Pick for Me Challenge!!!

Lurkers...first time newbies...anyone, feel free to join! Especially right now when we're all feeling the strain of too much time stuck at home under the COVID-19 quarantine.

This challenge has endured the test of time in our group because it is definitely the most fun! Feel free to participate each month, or when your schedule allows. We're not picky, we love seeing you when you can!

The How-to
1. Create a new shelf, or update an existing shelf on your Goodreads profile, that includes approximately 20 books that you would like to have someone else use to pick a book for you to read. Label it "Pick For Me." Only books from this designated shelf will be selected for this challenge, (no matter how badly some of us want to pick something else...hint hint, pick-happy moppets...*giggle*)!

2. Post in this thread that you want to participate this month. If you don't post here, I won't necessarily remember that you want in.

3. Provide the link to your Pick For Me shelf, (this will make it a bit easier for all parties involved... unless you all really *want* to read Jezebel. *a new month, a new pick from me!*) Check the links listed below to make sure the one I have listed for you is current...if so, just give me a thumbs up! If not...please update me :) If you're having difficulty finding the link to your shelf, please let me know.

4. On October 1st, *cough,cough* someone...the hand of fate, maybe, *cough, cough* will use the randomizer to pair up everyone. (Or worst case scenario, I really will just do the old making of a list on a piece of paper and draw lines between everyone, and you *know* what that means, *shifty eyes* see above for my pick for the month, LOL!)

5. Friend your partner who is picking for you or set your profile to public or your partner will not be able to access your shelf.

6. Post your selection for your partner in this thread.

7. Come back after finishing the book selected for you by your partner (even if it's after the month has ended) and let everybody know what you think about it, or at least that you've finished...or DNF'd it (another book off your list is always a win in our book!)

**The sign up period will remain open until pairs are posted on the 1st of the month and you'll have until 4th to select a book for your partner or one of these other scavengers will swoop in and do it for you.**

Sample shelf: Grey's Pick For Me

Robin Hill (robinhill) | 1528 comments I'm in, but I fear there is a high probability of DNF. I think many of these books have been on my TBR forever for a reason and I'm just not clicking with them anymore. Sorry to whoever gets me! 😬🙃

Júlia (Sol and Us) (solandus) | 40 comments Hello Jen! Your profile appears empty for me. It's like you don't even have any data on Goodreads. I don't know if that's because I need to be your friend or what, but I just sent you a friend request.

Melinda, I can't believe I've only read 4 of the 43 books on you PFM shelf! That's crazy. I could pick one I haven't read, but I think at some point, everyone needs to read the beautiful writing of Where the Crawdads Sing. It's a superb audiobook, as well.

Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens


message 27: by Júlia (new)

Júlia (Sol and Us) (solandus) | 40 comments Jen, my pick for you is Aly Martinez's The Fall Up. I like her books and I'll probably read it this year. I hope you like it. Good reading. ^^

Michele | 2131 comments Is anyone else having notification issues with GR or is it just me?

Anyway... Judy, how is it I haven’t read any of the books on your list?! I picked Rock Star, Interrupted (Tragic Duet #1) by S.M. Shade because it’s on my list too and I’m curious to hear your thoughts! I hope you enjoy!,

T. Rosado (trosado) | 338 comments Notifications have been down for a little over 24 hours. I noticed their mobile app has been updated. Maybe in that update, it screwed up the notifications?

No notifications for me either. Weird!

Yay! I adore K.A. Tucker & this one has been on my list for awhile. I promise to read my pick this time! Haha!

And Júlia, I haven’t read any books on your list, but this one is also on mine One More Step by Lillian Schneider I can’t wait to hear what you think!

Sorry for the delay, Michele, I didn’t get the notification! Glad Layne told me the list was up. This was so easy! One of my favorite books, I’ve read it three times. I hope you enjoy Sugar & Gold (Dreamcatcher, #2) by Emma Scott as much as I do!

Awesome! Thanks Marissa!


message 47: by Nay (new)

Nay (4ukcats) | 3499 comments Hey, everyone. I’m in a private librarian group and one of them posted that Goodreads has temporarily turned off notifications due to a problem they’ve been having with porny spam. If I find out anything else, I’ll let you know.


message 48: by Júlia (new)

Júlia (Sol and Us) (solandus) | 40 comments Yay, thank you, Layne! I'm excited to read One More Step. I think giving a group of authors the same beginning sentence is brilliant. I'll let you know when I'm finished. ^^


message 49: by Michele (new)

Michele | 2131 comments Thanks Nay!

Nay (4ukcats) | 3499 comments If anyone even sees this, if you haven't seen the person who's picking for you on here, I suggest you message them to let them know about the notifications and to check in.
