Michaele | 4088 comments 2018 August PIFM Challenge

What is the Pick-It-For-Me Challenge?

The Pick-It-For-Me Challenge (PIFM) is a reading challenge where each participant gives and receives book recommendations based on a given a set of rules. The assignment method and book selection rules change each month so it’s always new and always different.

The idea of the PIFM challenge is that you will get new-to-you books and authors selected for you as well as a push to read some books that have been lingering on your shelves. You may not be interested in the new books recommended, which is why you also get a minimum of four books from your shelf.

You only have to read ONE book to complete this challenge!

After signups are closed, your names and any extra info will go into the super secret PIFM randomizer and it will select someone for you to recommend books to and someone to give you recommendations. This list will be posted along with any specific picking rules for the month.

In order to participate you need to either HAVE YOUR PROFILE SET TO PUBLIC(preferable), or friend the person giving you recommendations. PLEASE NOTE: if you choose to keep your profile private, it is your responsibility to send a friend request to the person picking for you as soon as possible after the matchups are posted. Whether your profile is private or not, it is also very important that your profile be set to receive Private Messages (PMs) in case anyone needs to reach out to you (mods, organizer etc.)

Everything gets done in this thread so be sure to come back often!!!

Repicks:
You can ask for repicks if:
✱ The books picked for you are not yet released.
✱ If you have already read the chosen book(s) and they are on your ‘read’ shelf.
✱ If you did not receive four picks from your ‘to-read’ shelf, with at least one from your preferred shelf.

You may NOT ask for repicks because:
✱ A book is not available at your library.
✱ A genre or author you don’t enjoy.

INFORMATION NEEDED TO SIGN UP
Please sign up in this thread with the answer to the following question:

✱✱ As a kid, how excited were you to go back to school? ✱✱

a) I couldn’t wait until school started
b) I couldn’t wait to shop the back to school sales
c) I always wanted time for one last hurrah (I’m not ready for school!)
d) School? Damn.

✱✱ If you have a preferred shelf, please list it along with your pick! ✱✱

IMPORTANT DATES
Sign ups will remain open until July 24 3 pm US EDT.
For your convenience a Time Zone Converter .

You’ll have until July 28 8 pm US EDT to make your recommendations.

Please do not start reading your book(s) until the first of the month. You then have the entire month to read your pick(s) and give some feedback.

If you’re new please read the PIFM Guidelines and FAQ . If you have any questions that are not addressed there, please feel free to ask!


✱Please note that late sign ups will be included at the host's discretion and no one will be included after re-picks are assigned!✱

Michaele | 4088 comments TIPS TO MAKE THE CHALLENGE ENJOYABLE FOR EVERYONE!


Pickees
✱ To help your picker understand the type of books you like or are currently reading, please make sure your ‘read’ shelf is up to date. You can create shelves for books you DNFed (Did Not Finish) or authors that don’t work for you as well as favorite books and authors. In addition, you might consider updating your profile. You can include info about your favorite books, authors, genres, themes or tropes (or themes/tropes you dislike – i.e. secret baby).
✱ Please do not specify likes/dislikes in the sign-up thread. This information will not be included in the pairings and your pickee may not see your message and does not need to rely on that information when making picks.

Pickers
✱ Please remember this is primarily a romance readers group. Thus, most, if not all, of your picks should be romance. There are various sub genres within the romance category - Contemporary, Historical, Paranormal, Romantic Suspense, Erotica, M/M, Urban Fantasy. If your pickee reads a wide variety, you could add a non-romance as a choice.

✱ Choose at least 4 new titles for your pickee. These can be brand new to them (not found on any of their shelves) or a book found on their shelves if they've never read any of the author's work previously.

