message 10: by JenniJenni (new)

JenniJenni | 294 comments I'm a newbie, so I might ask a lot of questions. Oh, Steph, did you mean for the post # by my name to be 63 instead of 64? Just want to make sure I'm on this team. Super excited!


message 11: by Lis (new)

Lis | 3607 comments Hello team! Very excited to get started. Names are the toughest for me so I'll try to come up with some today. I'm in the US on est std time. I'm a working mom, so I will be able to pop in for quick updates in the morning and available in the evenings.

@Jennifer this is my 3rd round playing, so ask away.

Other things to take care of: time zones? Team captain volunteer? I'll pass on captain unless no one else can do it.

message 13: by JenniJenni (new)

JenniJenni | 294 comments Time zone for me: I live in Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas...we are around 15 hours behind Sydney.

I'm cool with anyone but me being the Team Captain. Since I haven't a clue as to how this all works, I don't think I would be a good choice. ;)

As far as the team name, do we want it to have something to do with UF?


message 14: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 23889 comments We can have it be anything we want. So start naming names. LOL.

Neener Niners
Cat-O-Nine Tails
K9
Nine Circles of Hell
Divine Nine
Cloud Nine

Keep em coming ;)


message 15: by Sue (new)

Sue (knitwitsl) | 96 comments Hello everyone! Since this is my first time, I definitely do not want to be the team captain. I'm on the west coast, and work full time. So my posting is usually at lunch or when I get home at night.

As for names, I'm not good at coming up them either. But I do like "Nine Circles of Hell" and "Divine Nine"!!


message 16: by Lis (last edited Jun 15, 2012 03:55PM) (new)

Lis | 3607 comments For first timers this is really easy and fun. Steph will post a link to the shelf that mr Randomizer selects and someone on the team will pop it in our thread. All you have to do is click the link and page thru until you find a book you have already, or select one you've been wanting to read. These are common GR shelves, so it seems the YA books appear heavily in the first couple of pages.

What's nice is that you can see your personal star ratings and shelf listings on the right. I'm a book horder so I usually have 5 or 6 choices and then you can post your short list if want help deciding.

It's nice to get your "free shelf" book read early on to get it out of the way. The first month or so, you have time to get the book read and finished in that same week so you don't get behind. Towards the end when we may be in a tie situation, you'll need to read pretty quickly.


message 17: by Lis (new)

Lis | 3607 comments I kind of like "Cloud Nine"... I was a Divining Diva last round (post celebratory twirl) so "Divine Nine" could be good luck too.


message 18: by Lis (last edited Jun 15, 2012 03:50PM) (new)

Lis | 3607 comments Jamming Slinky Sexy Literary Chicks, using our initials

9 Inch Novels or 9 Inch "something else"

Nine lives

Nine Nekked Warriors please...

I so very much suck at this!


message 19: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 23889 comments Welcome Sue, *waves*

Lis, you aren't any worse than me. LOL.


message 20: by JenniJenni (new)

JenniJenni | 294 comments Y'all are a hoot!


message 21: by JenniJenni (new)

JenniJenni | 294 comments 9 Inch Necromancers


message 22: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 23889 comments So, Caroline is the only one missing. I've sent her a friend request, so let's hope she pops in soon.


message 23: by Lis (new)

Lis | 3607 comments Sorry, had a baseball/ tball game tonite and back to help with names again.

Can go for spanish version of nine - Nueve if we can think of something literary or pnr UF ish to rhyme with that.

Just a warning, you'll have to forgive my fat finger and auto correcting iPad. I often look at my posts and wonder why I would type that..


message 24: by Caroline (last edited Jun 16, 2012 04:39AM) (new)

Caroline (zombiecazz) | 108 comments Hi, somehow I managed to completely miss finding out which team I was on. Thanks for the friend request, headed me in the right direction.

Suggestions: Rather ferocious hairballs.
Seems odd, but we're team 9, cats have nine lives and the Cheshire cat says " I'm afraid I have to expel a rather ferocious hairball. You're on your own, girl. "


message 25: by Caroline (last edited Jun 16, 2012 04:38AM) (new)

Caroline (zombiecazz) | 108 comments Lis - I have a similar iPad issue :o)


message 26: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 23889 comments Yay!!! We're all here :D

Anyone want to be team captain?

