Dee (austhokie) | 1124 comments hey guys
GR has launched a beta group challenge program. At the bottom of the groups home page you can see the challenge - all you have to do it click on it to join (similar to the reading goal challenge this year) - designate a shelf you want to use and the number of books (for Jamie it would be 5) - when you finish the book, put it on that shelf, and it will count towards the challenge. You guys can back-date to the start of the month.

The title must start with that letter - disregarding the previous mentioned The, An etc

Barbara ★ cool idea. I've joined.


message 3: by Wendy F, biblioholic (new)

Wendy F (blessedwannab) | 3151 comments I'm excited about the new challenge tracker! That's so exciting.

So Dee, were you thinking that we can use any of the words in the title or the first letter? Meaning, I'm reading Froi of the Exiles. Can I use this for E, or does it have to start with E?


message 4: by Dee (new)

Dee (austhokie) | 1124 comments sorry - has to start with that letter - i'll refine it :)


message 5: by Wendy F, biblioholic (new)

Wendy F (blessedwannab) | 3151 comments I just wanted to make sure I understood, lol. It was worded fine, I've just seen challenges with both.


message 6: by Dee (new)

Dee (austhokie) | 1124 comments good point - i'm trying to figure out how to edit the date to start at the beginning of the month, but it doesn't like me (although the programer swears it can be changed) - so just date your stuff after the 7th and it should work


message 7: by Jen (at last!) (last edited Nov 07, 2011 06:30PM) (new)

Jen (at last!) (jenkeith) | 1052 comments Yay, I've joined! Just so I understand correctly it has to be books we haven't read yet, right?


message 8: by Wendy F, biblioholic (new)

Wendy F (blessedwannab) | 3151 comments I think Dee said you can backdate your shelf. As long as it was in the month of November...


message 9: by Jen (at last!) (last edited Nov 07, 2011 06:30PM) (new)

Jen (at last!) (jenkeith) | 1052 comments Shoot, sadly, I haven't read much in November yet. I need to get crackin'.


message 10: by Dee (new)

Dee (austhokie) | 1124 comments lol! I only set it for a month while we test it out. my plan is to run a few challenges that are month - like the spell the character and then a few that run for the year


message 11: by Catherine (new)

Catherine | 288 comments let me understand this correctly...is this an alphabet challenge or just a "Jamie" title/character. if it's an alphabet challenge..then great.. I can manage...and when does it end..


message 12: by Lisa (last edited Nov 08, 2011 05:02PM) (new)

Lisa | 345 comments I think I goofed while setting up my challenge. I only got as far as putting in the number 5 in total of books and name of challenge and then when I clicked on the final button it said that I've read 4 of 5 books already. But I haven't built my shelf yet and don't know yet how to set it up - eeeek. I'm such a klutz :/

Never mind...I think it's fixed now - whew! I better get off here and start reading!!


message 13: by Wendy F, biblioholic (new)

Wendy F (blessedwannab) | 3151 comments I'm pretty sure that it's a spell JAMIE challenge, the alphabet challenge hasn't started yet. And I think the Jamie challenge ends on the last day of this month, but it's on our homepage.


message 14: by Catherine (last edited Nov 08, 2011 07:04PM) (new)

Catherine | 288 comments so..using Jamie as the Acronym then?


I can do that...


message 15: by Dee (new)

Dee (austhokie) | 1124 comments yes, spell JAMIE, for example:

J - Just So Stories
A - Ann Pratchett - Bel Canto
M
I
E

and it will run through the end of the month

message 18: by Jen (at last!) (new)

Jen (at last!) (jenkeith) | 1052 comments P.S.--Does it count if the letter is the FIRST name of the author?


message 19: by Dee (new)

Dee (austhokie) | 1124 comments yep - first or last name

so Ann Pratchett or Jennifer Armitage (for example) could be used for the A

message 21: by Dee (new)

Dee (austhokie) | 1124 comments if you guys want to, or you can post a comment on your challenge - its pretty much honor system

i'm thinking about starting a completed challenges thread so you guys can be recognized (if you so desire)


message 22: by Lisa (new)

Lisa | 345 comments Yeah, do we win a prize?! ;) LOL What would make a good prize...hmmm...an evening with Jamie?


message 23: by Wendy F, biblioholic (new)

Wendy F (blessedwannab) | 3151 comments I so want to join this, but I didn't plan ahead and with group reads I just don't think I can... I'm going to look through my shelf tonight and see!

Lisa | 345 comments BOL!!!! Have you checked your closet lately Dee? Wait...isn't there a set of mini standing stones near North Carolina?


message 29: by Dee (new)

Dee (austhokie) | 1124 comments well, we could take a trip to jamaica, there is a passage there, and there is one in NC somewhere


message 30: by [deleted user] (last edited Nov 10, 2011 05:42PM) (new)

LOL me too, a date with Jamie and Ian would suffice. I bet you ken where you put them Dee! Ahh Jamaica would be a fine place to start a date... great idea


message 31: by Catherine (new)

Catherine | 288 comments Jamaica's closer..but then there's the added possible problem of the Triangle! you could disappear totally! for real...then what!


message 32: by [deleted user] (new)

you would be surrounded by handsome pilots, sailors and pirates... they may keep a girl amused for quite some time...


message 33: by Catherine (new)

Catherine | 288 comments or...you would be their entertainment!
