Nicole Dunton (willowstarserenity) Having trouble getting through your to read shelf? Can't decide what to read next? Would you like someone to choose a book for you to read? This is a monthly challenge where participants get paired up randomly and their partner picks a book for them to read. If this sounds like fun to you, welcome to this month's Pick It For Me challenge!

Sign ups end on the 24th. Partners will be assigned shortly thereafter. Book choices for your partners are to be given on or before the 1st. Please check back often during that time to be sure that you don't miss anything!

Guidelines
** Sign up below with your to-read shelf (or the shelf you prefer your picks to come from). Please do this so I will not have to guess which one.
* Please be sure that your profile is set to public, or that you friend your partner so that they can see your shelves. - IF YOUR PROFILE IS NOT SET TO PUBLIC, PLEASE PROVIDE A LIST FOR YOUR PARTNER TO CHOOSE FROM

If you do not plan to participate or are unsure if you can pick a novel for your partner, PLEASE, PLEASE do not sign up. It is very difficult to re-pair individuals once we are underway.

After your partner selects a book for you, be sure and check back in each week or so to let us know your progress. Tell us if you like the book, love it or think it is just so-so.

I'm waiting until I see how many people are participating to decide. I am giving everybody until the 28th this month since I waited so late to open the post. If there's an odd number, I'll be throwing my name into the list. If there's an even number, I'll be throwing my list in comments for anybody to pick for me. :)

Thanks Leticia, I've been meaning to read it for a while but sometimes I think I need a bit of a push to read classics because I think 'well they'll always be there' thanks for giving me the push!

Some people request that we pick two from their list. When they do, we pick two. But I'm sure if you ask, some won't mind you picking more than one.

@Christine thanks for the pick! I forgot to take that down from last month but I still need to read it so it works! Would you like me to pick you one out?
