Phoenix (Online Elf) | 4358 comments RLftCI: Quarterly Challenge - 3rdQ - July, August, September

~ The Sun, the Moon, the Stars, a Planet, or the Zodiac sign - if you Wish! ~

Rules: Did you know there is going to be a Blue Moon in August? Yup. In honor of that -- and the sunny days of Summer -- find four (4) books that have a sun, moon, stars, a planet, or a Zodiac sign on the cover or in the title. Or has a blue cover! You can have multiples of one (like two blue covers).

Duration: July 1, 2012 - September 30, 2012

A goodreads glitch , do you have the same problem? Did you get the notification for RLFTCI Sonny Daze message?


message 36: by Lina (new)

Lina | 5563 comments I'm not getting the emails at all, it's very annoying. With some threads, when I log into goodreads, I'll see the little red notification message at the top of the page, and with yet other threads I'm not only not getting a notification email, but no notification indicator/message at the top of the page.

Thanks, I like them too. And I have now finished the Drake Sisters and started on the follow-up--Sisters of the Heart, which is also in Sea Haven and features some of the Drake family. So far so good. Of course, only the first two books are out, but I ended up liking the first so much I have already started the second.

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 20797 comments Looks like Sonny Daze (Online Elf) updated everyone with hyperlinks to their posts. Hmmm... he isn't much of a talker, is he?

I really need to figure out what I'm going to read for this challenge. I thought for sure I'd have come across something that fit by now.


message 47: by Donna (last edited Jul 09, 2012 07:14AM) (new)

Donna Hi, All! I finished my first book for this challenge:

Blue cover Mockingjay (The Hunger Games, #3) by Suzanne Collins 7/8/12

Loved this final installment in the Hunger Games trilogy!

(Glad to see I'm not the only one with notification problems. I'm not getting notifications for any new discussions I join.)


message 48: by Lina (new)

Lina | 5563 comments Oh no, Donna! I thought GR had fixed the problems :-(


message 49: by Lisa Kay, Moderator (new)

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 20797 comments Nah. It is still an issue for some. I'm also getting "Alice" when I try to look in a new thread. A lot!
