N.L. Riviezzo (nlriviezzo) I'm in


Valorie Count me in!


Diane ~Firefly~ For book 1, are they choosing new to you books or from your TBR?


N.L. Riviezzo (nlriviezzo) If we don't have 'too busy to have gotten back to choice' for #4, can we pick a book that is the next book in series we've been reading? Say a new release of an enjoyed series?


Alyssa (lyssad87) | 116 comments I'm in. This should be good.


Alyssa (lyssad87) | 116 comments For 2 and 3, do you have to choose books that the other members have read, or can you choose from any of their shelves?


Erin (Erin-B) Sounds fun, I'm in.


Sandra | 742 comments I'm in, but would prefer 'pick it for me' to come from my tbr.


 ♥ ♥Lynn ♥ ♥ | 2422 comments Mod
NL, if you are caught up by all means you may keep going. Don't want to hold you back.

Alyssa, you pick from the other members READ shelf.

Sandra, you can do that with book 2 and 3.


 ♥ ♥Lynn ♥ ♥ | 2422 comments Mod
I forgot, I am in too.

I'm afraid I can't go out and buy a book I'm not interested in or by an author I hate etc, just because someone picked it out for me. I have a limited budget being unemployed and only buy what I really want to read when I have the cash to do it and with a huge tbr list I need to read them first. Sorry, count me out!


Sandra | 742 comments Lynn, I know I can do that with 2 & 3. Just didn't want to have to buy another book, particularly if it's an author I don't like (as chucklesthescot said also). With more than 750 on my tbr (most owned already) I thought there'd be plenty to pick from. LOL.


Alyssa (lyssad87) | 116 comments Maybe for the Pick it for me books, the 'Picker' could suggest like 3 books or something? And maybe they could be books that aren't brand new, cuz then maybe they could be found at the library and might not have to be bought? (I know those aren't really questions. Haha.)

I do not care what shelf the picker picks from. It will be up to you to say what you have avaible. I am in no way saying run and buy what book they are going to suggest. If you want the group member to pick from your shelf titled, Books I own or Lib books, that is all you half to say. Just tell the person which shelf they are allowed to pick from. They are picking from your shelf. Like for me, I would want the group member to pick from my shelf books i own. I know about budget, I have 4 kids and a husband finishing up his last semester of college. His books are more important than mine at the moment.


Sandra | 742 comments Thanks Lynn, that's what I wanted to know. I'm definitely in!


Lisa I'm in


Rebecca (MyasMom) In the Pick It For Me challenge in the Romance Readers Reading Challenges group we pick four books from the persons to read or own shelf and four new to them book suggestions. Then they pick one book out of the eight. Maybe we could do something similar to give the reader options. Pick two of each or something. What do you all think?


 ♥ ♥Lynn ♥ ♥ | 2422 comments Mod
I think that sounds fine Rebecca.

1. Pick it for me (thanks Catherine) Midnight's Daughter by Karen Chance...


Yay, Midnight's Daughter! I hope you'll like this one Sandra. I really loved it.
I see you haven't read anything in the Cassie Palmer series yet, but I read MD before CP#1 and -eventhough there is some overlap- you don't really miss anything.
And Louis-Cesare is just gorgeous!


Sandra | 742 comments I should have known that would get a reaction Mel!

Yep, just bought all the Karen Chance books in the last 2 weeks. Looking forward to them all. I already know you love them!!!!!


 ♥ ♥Lynn ♥ ♥ | 2422 comments Mod
Mel, Tin Star was one of my first m/m books. I really liked it. I never was a cowboy fan, but those men are yummy!


Mel (mel_b) Sandra, that's great! But if you have all the books, you might want to consider starting with Touch the Dark in stead of Midnight's Daughter. Like I said: you won't miss much but you'll already have met Mircea and Louis-Cesare and see a totally different side of them.

Lynn, I've been meaning to read The Tin Star for a long while now. It's beckoning me from my ereader :)
I usually don't like howdy dowdy cowboys but if they're gay I could make an exception... ;)


Catherine Banks (catherine_banks) | 205 comments Okay, here's my list so far. I just need to figure out the continued reading. Any suggestions?
