Hello all!

The time has come to choose your book selections for your July 2017 read in the PIFM challenge.

The rules are:-

* You can choose any number of books. A minimum of two and up to a maximum of 10.

* Please, only ONE MESSAGE per member. That means NO REPLYING or CHATTING in this thread.

* Once you have made your selections and posted, when your votes start to come in you can then add your votes cast by other members beneath your book titles ie. the following might be how my list would look:-

Little Black Lies - Sharon Bolton
x 1 - Christine

Pretty Girls - Karin Slaughter
x 1 - Brenda
x 1 - Perri

How you post is your choice, you can link, do pictures, the above is just an example. The key is that you stick with the one message and update it as the votes come in. Your list can be placed when the July threads go up.

* I apologize for what looks like info dump, but that's the way it was credited on the GR page I got the book URL from.

**If you've followed me for a while, this is NOT my usual format. I've changed it by eliminating every book in previous lists that I can't find through Inter Library Loan, which I only use if I can't find it in my library's database.
