Anna (Adventures with a Book Nerd) (bookish_anna) Ready for the Book Pool?

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

1. When you sign up pick 3 books you want to be included in the "book pool."

2. You can pick any book as long as they are YA and have been released before the challenge has started. No duplicates please.

3. Once the challenge starts you will read books from the "pool."

4. At the end of the month whoever read the most books from the pool is the champion of that month!

Have fun!

The challenge begins on November 1st.
To claim points, please don't finish your books from the pool until then!

You can sign up and add books until October 31th.
After November 1st, you can join right in by claiming points - just don't add books to the pool, and let me know that you're joining if you aren't on the list yet!

Above the box where you post is "add book/author." Just click that, type the name of the book, and at the bottom click cover. If you just want the title to show, click link.
