Alicia, yes, the pairs are already announced but you have Mat Copy Cat which is a bit different from buddy read.
Here are the rules for that

If you want to participate, the sign up thread is here

Bookish Devil (bookishdevil) | 38 comments @ Arprit :
First of all, Thanks for inviting me to this group. :)

Well...How should I 'sign up' for the buddy read thingy ?
Correct me if i'm wrong..... So Basically Buddy read is about paring up two persons and they both get to decide among themselves about the book to be read. Right ?
After completion of the book, they could discuss about the book(Highs and lows.. etc) if they want to....right?

Hmm... I'm in !! :D

Pair me up with a person who is in need of a reading partner :)
Note: I'm in the middle of study holidays, so I have ample to read books :P So, it would just take a day or two to finish a book for me :)


Thanks again for inviting me Arprit.
Appreciate your kind gesture :)


P.S Ignore the typos.

First of all, welcome Sid : )

You are right about Buddy-Read. That's what it is.
But you can't sign-up for April BR, 'cause it's over. Pairs are announced and they are halfway through it.

This group organizes Copy-cat-challenge and Buddy-read-challenge every month, in alternative order. So if you want to participate in May-Copy-Cat-Challenge, then see the message no. 32 in this thread.

However, if you are looking for a long term partner for buddy read, you can comment here: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...
If you want a partner for a particular book, comment here: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...

BTW, Gehna and I are going to BR A Farewell to Arms from 20th of April, and we are inviting you to join us. We'd glad if you join:)

Have fun here.


message 38: by Bookish (new)

Bookish Devil (bookishdevil) | 38 comments It's over already ?
Alright. No problem.

Farewell to arms- Hemingway ? Cool ! I'm game :)
But, tbh, I'm not a serious book-worm like you guys.
My interpretational skills might be poor and i'm actually scared to join you guys. I wonder how you guys would react when you finally get to know that i'm a pea brain :/

I'm saying yes despite the fact that i'm nervous as hell :(

Thanks for everything bro :)

Jarvis  | 2591 comments Mod
@Arpit, Whoa, wait. I don't see myself finishing Crying Lot in 4 days O.O
Can't start Farewell on 20th. We'll have to post pone it by a day or two :P

@Siddharth, first of all, welcome to the group! :-)
Next Buddy Read will be in June. However you can sign up for May Copy Cat as Arpit said.
And you will do great, btw. Buddy Reading makes books easy, in most cases :P
Have you read any books by Hemingway before?


message 40: by [deleted user] (new)

Don't act stupid, buddy.
"We're all mad here" as your profile says.
We are as unprofessional as you are, so don't worry, Man. Nobody is gonna judge you.

@Gehna @Sid What about 25th of April?

Okay, so 25th it is.

Should I make a thread so we can get more people involved?
