Fran | 11053 comments 2019 January 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:

✱✱ How do you feel about Colton as the new Bachelor?✱✱
A. Very excited!
B. Mildly interested
C. I will probably not watch


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

IMPORTANT DATES
Sign ups will remain open until December 23rd - 10 am US EST.
For your convenience a Time Zone Converter .

You’ll have until December 28th - 11 am US EST 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!✱

Fran | 11053 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.

✱ You will be using 8 picking rules to select books for you pickee. 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. The remaining 4 titles should come from your pickee's tbr, with a minimum of one from their preferred shelves if provided. Be sure to pick at least one book for each picking rule, but please limit your picks to no more than two books per rule as sometimes having too many options is worse than too few.

Please remember when you are giving new recommendations, you are not limited to titles that you have read. You can choose books that are new releases, on your tbr, or titles you looked up on Goodreads or Amazon that you think your pickee would enjoy.

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!

We didn't have many books in common, so I tried to give you a variety of new picks, plus I found a couple things to put on my wishlist.

1. Colton is a virgin: This sounds fun and ended up on my wishlist - Love and Chaos by Elizabeth Peters. You loved Bet Me by Jennifer Crusie, so give Agnes and the Hitman a try, I can never decide which of the two is my favorite by her.

Love and Chaos by Elizabeth Powers Agnes and the Hitman by Jennifer Crusie

2. He's a former football star: fits both sports and green cover - The Hooker and the Hermit by L.H. Cosway. Or check out a college hockey star who needs help with a class so he makes a deal to be pretend dating to bring her to the attention of her crush (one of my favorite characters ever) in The Deal by Elle Kennedy.

The Hooker and the Hermit (Rugby, #1) by L.H. Cosway The Deal (Off-Campus, #1) by Elle Kennedy

3. Colton is obsessed with his black dog, Sniper: The Man in the Black Suit by Sylvain Reynard. Or give paranormal romance a try (ignore the cheesy cover) with one of the greats - Ilona Andrews On the Edge.

The Man in the Black Suit by Sylvain Reynard On the Edge (The Edge, #1) by Ilona Andrews

4. Colton used to own a restaurant called 4th & Goal Grill in Washington D.C.: from your TBR we have Hired To Love with a 4.39 rating. Or check out a cozy mystery where a skeleton racer is sent to run her aunt's café in Australia to hide from the press and finds a dead body in Death Down Under by Samantha Silver.

Hired To Love by Jordan Lynde Death Down Under (Ruby Bay Mystery Book 1) by Samantha Silver

5. He went on "Bachelor in Paradise" after getting sent home from The Bachelorette: I managed to find some trees on the cover of Brush with Love. Set in historical England (which I would love to visit) is a fun re-telling of Beauty and the Beast in Romancing the Duke by Tessa Dare.

Brush with Love by Lisa McKendrick Romancing the Duke (Castles Ever After, #1) by Tessa Dare

6. Colton is 26 years old: A couple of two word titles with Starry Eyes by Jenn Bennett or Something Borrowed by Louisa George where a wedding planner has to work with her ex''s best man to save her business.

Starry Eyes by Jenn Bennett Something Borrowed by Louisa George

7. He is hoping to find a wife, ending his single status: a couple stand-alone titles with He Loves Lucy by Susan Donovan which somehow manages to be a cute story while the heroine is trying to lose 100 pounds. Or check out Attachments by Rainbow Rowell where a night IT worker falls for a day worker just from reading her conversations with another co-worker (this is pretty much chick-lit but with a male lead).

He Loves Lucy by Susan Donovan Attachments by Rainbow Rowell

8. Colton was born in Indianapolis and grew up in the small town of Washington, Illinois: I'm fairly sure this is a small town romance - Until We Kissed by Heather B. Moore (I added the first book in the series to my wishlist). Or a cool short story when online gaming buddies meet up at a convention and danger enters in Gaming for Keeps by Seleste deLaney.

Until We Kissed (Pine Valley #6) by Heather B. Moore Gaming for Keeps (Agents of TRAIT #1) by Seleste deLaney
