Steph (angel4492) | 28248 comments HiYa! Hope everyone is excited about R3! Looking forward to reading along with you guys. Go, Team 7!

I'll be thinking about team name suggestions and post some ideas soon. Anyone want to be team captain? Someone to track our books. I'd prefer not to, if someone else wouldn't mind. Uni is keepin' me pretty busy these days. But, not to worry, I'll have no problem reading a book a week. :)


message 7: by Regina (new)

Regina (reginar) | 2883 comments I have never played before, so I probably shouldn't be team captain -- basically, monitor the thread, track books and post updates?

So excited -- so waiting for Sunday to get started. :)

Daffodil (daffodil--ripcranberry) | 2098 comments Steph, my good ole Bingo Buddy. This time we're gonna win. I can feel it in my bones. LOL.


message 10: by Daffodil (new)

Daffodil (daffodil--ripcranberry) | 2098 comments Team name suggestions. Just throwing out ideas. I'll be brave and get the obvious one out of the way first.

The Seven Dwarves
Any takers? No? I'm not much for whistling while I work either. (JK. If anyone really feels strongly in favor of this one, I'm willing to listen.)

The Seven Headed Dragon
Hmmm. I'm not sure I want to be a sign of the apocolypse.

The Pleiades
AKA The Seven Sisters. Nymphs. It has possibilities, even if there are only 6 of us.

Phookas -- Pookas, Phoukas, pick your favorite spelling!
Okay, so follow my reasoning. The seventh sign in the Chinese Zodiac is the horse. Mix horses with fantasy elements and you get the Púca. I'm just glad we weren't team 10. Using the same loose logic, I get the Baba Yagas.

That's it for now. If I think of anything else, I'll drop back in.

Yeah, that's about it, Regina. Just a post tracking who picks what and noting when we've read and our rating once we're done reading it.

Amanda wrote: "Hi ladies! I'm so excited about R3 of Bingo and playing with all of you! I had so much fun the first two rounds.

I'll try to think of some suggestions for team names. I have to warn you that I'm not very creative though. I can be the team captain and track our books.

Steph, I didn't realize there were two Amandas signed up this round. I can be Amanda A if that makes things any easier. Good luck on your midterms! "


That'd be great, if you wouldn't mind doing it. :D

Thanks! They'll be my first, so part of my nerves are from not knowing what to expect. After that, I should be okay. We'll see. Thanks for the well wishes.

No worries about the name game. Sorry about the mix up on the RSVPs. Now that ya'll are on two different teams it's all good.

Daffodil wrote: "Steph, my good ole Bingo Buddy. This time we're gonna win. I can feel it in my bones. LOL."

Sounds good to me, Girlie! Let's win this thing! :D

Love the name choices! So far the first thing that came to mind for me was same as Amanda - cards. LOL! Great minds, right? If ya'll reach a consensus without me, I'm cool with whatever ya'll like. I'm guessing I'm the only one on the non-US time zone? So, no need to wait for me. I'll keep thinking of suggestions though and share if I think of anything.


message 14: by Steph, Just keep swimming … (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 28248 comments Wow, it's been quiet over here, huh? Ya'll still out there? ;) What's everyone reading? Everyone doing well?

Been trying to think of names. I like Daffodil's Pookas idea.

This is all I could think of last night:
Lucky #7 (since we were only supposed to have 6 teams)
The 7 Wonders (of the world)
7th Heaven
7 Deadly Sins (bit too far? How 'bout 7 Virtues?) :)
7 Dirty Words (LOL! Have you ever seen George Carlin's skit? We saw him many moons ago. This was my hubby's contribution.)
7 Year Itch (bleh. Makes it sound like we have scabies or something)
24/7
The Seventh Sign (Movie w/Demi Moore)
7Up
007


Things that come in 7:
7 Chakras, 7 Gods of good fortune in Japan, 7 Sisters in Greek Mythology, 7 members on the Justice League (although we have 6 - duh, Steph), 7 colors in the Rainbow, 7 Planets (bye-bye Pluto), 7 days of the week, 7 was a magical # in Harry Potter, 7 metals ...

Some groups of 6:
The Sinister 6 (Spider Man's Foes - yep, Hubby again), Six members of Monty Python, Power Rangers (don't ask LOL!), Number of Chess pieces, Village People (LOL!)

Words using our first initials:
Scars, Cards, Crass

Bookish Names:
Chapter Chicks
Reading Rebels
Lit Chicks
Ravenous Readers
Beautiful Bibliophiles
Readers Dozen
Between the Covers / Under the Covers
Spine Crackers (don't do that! LOL)
Litwits
Well-read Undead


That's all I got.

Regina (reginar) | 2883 comments You all are so creative!!


message 16: by Regina (new)

Regina (reginar) | 2883 comments Lol at scabies. I like litwits, beautiful bibliophiles, 7up .... But really I like all of them.

Blah. I just filed something huge on a case and have been working around the clock so not much reading. And for some crazy reason I kept starting more books instead of finishing up. Gotta start cleaning these books out before book bingo starts!


message 17: by Steph, Just keep swimming … (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 28248 comments :D Hi Regina!

I was going to say jock itch, but no jocks. Scabies (eeeww) was the first thing that came to mind. Other than the wandering spouse, of course.

I'm cool with whatever name everyone agrees on. Just had some time to throw some other ideas into the mix. I like those you've mentioned too.

