Bara medlemmar i LibraryThing kan skriva.
Denna diskussion är för närvarande "vilande"—det sista inlägget är mer än 90 dagar gammalt. Du kan återstarta det genom att svara på inlägget.
Trying to filter here, I still haven't transferred all data from BC and Goodreads to all books. There are doubles and books without BCID, date acquired, collection(s). Making progress, but it is slow, for there's a zillion other things to be done as well.
Allright, to make a long story short:
MTBR put on 200
Goal for 2014: read 15 books acquired before 1-1-2014
Update March 20th, 2014: orginal Challenge completed, so... I'll add another 15.

*waits to hear from anicha* :)
Idea: Shouldn't we also put a link back to each book's BC journal here on our threads as well?
Do you have any suggestions how to fix that?
The HTML is
<A HREF="http://www.librarything.com/topic/1629522">link to LibraryThing</A>
What DID work, however, is the link to the general group's page:
link naar LibraryThing
And, with 'so many' BookCrossers involved, I think it is an even better idea to link to the group page, instead of directly to my thread.
I'm glad you've gotten some interest in this group. Have you posted a notice about it on any of the BookCrossing forums?
I haven't posted a notice in any forum (yet), just added the link to the group in my JE of the book read. Good idea though, I think I'll post it in the Challenges Forum.
The first one was a. not such a biggy, b. in Dutch, and c. not so difficult so I kind of flew through. The ones I am reading now are neither, so I guess the next post with 'books read' won't be very soon...
1. I added a link from my BC book journal back to LT yesterday with no problem.
2. I really like this group precisely because it's so small. I can follow the threads of everyone here! Thanks, again, for starting it.
2. You're welcome! I'm happy with the way things are going now too and love watching all threads. Too bad work is consuming WAY too much time now the holiday season is over again :-(
2. Don't complain about work. I suddenly lost my job of 39+ years without notice last month. I only wish I had some work to return to. Instead, I'm turning to social security for some income. I'll watch your threads while you're at work! ;)
I'll take a closer look at the link you included. I love learning new things too, thanks for pointing me there.
I might eventually like not working, but it's still too new and weird. I have lots of time to read, though! :)
I hope this becomes a pathway to a yet more satisfying and rewarding life. And quickly.
Thanks, Teresa. I'm hoping for this as well...but it hasn't happened yet! ;)

I think I'll just add another 15. Don't like being without a challenge or keeping received books longer than appropriate on my shelf...
Have you thought of adding tickers from Ticker Factory to the top of your thread to show your progress through your challenges?

This list is not growing fast at the moment. Well, maybe soon: the annual BC-meeting is coming up, as are quite a few birthdays in Oppem's Birthday Group 2014 :-)
There are more meetings per year in the different regions of The Netherlands. In the south there's a monthly meet-up, we in the north meet irregularly but mostly three or four times a year.
THE BC-meeting however that is the height of the year and that everyone is looking forward to, is the one called Castricum-meeting, scheduled at the end of June, start of July every year.
BookCrossers from all over The Netherlands and Belgium get together. Last year even Ardik and a few other German crossers joined us.
Castricum is a village near the (North Sea) beach, the spot where the meeting takes place is even AT the beach and with a lot of luck we have great weather.
Sometimes we at BCinDC get together with two other meet-up groups (from Carroll County and from Audubon, Pennsylvania). However, we don't do anything special for those meet-ups.
Our favorite BCinDC meet-up is the annual holiday party in which we play the "first line" game and give out wrapped books whose first line is written on the outside of the package. The wrapped book goes to whoever likes the first line. It's really fun. Then we eat!! :D
My favorite site for the holiday party is at the house of authorauthor who also has her own Little Free Library. Everyone brings food for a pot luck meal. It's always great!
This challenge makes me more aware of what I read. Not in the sence of genre or authors, but I am more or less constantly aware of the books that I have that are given to me by others. When before I just picked what looked interesting, I now look first if it is mine or if it's a BC-book I was given. Works very well so far :-)
Good plan! :)
I'm also much more conscious this year of checking first if the book is from another BC'r.
All these passwords make me nuts!!
Don't panic. It is the first option. I do have an account there. You only need one password in order to create multiple tickers.

When I feel up to it, I'll see if I missed a lot and add them to this thread. If not, I'll just make a fresh start in 2015.
MTBR-Challenge: completed. (And I got WAY more in than I could read and send out, so there's no real result.
Ant that's the only one. I did not reach my goals of 100 book, 30,000 pages, Alphabet Challenge for authors and titles.
It's a bit sad, but life got in the way in various ways. That's how it was in 2014. I hope 2015 will be friendlier!
