Tuesday Talks | Buddy Reads


It's Tuesday again and that means it time for another Tuesday Talks. If you don't know, Tuesday Talks is a Goodreads group started by Janie and Janelle where we discuss book related topics every Tuesday. Today we're talking about buddy reads and what we think of them.

Buddy reads are a hit and miss for me. I think ideally it's a great idea. I love the concept of making an individual idea something collaborative and interactive, but on the other hand it's also really restrictive. Sometimes people don't read the pace you want them to or your schedules don't necessary line up.

Nonetheless I have been doing a buddy read over the summer and it has been relatively successful. It's definitely been harder to keep up with the reading and blog posts in conjunction with my classes, but it's a really good motivation to keep me reading. Because this particular buddy read has been so successful, we're actually trying to get a group of bloggers, which will us the opportunity to network and read fantastic books together. Our group is called Read Together, Blog Together so if you're interested feel free to join us, the more the merrier!
