Greta (goodreadsgreta) | 4571 comments Clean Your Shelf - Spring Buddy Challenge

In the spirit of spring-cleaning, we're going to tackle our TBR shelves. Since it has been a while since we've had one, this is going to be a partners challenge.

This will be especially good for people who may have dozens or even hundreds of books on their TBR shelf just waiting to be read.

Challenge Period: March 21 - April 3
Here's how it works:

1. First look through your TBR shelf for books you know you are willing to read soon (either you own them, or you know you can get a hold of them right away and most importantly you still have an interest in reading them!) Then pick 20 books and put them on a new shelf called "Clean Your Shelf Challenge"

2. Sign up on this thread that you are participating, and you will be assigned a partner. Please only sign up if you're really interested in participating, as your partner will be counting on you. Also, if your profile is set to private you may have to change that for the duration of the challenge or "friend" your partner.

3. Your partner will pick books off your "Clean Your Shelf" for you to read. He/she will pick 10 out of your 20 books and post them on this thread in the order they want you to read them. They might also add why they're choosing a book for you.
ex.My partner is ___ and I choose for her to read..
1st Die for Me (Revenants, #1) by Amy Plum 2nd Vampire Academy (Vampire Academy, #1) by Richelle Mead 3rd etc.
I chose these books because....

5. Read you books and then post your reviews on the companion thread:

6. The group who has read the most books will each win an ebook prize. Here's the link to our prize list: http://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/1...
Rules: No rereads, graphic novels, only one book per person allowed that is fewer than 100 pages (pages must be shown on Goodreads or Amazon), and all books must be started, finished, and reviewed during the challenge period. An extra point will be given for buddy reads that take place in our group. We reserve the right to ask for more details in any review that is too vague as to give a clear sense that the individual has read the book.

Greta (goodreadsgreta) | 4571 comments After talking with Jalyn, and since the purpose of this challenge is really to read books we might have been waiting to read for awhile, we are going to allow each person one book/extra/or novella that is under 100 pages. :)

I'm actually having so much fun looking at everyone's shelves!


message 36: by Mei (new)

Mei (yeltminky) | 3878 comments So we must, at least, read most of the books w/in March 21-April 3? :)


message 37: by Jalyn (new)

Jalyn (jalynnie) | 3847 comments You read as many as you can between those dates, but you have to read them in the order that your partner picks them for you. So you start with whatever book your partner gives you first and after you read that you read the second book they picked for you, etc. That's why you have to put the books that you already have or have easy access to (library or friend or can buy on an ereader) on you Clean Your Shelf Shelf. We're going to give out an ebook to each person in the group that reads the most books.


message 38: by Mei (new)
