JULY 2017 Dusty Bookshelf Challenge:

Please post your shelves. NO COMMENTS in this thread please, during the posting phase. After I post the pairings, it will add a link to the shelf, and then you can add discussion comments.

How It Will Work:
1) Please only post no more than 10 books that you would like to read this month.
*I would say minimum 4 books.

2) An assigned person will pick TWO BOOKS from your post series.

3) The assigned person will also recommend ONE MORE book from a Genre of your choice. It is a good idea to give your picker some inspiration by linking to a shelf of books you have in that genre you might want to read!! (See Mod Trea's Post in Message 6 for an example!!)

4) You have one month: JULY 2017 to try to read one of the chosen books. You can read both or all three if you would like, but if you don't read your book this month, it's okay because this challenge is for YOUR ENJOYMENT!!

5) Please try to select for your pair ASAP as we all get excited and waiting is torture to some. Please make a separate post in the thread when you pick for your pair, letting them know what you've picked! FAILURE TO PICK FOR YOUR PARTNER WILL BE NOTED!

6) After you have made your selections, please return to your original bookshelf and update that shelf with the books your chose and the ones chosen for you. FAILURE TO UPDATE YOUR ORIGINAL POST WILL BE NOTED!

7) DO NOT SIGN UP if:

A. You do not think you will remember to pick for your pair on time. It's both unfair and a hassle for people to keep waiting for a pick.

B. If you do not plan to return and update your original post with both the books you picked and the books picked for you. Just please don't sign up, as you make more work for the mod running this challenge.

8)THREE FAILURES IN A ROW OF ANY KIND WILL RESULT IN NOT BEING ALLOWED TO PARTICIPATE FOR THE NEXT MONTH!

TIMELINE:
JUNE 15-21, 2017: Participants will Post their shelves
*If you do not list a shelf, I will not pair you with anyone
***Cut off on JUNE 21: 9:30am EST(8:30am CST)

JUNE 21-26: Pairs will be posted & then Selection of books and posting it for your partner will begin.
*Again, as I said earlier, please try to select for your pair ASAP, and failure to pick for your pairing will be noted.
***Cut off on JUNE 26 @ 9:30am EST(8:30am CST)

**JUNE 26: Re-picks for those who didn’t get the pick

**MOD ASSIST: TCF Mods Ezi, Denise, & Lanelle are also around for assistance.
