(I took most of this description from another group)

Like the name implies, those who participate in this challenge will have a book selected for them by another participant. Participants will be randomly paired up into picker/pickee pairs. The pickee will post a list of 5 books they want to read (make sure you haven't already read them!!!) and the picker will pick one for them.

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.

***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

So sign up in this thread with your 5 books listed and I will make a list of those participating and their books, and once we have enough people, I'll post the list of picker/pickee pairs. (Everyone will be both a picker and a pickee with someone) The picker of the pair will then choose the book for the pickee and post the book, saying who is to read it (Example: if i'm picking for Natalie, I will write "Natalie is reading..." and then post the book I've chosen for her). Then I will make another list saying who is reading what. Once you have finished reading your book, come back here and tell us what you thought (but no spoilers please) :D

I'm so sorry about that, my sister is the one picking for you and she doesn't ever go on the computer. I've been reminding her though so you should get picked for soon. And you're not alone, I haven't been picked for either :P
