Neat Idea: Twitter Science Fiction Book Club

Over at AzureScape, a beautifully simple idea has been proposed.

  • In the next two weeks, read or re-read Joe Haldeman’s The Forever War. The book should be readily available in brick-and-mortar stores, on Amazon, or in audio format through Audible.
  • Starting on 15 May, we’ll discuss the book on Twitter for a week, appending the hashtag #sfbookclub to all relevant tweets to make the conversation easy to follow, either through the site TweetChat, Twitter Search, or the search functionality of most Twitter clients.
  • Feel free to spread the word about #sfbookclub in the next two weeks, but please don’t share any major plot points until the discussion starts.

I’ve been meaning to this book for, like … forever. So I’ll be participating.

  1. I read this over the weekend, while enjoying a “not Mexico” cruise. I’m even more excited about the discussion now that I’ve read the book. I’m writing a review, but I’ll post it after the #sfbookclub.
