2. After signing up period is over, participants shall be put in different groups

3. Each group will be given a set of books

Anna 'Bookbuyer' (bookbuyer) Sounds great! :)


message 11: by Gisbelle (new)

Gisbelle | 27299 comments Great to hear that :D We might limit the number of participants since we don't want too many groups in case a lot of people are interested. Maybe 30 people just like when we do Blind Date Challenge.


message 12: by Vicki (new)

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments If you limit the sign ups to 30, how large will each group be? Three?

Oh, okay. I didn't even think of that. OMG! LOL



message 21: by Gisbelle (new)

Gisbelle | 27299 comments :) That's why you need me around lol

Anyway, we don't want too many groups as it would be too much work for us, and we want at least 5 members in each group so that after we assign books for each group, it will be a lot of fun to decide who will read what :D

I can't wait to see who all will be in my group! LOL


message 23: by Gisbelle (new)

Gisbelle | 27299 comments :) I'll finish up a report (boring!) for my boss and will start the thread soon

Yeah, that's why I wondered because 10 in one group sounded like WAY too many, but 3 sounded like too few. I guess that's why I don't teach math. LOL So I'm exposing myself here. I just never considered that option. So that is ONE reason why I need you around! I can think of MANY, MANY more!


message 25: by Gisbelle (new)

Gisbelle | 27299 comments You'd better treat me right then :D I demand a raise lol


message 26: by Vicki (new)

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments Okay, I get it! Here is your raise: (((hugs))) and more (((hugs))) and still some more (((hugs))). That's more than monetary value, right?


message 27: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new)

Trisha | 31440 comments since we are grouped, when should we start our books/be done with our books?
and do we post read/rating/review info in our team thread?

My team is all happy with our books so we won't be dropping or swapping!! yay! great picks!


message 28: by Gisbelle (new)

Gisbelle | 27299 comments You guys may start the books, and reviews (optional) and rating should be posted in your group thread.

That was really fast :)


message 29: by Vicki (new)

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments Gis, how did you come up with all the books? I added a few to my TBR shelf because I didn't have enough already. LOL


Jessica (The Psychotic Nerd) (goldenfurproductions) | 1046 comments How long do we have to read our books?


message 31: by Gisbelle (new)

Until March 31 as we planned. But if every group finishes sooner, we might start another round right after that.

Just another one of my many great talents lol.... Seriously though, I just tried and added some books I thought interesting :) I haven't read any of those books, I think.

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments Well, you certainly got a good variety! I haven't read any of the books assigned to any of the groups. Lol Great job, Gisbelle! :)
