Rossy (naughtybookjunkie) | 2192 comments What's a Pick-It-For-Me Challenge?
It's a group recommend a book thing - works just like a Secret Santa or Xmas Exchange, except that the gift is replaced by a book recommendation. Just like in Secret Santa, the givee-giver pairings are randomly assigned. So whomever you get, you recommend a book for them. Preferably it should be something new and unfamiliar to your givee, NOT a book from their to-read list - the point is to introduce new books and new authors. In return, you'll have a book recommended to you (sometimes you might get a few options to choose from). After you're done reading your Pick-It-For-Me book, a short post with some feedback - a mini-review of sorts would be appreciated.

For this challenge, you need either HAVE YOUR PROFILE SET TO PUBLIC (preferable) or make the person who'd be doing the recommending to you your friend. On top of that, I strongly advise keeping your bookshelves updated, otherwise you might end up with a recommendation for something that you have already read.


Signing up period will remain open until the 29th. You'll have time until ~the 2nd to make your recommendations. Everything will be done in this thread so check it often. Also, please be sure you really want to participate. Once I pair up people, it makes it difficult to re-pair when someone decides not to participate.

message 15: by Pickles (new)

Pickles (angstypickles) | 387 comments I'm in! And this reminds me that I should probably get to reading the book that was chosen for me this month. LOL.


Jim son of Jim (formerly PhotoJim) (jim_formerly_photojim) | 5294 comments I'm in if I can have a condition. I really enjoy this challenge, but I'll be in Los Angeles2 for the first week of April. I don't know how much, if any, access I'll have to the internet. It may be fine, but I may not be able to make a recommendation until the 6th. I'm just letting you know that if you'll accept me into the challenge, the person I'm paired with runs the risk of not having a recommendation for a few days.

Diane ~Firefly~ | 1448 comments I'm in. I need paperback for my recommendation though. Thanks! (and I'm ok with something from my TBR pile).

message 19: by Leah (new)

I don't think that's a problem,Jim. As you know, the waiting is bad when you don't know if the person who is supposed to pick for you will be able to. Knowing when reassures the person that you'll be able to do it, just in a few days later.

Welcome back, ladies!

I'm making notes of your preferences in terms of TBR and format, so don't worry i'll make sure to note it with the pairing list.


message 25: by Emily (new)

Emily Oh, okay. *LoL* I'm in the process of acquiring/reading this month's selection, but glutton for punishment I am, I'm ready and willing to sign up for next month. hehe Anything from my TBR list is welcomed as is anything COMPLETELY different. I'm fairly easy to please. ;^D

Thanks Kim, i'll make a note of it!

See Jim, nothing to worry about. We have you covered!


Jim son of Jim (formerly PhotoJim) (jim_formerly_photojim) | 5294 comments I wasn't worrying, Rossy. In all probability, I'll have my picks posted by the 1st. But I'm just noting the outside chance. As an alternative, I don't leave until late afternoon on the 31st. If you'd let me know a day early with whom I'll be paired, I'll post ahead of time.
