Every year I try to complete the reading challenge.


I like it because it gets me to read things I might not read regularly. So, I decided to challenge all of you. I am planning to do a series of these if everyone likes them.

For this first one, pick a book recommended by a librarian. After you have read it send your partner a note card with the title and author. Explain a little about the book, and whether you liked it.

Because it might take a little time to find a book, and read it I'm allowing extra time for sign up and sending. Because this is a group swap, anyone can join, but I will watch and remove anyone with current unexplained low ratings.

PS: This is my first attempt at hosting, so let me know if you have any questions or comments.

I would have joined the swap, but unfortunately I don't use libraries. Not since the academy... I don't know where to find one in my area. So next time probably.

KSENiA, no online libraries? That's where most of my books come from.

They don't have librarians... Can I use GoodReads recommendation?

Great choice for a swap! I love having reading challenges to reach each year. I didn't have one this year... and didn't end up reaching my goal of 125 books!

I'm a Library Assistant... so if anyone can't access a library, am I allowed to recommend a book? Hahaha!!

Great idea @mellyrose89 ! I think I will use your assistance if it's ok with @ImnotDorothy

ImnotDorothy 12/19/2016 #

@KSENiA go ahead. I will count it as long as it is suggested by someone neutral.

Okay thanks @ImnotDorothy :) I can always ask a librarian at the library near me if you don't want me to choose one?

I know a librarian too, just in case
