Elizabeth (cloaknquill) | 335 comments Pick It for Me Challenge - July 2020
Sign up ends June 23th. Partners will be picked that same day.
Re-picks will be done on the June 30th.


Are you currently in a reading slump? Need help choosing your next book?
This challenge will partner you randomly with another participant who will choose a book for you to read that month. Sign up below with your desired shelf to be picked from.


Guidelines:
- Choose one book from your partners desired shelf.
- All books are accepted for this challenge.
- If you would like your partner to choose more than one book, please note it in your sign up post.
- Complete the book before month's end.
- After you complete your book, come back to let your partner know your thoughts on it. (Does not need to be a long description, if you like.)

Sarah B | 90 comments Hi April! It seems we both like to read the same kind of books! We both read classics, fantasy and other things as well.

So my first choice for a book for you to read is Homeland by R.A. Salvatore. I had named two of my cats after his characters: Drizzt and Cattie-Brie. 🐈

If for some reason you can't get that one (because things are a bit strange these days) then my section choice would be Hyperion. Because I'm curious what it is about. And I have a copy of it that I need to read soon..I actually just got my copy of it. 😊 Only had it a few days.

Hopefully you like the book(s) I have picked.

You can pick any book you want for me because I have them on my bookshelf..no worries there. 😁

April | 92 comments Hello Sarah!

Yes, it does seem like we be both enjoy reading similar types of books. I saw some interesting books in your shelf (which I have now added to my own ever expanding TBR pile 😁). It made choosing just one book difficult.

For you, I chose Up The Line by Robert Silverberg.

Yay, Homeland! I look forward to reading it. I've owned the book for years but I have lost it - an embarrassing amount of times - within the mountains of books I own 😅. But don't worry, I found its hiding spot a few weeks ago so I am good to go 😊

I hope you enjoy the book I picked out for you.

Morgan | 74 comments Hi Jo,

For you I picked Anne of Green Gables. It was one of my favorites when I was a kid. I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts.
