Reading a book is fun, but reading a book with someone makes it SO much more fun! So that is why we started a Buddy Reads thread :D

Here is the Summer Buddy Read discussion page (June-August). Leave a post with the genres you like to read or which books you have that you want to read soon, and then those who want to read the same book(s) or who enjoy the same genres can ask to buddy with you.

Here's an example of how to post:

Hi! I enjoy reading lots of different genres, but my favorite is historical fiction. I am planning on reading A Passion Most Pure by Julie Lessman next month, but I am willing to read another book as well.


Once you know who you are buddying with, please leave a comment HERE with the names of the people buddying up (you can buddy up with more than one person) and the book(s) you will be reading.

Note:
Threads from the previous month(s) will remain in this folder until people are through reading their book(s). Once it is obvious that a discussion thread is finished, it will be moved to the archives.

Dawn,


I have A Cast of Stones (The Staff and the Sword, #1) by Patrick W. Carr (print), Widow of Gettysburg (Heroines Behind the Lines Civil War #2) by Jocelyn Green (ebook) & In Golden Splendor (An Heirs of Ireland #2) by Michael K. Reynolds (ebook) to review too and would love to buddy on any or all of them...just let me know.


message 19: by Dawn (new)

Dawn (baseballblondie) | 1180 comments Megan let's buddy on all of them. I've got them in the same formats!

And it doesn't matter to me which one(s) to start.


message 20: by Megan, ☘I Lost My Shoe ☘ (new)

Megan (celtic_girl) | 6295 comments Mod
Since we're also doing Wings of Glass, if you want to do two at the same time, maybe we could do one of the ebooks? That way if I get tired of holding a book I can switch to my ereader. :D Otherwise, one at a time is fine with me too. However, if you'd rather start one of the other ones first, instead of Wings of Glass, that's alright by me. I really have no preference which we read first, so just let me know if one is calling to you more than the others. :)

Sounds good. Halves for both would be:

Wings of Glass: prologue-chapter 21 & chapters 22-42
Widow of Gettysburg: chapters 1-12 & 13-epilogue
