Steph (angel4492) | 29004 comments Welcome to the game, Team 4!


A big HI to all our R2 newbies. Welcome back, Vivian & Daffodil! I'm looking forward to reading with you guys.

Are you guys excited?! I am! Our first shelf announcement will be on Sunday. YAY!

Some of you are new to the group, as well as the game. It's great to have ya here! Welcome!! I know you will have a great time with the game. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask. It's much easier to play than it might seem.

Once the first shelf is announced, pick a book from any page of the shelf, then come back here to let us know what you'll be reading. Once you've finished, let us know when you finished, how many ★s you gave it and what you thought of it.

Everyone's encouraged to pop over here throughout the game to chat. It's a great way to get to know each other better. I'm looking forward to it! :)


So, any thoughts for a team name? :D

message 27: by Vivian (new)

Vivian (_vivian) | 1934 comments I'm here!! Sorry for being MIA, was a little busy stuffing my face with all the fantastic NYC foods and vacationing without internet (I know, in this day and age, still have a dumbphone, I'll upgrade one day, probably...) If anyone is going, no joke, I have a spreadsheet of yummy food I can share from my trips there. (Not obsessed or anything, lol, just the OCDemon in me...well, and my faulty memory, gotta keep track of what's good for next time)

So excited to be back and ready for R2 of BINGO!!! Can't wait to get reading with y'all :D

Love May the 4ce Be with You. Has it been shortened to 4ce B with You?

Also think Bingo Flamingos is fun. I'm a sucker for anything that rhymes! Or Serial Killers...or Four Corners...too many choices, anything is good, I'm easy, lol.

Oh, and hi everyone! *waves*


message 28: by Steph, Serious series addict (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 29004 comments Hiya, Miss Vivian! :D Glad you had fun in NYC. Welcome back!

My fault on the name, no it's not been shortened, just missed the first bit when typing it out. I like them all and will be happy with whatever ya'll decide on for our name.

These two have the highest votes so far -
May the 4ce B with You (5)
Victorious Secret (2)

Eeny, meeny, miney, moe ..... :D

message 31: by Steph, Serious series addict (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 29004 comments LOL Vivian! "even if I end up adding a book or 5 to Mt. TBR along the way"
