What's a TBR Pick-It-For-Me Challenge?

Like the name implies, those who participate in this monthly challenge will have a book selected for them by another participant. Participants will be randomly paired up into picker/pickee pairs. The picker will choose a book for the pickee from their to read list (TBR).

Once you have picked the book come back to this thread and post what you have picked for your partner. Also send a message to the person with the name of the book you have selected for them. Then when you're done with your book, come back to this thread and post your opinion so we know you have completed the challenge.

For this challenge, you need to either HAVE YOUR PROFILE SET TO PUBLIC (preferable) or make the person you're paired with your friend. I strongly advise keeping your bookshelves updated, otherwise you might end up with a recommendation for something that you've already read.

Sign up period will remain open until June 30 and you'll have until July 5th to select a book for your partner.

***Please note***Everything will be done in this thread so check it often. Also, please be sure you really, really want to participate. Once I pair up people, it makes it difficult to re-pair when someone decides not to participate


I'm trying something new this month to see if it's a little bit easier doing the pairs.

Instead of having someone pick for you and you pick for another person, I will just pair everyone up so you pick for someone and that same person picks for you. Sound okay? Make sense?


Pairs:
Athena-Nadine - Julissa
Leigh - Tawna
Laura - Elise
Rebecka - Louise-Lesley (Elle)
Deniece - Nuzaifa
Marian - Pat
NayNay - Alyssia
Angela - Fearlesprincess
Sheri - Sue
Cindy - Missy
Gayatri - Renee
Tiffany - Buddy
Yasmani - Deborah
Mallory Anne-Marie - Elizabeth
Candy - Minnie
Mollie - Janis
Kathryn - Tammy
Stacy - Antoinette
Suzanne - Leigh
Pat - Sannie
Kari - Lisa
Mrs. Northman Not that Sookie girl :) - Leigh


Here are the people who said they would pick more than one book...if you guys want to get together and pick another one or two that would be great :)
Tiffany
Athena-Nadine
Alyssia
Leigh
Pat
