What Do You Guys Think About A Read Along?

Recently I’ve been going through a reading slump. As a book reviewer I have to read a lot of books…Like a lot of books. Right now I have 16 books that I have on my list for next month. 16 books, and it’s probably going to grow! *sigh*

So the past two weeks I’ve found myself looking at my stack of books and wishing it would disappear. Β It’s not that I’m not excited about the books, I am! I can’t wait to read about Jason Bourne and immerse myself in the world of The Help. I just can’t seem to get myself to pick up a book and read it.

It’s taken some time, but I might have found a solution.I was wondering if you, my lovely readers, would like to read a book with me over the course of a couple weeks? Here’s what I’d do: First I’d give you guys a list of books and we’d decide what to read and decide how long it will take us to finish. Β I’m thinking more than 2 weeks but no more than 4 weeks. Β Then at the end of the week I’d post an update on how I’m doing, and you guys could either post on your blogs or talk about the book in the comments.

I think this could be a lot of fun. If I had someone(s) to read with then I would have more of a reason to get excited. And to actually finish a book.

So what do you think? Yes or No? Let me know! πŸ˜€

  1. I like this plan! I am always up for reading a new book. I’m just about to finish Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman. Any chance Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides or Bad Feminist by Roxanne Gay is on your to-read list?

  2. I’d love to! Although I have a lot of books in my TBR and I dont know if I’ll be able to find the book you chose, but I’ve always wanted to do something like this!

    • Awesome, well that’s two already! Some of the books on my list right now are: Daughter of Fortune by Isabel Allende, Sherlock Holms vol 2, Tiger’s Curse Colleen Houck, Mind of the Phoenix by Jamie McLachlan, The Borne Identity, The Help and The Witch of Lime Street.
      Any of those books work? What’s on your list, maybe I can find something from yours that’s also on mine. πŸ™‚

  3. I am that friend. And I would love to join this little reading club. Name the book and I am so there. It just sounds like so much fun.