The job entails listing our reads and then linking to our reviews and when we've all read for a particular shelf, then requesting Steph stamp us. You've basically just got to keep everything tidy. LOL. And get the whip out for any slackers once we get close to Bingo :)


message 27: by Lis (last edited Jun 16, 2012 05:53AM) (new)

Lis | 3607 comments I would volunteer if I wasn't blocked at work, which locks me out of communication for 10-12 hours. With addition of kids in many activities I fear it coming down to the wire and missing an entry on time. My teams have been in the running last two rounds, so I know how important a few hours can make.

Also my book I was just reading had a line with nth power... So I thought of another one: "Sexy Literary Chicks to the 9th Power"


message 28: by Lis (new)

Lis | 3607 comments Jennifer wrote: "9 Inch Necromancers"

I like that one too.


message 29: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 23889 comments Unfortunately, 9th Power is pretty close to Rnd 4's Team #9 name - Nth Power.

Keep throwing out the names, then we'll do a list and we can vote.


message 30: by Lis (new)

Lis | 3607 comments Good catch Sandra, I didnt look in the archived threads to check.


message 31: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 23889 comments I was on all the threads so much last Rnd, doing the verifying as well as chatting, that most of the names stuck.


message 32: by Caroline (new)

Caroline (zombiecazz) | 108 comments I don't want to be team captain, as I too can be out of contact for 10 to 12 hours at a time.


message 33: by Lis (new)

Lis | 3607 comments 9 itching novelistas


message 34: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 23889 comments Looks like I'll be team captain, which is fine, cause I do like the lists to look just right. Bhwaaaaaaaa

I'll put the list up for voting about the time the shelf is announced, so keep tossing names into the ring :)


message 35: by Lis (new)

Lis | 3607 comments Thx Sandra ;)


message 36: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 23889 comments ;) Off to bed now as its 1.12am, and I've had the dirty look from hubby and the advice that its bedtime. LOL.


message 37: by Sue (new)

Sue (knitwitsl) | 96 comments I missed a bit here! Thanks Sandra for being team captain. As for names, my daughter suggested that we name our team after the ninth circle of hell. I looked that up, and the site said it's called the circle of treachery. That could be interesting, but maybe a bit out there?

I am also ready with a book for my free space that I've ordered from my library!


message 38: by Lis (new)

Lis | 3607 comments First shelf announced - YA PNR: http://www.goodreads.com/shelf/show/y...


message 39: by Lis (last edited Jun 16, 2012 03:22PM) (new)

Lis | 3607 comments Ok not super big on YA, but found Angelfall (Penryn & the End of Days, #1) by Susan Ee on my wish list and was an inexpensive download. So I'm starting with it for now. Happy Reading team!


message 40: by Steph, Serious series addict (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 29012 comments Yay! Hope you enjoy it, Lis. Great book!

Thanks Lis for posting the link to the shelf. Steph must of got up early this week :DD Anxious to start the game. LOL.


message 43: by Caroline (new)

Caroline (zombiecazz) | 108 comments I'm going to read Linger (The Wolves of Mercy Falls, #2) by Maggie Stiefvater I enjoyed the first one.


message 44: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 23889 comments It's between Dark Frost (Mythos Academy, #3) by Jennifer Estep and Grave Mercy (His Fair Assassin, #1) by R.L. LaFevers though I'm leaning towards Dark Frost.

And I haven't picked out a Freespace book yet.


message 45: by JenniJenni (new)

JenniJenni | 294 comments Thanks, Sandra for stepping up. As far as a team name, I'm good with what ever you guys want.

Treacherous Teasers
Treacherous Tarts


message 46: by Sue (new)

Sue (knitwitsl) | 96 comments I am actually not big on young adult either. So, I went down the list and the first one that was available right now for download is The Iron King. It is downloaded and I am starting today!

message 48: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 23889 comments Hmm, I think from that lot I'm partial to Nine Circles of Hell or Circle of Treachery.

What's everyone else think?

And Sue what have picked out for Freespace, cause I'll put it on the list?


message 49: by JenniJenni (new)

JenniJenni | 294 comments I'm not in to YA either. I'm going to read City of Bones.


message 50: by Lis (last edited Jun 16, 2012 05:17PM) (new)

Lis | 3607 comments For free space I'm narrowing it down. I'd like to use Darkness Devours (Dark Angels, #3) by Keri Arthur but it doesn't come out til the 26th. If I can't wait to knock it off my to dos, I might go with Blood Kin (The Half-Light City, #2) by M.J. Scott Blaze of Memory (Psy-Changeling, #7) by Nalini Singh or Firelight by Kristen Callihan
