message 1: by Kara (new)

Kara (karaayako) | 3980 comments Sign up here, and you and your twin will choose a book to read together in August. 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 science fiction or romance (or both or neither)?
2. Do nonfiction books make up over 5% of the books you read in the last year?
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 July 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!
