Steph (angel4492) | 29020 comments Sign up is now CLOSED! Thanks to all who signed up. We are looking forward to the challenge. :)

Teams have been randomly chosen and posted below. Team threads have also been created. Stop by your team's thread to hook up with your teammates and check out your BINGO card before we begin on Monday, 11 Oct.

And, be thinking of your hot team name! :D

Please don't hesitate to pop over to the Q&A page to ask any questions you might have before we get started.

Steph (angel4492) | 29020 comments Those not 100% into it ... YET! I'll post all our "maybes" here. I'm hopeful that we'll be able to lure you into playing along with us. :)

In order to create teams and get everyone's BINGO cards ready to start on 11 Oct, we will need to know by Wed, 6 Oct if you want to be a player or a spectator. Thanks!


Maybes, Join us next time!

:) I'd like to close sign-ups by Wed, 6 Oct, so that we can assign teams and create the BINGO cards for each team. Then, we'd be able to start the challenge/game by 11 Oct or so.

HK, if you're still interested, game's on! Pop over to join your group, the "G.L.O.B.s" . :D


message 41: by Steph, Serious series addict (last edited Oct 21, 2010 04:24PM) (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 29020 comments Update for all teams:
@ 12 Oct I sent a reminder email to the players/members who have not yet commented on their teams' thread

At the end of the week, we will re-evaluate the # of members on each team and post rule changes to make "the playing field" balanced for all teams.

No worries, ladies, READ ON! And, I love the team names everyone's come up with so far. We certainly are a creative bunch! :D


10/15/10 Update:
Vivian has joined Team #5: The Furious Five, in place of Marianna. :D

10/22/10 Update:
Sarah has joined Team #2: The G.L.O.B.s, in place of Cher. :D


message 42: by Steph, Serious series addict (last edited Oct 15, 2010 01:15AM) (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 29020 comments UPDATE: Rule Change
Change effective immediately

Due to Team 2, The G.L.O.B.s, being short one member, I am changing the required reading needed to achieve "shelf credit" down to FOUR books.

Each team member is still required to read a book for each shelf.

New Rule: As soon as FOUR books are read, rated & reviewed, that team will get credit for that shelf.

Please let me know if you have any questions regarding this change. Thanks & Happy Reading!


message 43: by Lara (new)

Lara (elbe) | 14 comments Awwww......so wished I could have committed!! I currently have a huge project going on at work and have fallen behind on all my FUN lately :(!!! You guys have fun and maybe I'll get to join if there's a round 2??


message 44: by Steph, Serious series addict (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 29020 comments Sounds good, Lara! Good luck with your project. We look forward to you joining us next time.


message 45: by Steph, Serious series addict (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 29020 comments UPDATE for all teams:
Attempting to recruit 2 add'l players

I've posted an announcement here opening up the challenge to two more players who would take the place of ~Hershey's Kisses~ (Team #2) and Lovely Little Love (Team #4) who have been unable to participate and/or non-responsive since their initial post in October.

If you know of someone interested, please let me know. You, or they, can send me a private message to discuss it further. If no one joins, we will still be able to continue on since only 4 out of 5 members need to read, rate & review a book for each shelf. But, I'd like to get each team up to 5 members, if possible. So, I figured it was worth a shot.

Continued Happy Reading to all our players! I thank you for playing along and hope you are having fun with the game/challenge! :)
