Kara (karaayako) | 3977 comments Sign up here, and you and your twin will choose a book to read together in July. This is all in an effort to decrease that TBR (to-be-read) list.

When you sign up, please answer the following questions:
1. Would you prefer to read a YA or adult book in July?
2. Would you rather read a historical or contemporary 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 first three questions in a compatible way.

This thread will close on June 20th, and you will be notified of your TBR twin around the 25th.

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!
