Alissa Patrick (apatrick12211) Need help knocking down that sometimes OVERWHELMING To Be Read Shelf of yours???? Pair up with a fellow member and read a book together!

If you are interested, sign up for Book Buddies for the month of June. You will be randomly paired with another member and together you will chat through PM (personal message) to choose a book to read and discuss during the month. After both of you are finished, please post a summary of the book the two of you chose to read and what you both thought of the book.

If you would like to participate, please sign up by SATURDAY MAY 23. Pairings will be announced in this thread on SUNDAY MAY 24 .

~ Make sure your profile is set to Public, or at least allow non-friends to Private Message you.
~ Consider adding more books to your "To-Read" shelf so it's easier for your partner to choose.
~ Only sign up if you are committed to participating.
~ Remember to check back on between the 24th and 31st to see who you've been paired with.
~ Have fun!

Rachel (hrhrach) | 82 comments Im in. April didn't go well. May I didn't sign up for. Let's try for June and if you get me please feel free to contact me or reply to me with suggestions of your own as im fairly flexible and please barring any emergencies (I know life happens) please do read the book and at least discus a bit. I buy my buddy read book as soon as we choose so especially if it's up there in price and just bc I enjoy the buddy read, please ppl if I may say try to follow thru. I've had some great buddies n it can be a lot of fun. Not every book has tons to pick apart n analyze but just discussing any thoughts n whether it was a worthy read in our opinions can be nice. And those who are very busy, or have a number of reading commitments just say if you'd like to choose a book that's on the shorter side say 250-300 pages vs 599 pages :) it's all easy when still in the choosing process. If you really want to read 2 different ones and discuss even if that's not what some of us hope for, it's a valid listed option so if that's your preference speak up.
I think my last buddy might've preferee that as she did ask me if we read the same or different but I thought we agreed same one was more fun. Looking back I wonder if I sounded flexible enough. :(
Happy reading everyone!
