Hi, I'm planning to read 'A Man Called Ove', by Fredrik Backman. Will start it in about a week. If anyone wants to read-a-long, please let me know ASAP. Greg
A great book! I have read it already and loved it. Otherwise, I would have read it with you. Enjoy!

Hi, I'd like a Read Buddy for a book! The book is 'See You in the Cosmos' by Jack Cheng. This book, although for so-called younger audiences, has recently been translated to my language, so I thought it would be interesting to read it with someone in its native language and to point out some possible differences and meanings of the book that were added or lost in translation.

Great. I will order my copy on or around the release date. This is my first read-a-long, so not sure how it all works. But hopefully it'll be a good experience 😏

Me too. I will let you know when I have it. :)

We decide on how it works, mainly we read at the same time and compare impressions, so it should be fun. :)

Sorry for the late response! A sequel to Small Spaces sounds amazing! I just requested it from my library. There are two people ahead of me, but I can't imagine it would take too long for it to come through. I'll let you know when I have it, though. :)

I'd like a read-a-long for The Institution, by Stephen King
It was released today, I bought a copy, and I've read 8 chapters, so far it's really good

There's a booktube live show by the Papercut Bookclub for Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson at the end of this month so I'd be interested in a read-a-long starting probably at the end of this week.

The book is on my list, but I have a couple of books I want to read before it.
