If you wish to participate with the October 3018 Buddy Picks TBR, please comment below with your name 🤓.

This is going to be so much fun. It is hoped that this will help members to get to know each other a little bit more and find out more about what books we all like to read. I love having a nosy through other people’s bookshelves too.

Remember sign ups close midnight on 7th September (GMT UK time).

okay I made my list. some are things i'm not in the middle of but the ones I put that i'm "currently reading" are books I haven't picked up in 6 months or LONGER. like YEARS longer. so I added them because I need the kick in the pants to get them finished! Hope that is allowed.

That is perectly fine. Sounds like a brilliant way to get your reading done x

lol that's what I thought. I have 18 currently reading books and like 10 of them haven't been touched in so long. not because I don't want to finish them but new stuff always catches my attention first. but I would love for that list to dwindle so why not hahaha but I added in a fair amount of new reads as well.

Hello all,

Sign ups has now closed. Yay!!

As there were only 5 people signed up this time around I have assigned a TBR shelf to each of you to choose a book for using the list randomiser option on Random. Org rather than pairing you all up. If we get more people signing up for the November Buddy Picks then it may be possible to pair up buddies, however I hoping that this current method will prove to be more beneficial to participation and discussion throughout the month. Let me know what you think as time goes on so I can ensure that it is better each round.

Anyway please see your assigned buddy to choose a book for:

BUDDY PICKS FROM TBR

Bonnie Kelli Anne
Jenny Eden
Eden Christine
Christine Bonnie
Kelli Anne Jenny

Please see below the schedule in order to make sure you have your tbr shelf updated accordingly. Any questions let me know x

Have fun browsing!!

Hi Kelli Anne.

I chose Wicked: The life and times
Of the wicked witch of the west. I thought it would be. Great time for you to finish a book and use it to contribute towards one or more of the challenges for October. Yay!!

Hope you enjoy my TBR pick for you xx


message 18: by Jenny (new)

Jenny (diggensjenny) Eden, I chose for you A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab :)

Thanks, Kelli Anne. I am looking forward to starting this challenge.

Hi all. Just to clarify that the buddy system for the month of October is more like a round robin or relay based on the fact that there were an odd number of participants.

* Bonnie will pick for - Kelli Anne
* Jenny will pick for - Eden
* Eden will pick for - Christine
* Christine will pick for - Bonnie
* Kelli Anne will pick for - Jenny

I just wanted to make sure that there were no confusion in the allocation.

Although I have a confession to make: I have had a nosy through ALL of your SBC TBR shelves! 🤓📖🤓📖🤓

Ok I’m curious about this Hades Hangmen series. So I chose It Ain’t Me for you to read.


Purple Bookish Frog (Bonnie) (purplebookishfrog) | 393 comments Mod
Oooh Christine that’s a gooooood choice.

You know, I stumbled across it as an audiobook on YouTube and I think I listened to about 2 chapters and then decided that I must get the kindle book and add it to my TBR. Can’t wait to read it!

Thank you x
