If you've never played, here are the rules:

Directions:

1. When you sign up pick 3 books you want to be included in the "book pool." Message these to Zoe, this will be your sign up to compete as well!

2. You can pick any book as long as they have been released before the challenge has started.

3. Once the challenge starts you will read books from the "pool" and log your progress here.

4. At the end of the month whomever participates by reading books from the pool wins 1 "complete" towards a prize!

We have a ton of awesome books in the pool this month! I am totally convinced there is something here for everyone!

If you're stuck on what to read next pick a book from the pool (:

Please let us know on this thread if you read any of these books this month !

ah no! which ones?


message 8: by Mion (new)

Mion Luisa Rey (TurnerPendragon) | 247 comments I've got Orbital Cloud, Carve the Mark and When Dimple Met Rishi coming.

I'm almost tempted to go and borrow something else from the library, but I think in this book pool, there are as many books I have read as the ones I haven't. Maybe I'll give one of the Hosseini books a try after I finish Tales of Moonlight and Rain.

I love Khaled Hosseini books! I highly recommend- do you purchase books more or borrow them from the library?

I do both, but I usually only buy books that I'm completely certain about or which are impossible to get here (which is a lot of books) or which arrive in our stores like 2-4 weeks after I find myself interested in them. Books are ridiculously expensive here, so I borrow most books that I can.
