Buddy Read

August Buddy Read Discussion
Duration: 01 August 2014 - 31 August 2014



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 you buddy and your book you will 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) If you are without a partner by the end of sign up I will try to match the remaining people up, so no worries...EVERYONE will have a buddy:-)


1.If you want to participate post your name and maybe 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.Whoever doesn’t have a partner, we will try to place with another person and you guys can pick a book together! If we have an odd number we can have groups of three, more people to discuss with!

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

5.The challenge will span a month.

6.For each group we can set up a thread so the two of you can discuss without having to sift through a bunch of other conversation.

7.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 August Sign Up Thread and post your book and your buddy.

Jim Townsend | 69 comments Good afternoon from New Jersey, I am currently reading Snow Crash from my science fiction and fantasy bookshelf, am also interested in other genres such as mystery, history, travel, and music. I read a lot of nonfiction and am thinking of beginning a stack of books that I bought in June, 2014 at my local library's spring book sale. These include:

*Josephus* by Norman Bentwich; Bait and Switch The (Futile) Pursuit of the American Dream by Barbara Ehrenreich ; 100 Things You're Not Supposed to Know by Russ Kick ; Pillars of Hercules by Paul Theroux ; and Shakedown Exposing the Real Jesse Jackson by Kenneth R. Timmerman

Yeah, had some issues with book #1 as well. Hero was a real asshat for most of the book. Loved the epilogue though so I have high hopes for the next one.

If I said it depends on a couple team challenges would that be too much up in the air? I'd love to work it into one of them so maybe the week of Friday the 8th-14th or a week later (the 15th-21st).
