Time to visit old friends and/or make new friends.

For June, we are once again doing our Reading with Friends Challenge.

Challenge Duration: June 1, 2010 - June 30, 2010

The goal is to read 10 books chosen from the "Read" shelf of 10 GR friends of the participant.

Here are the rules:

Pick 10 GR friends of yours. (If you have less than 10, time to make new ones...LOL...)
Browse their "READ" shelves, and pick one from each friend. You may use GR's compare books feature for your convenience.
Post your tentative list, with the selected friends' names and your chosen books.

As usual, you may post your list anytime but no reading until June 1st.


Kelley Anne | 286 comments Just want to verify one thing. This can be any of our Goodreads friends, not just ones that are in this group, right?

Kelley Anne | 286 comments Judithe - the way that you add friends is by going to someone's profile (clicking on their name, and then clicking on it a second time and then right under their personal info is a place that you can click to add them as a friend.

I put in a request for you to be my friend. Just go to your goodreads home page, there is a place on the right that should say friend requests. You can click on that and approve the request.

Hope that makes sense!


Awesomevegan (AKA JenReads) (awesomevegan) | 184 comments Hey everyone, If you need friends for this challenge add me. I will accept all of you. :) I accept all invites. I only delete people if they start harassing me lol. :) And no, recommending books doesn't count as harassing. I am in because this is a VERY flexible challenge. I just need to compare with my other challenges then I will post a list. :)


Judithe | 121 comments @ Kelley Anne=perfect sense and I've accepted! Thanks!

Stephanie (PremiumCrouton) | 24 comments If anyone needs a friend let me know. Also, if we are reading off of others read list does that mean it doesn't have to fit the paranormal romance theme??
