Kristie | 3345 comments Are we each choosing a spot and updating the message with new reads? It seems that it would be easier for Logan to keep track of if each new update got it's own post instead of trying to figure out which books were added when a message is edited.

Ooh good question. I was just going to update my list kind of like a reading challenge.


message 11: by Kristie (new)

Kristie | 3345 comments I'll do it whichever way, but when you edit a message it doesn't leave a notification or anything.

We could put links to the posts on the first page though. The truth is that it doesn't matter which way we win... ;)

Logan (loganturner) | 1499 comments This space essentially serves as a double check against the spreadsheet, so I think either way we post gets that done. I'll be checking here and the spreadsheet daily regardless of notifications, so however is easiest is fine with me.

Kristie | 3345 comments Could we add the point system somewhere at the top of the thread? That would make it a bit easier for us to keep track of point, I think, instead of having to look it up. What do you think?

Logan (loganturner) | 1499 comments That's a great idea! I will PM Sonia and see if she can add it in one of the Mod account spots at the top.

Kaora, what did you think of [book:Hyperion

I'm almost ready to start adding completed books. Should finish a couple within the next couple of days. Can't wait to add one to my completed list!

Yay! Trust me the 20 pointers count a lot. All the points count a lot! Btw, I am having so much fun with this challenge. It makes me feel like my reading actually matters somehow lol

Logan (loganturner) | 1499 comments Hey team! Can I ask a huge favor? ~Melissa~ is a goddess and has posted links to her comments in her BRs. This makes it super easy on me to check for me and our mod Sonia to check for participation.

Can you update your posts with a link to a comment you have made, or DQs you posted, so that we can easily find your part of the discussion. There's obviously back and forth, so just a link to one of your comments is fine.

If you don't know how to link to it, this post walks you through it step by step.

I loved Hyperion. The stories were well done I felt and I can't wait to read book 2. Did you read the whole series?

Perfect!

The one downside to putting all these links is that we'll reach the character limits on our posts much faster.

I really wish there weren't those character limits. I understand the purpose of them, but I started a bunch of challenges before I even realized that existed, and now I'm stuck with one post that won't last very long. Kind of a pain. I figure though, when there's a second page, you can just link to your second post on your first one? lol I dunno that's my slapdash solution.

And I have this weird thing about the way my posts look...I want them to be pretty which somehow trumps the character limit for me. Just weird, I know.


message 35: by Logan (new)

Logan (loganturner) | 1499 comments Yeah, I plan to just link to my later posts in the first one. I'm like you in that formatting trumps squeezing in more books. :)

I agree! Also, I'm not being indulgent...I have an obligation to my team to read more than usual! lol

Kristie | 3345 comments Finished Big Little Lies and participated in the buddy read. I will link to some discussion as soon as I figure out how. I have about a zillion posts. lol

460 pages (50) + BR (30) = 80 points!

Edit:
Ok, so I figured out the link. In my post with my updates (# 14), under "buddy reads", the links will bring you to the example posts. I will also add the links to posts, like this one, as I go.

Big Little Lies BR

For audio books, the default Goodreads version is the page count you will use. So when you search for the book in Goodreads, whatever version it takes you to for the book page, that's the page count. For this book, you get 496 pages.

I have read the first three books. I need to reread them in order to read the last one. I really like how it has all the religions and cultures and how it all ties together. I found it fascinating.

I thought the story ended up better than it started out. Really liked it.

Kristie | 3345 comments Just finished Queen of Babble for 20 points! Kind of feel that I deserve more than 20 for that one! lol I almost gave up at 20% in because the narrator was was so needy and pathetic that she was grating on my nerves, but I hung in there for those points!! It ended up to be an ok book and I gave it a generous 3 stars for growth. :)


message 47: by Kristin (new)

Kristin | 840 comments Logan - if we do a series read do we he buddy read points for each book in the series? You may have already answered this but I just wanted to double check.


message 48: by Kristie (new)

Kristie | 3345 comments Kristin - If you discuss each book with a person that is not on your team, you get the points for each book discussed.


message 49: by Kristin (new)

Kristin | 840 comments Awesome! thanks Kristie! That's what I thought but I wanted to make sure before I go giving myself 30 extra points :)
