Steph (angel4492) | 28164 comments Hiya, Team Caps! Thanks for volunteering to guide your team through a round of BookShelf Bingo!

Your job, should you choose to accept it, will require a few things:
1 ~ Be our go-to person should we have any questions about your team
2 ~ Organize your teammate's weekly reads for each shelf/category so that the BSB Ninjas can quickly and easily verify and approve your stamp request(s)
2a ~ Create a master list in a post (preferably on the first page of your team's thread) and update it weekly or as often as necessary
2b ~ Post your team's stats on the Captain's Log prior to requesting a stamp
3 ~ Encourage and motivate your team (you may also ask to borrow Judithe's whip whenever necessary)
4 ~ Post regularly to ensure your team is communicating and on track each week
4a ~ Send them a PM and friendly poke if they haven't posted at least once a week, noted their book choice, and/or appear to have dropped out of webspace
5 ~ Send us a PM (Steph, Sandra or Judithe) should you need us for any reason throughout the game

Sandra | 23482 comments Nope that's not how it works Midu. It's the shelves that give us bingo.

Looking more closely at the Free Space requirements. Can you please explain the shelves winning us bingo thing?

Okay, so Sleepy Hollow won't work. Will find another book.

Midu Hadi | 1732 comments Ha! Tempting Danger (World of the Lupi, #1) by Eileen Wilks will work, right?


message 36: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 23482 comments If you look at the Bingo Card at the top of our thread you'll see 25 squares with Free Space in the middle. Each team has a different bingo card.

Each square has a shelf name. Each week I'll be posting a shelf and just like in real life bingo (they use numbers) once we've all read & reviewed the book, we'll get a stamp on that square. Bingo is achieved when we get 5 squares in a row, vertical, horizontal or diagonally.

So it all depends on which shelf Mr Randomiser calls as to who can win Bingo, plus if all the people read & review their books, of course.

It'll be easier to see once we've had a couple of weeks of playing :)

The Trouble with Tigers (Shenanigans, #2) by Gail Koger by Gail Koger
Date: 20/9/19
Rating: ★★★★

Once again we have an action packed over the top story with a heroine who can talk to and control animals of all kinds & sometimes see ghosts and a Homicide cop who has grown to love her. Our heroine has a reformed hitman for a dad & a ditzy mom who loves Christmas and dresses as an elf everyday of the year.

The above sounds silly but its anything but. A rollercoaster ride that just never stops. Mix in Pakistani terrorists, animal cruelty activists and a CIA agent who borders on going rogue and Dutch has his hands full trying to keep Kandi alive and breathing.

Always really enjoy Gail's writing, long may it continue!

Archangel's Shadows (Guild Hunter, #7) by Nalini Singh
3 stars
20th September 2019

I've noticed that the pattern's changing for the books in this series. The previous one did feature Elena and Raphael as the lead couple. Yet, it also peeked at other relevant things that went on with other people. But in this one, we are shown an even broader view. Sure, we get Janvier and Ashwini's POVs, but we also read parts in Dmitri, Elena, and Felicity's voices. I like this 360 view and more than that, I liked that it leaves less room for all the sex parts.

(view spoiler)
