message 1: by Kara, TBR Twins (new)

Kara (karaayako) | 3957 comments It's been awesome to see so many new faces to TBR twins lately! Hope you're all enjoying it.

Sign up here, and I'll pair you with someone with someone who answered the questions in a compatible way. You'll choose a book to read together for March. This is all in an effort to decrease that TBR (to-be-read) list.

When you sign up, please answer the following questions:
1. Do you generally prefer to read romance or science fiction?
2. In the last six months, have you read and enjoyed a nonfiction book?
3. What three genres are you interested in reading next month? (I promise that the pairings are better if you're specific here. "Anything" or "Fiction" are a little too broad.)
4. Have you participated before?

You will (to the best of my ability) be paired with someone who answers the three questions in a compatible way.

This thread will close on March 15th, and you will be notified of your TBR twin around the 22nd.

Note: please make sure you can receive messages in order to participate. It also helps (but is not required) for your profile to not be set to private.

Happy reading!

Yes, a book about feminism, but I had to read it for school, since I rarely search out nonfiction myself. But i want to start reading more nonfiction.
