Review: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...

For this two month challenge, as well as our September one, we will be picking one overall winner (again!). At the end of our Vacation Quarterly Challenge there will be one winner that wins a prize of getting to choose a book from bookdepository.com. They can pick any book up to $10. For this to happen, we will be combining the points from the two month challenge (July-August), our September challenge, and our Vacation Quarterly together to pick that winner.

For BRs so far, The Girls in the Garden with you hopefully. Being on the same group witll make settign that easy. :)
And Illuminae with Felicia.
Beyond that we'll see if I can get a few more BRs set up. I am also trying to get as many of these to lineup to my Coyer Summer reading challenge. But not sure how much that will happen.

message 47: by Rachel (new)

Rachel Rapp | 25 comments What’s a BR?


message 48: by Jackie (new)

Jackie (jackiegirl02) | 4614 comments A BR is a buddy Reid. This is where you choose a book to read with someone, post it on the buddy thread requests or tell one of us, the moderators, and we will make a thread for you to read that book and discuss your thoughts on.


message 49: by Jamie (new)

Jamie ^ Also a fun way to get to know your fellow members and earn your team extra points for the challenge. :)
