About Our Traveling Sisters Group Reads

img_5911-1

The Traveling Sisters are members of a Goodreads reading group started and hosted by us, Brenda and Norma.  We are a small private invite only group mostly made up of active popular reviewers on Goodreads.  Brenda organizes group reads using mostly NetGalley and Edelweiss advanced copies as well as any publisher requests that would like a particular book read within the Traveling Sisters reading group.  We also review released books but we read those with our Traveling Friends reading group on Goodreads.

The Traveling Sisters all review on Goodreads with a few who review on their blogs as well.  We will sometimes include those links on our review post either to their blog or to their Goodreads review to show our different views or thoughts on the books we read.  For Brenda’s reviews, she combines her thoughts along with the group’s thoughts for her Traveling Sisters Review.

The Sisters:  Norma and Brenda

We have been reading and sharing books since we were young girls and once we were both more actively reading and reviewing on Goodreads we had a thought.  What if we were to read with other friends on Goodreads?  Would the dynamics change for us or would it bring in another great aspect to that dynamic?  Well it brought in another great aspect to that dynamic and that is where Lindsay our fellow Canadian ‘Sister” came in.  Lindsay was our very first Traveling Sister and then came Kaceey, and Susanne.  Then the idea of the Traveling Sisters reading group was born.  The Traveling Sisters reading group is more of an intimate setting where we are able to read and discuss books at a more intimate level where we really know our members and they know us.  That is really very important to us!
