Welcome && Info;


With the blessing of the lovely amyofaquitaine of pick_for_me, we are bringing an all new bright and shiny Livejournal bookclub!

If you're anything like us, you'll no doubt have a mountain of books that you just never get around to reading. Well, that's where thestoryinside comes in - have someone choose your book for you!

The process is simple: join the community, and each month sign up to be partnered with a buddy, who will then choose a book from your 'to read' list. At the end of each month there will be a community post to discuss your thoughts on the book(s) you read!

However, we're putting a twist on the traditional 'pick for me' routine and each month we'll vote on what genre of book we'll be reading; now, of course this is open to personal interpretation, for example, if the genre is horror and you're not a big fan, you could go for a Goosebumps book, or even Twilight. There will be an opportunity in each voting post to ask any questions you might have.

Of course, with every community, we have to have some rules:
• You must join the community to take part, but you do not need to take part every month, so please don't feel pressured. Membership does not mean you are signed up for each month's activities, so please watch out for sign-up posts.
• You must have a 'to read' list that is public (ie. Goodreads, a Tumblr post, a LJ post, etc.) as your buddy needs to be able to pick from your list.
• Please ensure you have a few books on your list. If there are any books you can't read for whatever reasons, you'll have the opportunity in the sign up post to let us know.
• If you sign up but then realise you can't take part, please let a mod know ASAP so we can remove you from the sign-ups.
• This community is members only, but membership is open to all, so please join the community :)

If you have any questions or suggestions, please feel free to comment or send a PM!
