message 10: by D.G. (last edited Aug 17, 2012 04:20PM) (new)

D.G. | 2752 comments Woohoo Team!! Nice to meet you Skandia & Kat. I'm a veteran from the last round so any questions, feel free to ask me!

We have two tasks before we get started: deciding on a name and picking a captain! (the captain will request the stamps once we are ready.)

I could be the captain BUT I'll be on vacation a good chunk of August so if we're still playing (which could happen), then I won't be in a position to request shelves promptly (which we might need by the end.)

Oh OK...I realized I should have introduced myself. I'm D.G., 35, married (no children) and I live in NYC. I'm Dominican by birth but I've been leaving in the US for around 13 years.

Reading is my main hobby so I'm around here A LOT. :)

Some suggestions for team name:
Sexy 17
Spicy 17
Sultry 17
Prime 17 (17 is a prime number...I like this idea of using prime but not sure if I like this name!)


message 11: by [deleted user] (last edited Jun 15, 2012 03:03AM) (new)

Nice to met you D.G., the names Kat and I live in Nova Scotia,Canada I'm 36 and currently unattached,I have no children but I have 2 spoiled rotten dogs that are worse then kids I'm beginning to think...lol. I'm not sure I'm up to the task of being team captian as I'm a newbie to BSB :)


message 12: by D.G. (new)

D.G. | 2752 comments Nice to meet you too, Kat!


message 13: by [deleted user] (new)

Here are a couple names I thought might be good for team names:
Smokin Seventeen
Sweet Seventeen
Extreme 17
Lethal 17

I'm not sure I like the sweet seventeen but I thought I would throw it in there :)


message 14: by Skandia (new)

Skandia (sfgirl) | 678 comments Nice to meet you all! I'm Skandia, 42 , I'm originally from Estonia and now I share my time between California and Estonia. I'm married, have one child and I love to read. I read almost any genre there is but non-fiction. My job includes a lot of reading any kind of boring serious legal-business style materials, so for my free time I like a good light fiction reads.

I like Spicy 17, good name! As I travel a lot and it's my first Bingo, I guess I'm not a good team captain material this round.


message 15: by D.G. (new)

D.G. | 2752 comments Hi Skandia! *waves hand*

I read almost everything too including some non fiction - but I just read less than 5 a year, depending on my mood. :)


message 16: by Lauren (new)

Lauren (laurenjberman) Hi everyone!
It is my first time playing as well and I'm really looking forward to it.

I'm Lauren, 36, currently single. I don't have any kids but I do have the sweetest yet naughtiest Jack Russell alive!
I'm originally from South Africa but have been living in Israel for the last 25 years. I'm an English lit lecturer so reading is both my hobby and livelihood. For me, books are food for the soul.

I love all the team name suggestions but I'm leaning toward Smokin 17 or Spicy 17. Not sure about being captain as its my first time playing and I'm already a bit overwhelmed.


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

Steph (angel4492) | 28263 comments Hi, ladies! Hope everyone has a great game!

LOL Lauren! My sister has a JR named Jackson and she describes him in pretty much the same way. Must be a JR-thing. :)


message 18: by D.G. (new)

D.G. | 2752 comments Welcome, Lauren!

The first time I played, I think I was the only newbie in my team (Hello Twisted Steph!) but now unless Jackie also has played in the past, I'll be the only veteran!


message 19: by Jackie M (new)

Jackie M | 695 comments Hi ladies!!


I am Jackie and I am from the US and live in Minnesota. I am 38, married and have 3 kids all girls. My kids are 20, 8, and 4 so my life is very interesting lol. I also work full time so there may be times when I don't check in right away but don't worry I always have my book read before the week is over.

This will be my 5th round of Bingo and I can't wait to get started. My advice to the new players is to make sure to read the free space read right away(when the game starts) so you won't have to worry about it down the road.

I stink at coming up with names but do like Spicy 17 and Sultry 17.

D.G. if you want to go ahead and be captain I could sub for you when you are on vacation in August. I sometimes work some funky hours so I may not be able to captain full time.


message 20: by Jackie M (new)

Jackie M | 695 comments I sent friend invites to all of you.


message 21: by D.G. (last edited Jun 15, 2012 04:48PM) (new)

D.G. | 2752 comments Hi Jackie! I'm so happy all of us have already checked in! Woohoo! We're going to have a great time. :)

Wow, Jackie. That's a big difference in between the ages of your kids. I wonder how you do it!

I'll also send friend invites to those of you who haven't friended me yet. :)

OK, I'll be the Captain! From here on now, please call me Capt. Hussy. :p

I also like Sultry 17...does anybody else have another ideas or can we vote?

D.G. | 2752 comments Lauren - Now that I see your nick, I realized I've seen you around in RRRC. :)

Word! My last team was great but a few members didn't get the free space read. Luckily that wasn't the reason we didn't win (the necessary shelves just didn't come up) but it could have. :)


message 25: by [deleted user] (last edited Jun 15, 2012 05:06PM) (new)

Thanks for the all the friend invites, I'm just getting home from work and had a million and a half emails to go over ...lol

I also like Sultry 17 and I'm glad Capt. Hussy has decided to take the job :)

I've been going over my TBR piles and going through shelves to see if anything is matching up and so far I have 3 choices for each shelf to choose from. I've been lurking the last 4 rounds and finally decided this was my time to play, I can't wait !!

