Marythios (AkaSusanne ) | 163 comments Sinful chatter abounds will it be Lust that steams up my book shelf or gluttony rule my universe cause I sure like a challenge. Will greed show my true colors or Envy push me out of my shell to try a recommendation. Will Pride make my bookshelf shine or will sloth hold me back from my true potential. In the end will Wraith allow me to dominate. We will see how my sins are bared for all to see. I will be sinfully delighted to climb the tower.

Vicky (librovert) | 2016 comments I'M SO GLAD THIS IS BACK. I need the motivational push to get some reading in, I feel like I've been in a reading slump all year. ;_;

Christina (chrissy__) | 1492 comments I already made a quick overview of the sins and how books will match them on my phone. I put a macthing coloured emoji from the food section in front of each sin - I guess we all know what my sin is x)

Alysa H. | 3565 comments LOL Christina!

I don’t know what my sin is. Probably all seven.

Melindam | 2086 comments Finally back to a computer where I could sign up! So much looking forward to this challenge.

I can see that all book/reading-challenge Gluttons (including me, of course) are gathering about these Towers of Sins like vultures. ;)

Oh my god, this is a great idea. Now I have to do this.

Mary C (marymaryalwayscontrary) | 4924 comments Debating. This starts the day I leave for my honeymoon. Also wondering how the sins will work. Not a huge YA fan. Is there going to be like a week where we have to read only those books or how does that work?

Also I didn't see the sign up link.


message 37: by Mary C (new)

Mary C (marymaryalwayscontrary) | 4924 comments Well I reread it and so it looks like the answer is no to there being a week of reading YA or whatever.

But we are limited to the parameters set by the sins?

(I'm feeling a bit of challenge burn out of having to read for specific criteria, but at the same time, I love these challenges)


message 38: by Cat (last edited Sep 09, 2019 07:29AM) (new)

Cat (cat_uk) | 6493 comments Mod
Mary, sign up link is in this post

And as always, you can read what you like (meeting the minimum criteria, of course). The sins are where you assign books, so we can see how they are being used. There's no plan for weeks to read just a certain genre. If you don't read YA, that'll be fine!

ETA. Re your second questions: no, you aren't. And if you read a book that didn't fit most of the criteria, there is still the Greed pot, which can be used for books that don't fit anywhere else. :)

ETA2: the three elements for each sin (cover colour / genre / criteria) are independent. If you read a yellow book with space opera genre you can choose where you want to put it.


message 39: by Mary C (new)

Mary C (marymaryalwayscontrary) | 4924 comments The greed pot says the genre has to be dystopia.

But I guess I was reading how to assign book wrong? I read it as the book had to meet all those things, for example in order to be assigned to greed it had to be a dystopian book with a yellow cover, etc.., That was looking like more work than I want to put into finding books right after Wheel of brown, Right side up and Lava.

no! good grief, just how crazy do you think the Chipmunks are?! (no, don't answer that!)

it's a "meet one of the requirements" thing.


message 41: by Alysa (new)

Alysa H. | 3565 comments Do we get bonus points if we find a book that meets ALL the requirements? Because that would be awesome. Not that I have any ideas. I'm just saying.

Also, @Mary: you mean you aren't going to spend your honeymoon reading? ;D

Mary C (marymaryalwayscontrary) | 4924 comments I just spent 2 hours trying to find a book with an official detective/crime fighter with both initials from the word POISON. So....,

that is so frustrating but i find myself doing the same thing to meet requirements it can be so frustrating. By the time you get to read the book you want to fling it across the room cause it does not interest you but you some how power through it and read it cause you need the task done.

Mary C (marymaryalwayscontrary) | 4924 comments I have found several that I am willing to read. But I'm not willing to buy one so and there's a library wait list for most of them, there in lies my problem.

But part of that is also that my local library has a stupid thing where your card expires every year and I have to go in person to renew it even though I am in there regularly to physically check out stuff. Very annoying but I am currently locked out of my local library network and the 6 connected library systems.

So I was only able to check the out of state library cards I have: Brooklyn and Philadelphia.

LOL, I am glad that thing about getting points deducted if you anger the Mods is not in effect yet, or else Cat would be docking me right now!

Every year?! Yikes! Mine is every three years — thank goodness, since I moved out of the county after renewing and am just hoping to move back to that county before it expires again.

Come to think of it....your library probably has that requirement because of people like me. :-|
