Fabi | 872 comments Pick for Me Challenge!!!

It's that time again.

1. Create a new shelf or update your existing shelf on your bookshelf that includes approximately 20 books that you would like to have someone use to pick a book for you to read. Books will only be selected from the shelf you choose.

2. Post in this thread that you want to participate and provide a link to you Pick For Me shelf. If you played last month, I have your link. If you skipped a month or are new to the challenge, please post a link to your shelf.

3. On the last day of the month I’ll use the randomizer to pair up everyone.

4. Friend your partner who is picking for you or set your profile to public or your partner will not be able to access your shelf.

5. Post your selection for your partner in this thread.

6. Come back after finishing the book selected for you by your partner (even if it's after the month has ended) and let everybody know what you think about it.

Sign up period will remain open until pairs are posted on October 31st and you'll have until November 5th to select a book for your partner.

message 37: by Grey (new)

Grey | 2385 comments Mod
Omg, wtf, did i? Fabiiii... What happened?


message 38: by Leslie (new)

Leslie | 2430 comments I think I am having a book anxiety attack. I am stressing myself out over a bunch of challenges I committed to for 2017 and I don't feel like I can finish them. (NOT this challenge, I love this) Its making me feel like I'm back in school with a required reading list.

I don't want to read old books in my TBR I want to read new shinies.

That's it! I am totally revamping my "pick for me" list. Other challenges be damned!!!


message 39: by Ela (new)

Ela | 4279 comments OMG! Leslie!!!! It feels so like school and I MISS SCHOOL!


message 40: by Leslie (new)

Leslie | 2430 comments Ugh Ela! Not me. College gave me anxiety.


message 41: by Nay (new)

Nay (4ukcats) | 3499 comments Good for you, Leslie!!


message 42: by Leslie (new)

Leslie | 2430 comments Life's too short to not read what I feel like it. Right?

Ok, list revised. 😊


message 43: by Amy (new)

Amy (amy_nm) | 140 comments Am I too late to throw my name in for November? 🙏 I missed out last month.

Amy's pick-for-me list


message 44: by Leslie (new)

Leslie | 2430 comments You are good Amy and i know what I am picking if I get you!!!


message 45: by Amy (new)

Amy (amy_nm) | 140 comments Oooooh, I can't wait!! *rubs hands together*


message 46: by Kooloo (new)

Kooloo | 596 comments When do we start this again?!!


message 47: by Jean (new)

Jean | 1657 comments Fabi will usually do the picks on November 1st unless someone bugs her to do it earlier....*cough cough, Ela*

Then, you have the whole month to read it!


message 48: by Ela (new)

Ela | 4279 comments Well technically Fabi usually will be good to us and post something the day before the first (in the US) because it's technically the 1st in Australia... And then there are days we can't find Fabi any where!


message 49: by Lisa (new)

Lisa Aiello (lisaaiello) | 2458 comments I just have to say one more time - like I don't say it every month - this is the BEST challenge ever. The excitement of picking for someone and having someone pick for you....I can hardly wait until the 1st each month!


message 50: by Jean (new)

Jean | 1657 comments I'm excited too. I think I'll update my Pick For Me list tonight.

And speaking of which....where the heck has Fabi been??
