MM Q3 Gang Bang Rules


How it works:

Step 1. - Create two new shelves on your bookshelf. One shelf that contains the books you want us to select from and one shelf to move the books to once they have been chosen for you.

Step 2.. Post in this thread that you want to participate and which shelf you want your books selected from. You will have until Wednesday 6/15 to sign up.

Step 3.. Once everyone is signed up, each participant will select at least one book for everyone else who signed up. You must pick books from the shelf the participant specified they want their books chosen from

Step 4. Send each participant a private message with the name of the book(s) you have chosen for them. Do not post your selections here.

Step 5.. Create a challengers list in this thread (see this thread as an example). Please include the shelf you want your books selected from.

Step 6.. As you read each book on the list, indicate the book has been read by either striking through it, putting the date read, # of stars awarded, or a combination of all three, next to the title.

Rules:

1. You may read as many or as few books as you want but try to at least read 30 over the course of the 3 month challenge.
2. Each book should be in the M/M genre but I'll allow you to slide now and then.
3. Please include a "read" indicator at the top of your post, 0/10 Read.
4. When you update, please edit your original post and do not create a new post each time.
5. You will have July 1st to September 30th to read each of the books. You may not start any of your books until July 1st.
6. If you profile is private, you will need to "friend" each one of the participants so they can see your bookshelves.
7. Update your list in the Participants thread and your "Gang Bang" shelf (see Tips below) as soon as you receive a recommendation to help avoid getting duplicates selected for you.
8. PLEASE do not begin selecting books for the participants until June 16th.

Tips:

✓ Create a special shelf (not your To-Read shelf) that contains just the books you'd like the participants to select from. Make sure this shelf is up to date and contains enough books for all the participants to chose from.

✓ Create a "Gang Bang" shelf and shelve each of the books picked for you on this shelf. That will let everyone know not to select that book again since it has already been picked.

✓ If you pick a book that is part of a series, make sure they have already either read the previous books or those books have already been chosen for them.

✓ "Friend" everyone before the challenge begins to make sending them a message faster and easier.

✓ Select 2 or 3 books for each participant in case someone else has already recommended your first pick.

✓ When you recommend a book, include a link to it in the message you send so it's easier for the recipient to add the book to their challenge shelf.

✓ You may use the same books for multiple challenges.
