Pick for Me Challenge!!!

Come one, come all! It's fun... really!!!

1. Create a new shelf, or update the existing shelf on your Goodreads profile, that includes approximately 20 books that you would like to have someone else use to pick a book for you to read. Label it "Pick For Me." Only books from this designated shelf will be selected for this challenge, (no matter how badly some of us want to pick something else)!

2. Post in this thread that you want to participate this month.

3. Provide the link to your Pick For Me shelf, (this will make it a bit easier for all parties involved... unless you all really *want* to read Harry Potter! *a new month, a new pick from me!*)

4. On the last day of the month, Fabi/Kooloo will use the randomizer to pair up everyone. (Or worst case scenario, Grey will pick for everyone, and you *know* what that means, LOL!)

5. 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.

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

7. 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.

**The sign up period will remain open until pairs are posted on April 1st and you'll have until April 4th to select a book for your partner.**

Nay (4ukcats) | 3499 comments Just let me know when you're finished with Hunted: Saved by the Billionaire Bad Boy *snicker* (not snickering about the possible goodness of the book, just about all that awful title! lol Who knows, it could be awesome!), and I'm ready to start whenever. This afternoon, tonight, tomorrow morning--whichever you say.

Nay (4ukcats) | 3499 comments I went ahead and set up the BR thread for Enslaved: The Life of Anna (or The Life of Anna, Part 1) if anyone wants to join Lisa and me.

message 21: by Jan (new)

Jan (jan130) I've been away for most of March on a holiday (in New Zealand!!! It was great!!!!) and haven't got as much reading done as usual this month. So I'm waaayyyy behind on all my challenge reads. But I'm in for April. Why the heck not? Same shelf as usual. *goes to check shelf and see what's hangin' there*


message 22: by Melinda (new)

Melinda Ruyten | 1025 comments I wondered where you were? Did you have a nice holiday?
Welcome back.

Thanks. Yeah I had a great time. It's gotta be one of the most scenically beautiful places in the world, esp. the south island. Milford Sound. Just wow.

I liked the book too. Be interested to hear what you think of the film.

Can't wait to be randomised ;)


message 29: by Melinda (new)

Melinda Ruyten | 1025 comments That looks lovey Jan. My 2 younger daughters went to New Zealand as exchange students.They loved it. They went to Christchurch. One of them was staying with a really rich family and they had a helicopter and took her around the island. Then they parked in a paddock walked across the paddock had lunch then continued on their journey. It’s on my bucket list.

Jan (jan130) Wow Melinda. Pretty cool exchange family lol

message 33: by Tessa (new)

Tessa | 1761 comments I pick for you. I thought for sure a historical was going to pop out at me, but you have a Mercy book begging to be picked. So, Night Broken (Mercy Thompson, #8) by Patricia Briggs


message 34: by Tessa (new)

Tessa | 1761 comments I doubt you will, but don't pick Half-Blood for Jean. She's read that one already. :)


message 35: by Tessa (new)

Tessa | 1761 comments And thank you, Kooloo!!


message 36: by Lisa (new)

Lisa Aiello (lisaaiello) | 2458 comments Grey - I am picking Wolfsong for you. If you love it even half as much as I did, then it'll be a great book for you!!!


message 37: by Nay (new)

Nay (4ukcats) | 3499 comments Yay, Tessa! I have you! Looking at your list...


message 38: by Nay (new)

Nay (4ukcats) | 3499 comments Ok, Tessa, I haven’t read any on your list (I listened to half of Blood of the Earth, but it didn’t grab me like Jane Yellowrock, although Khristine Hvam is an awesome narrator), so I’m picking one of the books that I really want to read and I have no idea why I haven’t read it yet.

Atheists Who Kneel and Pray Atheists Who Kneel and Pray by Tarryn Fisher

I hope you love it!
