☆☆Hannah☆☆ | 7288 comments Duration: September 1-30
Sign up will be open until: August 31

Partners will be picked on the same day!


Guidelines for this challenge:
* Sign up ahead of time so we can create pairs (see dates below)
* Create a "shelf" for your partner to choose from before the challenge begins
* You choose 3 books from your partners shelf for your partner to read
* Your partner picks three from your shelf for you to read
*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)

**** The challenge is to read one book from your shelf that your partner chose. You do not have to read all three! (It's just to give a choice) ****


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