I have my free space book all picked out and ready to go my e-reader is locked and loaded....lol


message 26: by Judithe, Soap Operas never end.... (new)

Judithe | 6371 comments LOL! Love Capt. Hussy!! Hooray, DG!

*waves at Jackie M.* Great to see you every round!


message 27: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 23497 comments Agrees with Judithe *waves at Capt Hussy & Jackie M*

Welcomes the lurkers and hopes you all have a good time :)


message 28: by D.G. (new)

D.G. | 2752 comments Thank you ladies! Feel free to stop by at any time. :)


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

Sandra | 23497 comments ROFL. Try and stop us!!!! We love Bingo, cause we can talk to everyone, Capt Hussy :)


message 30: by D.G. (new)

D.G. | 2752 comments I think everybody has voted at least for one name. Here's where we stand:

D.G.: Sultry 17
Kat: Sultry 17
Skandia: Spicy 17
Lauren: Smokin 17 or Spicy 17
Jackie M: Spicy 17 and Sultry 17

Sultry 17 & Spicy 17 got the most votes - 3 each as Jackie voted for both. So Jackie if you want to pick one or if another person wants to change her vote, let me know. :)


message 31: by Jackie M (new)

Jackie M | 695 comments Glad you decided to play Kat, you are going to love it.

I need to pick out a free space book still. The only painful thing about bingo is my bank account takes a hit, but that's. okay maybe I will actually get some reading done on my kindle instead of playing games on it.


message 32: by D.G. (new)

D.G. | 2752 comments I usually play it by ear...I just make sure I have books for the most obscure shelves. :)


message 33: by Jackie M (new)

Jackie M | 695 comments My final vote is Sultry 17 it makes me feel like a hot chick lol


message 34: by Judithe, Soap Operas never end.... (new)

Judithe | 6371 comments LOL!!! Y'all ARE hot ;D


message 35: by Skandia (new)

Skandia (sfgirl) | 678 comments Yay! We have a Capt.Hussy :) and I think we have a name, too??


message 36: by Steph, Just keep swimming … (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 28263 comments Did ya settle on a name, Capt. Hussy? ;) Twisted Hi back to ya!

Hope everyone has a great game!


message 37: by Lauren (new)

Lauren (laurenjberman) Thanks for the friend invites everyone! I love our group name - it definitely suits the hot and humid weather we are having here today.

@Capt. Hussy (great title) - yes, we've seen each other around on RRRC. I think we may have done a buddy read.

@Steph - sounds about right. JR's are notorious!


message 38: by [deleted user] (new)

LOL Jackie M, I think everybodys bank account takes a hit here on GR weather it's challenge related or not :)

I just updated my kobo Vox reader and was so excited to see that I now can get apps from google so I now have all my favorite apps to go to now for reading, Kindle,Sony and GR of course ,it's so nice to have all my books on one device...yay!

Let The Game begin!!!


message 39: by D.G. (new)

D.G. | 2752 comments Yay! We got a Team Name! Woohoo! I think we were among the first. :) (Which bodes well for our excitement.)


message 40: by [deleted user] (new)

So excited I can hardly keep myself contained...lol!


message 41: by D.G. (new)

D.G. | 2752 comments Ladies - Having the #17 in the name of the team thread twice is driving me bonkers (OCD! OCD!). So would anybody mind if we spell 17 in the actual team name? That way the thread name will be like:
Team 17 Sultry Seventeen

Thanks for putting up with the craziness, LOL!


message 42: by D.G. (new)

D.G. | 2752 comments There's a book that I MUST read for this challenge this week: Wicked Deeds on a Winter's Night (Immortals After Dark, #3) by Kresley Cole . If it doesn't fit the shelf, I'll read it for the Free Shelf.

I'm just obsessed with the narration! The guy does such a good job with the accents.

No worries Captn *snaps salute*


message 44: by D.G. (new)

D.G. | 2752 comments At ease Soldier! (or whatever it is they say, LOLOLOL!)

I think I'll change Shameless Hussy to Captain Hussy for the duration of the game!


message 45: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 23497 comments *smile* good idea ;)


message 46: by Skandia (new)

Skandia (sfgirl) | 678 comments Wow! Nice move D.G. :) You have really adopted the role of Captain exceptionally well! I think all of your soldiers feel very safe and fine facing the battle :P


message 47: by [deleted user] (new)

Here are my options for my free space read, I'm having a hard time choosing :)(These all came off the SOS book shelf)

Night Reigns (Immortal Guardians, #2) by Dianne Duvall Spellbound Falls (Spellbound Falls #1) by Janet Chapman Delirium (Delirium, #1) by Lauren Oliver


message 48: by Skandia (new)

Skandia (sfgirl) | 678 comments Kat, I considered Spellbound Falls, too.

I read Delirium recently. It was a good dystopian story and I'm not a very big fan of this genre but Lauren Oliver's writing style is very enjoyable.


message 49: by D.G. (new)

D.G. | 2752 comments I really liked Delirium but then hated book #2 (but I seem to be in the minority.)


message 50: by Lauren (last edited Jun 16, 2012 06:35AM) (new)

Lauren (laurenjberman) Love the Immortals After Dark Series. Wicked Deeds on a Winter's Night is excellent!

I like the idea of spelling out the number 17.

My options for the free space read are:
Forbidden Embers (Dragon's Heat #3) by Tessa Adams or The Darkest Lie (Lords of the Underworld, #6) by Gena Showalter
