#fridayreads

If you are reading this blog, then you probably enjoy reading. As readers we tend to seek out other readers and book related "things". Whether it be going to a bookstore or reading book blogs or even joining book clubs, most of us like to talk about books. We like to seek out other like minded people and discuss books.

Well, there is a new medium for that kind of interaction. You may have heard of it, it is called Twitter. A little over a year ago @thebookmaven started a weekly meme called #fridayreads. She calls on her 30,000 followers to share what they are reading. She has gotten sponsors to give away prizes with each benchmark hit. For example @rainydaybooks, yes my Kansas City friends, THAT Rainy Day Books, has offered to give away a signed copy of the Doonesbury Retrospective. This week Kobo is offering up a free e-reader to a lucky participant. @thebookmaven has even started a Facebook page to celebrate #fridayreads. Her whole purpose is to get people talking about books.

So what are YOU reading?? Go to twitter or Facebook today and join the community.

By the way - I am reading Little Pink Slips by Sally Koslow. #fridayreads

Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
