1. I create a list of all participants
2. I then offer the person a book via PM for example The Book Thief, they can either take this book or twist, which means I'll send them something entirely random off of my shelf.
3. I'll post this book to them and on receipt of this they will offer the next person via PM the book they have just received, or twist.

IF they pick the book the person received the person has to read it and then post it on.

IF it is a twist then they post out a random book from their availables.

This continues until it gets back to me, which means all the members may read the same book or a random book on each pass.

So I can keep track of where things are please post here with a simple message of Stick or Twist when you decide what you are going to do.


Any Questions, if I haven't made this clear enough PM me or post below and I'll try to respond

PARTICIPANT ORDER (if I've missed you PM me) :


We're travelling, if a person goes for twist, thank you for including the 'rest' of the then current list in your release-entry (of the new book)

Received today in Dublin, will pm sheepette now and see if they wish to stick or twist. Thanks for sending the book, it looks like a fun light read - perfect for summer.

A fun romp through a mafia situation in Florida. The characters were stereotypical but the story didn't call for much more. I enjoyed the Godfather and the girlfriend the most.

The author having them talking in dialect was annoying at times.

I finished this book about a week ago, but have only just got round to writing a review.

I recieved this as part of the stick or twist game. This would not have been something I would usually picked to read but thought it maybe knowing what i would get would be better than a twist and ending up with something else i would not have read.

I surprised myself by really enjoying it. I love the thought of a mafia boss gardening in his spare time like a "normal person" or maybe he's a gadener who happens to be a mafia boss.

Like the previousus reader i too liked the girlfriend. I also liked Bert.

As this book was not mine to start with and as there is quite a few swear words in it, I would not be happy to wild release it, so I might see if i can start a bookring or a ROAK.

Thank you again for giving me chance to partake in this game and if another one was ever to be started I would love to join.