A few hints to help with book selection:
✱ Check the book’s publishing date. Select "date pub" from the checkbox selections and save.
✱ Check pickee's personalized shelves, especially their exclusive shelves. A personalized shelf is one the member has created. (e.g., 'to read next', 'favorites' ‘didn’t like’)
✱ Make sure the books you choose are not on their 'read' shelf. Just because it isn't rated doesn't mean it wasn't read.
✱ Look at your pickee's 'read' shelf and see what genres they have recently read or read the most. Reviewing their ‘read’ shelf might help you in choosing something they are interested in reading right now.
✱ If your pickee reads lots of books in a genre you are not familiar with (erotic romance, GLBT, YA, etc.) Contact the Mods or the month's organizer for guidance.
✱ Include a variety of books (e.g., shorter page count, new addition to their 'to-read' shelf, an older book on their 'to-read' shelf) This variety gives your pickee options when choosing the book or books they will be reading this month. Use the sort feature within their shelves to determine date a book was added, published or read; page numbers, ratings, etc.

If you want to volunteer to make repicks:
✱ We love that you want to help out, but please remember those who need picks have been waiting for a long time already. Please only volunteer if you are able to make the repicks within a few hours of the deadline. Thank you!

Thank you Michaele! I *think* it's a-PIFM-shelf as the only other one labeled PIFM doesn't have anything in it. Process of elimination!

You have a ton of books on your shelf, so I hope the new ones I was able to find sound good to you.

1. Bookworm: Love this title from your TBR - How to Hook a Bookworm by Cassie Mae. I liked this book so much, I immediately bought book 2 and 3 as Ivy was just an awesome character who was really more bored than lazy - Slouch Witch by Helen Harper.

How to Hook a Bookworm (How To, #3) by Cassie Mae Slouch Witch (The Lazy Girl's Guide to Magic, #1) by Helen Harper

2. Nerd/Geek: I've been enjoying this series - Talen by Rebecca Zanetti and hopefully I'm right in remembering the heroine is in research. I saw you liked Jennifer Crusie, so I thought you might enjoy this mad-cap caper with very kooky characters and circumstances - The Escape Diaries by Juliet Rosetti.

Talen (Dark Protectors, #7.9) by Rebecca Zanetti The Escape Diaries (Life and Love on the Lam, #1) by Juliet Rosetti

3. Mean Girl/Bully: I enjoy the reclusive romance male author bit in Single White Vampire by Lynsay Sands. I know this is on your TBR as well, but you need to read it. Both this series (except maybe the last one) and the spinoff series are great - Lick by Kylie Scott.

Single White Vampire (Argeneau #3) by Lynsay Sands Lick (Stage Dive, #1) by Kylie Scott

4. Jock: Total Rush by Deidre Martin is definitely a sports romance. Or check out when a free-spirit personal chef moves to a small town to work for an elderly woman who is just starting to enjoy life and comes against her staid eldest grandson in Fool for Love by Beth Ciotta

Total Rush (New York Blades, #3) by Deirdre Martin Fool for Love (Cupcake Lovers, #1) by Beth Ciotta

5. Loner: A couple mysteries for you with Lethal Bayou Beauty by Jana DeLeon or one of my favorite series, which while older has amazing characters - Murder by Impulse by D.R. Meredith.

Lethal Bayou Beauty (Miss Fortune Mystery #2) by Jana Deleon Murder by Impulse by D.R. Meredith

6. Class Clown: A pretty yellow flower on the cover of A Little Red Magic Novella-Strange Brew by Eliza Fleetwood. To Woo A Warrior by Jane Cousins is a humorous PNR. Hadleigh is a 6'6' warrior who couldn't be girly to save her life and her matchmaking relative sent her to work at a paranormal reality show.

A Little Red Magic Novella-Strange Brew by Eliza Fleetwood To Woo A Warrior (Southern Sanctuary, #1) by Jane Cousins

7. Teacher’s Pet: pretty fall colors on Hallowed Ground. Or check out my favorite author, Jayne Ann Krentz with Promise Not to Tell where a childhood tragedy is coming back to haunt the heroine.

Hallowed Ground (PI Julie Collins, #2) by Lori G. Armstrong Promise Not to Tell (Cutler, Sutter & Salinas #2) by Jayne Ann Krentz

8. New Kid: Somebody to Love by Lori Wilde sounds like a small town homecoming story. Or check out a suspense novel where the small town Casey moved to houses people who are running from something (and no one can leave) and she needs to use her homicide detective skills in City of the Lost by Kelley Armstrong.

Somebody to Love (Cupid, Texas, #3) by Lori Wilde City of the Lost (Rockton, #1) by Kelley Armstrong
