Shelby (whiskeygirl75) | 2654 comments For anyone that is new to the group. Come join us for the June challenge.

We pair you up with someone and you each pick a book from your "TBR" list. Books that you have sitting around that need read that you just havent gotten around to. Its fun you find new books to add to your already growing pile. Learn what others thought about the book.

Come join us. I will pick partners May 24th

So is it just one pick for the month or the picks are throughout the month? Sorry not quite sure how it works.


message 24: by Pam (new)

Pam | 10043 comments One pick per month, Margaret, unless there is an odd number of participants, Shelby will ask if anyone would like to partner with more than one person.

Dessa (Night_Mirror) I'm new to the group but I would love to join in!


message 28: by Lee Ann (new)

Lee Ann | 922 comments Just to probably cause more confusion. We usually pick a book for the whole group to read also. This is an additional challenge that we started to get those backlogs of books from the TBR shelf to the read shelf. Example: This month, the whole group is reading Columbine and then everyone participating had to read what their partner picked for them. Of course, when you take one from the stack, you have probably bought two more in the month so we really don't get our stacks done, just keeping them the same. It is fun and has made me read some of those that have been around for a while. Glad to have some of you join. For the record, I think my stacks are the highest so just be sure you have your books in a place where we can see your list that you want to have books chosen from. Example: I have mine listed as I'll get to it. That means that I don't have to read them right away because they are around the house and they are a lower priority than the library. You can make your list whatever title you want. Cheryl asked me to pick from her kindle list last month. You can let your partner know what list you want them to use. Hope that did not muddy the water too much.

message 42: by Louise (new)

Louise Bailey Hi, this sounds great! How do I get into this?


message 43: by Shelby, Challenge Queen (new)

Shelby (whiskeygirl75) | 2654 comments Louise just tell us you want in. Read the thread for instructions. And Thursday I will pair you up with someone. Please have a list of books your partner can look at after the befriend you and they will pick a book off the list you state for you to read. Come back and tell us what was picked. Once you have read it in the month of June come back and tell us about it. And if any of you have questions please let us know.


Caren ~ the misfit geek (caren41) | 594 comments Shelby - do we also pick a book for them from their list?


message 45: by Shelby, Challenge Queen (new)

Shelby (whiskeygirl75) | 2654 comments Yes Caren you do. Sorry...forgor that part =)


Caren ~ the misfit geek (caren41) | 594 comments One more question (sorry) - Does it have to be a book we have read or can it be something that looks interesting?


message 47: by Shelby, Challenge Queen (new)

Shelby (whiskeygirl75) | 2654 comments Caren dont be sorry-It can be whatever you want. Books that you have in your home-ones you want to get from the library. Or just that something that looks interesting. Whatever is on your list your partner picks from. Most people like to pick books they have read that they see on your list. We have had some read the same books. It all depends on what you want.
I can look at your list for you if you would like. Give it a special name for example mine is "TBR books I have" one I read last month Ive had for a couple years. Its a matter of preference.


Caren ~ the misfit geek (caren41) | 594 comments Got it - thanks Shelby. Can't wait to try it :)


message 49: by June (new)
