Jenne  (JennetheInstigator) | 7444 comments description



Duration: 12/1/12-12/31/12



Instructions and Info

Rules:
USE THIS THREAD TO DISCUSS AND DETERMINE WHO YOUR BUDDY WILL BE AND WHAT YOU WILL READ AND THEN YOU WILL USE THE FINAL SIGN UP THREAD (LINK AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS POST) TO LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU HAVE DECIDED. BASICALLY IT WILL BE THE SAME AS BEFORE....EXCEPT THAT YOU WILL POST YOUR BUDDY, YOURSELF, AND YOUR BOOK(S) If you are without a partner by the end of sign up I will match the remaining people up, so no worries...EVERYONE will have a buddy:-)

1.If you want to participate post your name and maybe let people know what genre(s) you are interested in reading.

2.If you already know who you’d like to read with, go to the Final Sign UP thread and post your information for me!

3.Whoever doesn’t have a partner, we will place with another person and you guys can pick a book together! If we have an odd number we can have groups of three, more people to discuss with!

4.I will create Buddy Discussion Threads for each Buddy group and you will be able to start reading and discussing on October 1st!

5.The challenge will span a month.

6.For each group we can set up a thread so the two of you can discuss without having to sift through a bunch of other conversation. But please leave us updates as to how far along you guys are and how you’re liking the book!

7.You CAN sign up for more than one Buddy Read...in fact it's encouraged! And I'm giving a full month just for reading this time around so it will give you more time for more books!!!

ANY QUESTIONS JUST ASK!

Once you've found a book & a buddy go to the Final Sign Up and post a link to your book & who you'll be reading it with.

Adele Symonds (adelesymonds) I posted in the discussion thread for a November buddy read but didn't get a buddy so probably won't bother this time.

Jenne  (JennetheInstigator) | 7444 comments Adele, don't give up on it! These last two months we've been really late getting the threads up & it didn't leave much time for people to get their books together. I promise us mods will do better in January :)

I keep looking at that book each time I go to Barnes and Noble. I may 'peek' at your buddy read to see how it is and see if I want to buy it.....

I'm fixing to read a YA dystopian it's second in the series and I wouldn't mind waiting for you to read the first. It's part of the Chemical Garden Trilogy the first one is Wither (The Chemical Garden, #1) by Lauren DeStefano and the second one is Fever (The Chemical Garden, #2) by Lauren DeStefano if it's not your cup of tea no big deal :)
