Sandi *~The Pirate Wench~* (thepiratewench) | 53 comments Ive never been in a group that has had a "newsletter" (and an interesting one at that),sent out to members.
Is this something new? Very nicely done..2-thumbs up looking forward to more :D

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 20797 comments Thanks, Christine & Megan!


message 15: by Tracey (new)

Tracey Smith | 415 comments Love that the buddy reads are listed here! Really want to participate in both buddy reads for Dragon Bound (Elder Races, #1) by Thea Harrison and Lord of the Vampires (Royal House of Shadows, #1) (Harlequin Nocturne, #119) by Gena Showalter just not sure if I can read two books at the same time. Never tried before :)


message 16: by Gaijinmama (new)

Gaijinmama | 6 comments Thanks, Lisa Kay, lovely to know what's going on in the group, and also lovely to get several awesome-sounding book recommendations from reading this!


message 17: by Susan (susayq ~), Moderator (new)

Susan (susayq ~) (susayq) | 6062 comments Tracey, I use to read fanfiction a lot and would read 7 or 8 stories all going on at the same time(that would update regularly), as well as 1 or 2 completed stories a week that I would read from beginning to end. Sometimes it was hard to keep the stories separate, especially since I was reading stories that were all Edward and Bella in them ROFLOL I haven't tried reading multiple "real" books at the same time though. I like reading something from start to finish without changing plots :)

Thanks, Carolyn! Glad you think we are.


message 24: by Tracey (new)

Tracey Smith | 415 comments Well Susan I think I may try it, but everyone will have to excuse me if I start answering questions about one book in the forum for another. LOL. I'm worried about getting plots crossed. We'll see


 Danielle The Book Huntress (Wants to Read More) (gatadelafuente) What a good idea, Lisa Kay!


message 26: by Lisa Kay, Moderator (new)

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 20797 comments Thanks, Lady Danielle! Glad you like it. Saw the suggestion in the Moderator's Support Group. The four of us (CaroB, Heather, ✿Michelle✿ & me) had fun doing it... and working on the next one for December! ☺


message 27: by ch&ra (new)

ch&ra | 14 comments Lisaaaaaaaa! this I vow truly ingenious! fancy it very much, what with the "book of the month, "reading challenges", and the threads. Well now I have acquired another medium to consult for a new book! *winkwink*

What's this about "buddy reads"? Would you be kind enough to enlighten me?


message 28: by Lisa Kay, Moderator (last edited Nov 10, 2011 02:53PM) (new)

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 20797 comments So glad you like the RLftCI November Newsletter. I had tons of help from ✿Michelle✿, CaroB, & Heather.

Here is a link that I hope answers your question. A Place for "Buddy Reads" We are thinking of doing some type of "Buddy Reads Calendar" -- so look for that soon. ☺


message 29: by Tracey (new)

Tracey Smith | 415 comments LOVE Buddy reads! A Buddy Read calendar would be great!


message 30: by Susan (susayq ~), Moderator (new)

Susan (susayq ~) (susayq) | 6062 comments Gah, yes! I'm all about Buddy Reads right now LOL
