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.

Hi Christine, thank you for picking a book for me, I'm not sure how, but this book isn't on the shelf I linked. Would you mind picking another book for me? I don't own this one and the library doesn't have it as well.

Christine Hatfield  (christinesbookshelves) | 1157 comments Michelle I was wondering if you can pick me another book please because I don’t know where that book is because I have so many books in my bookshelf lol


message 33: by Michelle (new)

Michelle | 13 comments Of course. I was going to pick a Nicholas Sparks book for you, but it seems like you read him a lot. So how about let's go with Bone Cold. If that one is hard to find then here's a backup: This Star Won't Go Out. Again, let me know if anything needs to be changed. Happy reading!
