Steph (angel4492) | 29012 comments Note: This is the only team that has 9 vs 8 players. Even though there's one extra member, the rule re: qualifying for a shelf stamp remains the same for you - seven members must post their read date, ★ rating and review. And, all nine members must read, rate and review a book for your team to achieve your FREE SPACE stamp.


Happy Reading! :)


Diane ~Firefly~ | 908 comments Yay! I'm so excited for round 2. Jen and I were on team 1 last time and we managed to come in 2nd place, so here's hoping for first this time :)

So, does anyone have ideas for team names? I'll throw out a couple, but I'm not that great at it.

One for the Money
All for One, One for Bingo
Bingomatrixes of Books
One Book Closer

message 9: by Thenia (new)

Thenia | 976 comments I'm happy to join you all! This will be fun!!

I like "One Book Closer" as a name, too.

"Bookfreak" is something my friends call me sometimes so I'm throwing it in the suggestion box, too, if you're not offended by the "freak" part, that is :P


Christina (AKA Babbling) (babblingbookreviews) | 1241 comments Ever since Steph named this go-around "R2", my mind keeps wanting to name it "R2-D2" -- the real hero of Star Wars. ;-). "R2-T1" doesn't have the same ring to it.

I'm liking "One Book Closer".


message 11: by Steph, Serious series addict (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 29012 comments LOL Christina! Love that R2D2! :D

So do I. Note to self: Find and unpack R2 Christmas ornament and put next to laptop as mascot for challenge..:)


message 13: by Steph, Serious series addict (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 29012 comments :D Cute!


message 14: by CyberAlmu (last edited Mar 01, 2011 07:02PM) (new)

CyberAlmu | 302 comments Hi girls, maybe you could use the idea that you're 9 in the group.. or that your group is larger than the rest, to play on a name for the team.

Edit: just been thinking of 9-people famous groups and came to Tolkien. How about The Fellowship of the Book?

Good luck in the challenge!


message 15: by Laura Lulu (new)

Laura Lulu (lauralulu) | 1603 comments Lol! Good idea CA. :)

8 Isn't Enough
Nine Lives
Nine is Fine (lol)

Sorry. Those are all stupid. Great idea from CyberAlmu, poor execution from Laura. ;)

I'll keep thinking.


message 16: by Laura Lulu (last edited Mar 01, 2011 07:08PM) (new)

Laura Lulu (lauralulu) | 1603 comments Christina--too bad we're not team 2, that would be super cute, R2-T2. :)

I thought the same thing when I made the comment. :)


message 18: by Lili (new)

Lili | 297 comments Hola hola pretty ladies, so happy to be on this team!

ooohhh I can't wait to start!, I'm still not sure if I know how to play but I'm telling you... I've got a good feeling about this!


message 19: by Steph, Serious series addict (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 29012 comments Welcome to the group and the game, Lili! You're bound to have fun with it. No worries about the rules, it'll come to you quickly and you have a great team to help ya along the way.


message 20: by Laura Lulu (new)

Laura Lulu (lauralulu) | 1603 comments Hi Lili! Bingo is super easy--you'll pick it up right away.

We made it to the Caymans & the wifi works, but it's slow as molasses. I should have figured they didn't have crazy fast internet here. :) so I'll stick my head in here throughout the week. I'll send a message to the other girlies tomorrow night if we haven't heard from them by then. Otherwise, I'll be back here over the weekend to see the first shelf announcement. :)


message 21: by Laura Lulu (new)

Laura Lulu (lauralulu) | 1603 comments And we need to pick a name before this weekend also, so put your thinking caps on. ;)


message 22: by Lili (new)

Lili | 297 comments All right... you can't say I didn't try.
I'm terrible at picking names but I wanted to give the team some fun choices and some with numbers… also, baseball teams have 9 players too so maybe we could use that.

FYI, from reading some of the other threads, it looks some people are MIA, so we might not have 9 team members if they have to fill spots elsewhere.

message 27: by Steph, Serious series addict (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 29012 comments Hey now! I suggested Victorious Secret for my team too. Too funny! :D

message 32: by CyberAlmu (new)

CyberAlmu | 302 comments glad you're liking The Fellowship, ladies!

BTW Thenia, I have that same pic on my MSN! So whenever I read your comments it immediately comes to my mind "I don't remember posting here..."

message 35: by Diane ~Firefly~ (new)

SHe's the funniest character I've seen in a while!! She's so cute and crazy. I love her!


message 37: by Steph, Serious series addict (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 29012 comments "One Book Closer" - that's cool. One book closer ... to winning? ;)


message 38: by Laura Lulu (last edited Mar 05, 2011 04:28AM) (new)

Laura Lulu (lauralulu) | 1603 comments My vote is for One Book Closer--that seems to be the most popular. So is that cool with everyone else? My team last round was also the last to pick their name. Oh, well. ;)

Steph should be posting the 1st shelf today, her Sunday in Japan comes about 13 hours before my Sunday in the US. :)


message 39: by Steph, Serious series addict (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 29012 comments Still pending a name for Miss Judithe's team too, so no worries ONEders. :D (Ever see that Tom Hanks movie? "That Thing You Do" the band called themselves the ONEders)

Laura Lulu (lauralulu) | 1603 comments Hey, I didn't say she'd be posting it NOW, but it's 8am Saturday here (7am at home), so she'll be posting it sometime today for me, right? Right??? ;)

And why were you holding out on us Steph? I love the name the ONEders. Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?


message 43: by Steph, Serious series addict (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 29012 comments :) Yeah, that sounds right, it should be sometime today for you.

Just now thought of it. Glad you like. :)

Judithe | 6408 comments LOL...I'm also not voting but do love SSBB's Oneders....


message 47: by Steph, Serious series addict (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 29012 comments Important Rule Change: All members of your team must read, rate and review a book in order to receive a shelf stamp

Let the game begin!

Our First Shelf is: 'part-of-a-series'
DIRECT LINK: 'part-of-a-series'

Good luck & Happy Reading!

REMINDER: Everyone may now start their free space read as well, if they want


Christina (AKA Babbling) (babblingbookreviews) | 1241 comments At this point, we should just call ourselves the "Nameless ONEders". ;-)


message 49: by Thenia (new)

Thenia | 976 comments I love ONEders and the "Nameless ONEders"! ^^
And we've got our first shelf!!!
