THIS or THAT game.

Which book/series did you prefer? Or which one are you more likely to want to read? This or that? ______ OR ________

Each person will answer the previous question, and then offer a new pair. All the books have to come from the GAR list. It's permissible to select a book you didn't read yet.

I'll start in the next post.

I'll move this topic to the FUN folder once we get started.

Well I suppose that's a key point of the game - To become more familiar with the books you haven't read yet. I've been picking the one that sounds more appealing to me, even if I read the other. You could even just pick the book you are more likely to read in the next year or so.
