How Answering Work
0-5 key pegs may be given on a turn.
For each peg that is the correct color but in the wrong location, a white key peg will be placed.
For each peg that is the correct color and in the correct location, a black key peg will be placed.

Book Requirements:
❀Must be 100+ pages
❀May be read in any format (print, ebook, audio, etc.)
❀Manga, Comics, graphic novels, cookbooks, etc. are not allowed.
❀You may reread a book for the challenge, it's not preferred but it is allowed. The book must be read in it's entirety, not just skimmed. You may not, however, reread a book that you used already for this challenge.
❀All books used for the challenge MUST be started AFTER the team decides what their guess is going to be. If you realize a book you've already started would be a perfect fit for the challenge, you may restart it and then it will count - but only if you restart it.

Dawn (baseballblondie) | 1180 comments hey guys! looking forward to playing with you. with my crazy schedule right now, I cannot be captain.

Melanie (lovebeingvegan) | 9592 comments Mod
Hi everyone! I'm looking forward to starting this game.

I was thinking there are a couple different ways we could decide our first guess:

1: We could all just pick which color works best for us and then combine them for the guess
2. We could pick a color, as a team, and then all read a book for that color, hence either eliminating that color or finding out how many there are of said color.

What do you all think?


message 8: by Kimberly (new)

Kimberly (ksnapier) | 670 comments I like either suggestion


Angie ~aka Reading Machine~ (wolffaerie17) | 337 comments I've never played this before. So I'd rather not be captain. I like both suggestions. Whatever the team decides works for me.


message 10: by Dawn (new)

Dawn (baseballblondie) | 1180 comments I'm also fine with either way.


message 11: by Fairlee (new)

Fairlee Corkran | 16 comments I Like the idea of us reading different colors but I m fine with either decisionl HI I M HERE


message 12: by Melanie, ✞Moderator, Avid Reader, & Blogger ✞ (new)

Melanie (lovebeingvegan) | 9592 comments Mod
Yay! Glad we're all here! I can be captain, since no one else wants to. Because we are all fine with either option, I say we each just pick a color based on our next read for week one.

I'll be reading Vines of Entanglement by Lisa Carter , my color choice is Black.

Once we all decide our book/color, we can submit our guess and start reading! :)

Dawn (baseballblondie) | 1180 comments The Trouble with Patience (Virtues and Vices of the Old West Book #1) A Novel by Maggie Brendan This one should pass for Blue.

Yep! It works two ways -- one the cover and two the author's last name starts with "B". :)

Yippee!! Just to clarify, I know we can't start the book before the challenge, but am I to wait till the entire group submits the guess? I haven't started yet, but I just wanted to know.


message 23: by Melanie, ✞Moderator, Avid Reader, & Blogger ✞ (new)

Melanie (lovebeingvegan) | 9592 comments Mod
Yes, we have to wait to start our book until our entire team submits its guess.

Angie ~aka Reading Machine~ (wolffaerie17) | 337 comments Did we get the clue or did I miss that part? I updated my earlier post to a different book.


message 26: by Melanie, ✞Moderator, Avid Reader, & Blogger ✞ (new)

Melanie (lovebeingvegan) | 9592 comments Mod
Angie, we'll get the clue once we submit our first guess. If you click the spreadsheet (message 2), you'll see it's blank right now. Megan will give us black, white, or no pegs depending on the accuracy of our guess and then we'll continue guessing to try and completely solve it. Hope that makes sense :/


Angie ~aka Reading Machine~ (wolffaerie17) | 337 comments I think so.

Rule Change
Melanie and I discussed how choosing colors should work and decided that as soon as a player confirms the color they are choosing (and their team agrees) they can begin reading that book. After choosing a color, you may decide to read a different book than you originally planned - as long as the new book was started after your decision.

The guess at the code will still be submitted once all players have decided, but this way you don't have to wait to start reading :)

We post that we finished the book (with a link to said book), the date we finished, our rating, and our review (can be short!).

message 42: by A.M. (new)

A.M. Heath | 69 comments I expect to finish Monday, if not sooner. :)

Is it too early to start putting in for our next book? I assume, I wouldn't be able to read it until everyone has finished this round. But is it possible to claim a color and select a book? Lol The planner in me is ready to look out into the next round. It's okay, if I can't. I just thought I'd ask. :)


message 43: by Melanie, ✞Moderator, Avid Reader, & Blogger ✞ (new)

Melanie (lovebeingvegan) | 9592 comments Mod
I'm a planner too, so I know exactly what you mean. :)

I'm sure you could unofficially choose your next color, but you might not want said color depending on the answer for our first guess (for instance, if none of the colors are right, which is highly unlikely, then we know not to do any of those colors again).

Oooohhh that's true! I completely forgot about that. Lol You can tell this is my first time. ;) I'll get it together...eventually.
