Buddy Read

June Buddy Read Discussion
Duration: 01 June 2017 - 30 June 2017



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 June Sign Up Thread and post your book and your buddy.


message 2: by Claire (new)

Claire  | 139 comments I would love to do a buddy read, but no idea how to start with it. I prefer classics, litarary fiction, fantasy, thrillers, but could agree on everything. One thing could be difficult, some books we cannot buy in my country (if they are too recent)


message 3: by [deleted user] (new)

My name is Jaylee and I am looking to read the following:
And Then There Were None
What is Not Yours is Not Yours
1984
Night
Half Bad


message 4: by Eunice (new)

Eunice | 340 comments Hi Jaylee. I can do Half Bad and And Then There Were None. I might be able to do 1984, but I'm not sure about that book yet.


message 5: by [deleted user] (new)

That's fine! Should I sign us up?


message 6: by Eunice (new)

Eunice | 340 comments Sure!

Oh and which one should we read? Half Bad or And Then There Were None? I think you can only choose one book? Sorry, this is my first time participating in this.


message 8: by Eunice (new)

Eunice | 340 comments We can do both. We can buddy read as much books as we are able to, with as many people as we want to.


message 9: by [deleted user] (new)

Eunice wrote: "Sure!"

Which book should I sign us up for? Half Bad or And Then There Were None? Whatever you prefer.

Hi Claire! I'd be happy to buddy read with you. I don't know what books you can get, so I've listed links to two shelves of books I want to read in June. If you see something you like, create a new post with the title.

edited: shelves served their purpose

It says in the rules above, 3 or more people are allowed to read a book and still count it as a buddy read but if you just want it to be the 2 of you, I don't mind sitting out. Thanks!

I can read both or just one, whichever you prefer. City of Bones will be a reread for me, but I only ever read up to book three and I want to continue with the series.

Does The Traitor's Club feature Ford in the title? Book #1, specifically? if so, I'd be happy to read it with you as it's available on Kindle Unlimited.
