Our post about finding a reading buddy is getting a fair amount of attention. Frankly, I am not surprised. Social media has been a tremendous blessing kindred spirits scattered across the earth who are looking for other similarly minded souls.

When we shared that post in our book club, we realized that for many people finding a reading buddy (from among strangers) is almost like dating. A little bit of risk, a lot of getting to know each other, and a good amount of praying for the right match.

For those who are going on some “first dates” with a new reading buddy, we wanted to suggest a few delightful books that might help you get to know each other right away.
