In case you were wondering how buddy assignments were made...I simply wrote each username on a slip of paper, put them all in a bowl & drew out 2 names at a time. I have kept a record of all the assignments to make sure everyone gets different buddies in future months.



Take a look at your buddy’s “to-be-read shelf”. Choose 2 books from their list (a #1 choice and a back up choice). Then copy & paste the code in the box below into a comment to this post to let us know what you’ve selected for your buddy to read!




* You do NOT have to read both books that are selected for you. The back-up is primarily a ‘cushion’ in case you can’t get hold of a copy of the first book or you find that you can’t make yourself finish the first choice. But if you want to read both books, go for it!

* Please keep checking this post to see if your buddy has posted your assignment! If you’d rather I dropped you a PM when your assignment is posted so that you don’t have to keep an eye out, just let me know in a comments. (In case you were wondering, I’m having you post your selections here because I know some people have LJ messages turned off.)

* IF YOUR BUDDY HAS NOT MADE A SELECTION FOR YOU BY JANUARY 9, PLEASE LET ME KNOW & I WILL CHOOSE BOOKS FOR YOU.

* The sharing post will go up on JANUARY 27 and will be open thru JANUARY 31.



If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to leave a comment to this post or message me directly.



Happy reading!!!

Thank you! Going with #2 because I have this irrational need to read an entire series before I move on, and I wouldn't finish three novels this month :)

Really like these choices. Thanks! Will try and finish both of these, if I have time.

Will post your choices sometime later today. Your list has so many great books on it, I'm having hard time picking just two. :D

Your buddy’s name: tanyareed
Choice #1: I Still Dream About You - Fannie Flagg
Choice #2: This Matter Of Marriage - Debbie Macomber

Unfortunately, I didn't recognize anything on this list other than some author names, so I chose one from one of your favorite authors, and then one from Debbie Macomber.
I'm not sure if these are good books or not, but hopefully you will enjoy them! <3

Thanks! I've been waiting for your selection with anticipation. :) I couldn't get into GoodReads when I made your choices, so I made them by title alone. I hope whichever one (or both, if you decide) you read is awesome!