Yuck! Good luck with the case! Uni's keeping me busy, so reading time is down. Depressing - hate when I can't read a few hours (at least) every day.

BSB is a great way to thin the TBR stacks. Have you looked at the shelf names for this round? Any you don't think you'll have a book for? I threw in some new ones in addition to the old standbys and left overs from R2.

Was wondering where everyone was located -
Celine ~ Netherlands
Daffodil ~ Illinois
Amanda ~ S. Carolina
Steph ~ Japan
Regina ~ Illinois
Amy (Sassy) ~ Tennessee


No word from Celine or Amy yet, huh? Come out, come out, where ever you are. :)


message 18: by Regina (new)

Regina (reginar) | 2883 comments Ooooh, we are international. :) I like that. I haven't looked at the shelves, I am pretty confident I wil have a book, lol. Unfortunately I am somewhat of a hoarder. *blush* But let me know take a look.


message 19: by Steph, Just keep swimming … (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 28248 comments Me too :) And again, Ditto! No shortage of books here either. Just a matter of finding one on the shelf I want to read.

Guess what?! I aced my midterms! WOOHOO, baby!! :D Now I can chill for another 3.5 weeks until my finals.

I'm hoping to finish Double Cross this weekend. I'm almost to the 1/2 mark. Feels like it's taking me a year and a day to read this one. Only b/c of RL crap, not the story. The story is really good.

♡ Sassy ~ Amy ♡ | 494 comments hey!! i got it!! thanks for the PM!!! That is so cool we are from all over!!! I am originally from orange county, CA ... I grew up there and am transplanted here! it's almost like stepping back in time!!


♡ Sassy ~ Amy ♡ | 494 comments OK!! I was looking at the categories & the only thing I can say for sure is that ~ I hate male authors. They are cold & post apocolyptic hmmmmm. not sure about that one. Otherwise, it'll be easy!! Can't wait!


message 34: by Amanda A (new)

Amanda A (carolinabookworm) | 812 comments Hi Amy! Those shelves do look like they will be the hardest to find books for. I don't have a whole lot of books by male authors, but I haven't started the Dresden Files yet so it will probably end up being that series if the shelf is called.


♡ Sassy ~ Amy ♡ | 494 comments grabbed a dean koontz book! I haven't read any of him for a couple years. I used to love it, then it got too weird... Oh well. I am not sure about post apoctolyptic... cant say it, so I can't spell it! LOL! Out of my 800 books, I don't think I have a single one! Ahhh! Oh well... I am thinking of all kinds of books, but they are just futuristic..hmmm... Let me know if you know any good ones!!


♡ Sassy ~ Amy ♡ | 494 comments My brain is fried, so any name right now will work for me!! Although, I'm thinking we should be the Alpha females... I was just looking at the categories again. Picking books out per category. aughing at the instant stupid thoughts that pop in my head.

message 39: by Celine (new)

Celine | 180 comments Hi guys! Sorry that I'm the last to check in (;

You ladies have a lot of imagination! Any name is good with me, but I like one with a 7 in it, as 7 is my lucky number.

By the way, congrats on your midterms Steph!

I thought I'd tell you guys up front, I hope you don't mind. I'm going on a one-week trip to Italy from August 8th 'till August 16th. That means around that time I'm not sure whether I have internet connection. If I have, there is no problem, as I'll have plenty of time to read there. If not, I hope that won't be our bingo-week!


♡ Sassy ~ Amy ♡ | 494 comments Thanks for the post apocalyptic suggestions!!

Amanda A (carolinabookworm) | 812 comments Hi Celine! Glad you found us! Enjoy your trip to Italy. I have always wanted to travel there.


message 42: by Amanda A (new)

Amanda A (carolinabookworm) | 812 comments I loved The Hunger Games trilogy! I have a few of the others mentioned TBR. Glad to hear they are good ones too.


message 43: by Steph, Just keep swimming … (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 28248 comments Thanks, guys! :D I'm glad they are behind me.

Hi, Amy & Celine! Welcome! Enjoy your trip to Italy, Celine! I've been to Vicenza and Venice. Beautiful!

I'll be heading to Tokyo mid-August, but will only be gone for a couple of days, so no Bingo conflict.

Great suggestions on the p-a books! I have a male author shelf, if anyone would like to check it out. But, remember, your book choice must be listed on the shelf (link provided with shelf announcement) to count.

Hope everyone had/has a great weekend! Looking forward to starting the game this Sunday.

Steph (angel4492) | 28248 comments :) You're welcome. There'll be a lot more on the shelf link if it's even called. All depends on Mr. Randomizer.


Cindy (eclecticfirefly) (eclecticfirefly) | 1237 comments I am hoping it gets called! I've got another 15 or 20 books from that category that I found in my TBR. A lot of them are on other shelves as well. The only problem I have now is trying to decide on my top choices for each shelf!

Celine | 180 comments Thanks Amanda & Steph.

I'm curious to see what Mr Randomizer has in store for us. I'm especially worried about the Futuristic shelf, the only futuristic-ish book I can think of that I own is The Stand, which might be a tad too long (;

Daffodil (daffodil--ripcranberry) | 2098 comments The main list of Goodreads Shelves are here. Just type a specific shelf name in if you want to do some exploring. I'm not sure why the shevles aren't in explore's drop down menu. Listopia, popular and genres are, but not shelves?
