Adrienne Teague (ateague) | 409 comments Report your shelves here.

Here are the shelves that went bye-bye this round. If you touched them last round, give yourself an extra cross-off. Yay!

2009-books
already-read
bookcrossing
books-read-in-2009
childhood-books
criticism
electronic-library
from-the-library
have-read
i-own-this
japanese
nothing-yet
own-but-not-read
read-aloud

And everybody give yourself a big old cross-off for own---not-read and the fiasco we had with that one last round. We all deserve it. Go ahead.


message 2: by Gemma (new)

Gemma | 99 comments I am doomed to never even reach 200! - 350 is probably beyond me with the time I get to read - 199 last time round (will do my proper end-of-session reporting later). Must try harder! :)

So onto the new...

1 book
31 shelves

that includes cross-offs for a couple of the above shelves and one for own---not-read. Crossed off non-nook-ebk, poetry and western.


message 3: by Adrienne (new)

Adrienne Teague (ateague) | 409 comments Yay, Gemma! First poster!

In case anyone is curious. Here is the list of new shelves for this round. Well, some we've seen before, but they were not on the list last round.

1
3-stars
books-we-own
bought
detective
dnf
faves
home
m-f
non-nook-ebk
on-kindle
pdf
to-read-non-fiction
unowned
young

Again, I have no idea what "1" is. And I can only assume that "m-f" is "male-female" since "m-m" is "male-male". Either way, enjoy!


message 4: by Kim (new)

Kim I haven't finished a book yet, but I crossed off two shelves - "mm", "m-m" - for hitting deleted shelves.

2 shelves
0 books

Dee (austhokie) | 616 comments and once again I got completely distracted...one of these days i'm actually going to finish this challenge! lol!


message 6: by Adrienne (new)

Adrienne Teague (ateague) | 409 comments Kim L don't forget to cross one off for "own---not-read". We are all crossing one off for that, since it got removed by Goodreads in the middle of the game last round, or something like that.

You can cross off any shelves for books you finished by Oct. 31.

I'm confused - I think the question referred to whether we should cross off books in #10 for any shelves we hit in #9 that were new in #9.

Oh, oops. Let me clarify. This round started for books you finished on or after Nov. 1. Any books finished before that you can claim on Shelf a thon 9. Clear as mud? Awesome.

If you read those books, what you do is go to 'see more shelves' on the right of the book's page and look at the first 100 shelves. You can cross off all shelves that appear in this top 100. A very lovely soul has made a spreadsheet you can use to cross them all off and track your progress, it's in message number six here:
http://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/6...

As an example, I read Tomorrow, When the War Began, which had 73 of the challenge shelves in its top 100, so therefore I was able to eliminate 73 shelves to start with.


message 15: by Claussius (new)

Claussius Think I figured this out.

2 books, took me to a 50 :)
