message 10: by Terrie (new)

Terrie | 8 comments Sorry I can't pick or purchase books picked for me. I am on a very limited income and have to read just what's available. I live in the country and dont have access to the library.


message 11: by Linda, A to Z & Pick It For Me & Book Of Month Moderator (new)

Linda Bourg | 478 comments Mod
That's ok Terrie welcome to A to Z, hope you enjoy reading through the alphabet with us through the year. Happy reading :)


message 12: by Brittany (new)

Brittany Hi Linda,
I would like to participate, but have a question. I am constantly working on my to be read list, with review books on top of that. So, if the picked book is one I own, or easily accessible at my library...or a very affordable ebook, then I will be able to do it. I know the person picking the book won't know if I have easy access to the book. If I can't do that particular book, is it ok to pass on it or request that they pick a different one? Or do I just wait till the next month?


message 13: by Linda, A to Z & Pick It For Me & Book Of Month Moderator (new)

Linda Bourg | 478 comments Mod
Brittany that would be fine,because sometimes i don't have access to certain books either. Just let that person know to choose another book from your list or if you want you can make up a new list naming it my available books and then that person will choose from that list for you instead of the to be read list. Hope you can join us, i always enjoyed this challenge. God Bless and have a great day

message 21: by Brenda (new)

Brenda Roberson Linda, after we finish our chosen book what should we do? Come back here and say whether we like it or not? Kinda like a mini review? Or just state whether we read it or not?

Wendy Janine - I picked for you off your z-reading-challenge-novella shelf You Are Here by Liz Fichera You Are Here

Janine wrote: "Sounds like fun. I would like to give it a shot lol"


message 45: by [deleted user] (new)

OK thank you Wendy. I will read it tomorrow as I have it on kindle lol. Now since it is a short novella (only 73 pages) I don't mind if a second book is chosen.


message 46: by [deleted user] (new)

And Linda I have a book chosen for you if no one else joins lol

Do you want me to pick from the same shelf?


message 48: by [deleted user] (new)

Sure that's fine. There is a combo of novellas and novels, and combo of library and kindle books lol


message 49: by Wendy (new)

Wendy Janine wrote: "Sure that's fine. There is a combo of novellas and novels, and combo of library and kindle books lol"

Only problem is there no more of the letters you need in the list.


message 50: by [deleted user] (new)

Wendy wrote: Only problem is there no more of the letters you need in the list."

If that is why you choose it thank you but I didn't even think that way honestly though that would make sense to me. I am not worried about the letter Y since Christmas books usually start with Yuletide or Yule or something. As a matter of fact in November there is a book Yuletide Baby that is on my "new releases" list. I have read authors with V and Y but I didn't list those because of the fact that I know that I can get a hold of books starting with those letters that I have already read in the past years. Q I have read books that have the letter in the title if I can't find anything that starts with the letter Q. X is really the only letter I think I am going to struggle with LOL. So does that help?
