How the Love2Read reading group works
2012 is Australia’s National Year of Reading.
To celebrate the joys of reading, each month in 2012 readers will be reading around a particular theme. As well as discussing what they are reading in book groups, at their local library and with friends and family, some readers will also be tweeting about their reading.
To be involved in this reading group, you don’t have to tweet – you can just read along each month if you like. But if you tweet about what you are reading by tagging your posts with #NYR12, other people will see what you are reading and might start conversations with you.
We see this as a really exciting way to take conversations into public spaces where reading communities can share and collaborate.
If you would like to tweet what you are reading, check the theme for each month of 2012 using the links on the right side of this blog – and when you tweet, add the twitter hashtag #NYR12 to your posts.
You might also like to use the monthly themes for your face to face reading groups. You might select one title each month which suits the theme, or you might like to use the theme and see what reading people bring along to talk about.
