Love2Read Wrap up-Twitterchat recommendations
Tuesday evening was the National Year of Reading finale chat, discussing what you Love2Read. You can read the twitterchat on Readwatchplay storify.
So much reading, so little time. In 2013 join the Twitterchat, and talk about what you enjoy reading, watching and playing. Use #rwp to connect with the conversation. You can check out the themes here.
Remember, next year, we are changing to #rwpchat to include reading, watching and playing.
