One Book, One Twitter Kicks Off Today

If I didn’t already have so many books in my TBR pile, I would jump into this experiment with reading (via Wired).

Today is the official premiere of One Book, One Twitter (#1b1t). For anyone just arriving, huffing and puffing, to the shindig, we’re reading American Gods, by Neil Gaiman.

So now that we know what we’re reading, we still have to answer the question: How do you get thousands of people to read one book together without ruining the suspense and twists for anyone?

Currently, I’m reading Naomi Klein’s No Logo and enjoying it. Yeah, it’s ten years old, but I can rarely ever get to a book when it first comes out.

  1. That is interesting what people on Twitter are doing. My book list is way behind too…although not 10 years!!!! LOL

  2. @Karin, Well, not ten years. Though there are some books that have been in my TBR pile for three or four years. LOL Just that for some reason, books that I’m interested in reading when they come out don’t make it into my TBR pile for awhile. Ugh. There are so many books I want to read and so little time.

    • Everytime a book I want to read comes out it goes straight on my list, unless it seems really important that I read it right away. I’m finding with some though that I no longer want to read them, or they just don’t hold my attention. So many only get read through the first 2 chapters then away they go. Talk about UGH!

      • I have that problem, too; with some books the fire to read them has gone out, or like you say, I read a few chapters thinking I should be liking it and then…nada. Others just sit in my pile, taunting me. I’ve had VS Naipaul’s A House for Mr. Biswassitting in my pile for close to four years. I’ve never read anything by Naipaul. Everytime I think I’m about to get to it…something else pops up, like say Kevin Brockmeier’s The Brief History of the Dead, which is phenomenal book and then I go on to something else, say Kate Atkinson’s When Will There Be Good News? and then something else and I forget about the Naipaul for a few months…and then the unintended skipping over it starts again.
