What's a TBR Pick-It-For-Me Challenge?

Like the name implies, those who participate in this monthly challenge will have a book selected for them by a partner. Partners will be randomly paired up. You will choose a book for your partner from their to read list (TBR), and they will choose one for you.

Once you have picked the book, come back to this thread and post what book you have chose for your partner. Also send a message to the person with the name of the book you have selected for them. Then when you're done with your book, come back to this thread and post your opinion so we know you have completed the challenge.

For this challenge, you need to either HAVE YOUR PROFILE SET TO PUBLIC (preferable) or make the person you're paired with your friend. I strongly advise keeping your bookshelves updated, otherwise you might end up with a recommendation for something that you've already read.

Sign up period will remain open until September 28 and you'll have until October 1st to select a book for your partner.

***Please note***Everything will be done in this thread so check it often. Also, please be sure you really, really want to participate. Once I pair up people, it makes it difficult to re-pair when someone decides not to participate

If I have missed anyone just message me.


message 27: by Carrie (last edited Sep 28, 2012 08:44AM) (new)

Carrie  | 174 comments When I click on the link for Nuzaifa it sends me to some guy named Tim, http://www.goodreads.com/user/show/49

And the link next to my name isn't to my profile as well. Just a heads up that the rest might me off too.

All the links seem to be wrong :) I just sent a PM to Leigh to let her know :)


message 29: by Leigh, Wonder Woman (new)

Leigh | 11286 comments Mod
Heather, I will give you two choices The Help by Kathryn Stockett or The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. I loved both books. I hope you like one of them.

Ok, that's good. I was just about to do that too. Won't now, don't want to flood her.

@Iesha, the links are currently leading to wrong people's profiles. You're paired with a girl named Laura (but the link leads to a man's profile), so I think we should just wait awhile with contacting people until Leigh checks the links :) ;)


message 32: by Julissa (new)

Julissa (Ta2kitty) | 35 comments My partner's name is Minnie but the link goes to someone named Joe...Is there another link I can try?


message 33: by Leigh, Wonder Woman (new)

Leigh | 11286 comments Mod
I fixed the links. Something happened when I copied them orginally. I'm sorry for any inconvience.


message 34: by Leigh, Wonder Woman (new)

Leigh | 11286 comments Mod
Copying that many links can cause problems. I think I have it fixed but if there is a problem just message me.


message 35: by *Angela* (new)

*Angela* | 134 comments Three choice for Tawna this month:

Beautiful Disaster (Beautiful, #1) by Jamie McGuire Broken  by Megan Hart Onyx (Lux, #2) by Jennifer L. Armentrout
