Sonja (sonjac) | 1127 comments 2020 September 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

Sonja (sonjac) | 1127 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!

Sonja (sonjac) | 1127 comments September PIFM Challenge: 80s Decade
Question: In your opinion, what was the BEST thing to come out of the 80’s?
I’m not sorting this month, I just thought the question would be a fun teaser for this month’s topic!
September is my birth month and this one is a BIG decade change for me. Let’s spend September reading around my formative decade – the unique and colorful 80s! It was a decade of bright color, socioeconomic changes and BIG changes in technology as well as bright colors, power shoulders and bad hair. Whether you experienced the decade first hand, vaguely remember it or have only ever seen photos on Wikipedia, here are some of the key things that came out of this totally rad decade.

The Rise of Nintendo
While the 70s saw a growth in video and arcade games, the arrival of home computers nearly destroyed the industry, until Japanese company Nintendo revived it with the Famicom console and the still wildly popular Mario character. By 1989, Nintendo Entertainment System would claim 90% of the American video game market.
Recommend a book that
♫ is set in an Asian country
♫ has a nerdy or geeky character or character who plays video games at some point in the book
♫ has a fantasy or paranormal tag

Space Exploration
Space exploration took some exciting and tragic turns in the 80s. The arrival of Halley’s Comet in 1986 was met by a series of Soviet, Japanese and European Space Agency probes. After a six-year hiatus, America resumed space flights with astronauts with the launch of the Columbia in 1981. Several more successful launches occurred and then the tragic explosion of the space shuttle Challenger which brought forth extensive efforts to improve management practices for NASA. The Soviet space program continued to do well during the 80s.
Recommend a book that
♫ features lovers separated for any period of time
♫ has stars and/or the night sky on the cover
♫ has a character who is interested in science

The Cold War 1947-1991
The Cold War hit its peak during the 80s with the Soviet-Afghan War, the Invasion of Granada and the Salvadoran Civil Wars and came to an end just after the decade rolled out.
Recommend a book that
♫ includes some kind of war (your interpretation)
♫ is set in a country other than your own
♫ is tagged historical

The Fall of the Berlin Wall 1989
“Mr Gorbachev, tear down this wall.” US President Reagan’s famous phrase. The fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 marked the beginning of German reunification.
Recommend a book that
♫ is set in Europe
♫ features a new beginning or a reformation (your interpretation!)
♫ has a gray cover or has a wall on the cover

Music Television, 1981
MTV launched on August 1, 1981 and catapulted music videos into a larger portion of the recording industry. Music from artists and groups ran the gambit of genres from Pop to Techno; Heavy Metal and Punk Rock. New devices such as the Sony Walkman, cassette tapes and, at the end of the decade, compact discs made private music portable – and public. The number of infamous artists and music groups that took off in the decade is way too long to list, but many are recognizable and/or have reappeared in the last several years.
Recommend a book that
♫ features music or some form of art (your interpretation)
♫ is part of a series
♫ has more than two people on the cover

Teen Flicks and the Brat Pack
The 80’s was most definitely the golden age of “teen flicks” and launched the term ‘Brat Pack’. Such films as Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Pretty in Pink, Sixteen Candles, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Valley Girl, Dirty Dancing, Flashdance, Footloose and The Breakfast Club launched many actors who are high-profile celebrities today.
Recommend a book that
♫ is set in a school
♫ features a girl or woman on the cover
♫ has an NA or YA tag

Decade in Sports
Lots of major events came out of the ‘80’s in sports. The USA ‘Miracle’ Hockey team beat out the Soviet Union’s Red Army in the 1980 Winter Olympics. Canadian hockey great Wayne Gretzky’s rise to fame coincided with the Edmonton Oiler’s first 4 Stanley Cup championships. A Jamaican bobsled team stunned the world during the 1988 Winter Olympics in Canada for its unexpected good performance. Italy won the 1982 FIFA World Cup in Spain and Argentina won the 1986 FIFA World cup in Mexico. English team Liverpool F.C. were the most successful football club of the era. The San Francisco 49ers ushered in the ‘Joe Montana Era’ in the NFL and the Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers dominated the NBA, a succession known as the Celtics-Lakers Rivalry.
Recommend a book that
♫ features a male only on the cover
♫ has a sports tag
♫ is set in any of the above named countries: Canada, England, Italy, Spain, Mexico, Argentina, Jamaica, Soviet Union/Russia or United States.

LOUD Fashion
The ‘80’s saw an extravagant style modification that appears to be making a comeback. Popular styles included teased hair, ripped jeans, neon clothing and lots of colors/designs. Hairstyles included the perm, the mullet, the Jheri curl, the hi-top fade and big hair. Shoulder pads, jean jackets, aviator sunglasses and acid-wash jeans were just some of the styles worn. Miniskirts made a dramatic comeback after a decade absence. The term “Preppy” also came about with Izod polo shirts. And the makeup trends… oh goodness the makeup… aggressive, shiny and COLORFUL.
Recommend a book that
♫ with a bright or colorful cover
♫ features a stylish character or cover (your interpretation)
♫ has a contemporary tag
