And here it is--your newest monthly challenge.
September

Several of you mentioned liking the “Read with Friends” challenge, and I enjoyed it too. So, here it is….

Read 10 books you have chosen from the libraries of 10 different friends. Be sure to name the friend that you get the book from.

And, for those of you who have few friends—we are all open to friend invites, not just for this challenge, but generally.

I'm going to offer a suggestion here to make finding reading material from your friends easier. It's what I usually do.

I pull down books that I think that I might want to read in the month, then plug their title into GR. The book will pop up, and show how many of your friends have read the book or have it listed in their TBR list. The reason for doing it this way is--well, I personally have over 4k books that I've READ on my bookshelves. That's over 140 pages worth of books. I don't want to go through that many books, and I certainly don't expect you all to do it either.

Just trying to make your lives easier in September.

Dee - Tempted 9/5
Tom - Serpent's Kiss
Mich - Burn for Me 9/13
Jen - Born of Night 9/17
Lauren - Dark Awakening 9/20

Nidhi Bhatt | 22 comments I want to try this too. I am new to challenges, but I would love the thrill to complete the books in September.

So first I ask my friends about which book they and I have in common on our tbr list and then check for Library availability?


message 12: by Ann aka Iftcan (new)

Ann aka Iftcan (iftcan) | 2659 comments Mod
Nidhi, you don't have to ask your friends which books you have in common. Just check their bookshelves. Then check your library. Or check your library first, make a list, then check and see which of your friends have that book on their shelves--and it's ANY book on their shelf. Read or TBR, not just TBR.

Nidhi Bhatt | 22 comments Oh I am to go through the tbr lists of all participants and then go select books which I want to read and make a list of 10 book myself? or is this a buddy-read and I have to ask the people to read that book with me?


message 15: by Rachel (new)

Rachel | 192 comments If I remember right, you don't need to do a buddy-read. Think of it as taking inspiration from a friend's tbr list. You don't even have to tell them! It's also a great opportunity to make new friends on GR and to try some new books that your friends enjoyed.

I'm open for adds! This is my fav challenge in this group!

Actually, you don't even have to stick to the TBR list. I don't have any books in my TBR (I'm too lazy, and, well, my TBR pile rather resembles a mountain range--and that's just the dead tree books. I have a Nook AND a Kindle, and have multiple thousand books on both--and they are different titles too.) All you need to do is see if the book you want to read is on your friends bookshelf--tbr, already read, I wish I could find, whatever. :o)

Can't say that I'm over the top about it, but it's interesting. And she finally hooked up with Jean-Claude ;) Poor Richard, but she had no future with him LOL

I am finishing Burnt Offerings (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, #7) by Laurell K. Hamilton and I hope it gets better in the next book, because all the raping doesn't endear this series to me :(

Irene--it's not going to get any better. That's the last of the Anita books where the story is the important part of the book. I read another 2 books after it, and it just got worse and worse, so I quit reading them. But I do love the early books in the series, and so I just pretend like LKH's evil identical twin sister killed her off and took over her life and series, so the later books have nothing to do with the "real" Anita. But that's just my opinion. The Meridith Gentry series, which she started at about the same time starts out with the porn, so I didn't mind that as much as I did the Anita change.
