So, it has been suggested that we do a group read and I think it's a great idea! There's very few of us, but we could still have fun with it. :) Do we have any nominations?


Sandi *~The Pirate Wench~* (thepiratewench) | 548 comments Mod
I nominate Pirateby Connie Mason Im asumming we are to nominate only one right Jana?


Jana at ThatArtsyReaderGirl.com (miss_jana) | 89 comments Mod
People can nominate several and then the group could vote in a poll! Sound good?


Sandi *~The Pirate Wench~* (thepiratewench) | 548 comments Mod
Sounds good Jana...so III nominate 3 more:
My Timeswept Heart The Pirate Lord Desire in Disguise


Sandi *~The Pirate Wench~* (thepiratewench) | 548 comments Mod

SmittenKitten | 129 comments Hi everyone!

A group read is a great idea.. perhaps make it monthly?

Just another suggestion... maybe there should be a "introductions" thread or something like that?

@Sandi - I saw your post about this group in the BR group... so you've recruited at least one new member :)

A pirate trilogy I didn't know about?? My goodness!

How shall we go about voting on the first group read?


message 13: by SmittenKitten (new)

SmittenKitten | 129 comments Maybe narrowing it down to 3-5 books and then have a group poll?

I would like to second Pirate, The Pirate Lord, and Fortune's Mistress.

And I nominate Master of Seduction, Thief of Hearts, Swept Away, and The Maiden's Revenge.


Sandi *~The Pirate Wench~* (thepiratewench) | 548 comments Mod
That sounds good SmittenKitten..what do you think Jana? and maybe start it mid-oct? love your choices here too.. Im going to have to do a pirate shelf like you, your so organized!


Jana at ThatArtsyReaderGirl.com (miss_jana) | 89 comments Mod
Sounds good! I know there's a poll feature on here, so we'll narrow it down in the next few days and post a poll. It might just be us three, though. lol.


Sandi *~The Pirate Wench~* (thepiratewench) | 548 comments Mod
Well..3 is better than none..Ive invited some friends..hope they will join in...


message 17: by Joeera (last edited Sep 27, 2010 04:48PM) (new)

Joeera  | 29 comments second Fortune's Mistress

I would like to nominate

The Pirate Bride


Sandi *~The Pirate Wench~* (thepiratewench) | 548 comments Mod
Dont forget Jana..if an older book gets chosen..some of us need a time period to find/buy that book used.
Living in Canada..can take me up to 2-3 weeks for it to get here! Also post along with the chosen book..certain used book stores/on-line were it can be bought thats a help as well.

Joeera  | 29 comments Why don't you try good will stores find a couple around where you live and every onces in a while go and take a look at what they have. I live in canada as well and i usually get my books at good will stores. Or when i go to toronto i get them from there i never go on line to get my books that pirate troligy that i bought i got thoses from ST.lAUTENT that's where i work a side from thoes i got 50 other books all for 99 cents


Sandi *~The Pirate Wench~* (thepiratewench) | 548 comments Mod
I do have a few used book stores close by but they will no longer take any books past the year 2009! the reason is they dont make any money on the older books so they dont want them wasteing shelf space..really makes me mad..there are those of us who still like & read the older books! I also have 2 thrift stores a half an hour away..sometimes I get lucky..sometimes not:( I have had good luck with amazon used books..you can buy a good-very good book for 1.00 and only have to pay the shipping of $6.00...but its not always easy to find what you want. Im 50 min from downtown toronto..I could go there but Im not keen on the big city.

Joeera  | 29 comments Depending where you live i know 3 used book stores near christy subway i now this because i go there all the time when i go to toronto my brother used to live aroung there.


Sandi *~The Pirate Wench~* (thepiratewench) | 548 comments Mod
Im in Richmond Hill..I havent been downtown in many..many years..I dont know any of the streets down there. I do know how to get to the Eatons Centre..& walk up to Edward st. to the Worlds Biggest Book Store but books being too $$ new I havent been in a long time..where is Christy subway?


message 23: by Joeera (new)

Joeera  | 29 comments From the eaton center you go north get off at young and bloor then you go west and it's about 4 or 5 subway stops. If you want i could get you the address.


