Savanes | 39 comments Hey guys, it's time to sign up for book buddies for the month of OCTOBER.

For those who are new to Coffee & Books, the concept is simple. You have until september 25 to sign up. After that date, you will be randomly paired with another member. Together you can choose to read the same book of have your buddy choose a book for you from your tbr list.

And since it's October, the scariest month of the year maybe we can aim our reading to something a bit spooky or not (totally your choice & your buddy's).

Pairings will be announced in this thread.

I will open another thread at the beginning of October so that you can all share your thoughts about the books you selected and read.

You are randomly paired so normally you don't get the same buddy but it can happen I guess. Especially since I don't really keep track of previous pairing.

On another note, I'm leaving tomorrow morning for short break. I didn't take one this summer so it's well, well, WELL deserved. I'll be in Spain <3 and I'm not sure I'll have an internet connection everywhere I'll go. I'll do my best to answer your questions as fast as possible.

In the mean time, have fun (I know I will :D)

Deb (debgiggs) | 26 comments I know you said after Sept. 25th, we will be randomly paired with our buddies. I guess I'm just excited to find out, so when will we find out exactly - the 26th? or the 30th? or somewhere in between? LOL Thanks


message 28: by Savanes (new)

Savanes | 39 comments I'll try to post it on the 26. It might still be the 25 depending where you are on the planet!
