himanshi yesterday. Go ahead and sort with whichever name you prefer. If H doesn't turn up, I'll post in the thread to see if anyone else wishes to play :)

Himanshi (annie_0175) | 187 comments Hey guys! I'm Himanshi (or call me H, whatever you prefer) and I'm from India. This is my first time doing this so please bear with me. This funny thing happened to me just 2 hours before Jane sent me a message, I was checking for an update for this challenge and since I didn't found any I thought it might take some time. So sorry for being MIA!


☼♎ Carmen the Bootyshaker Temptress ☼♎ | 2001 comments I do too. Think it’s catchy. Hahahaha. I can just see myself forgetting my reading glasses 😂🤪


☼♎ Carmen the Bootyshaker Temptress ☼♎ | 2001 comments Hi Himanshi. Welcome to the group. No worries on being a first timer you’ll catch on quick and if not, some of us veterans will help out 🙂

Jane (PS) | 21348 comments Captain's call - its a very minor tweak.

~ the glasses are certainly applicable to me when I need to read without my kindle!!

After I have finished reading the book, what should I do?

message 49: by jenny (new)

jenny (ynnej405) | 353 comments Looks good to me (well you copied my post, haha)

This is the right place, you don't have to post somewhere else.

When you finish you make another post and instead of "Selection Post" you name it "Completion Post". In the Completion Post you can keep the beginning (week #, bookcover/booklink) and instead of "Page number" and "How it qualifies" you put "Rating" and "Review". I hope that makes sense :)


message 50: by jenny (new)

jenny (ynnej405) | 353 comments Enjoy your book - I really liked that one :)
