WELCOME! Here are the details!

HI GUYS! *waves excitedly*

Anyone who wants to join, can set up Readalongs and Buddy Reads with eachother here on this blog.
Someone can post what they’re thinking of reading on a new blog post, and others can express their interest down in the comments of that post! Then, people can add discussion posts together (non-spoilery, of course unless detailed in title + description) which others can read about later!

This blog is open to anyone who wants to use it! It’s an opportunity to meet lots of the other booklovers here on the site, and give you the ability to read books at the same time as your mates!

You can choose any books you want, or maybe you might want to do readalongs of an author’s works (like if there’s an upcoming guest poster here on the site! *hint hint*).

The world is your oyster!
Happy reading, folks!!

This is kind of silly, but what exactly is a read along *blushes*

Hahaha, no! It’s not stupid at all! I might actually do another post clearing up what exactly this is all about.
But basically it’s about agreeing with other people to read a book at the same time so that you can chat at about it while you’re experiencing it. Or at least that’s how I view it! I just thought it’d be something fun that could really help to build this community :)

Oh ok that makes sense. I was really confused. Well you should start the read alongs in a week, since that's when everyone will be back at school and have better access to books

Basically the readalongs can be started by anyone. Anyone can suggest a book and anyone who is interested can join them (most likely by commenting on their original post). That way lots of people can do different readalongs all at the same time :))))
