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.

Nicole Dunton (willowstarserenity) I will be picking partners in the morning. If anybody still wants to sign up, let me know!


message 14: by Nicole (new)

Nicole Dunton (willowstarserenity) I am so very sorry about not getting partners picked! I will find a way to make this up to you all! I just found out the other day I may have diabetes. And I also found out I got another job! So good news and bad news this week!


message 15: by Susan (new)

Susan (jazzescrapper) | 1590 comments Nicole we all have things that happen to us that are completely out of our control. Life happens to the best of us. This is just a reading challenge and not the end of the world. If people have given you grief over this then they have far to much time on their hands and need to get over it.

My partner is Stephanie

Here are 3 books I have picked for you to choose from

Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng I have just got this from my daughter and would love to buddy read it with someone.

The Cabin at the End of the World by Paul Tremblay I have heard nothing but amazing things about this book.

Nine Perfect Strangers by Liane Moriarty I got this in my Book of the Month a few months ago and I have yet to pick it up...again if you're up to a buddy read let me know :)

Thanks hun! I got Nine Perfect Strangers for BOTM too! I'd love to buddy read with the two of you if you want! Everything I Never Told You is an amazing book, but it's sad for sure.

I would love to buddy read it for sure. You let me know when and I will be happy to start it. We'll see which one Stephanie picks.

I didn't realize it until just now I'm only supposed to pick out one for her? I'm in another challenge just like this and we pick 3. I got confused. I can take it down to 1 if that's what I need to do. If it doesn't matter I will give Stephanie the 3 options still

Finished this today and LOVED it! I don't give 5 stars very often, but this one deserved it. Thanks again for selecting it for me.
