Jacquelyn (jacquelynreads) | 19024 comments Duration: August 16 to September 15, 2014
Sign up will be open until: August 15
Partners will be picked on: August 15

In this challenge you will only be reading books that you haven't spent a cent on. (example: free ebooks, books from library, books given to you as presents, etc.)

Guidelines for this challenge
1. Sign up ahead of time so we can create pairs
2. Create a "shelf" for your partner to choose from before the challenge begins and link it when you sign up.
3. You choose 3 books from your partner's shelf for your partner to read. Let your partner know why you pick those books for him/her.
4. Your partner picks three books from your shelf for you to read. You don't have to read all 3, one should be enough for you to complete this challenge.
5. After you read your book come back and post to let your partner know when you are done and what you thought of the book (no pressure, it can be just one sentence)

If you have questions, please post them HERE

Please sign up below and post a link to your shelf for your partner to choose from!

Great! Could you link me to a shelf so your partner has somewhere to pick your books from?


message 6: by Paulina (new)

Paulina (littledreammer) | 279 comments The shelf that we will create for our partners must have books read by us or we can choose those that we want?


message 7: by Jacquelyn, thebrunettebooknerd (new)

Jacquelyn (jacquelynreads) | 19024 comments Paulina, this list should have books you haven't read. Preferably books you didn't pay for (books you got as presents, library books, free ebooks, etc) but you can really use any books. That way when you are paired up with a partner, that partner can go through and pick 3 books for you to read.


message 8: by Mandiann (new)

Mandiann (goodreadscommandiann) | 7495 comments Yay!! Here is my shelf but I will edit it before the challenge starts.

Paige Hello! Im sorry for the inconvenience i am about to cause, but I do not understand still what this is. (I am new to goodreads). It says to create a shelf, but then what??

Again, super sorry for not understanding!


message 13: by Jacquelyn, thebrunettebooknerd (new)

Jacquelyn (jacquelynreads) | 19024 comments Create a shelf and then link it here. Then on the 15th partners will be assigned and they will pick 3 books of the shelf for you to read during the month and you will do the same for them. No need to be sorry. :)

OK thanks! It would be a problem to find many books cause my local library has only a few interesting books :'(

Not sure if anyone has asked this yet but if we have any ARC copies can we add them on our list or do they have to be published already?

Advanced Reader Copy. They are books that haven't been released yet that reviewers get to give them a review.
