Steph (angel4492) | 29020 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)
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 (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

Michelle (michelle_mc) | 2158 comments I am really looking forward to this round, I am Michelle and I have a one-click addiction, free books are my kryptonite and I am so happy to have an excuse to read some of them :)


message 7: by ~Leslie~ (new)

~Leslie~ (akareadingmachine) | 1224 comments Hello Team!! And Hi Michelle!! So glad we are on another team together.

I love Bookshelf Bingo and am really looking forward to reading some of the freebies that have piled up on my nook and kindle. I'm an official member of the one-click support group.


message 8: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 23887 comments *Waves hi to Michelle & Leslie* Preethi & Dragana hopefully will be along shortly.

Sweet, we've got genuine participaters on our team :)

I could probably say the same for the other teams, but I won't as this is OUR team. LOL.

Team name time and does anyone want to be captain? There's only a short time till the game begins, so we better get thinking.


message 9: by ~Leslie~ (new)

~Leslie~ (akareadingmachine) | 1224 comments Hi Sandra!! I'm excited as well about our team. It's nice to know that we are all strong readers and players.

The only thing that comes up for a name is Three's Company. I'm terrible at names but happy to go along with anything.
I will have to opt out as captain. too much going on in my life at the moment. But I'm happy to help in any way.


message 10: by [deleted user] (new)

Hi Team! (I'm here, I'm here, Sandra) Glad to be a part of another Bingo round! It would be wonderful to read at least some of the freebies that have been piling up on my kindle!

I do not want to be captain, either. My brother is getting married in a fortnight, and life's too crazy right now.


message 11: by Michelle (new)

Michelle (michelle_mc) | 2158 comments We do seem to have a good team this time around. I must admit I smiled a lot when I saw your names.

I am horrible with picking names to be honest, maybe something with Triquetra in it? I kinda like that word.

I'm not fussed on being Captain, if anyone wants it they are welcome to wield the whip.


message 12: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 23887 comments Well, unless Dragana wants to be captain, I'll do it, I've had plenty of practice after all. LOL.

As to names, I'm pretty crap at it too.

Three's Company
Triquetra
Power of Three
Charmed
Threesome
Trifecta
Tried and True

????
You've gotta do better than those.


message 13: by Dragana (last edited Oct 28, 2014 02:21AM) (new)

Dragana (diaryofthebookdragon) | 323 comments Hi team. It's good to see some familiar faces. :)

I would like to skip being the team captain if possible. I have a 8 months old kid, so some days I may not be too quick to respond. But don't worry I always find time to read. :D

I am looking forward to this challenge. Maybe I will finally make a dent in a pile of Kindle freebies I accumulated. Although so far, I just have a better excuse why am I downloading them. For the challenge, you know, ... :D

Whenever I don't have inspiration for names I borrow them from Stephanie Plum series:
Three to Get Deadly
Three to Score
or...
Triple Threat
Triple Play
...


message 14: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (last edited Oct 28, 2014 03:44AM) (new)

Sandra | 23887 comments OK. That's me for el capitan duty.

Start naming your fav names people, or add more to the list.

ETA: If you want, you can list your Freespace Freebie ready for Wednesday :)

message 19: by ~Leslie~ (new)

~Leslie~ (akareadingmachine) | 1224 comments I can see that this challenge is going to be very dangerous. When I saw what Michelle posted I thought "I haven't heard of that freebie! Why don't I have that one!"


message 20: by Michelle (new)

Michelle (michelle_mc) | 2158 comments LOL! Book 2 is FREE also - Sweet, Decadent Fire (Breath of Darkness, #2) by Candice Stauffer - not that you need any encouragement... ;)


message 21: by Dragana (new)

Dragana (diaryofthebookdragon) | 323 comments As Leslie said, maybe this challenge was not such a good idea. We will see if my pile of freebies will be bigger or smaller by the end. :D

As my free space I will read - Her Mad Hatter (Kingdom, #1) by Marie Hall . Kindle Freebie from 'SOS eVantage' category.

