What is a Book Date
A Book Date is a mutual commitment in which two or more people interested in honestly passing a 'to-be-read' title into their 'read' category agree to a specified time period in which to read a book "together," beginning on or after the start date and ending on or before the closing date. Throughout they discuss reading notes, raise questions and offer reflections.
My friend bardbooks offered something like this over the holidays and the concept ignited my imagination. How would it be to peruse someone's shelves, find a 'I've been meaning to read that for a long time' book and forgo further procrastination with a reading buddy?

These I'm open to reading together. Find a book you like, or show me a URL to your reasonable facsimile of this page, with your own shelves, and I'll see if a book I've always wanted to read is in your collection.

I'll post a table with a title, and agreed upon dates for beginning and ending, and your choice of: a pseudonym like '[adjective] Reader' or your username, or initials, only for differentiation. No other details will be shared.
If you prefer as long as 364 days to read a book, I'll go along with your spiffy notion.
