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 Jezebel. *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 June 1st and you'll have until June 4th to select a book for your partner.**

message 9: by Lisa (new)

Lisa Aiello (lisaaiello) | 2459 comments I'm behind on my May challenges for sure. I got my Pick for Me done. I'm working on my ATF right now. Still have to do the TBR Continuation of Series one. I kinda got myself bogged down with every ARC imaginable. I can't seem to not sign up for those, and then I feel all kinds of pressure.


message 10: by Jean (new)

Jean | 1657 comments Ditto Lisa! I think the only one I didn't complete was the continuation of the series too. I have to check!

Same. Speaking of, I need to get my shit in a pile. I have a proof that I need to finish and then like a dozen ARC's... not quite, but several... and a beta that I *want* to read. Gah, #firstworldproblems, LOL!

Oooh, Lisa! Am I remembering correctly that you're reading Painted Faces? One of my most-loved books!

message 24: by Ela (new)

Ela | 4283 comments Hi Michele! *waving with glitter* YES we are that type of bunch... So basically just like the Bad Mommy thread we would/will set up another BR thread for this book and you can join. Also, we have a bunch of monthly reading challenges! Lots of fun!

Leslie | 2430 comments Hi Michele! 🙋 We love "fresh meat" for our challenges. So welcome! 🤗

Just add a bunch of books to your "pick for me" shelf and who gets you will choose your book to read for June from that list. Then whoever you get, you will choose a book off their list for them to read.

Leslie | 2430 comments Which reminds me...I need to update my shelf.

Ooooh. I see goodies! :) Course, if I get you, I'm going to make you read Mafia and his Angel. I need more people to read it so everyone knows how insanely wonderful that story really is.

Let that be a warning to all of you. If I get you, and you have that book on your list, I will pick it for you. Ask Jean, you'll thank me for it later. Oh, unless I know you won't like it. Then I'll tell you don't read it. :)


message 33: by Jan (new)

Jan (jan130) 'fresh meat'. *shakes head* LOL. Welcome Stephanie and Michele.
