TBR members please Read this & post a comment when done. :-)

First off let me say I am loving our Blog- it's looking great & you guys are doing some awesome reviews! ( There are sooooo many great books being reviewed! lol)

I know that there are some changes being made to what each person has chosen to read for the monthly challenge. Totally understandable. I for one started a book & decided there was NO WAY I could finish it as I was bored to tears. So I picked a new one, e-mailed Peppertatto & she updated the list she has. I also have a list. As does Julien who was wonderful in helping us to set up the TBR WIKI.

However in order to get all the updates & everything done in a timely manner and as smoothly as possible- I thought it would be most efficient & make the most sense to have everyone in charge of updating their own Bookmooch TBR Club wiki entries each month at the Bookmooch TBR Club Wiki:

http://wiki.bookmooch.com/index.php?title=TBR_Support_Group
A link will be posted to the right.

At the bookmooch wiki- all you need to do is register to become a member (it's free & very very simple to sign up) and then you can edit your books there yourself!

Towards the end of each month- you can head over there & update your book entries yourself for the next month. Be sure to list when you add new entries & delete the old ones & note what month it is for when adding the new book choices for the next month. That way we will be able to tell right off the bat who has updated their list & who hasnt yet.
Then on or around the 3rd of each month Peppertatto or myself can then transfer the New "These are the books I will be reading for "insert month here" over from the bookmooch TBR Wiki to the Blog & post there what everyone will be reading that month in list form & everyone can refer to the WIKI for book updates, changes, etc.

This way Pepper & I can keep track from there without having a lot of loose e-mails floating around whenever anyone makes a minor change & when it's time to list what we are reading for the next month.

Hopefully this is clearer than mud.However If anybody has any questions please dont hesitate to contact me by e-mail! :-)

My thought is that this will help ease the flow of traffic some e-mail wise while allowing you all the chance to edit your own listings on the WIKI site without the TBR Mods having to make each change.

I ask that everyone add a comment with your username to this post so that we know everyone has seen it & is aware of the new changes.

Keep on Reading! ( And then Blogging about it!! ) *Grins*

I love this idea!! And agree it will make things much easier for ya'll to take care of.

Got a question though:
Be sure to list when you add new entries & delete the old ones & note what month it is for when adding the new book choices for the next month. That way we will be able to tell right off the bat who has updated their list & who hasn't yet.

Where do we list this at? On the discussion page , a notation under the new entry, on the forums, in a personal email to ya'll?

Will you be adding separate headers for each month or have seperate pages in the wiki?


Thanks
Tesse

Tesse- you change your book entries each month on the Bookmooch Wiki. You have to join the wiki site to be able to do this- but it is very easy to join. I have provided a link for the bmwiki on the right hand side of the blog.
When you are adding your 2 new books for the next month- please remove the books from the previous month that you have finished so that the wiki is always updated and the entriy page does not become to long.

That's great. Thanks!

Mary said...

I don't have to change anything yet, but when I add new TBR books I will head over there. Thanks, Mary

Carine said...

Thanks for your hard work! Now I understand how to add my books for June :-)

Dee said...

Yeppers! I've read it. I just couldn't find how to post a comment until this am. Sorry...I'm learning though. ;o)

Selene said...

I'll update the wiki every time I read a book :)

JY White said...

Thanks for the invite! Now I can post my reviews. I also signed up to the Wiki and updated my June Books.

Becky said...

Thanks for the invite! I have posted my books for May on the wiki and am working on getting the reviews up here. I haven't decided what I'll be reading for June yet! I'm new to the blogging world - but I'm learning!

Read and grateful :) I've been a bit AWOL lately because of work, moving, and car issues, so people updating the wiki themselves would be a huge help! My only addition would be that registration is not required to edit the wiki, as far as I know.

I'm about to post my first review! - Julien

Mortaine said...

Yes, of course!

Marika said...

Makes sense to me, and I'm enjoying updating the blog and the wiki for my entries.

Bri said...

Bri said...

Carod said...
