Steph (angel4492) | 28446 comments SOS’ Third Round of Book Shelf Bingo is about to begin!

Thank you to all our members who joined us for our first round of Category Connect 4! I hope everyone enjoyed the game. :)

Book Shelf Bingo is similar to CC4 in that a shelf name is posted weekly and in order for your team to receive their stamp (on their bingo card) all members must read, rate and review their book. But, you will not have to think strategically, Mr. Randomizer will do all the heavy lifting for you.

Once the shelf name is announced, visit the link included in the announcement, choose your book, post your choice on your team's thread and get ta readin'. Once you're done, post your read date, 1-5★ rating and review. When all members of your team have RR&R'd their book, your team will receive a stamp for that shelf on your team bingo card.

The first team to get BINGO (5 in a row - horizontally, diagonally or vertically) wins! It's that easy!

We look forward to returning players as well as newbies joining us for Round 3 (R3)! Please read through the following and sign up in this thread, if you are interested.

If you are a new player: Please take into consideration, before signing up for this team challenge, that your team members will count on you and your steady participation throughout the length of the game.

There is no way to know in advance how long the game will last. R1 lasted 4.5 months and R2 lasted 2.5 months. The shelves are chosen using, so there was a chance the game could have gone on longer.

Teams have their own team thread where members frequently chat about what they’re reading, post reviews and comments. You are welcome to look through the team threads (in our Book Shelf BINGO folder ) to get an idea of how the game flows.

It’s only fair that you consider all of this before making a decision to join us for R3. We want every member, new and returning, to be 110% sure they will be able to stick with their team throughout the length of the game. We are all aware that holidays will be taken, people will have real-life issues that cause conflict, and other issues may cause you to be less active for a certain amount of time. We are all understanding and accommodate our team members during their breaks.

Please read over these threads for more information. Playing the game is easy and not as complex as the directions make it sound. Feel free to ask any questions!

How to: Simplified for quick tips on how the game works
How to: Get Started, Get Playin' & Get Winnin' for full instructions on how to play and win the game
Shelf Annoucements will be made the same way (in addition to announcements on each team’s thread), providing each member with the name of the shelf and a direct link to the GR shelf to choose their next book

Once you’ve read through everything, if you are still interested in joining us for R3, please sign up below.

We will cut off sign-up at 36 players. So, don't delay, if you're interested in joining us! We will have 6 teams with 6 members each. Please feel free to sign-up after the cut-off, if you would like to be on our stand-by list. If someone drops out, I will contact those on the stand-by list to fill in.

MANDATORY: I will be sending a PM to everyone who signs up requesting that you confirm, one final time, if you are in 110% before I randomize players for teams. You will have TWO DAYS to respond to my PM. If you do not or decide to pass, I will PM the first member on the STAND-BY list and ask if they'd like to fill in. I will let you know prior to sending the PM, so you'll know when to check your in-boxes.

Myself, Sandra, Judithe & Laura Lulu are all looking forward to joining everyone for R3! Thank you to all the members who participated in R1+2!! We had a blast reading with you. We hope to see many new faces and returning faces in R3!

I mentioned in the other thread when you were talking about being sleepy that the thread was going up, but I needed three slots (message box 1-3), so wait until they were posted. No worries, it's all good.

Dana (erato) | 922 comments ...Dana quietly slinks off into a quiet corner to suck her thumb and rock back and forth repeatedly until inspiration strikes...

You would think this would be easy for me...I am Erato. I am the freakin' muse of erotic poetry for Pete's sake! Bingo is apparently not erotic enough.

....resumes sucking thumb and begins rocking faster