2nd one isn't free for me :(

Yep, I hear you Dragana.


message 23: by Michelle (new)

Michelle (michelle_mc) | 2158 comments :( That's not fun.

Yeah, my hopes of a smaller tbr at the end is dwindling quickly.


message 24: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 23887 comments Maybe we can shorten the tbr by removing the crap ones. LOL


message 25: by Dragana (new)

Dragana (diaryofthebookdragon) | 323 comments Sandra wrote: "Maybe we can shorten the tbr by removing the crap ones. LOL"

You are right Sandra. I didn't think about that angle. :)


message 26: by [deleted user] (new)

I'm still searching for my free space read. I'll let you all know once I choose something. Right now I cannot think of any team name at all. But maybe something with 'free' in it, since this is the first FREEBIE BINGO after all?


message 27: by Michelle (new)

Michelle (michelle_mc) | 2158 comments Sandra wrote: "Maybe we can shorten the tbr by removing the crap ones. LOL"

Now there's an idea!


Power of Free?


message 28: by Dragana (new)

Dragana (diaryofthebookdragon) | 323 comments I like Preethi's idea about incorporating word freebie in group name.
Maybe Freebie-jeebies?
Power of Free also sounds good.


message 29: by ~Leslie~ (new)

~Leslie~ (akareadingmachine) | 1224 comments Either one sounds great!


message 30: by [deleted user] (new)

Freebie-Jeebies sounds good to me:)


message 31: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 23887 comments I like Power of Free as it is like a nod to the Charmed Ones & implies 3.


message 32: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 23887 comments Still looking for my freespace choice as well.

Me too, I was thinking of Charmed.


message 34: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 23887 comments I'm assuming the shelf posts will be the middle of the night for me, so just post what you're going to read and I'll update them when I get up :)


message 35: by Michelle (new)

Michelle (michelle_mc) | 2158 comments It probably will cause I think it will be late afternoon for me, I won't get much reading done tonight I don't think but I will choose my books and get started on them first thing tomorrow :)


message 36: by [deleted user] (new)

If everybody else is okay with Power of Free, then I'm okay with it too.


message 37: by Dragana (new)

Dragana (diaryofthebookdragon) | 323 comments Me too. :)


message 38: by Michelle (new)

Michelle (michelle_mc) | 2158 comments Shelves are up, happy hunting! :)

message 47: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 23887 comments Opal Fire (A Stacy Justice Mystery, #1) by Barbra Annino
Week 1: B
Read: 30/10/14
Rating: 3 ★★★



This was very entertaining in a slap-dash, chick-lit sorta way.

Stacy Justice is a reporter in a small town with lots of quirky family and neighbours. She is dating Leo, the local Sheriff and is a reluctant witch.

The book opens with a massive fire at her cousin Cinnamon's bar. There is a mystery and Stacy is determined to get to the bottom of it. Regardless of how many bodies keep turning up.


message 48: by ~Leslie~ (new)

~Leslie~ (akareadingmachine) | 1224 comments I think that's what I gave the book as well, Sandra. I have the next one to read but I've been in no hurry.

Happy Halloween, everyone!!


message 49: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 23887 comments Yes I've got the next one as well Leslie, freebie of course :)

Happy Halloween!


message 50: by ~Leslie~ (new)

~Leslie~ (akareadingmachine) | 1224 comments Free Space
Because of Jacqueline by Cynthia Pomranz
11/1/14 3★

Review:This story started out strong for me and I enjoyed getting to know the characters. The storyline of internet dating is something I've dealt with in real life with friends and so I was excited to see how it would work out here. Unfortunately, the strong start began to lose steam about halfway through, though I continued to enjoy parts of the story. But the characters felt a little flat and the story action contained so many mundane activities. But it was a good first novel and I look forward to reading more by this author.
