Buddy Read

November Buddy Read Discussion
Duration: 01 November 2016 - 30 November 2016



Instructions & Info:

Rules:


Use this thread to find your buddy and determine your book! You can always start by posting books, authors or genres you are interested in. When you decide who your buddy will be and what book(s) you're going to read head on over to the FINAL SIGN UP thread (see link at bottom) and tell me your book and buddy there (there will be instructions to follow).


1. If you want to participate post your name and let people know what genre(s) you are interested in reading and/or any books that you're interested in reading.

2. If you already know who you’d like to read with, go to the Final Sign Up thread and post your information for me!

3. Groups of 3 or more are also fine, the more the merrier.

4. I will create Buddy Discussion Threads for each Buddy group and you will be able to start reading and discussing.

5. There are no rules on what, how much or how often to discuss or how best to pace your reading - whatever works best for each individual group.

5.The challenge usually spans a month. If you'd like to start a longer buddy read, you can mention the time frame you have in mind when posting to look for a buddy. If you need more time to finish your book at the end of the month, just drop me a line in the next month's sign ups to keep your thread open.

6.You CAN sign up for more than one Buddy Read...in fact it's encouraged!

ANY QUESTIONS JUST ASK!

Once you have a buddy, go to the November Sign Up Thread and post your book and your buddy.

I didn't get as far as I would have liked on the Montgomery Ink series yesterday, Ezi...I got through the two prequel novellas. Still want to do it as a buddy read or shall I try to catch up to you another time?

I didn't read the prequels nor do I have any of the novellas. I have this series on audio so I listened to book 1. I have 2,3. We can wait until later in the month when you get to book 2.

I've got everything through book 2. I'll add books 1, 1.5, 2, and 3 to my November TBR and will plan to read 1 and 1.5 early on in the month, as well as pick up book 3 sometime.

Do you want to request a thread, or shall I add it to my sign up post already in progress?

Not a problem, I'll get them set up in my sign up post!

Have you not read Unwanted (Elemental Assassin, #14.5) by Jennifer Estep yet? I'll make the thread request for both books and discuss Unwanted with you before we get into Unraveled (Elemental Assassin, #15) by Jennifer Estep , as I've already read Unwanted.

LOL! We don't have to buddy read it together if you don't want to, since you've already read it. We can just do discussions by PM on the respective ones we need to read, if you'd like. Totally up to you!
