Renee (reneeconoulty) | 3309 comments Hi Jubilant Chickadees! I'm your mod mentor. I'll try to "float" around and keep an eye on things, otherwise you can find me in the Soaring Eagles group.
Have fun!


message 10: by K~Terror (new)

K~Terror (k-terror) | 5600 comments Yay - We have a team!! Can't wait to get to know everyone and start the fun!

This is my first Tower Team challenge!


message 11: by V_Nerdbooks (new)

V_Nerdbooks | 4825 comments Mine too so I may need help lol.

Shall we all make sure we have a shelf set up for this thread before we start?


message 12: by K~Terror (new)

K~Terror (k-terror) | 5600 comments Oh yes - good thought!

Here is mine: Tower-Team-Jubilant-Chickadee


message 13: by Renee (new)

Renee (reneeconoulty) | 3309 comments Good idea to set up a shelf now. I think it is easier for the captain to track if people only put books they have finished reading in the shelf. Post links to each members shelf in one of your reserved spots so they are easy to find. The more tech savvy mods are working on a spreadsheet template, so you don't need to worry about that yet, we will give you one soon.

Other strategies that members are using is to start reading a few books now that you can finish after the 8th. Lots of people have planned buddy reads over the next 3 months already, so have a look in the Buddy Read List and see if there's any you want to join, or feel free to request a book too. There is also a Back Room Buddy Read request thread and a private group for those smutty books.

K~Terror (k-terror) | 5600 comments OH - Very helpful!!!! I had no idea you could start reading before the 8th but that it just needed to be completed after the 8th! Good to know! Thanks Renee!

@Vicci - I saw there is a NBRC buddy read for Big Little Lies coming up on the 9th that is calling our name! ;)


message 16: by Renee (new)

Renee (reneeconoulty) | 3309 comments I LOVED Big Little Lies, you should definitely get in on that one!


message 17: by V_Nerdbooks (new)

V_Nerdbooks | 4825 comments Hi Renee,
Thanks for the help, I have a feeling you may be answering a LOT of questions haha


message 18: by V_Nerdbooks (new)

V_Nerdbooks | 4825 comments So is it best to maybe have 2 shelves do you think, 1 for the books that we are planning to read and 1 for the books that we have read?


message 19: by Renee (new)

Renee (reneeconoulty) | 3309 comments It's up to you how you plan it, that could work. I have all my planned BOM and Buddy reads in my phone calendar with alarms to help me remember what I said I'd read and when. You could also claim a post each and list there what you are planning.


message 20: by V_Nerdbooks (new)

V_Nerdbooks | 4825 comments Wow now that is organisation lol


message 21: by Renee (new)

Renee (reneeconoulty) | 3309 comments You should see all the spreadsheets we have behind the scenes!


message 22: by K~Terror (new)

K~Terror (k-terror) | 5600 comments I do have a post with my November challenges & buddy reads -> links and planned books/progress. I just need to add to the Tower Team section now!

I have two books close to done (60-75%) so I will slow those down. And a buddy read that starts today. And two buddy reads planned later this week with Miss V - including Big Little Lies Yay!

message 24: by Erin (new)

Erin (Bluestocking Bookworm) (bluestockingbookworm) | 353 comments Hello my fellow Chickadees! Erin, your co-captain here! I am so excited to have a team and to get started with you all.

Just as a note, I am out of town from tomorrow until the 12th, so I may be scarce until then, but when I get back... OH MAN!


message 25: by V_Nerdbooks (new)

V_Nerdbooks | 4825 comments Hi Erin **Waves**

Sonia (darktalynn) | 10180 comments *snoops in*

Hi Chickadees!!!

*waves*

Kristin, I'm going to start the EIT series this month! I'm a little worried because I get scared easily, but Jenne swears by them so....


message 27: by K~Terror (new)

K~Terror (k-terror) | 5600 comments Oh Sonia, they are soooo good & addictive! I hope you like them!

I think Come Alive was the scariest so you may want to read that one during daylight hours! Haha!

I rated the first book only 3-stars... Just so you know they really pick up from there. I saw there is a darkhouse buddy read too this month. :)

Do we get points for buddy read participation if it's outside of NBRC?


message 28: by Sonia (new)

Sonia (darktalynn) | 10180 comments Kristin ~ Experiment in Terror Junkie wrote: "Do we get points for buddy read participation if it's outside of NBRC? "

Nope!

I can set one here, if you want. I haven't requested it yet, because I'm really, really bad at having too many buddy reads at once, because I tend to start all books and not finishing them. So. I'm trying to behave :)


message 29: by K~Terror (last edited Nov 03, 2014 08:15AM) (new)

K~Terror (k-terror) | 5600 comments I do the same thing with all sorts of buddy reads! LOL! I'm going to plan to participate in the Big Little Lies BR here at NBRC too since Vicci & I have one starting around the same time. One book with two BR groups sounds doable!


message 30: by V_Nerdbooks (new)

V_Nerdbooks | 4825 comments Hmm I may see what BR's there are as I never seem to have enough lol


message 32: by Justin (new)

Justin (rockstarintraining) Ha! I'm a Jubilant Chickadee! This may be the first and last time I ever get to set that. I will set up my shelf tonight and get started. Thus is my first attempt at one of these, and I'm excited to join the party.


message 33: by Justin (new)

Justin (rockstarintraining) Auto correct! Ahhh!!


message 34: by Erin (new)

Erin (Bluestocking Bookworm) (bluestockingbookworm) | 353 comments I have a friend on Mordor Seekers whom I plan to Buddy Read my brain out with.


message 35: by V_Nerdbooks (new)

V_Nerdbooks | 4825 comments lol @ Justin

So glad I have a team now :) I'm new to the group and challenge, but so excited to start.

Justin (rockstarintraining) First time creating a new shelf.... sad, I know.

First time linking to something besides a book.... even sadder...

Here goes...

What is EIT??? :)


message 42: by Snowtulip (new)

Snowtulip | 4439 comments I'm going to jump into the The Lies of Locke Lamora in the next few days. I got a paperback copy from a friend a few months ago and have been waiting for the opportune moment.

Haven't been a part of a question oriented book discussion in a while, so hopefully my brain will kick in ;)


message 43: by Snowtulip (last edited Jan 29, 2015 07:02PM) (new)

Snowtulip | 4439 comments I like to have all my books that I'm planning to read in one post...yes, I know...I also make sure my towels are folded just so...no hope for me!

What..."


Hey Snowtulip! EIT is Experiment in Terror series written by Karina Halle. Although I've read a lot of different series that I have really enjoyed - this romance/mystery/paranormal series was seriously sooooo addicting!!!


message 45: by Justin (new)

Justin (rockstarintraining) Snowtulip, I just joined the buddy read and have been listening to the audiobook. Pretty good stuff so far. Glad you're able to join in.
