Here is the #hashtagbrigade #buddyread schedule! Anyone can join at any time. I have a master tag list that I use once a month to see who is interested in the next book. I use that tag list to post every day. We read a chapter a day and I post every day. The hashtags are often ridiculous and always chapter spoilers, so don‘t read my post until you‘ve read the chapter!

Okay #RandomClassics friends, here is the schedule for Puck of Pook's Hill!! It seems that this is a collection of short stories and poems.
