Jackie (thenightowl) | 2231 comments Historical Fun Fact:
"In addition to the United States, Valentine's Day is celebrated in Canada, Mexico, the United Kingdom, France and Australia. In Great Britain, Valentine's Day began to be popularly celebrated around the 17th century. By the middle of the 18th, it was common for friends and lovers of all social classes to exchange small tokens of affection or handwritten notes, and by 1900 printed cards began to replace written letters due to improvements in printing technology." Source

Let's celebrate our love of reading and get to know each other by partnering up this month.

Rules for Participation
*If you're interested please sign up in this thread
*Members will then be paired up randomly by me
*You and your buddy will then discuss through GR's personal message system (PM) or via email what historical fiction book you both want to read and discuss during the month of February.
*A thread will be open where you can post the name of your partner, your book choice and summary of your thoughts on the book.
*When making your book choice please consider the availability of the book
*If for any reason there is a member you do not want to be paired up with please let me know via PM. Do not post it in this thread.
*Authors- You are not allowed to recommend your own book. You will receive a warning for spamming if I hear any complaints. :)

The sign up thread will be open until January 6th. You'll get your assigned buddy by January 7th. It is then up to the both of you to discuss via GR's personal message system or email what historical fiction book each of you want to read.

Jackie (thenightowl) | 2231 comments Okay, sign ups are closed. I'm at work right now and can't message everyone so I'm posting the pairings here in the meantime. I'll message everyone later tonight and create another thread for the February discussion. Rules are in the first posting. No theme. The book just needs to be historical fiction. Have fun!