Sandi *~The Pirate Wench~* (thepiratewench) | 548 comments Mod
That would be great!! thanks Joeera would you know the name of the store?


message 25: by Joeera (last edited Sep 26, 2010 01:56PM) (new)

Joeera  | 29 comments If i remember one is called bmw books and the other two i don't remember any i will be comming down to toronto around the 28 of october and i will get you the address then.I could also get you the phone numbers


Sandi *~The Pirate Wench~* (thepiratewench) | 548 comments Mod

message 27: by Joeera (last edited Sep 27, 2010 04:53PM) (new)

Joeera  | 29 comments I just bought a bag of books.When i come down to toronto i will get you the phone numbers. there are a couple of used book stores with the name bmw books the one i'am talking about is on spidana


Sandi *~The Pirate Wench~* (thepiratewench) | 548 comments Mod
Sounds good Joeera Thanks :)


Jana at ThatArtsyReaderGirl.com (miss_jana) | 89 comments Mod
Are there any volunteers to take care of the group reads? I'm so busy with my two jobs that coordinating is tough, and I worry I'll never get around to it... Anyone interested?


Sandi *~The Pirate Wench~* (thepiratewench) | 548 comments Mod
I thought you have to be a "MOD" to do that?


Sandi *~The Pirate Wench~* (thepiratewench) | 548 comments Mod
Well since there isnt that many ladies/books for the group read..maybe a buddy read? I can take care of that Jana..but a group read you have to do a poll & pictures of the books & send to each member to respond to and I think only the mod can do that?
but I can do the buddy read if anyone is interested?


message 32: by SmittenKitten (new)

SmittenKitten | 129 comments What if we narrowed down the list to like 3-4 books (of those that were nominated) and then we can pick whichever one (or more than one) that we read and report back on the group discussion?? At least just to get us started for the first group read... when we get more people, then we could do the poll.

What do yall think?


Jana at ThatArtsyReaderGirl.com (miss_jana) | 89 comments Mod
SmittenKitten, we could definitely do that.

Sandi, I was just thinking you could narrow down the list and give me the titles. Then I can make the poll. That won't take me long at all.

I don't really care which way we go. If we want to do really informal reads for now until we get a larger group, that's fine with me!


Sandi *~The Pirate Wench~* (thepiratewench) | 548 comments Mod
Ok this will be the ones..one from each of us..and one I randomly picked as the 4th
1st book:
Pirate byConnie Mason
2nd book
The Pirate Brideby Shannon Drake
3rd book:Thief of HeartsbyTeresa Medeiros
and random book:Her Master and CommanderbyKaren Hawkins


Sandi *~The Pirate Wench~* (thepiratewench) | 548 comments Mod
So Jana we will see how the vote goes..if there isnt 2 votes on one book or more..then III do a buddy read on one of the books. anyone wishes to join me may do so. but we have some new members so they may vote still..


Jana at ThatArtsyReaderGirl.com (miss_jana) | 89 comments Mod
Sounds good!


message 37: by SmittenKitten (new)

SmittenKitten | 129 comments So do we have a poll yet to vote on the group read? :)


Sandi *~The Pirate Wench~* (thepiratewench) | 548 comments Mod
I was wondering myself SmittenKitten...I gave Jana the picks..I think she plans mid-oct to post?


Jana at ThatArtsyReaderGirl.com (miss_jana) | 89 comments Mod
Oh, whoops! Didn't see! Sorry! I'll get the poll going... as long as I can figure out how. :P


Sandi *~The Pirate Wench~* (thepiratewench) | 548 comments Mod
Thanks Jana! it worked just fine :)


Sandi *~The Pirate Wench~* (thepiratewench) | 548 comments Mod
Jana..whatever happened to the Jan group read? are you going to have one? not much happening here?


message 42: by SmittenKitten (new)

SmittenKitten | 129 comments Pirates are hot... I can't believe more people have not joined this group!! I'm open to attempting another group read... it's just a shame we don't have more members to join in on the fun.


Jana at ThatArtsyReaderGirl.com (miss_jana) | 89 comments Mod
I totally forgot about the January group read! I've been dealing with some serious breathing issues, and have been going to specialists... doing special treatments... I totally forgot about the group read we were going to do!

I am sad we don't have more members... Anyway, I'll put a topic up for Jan. nominations. :)
