What if Everyone on Twitter Read One Book?

If you are on Twitter, consider joining the One World, One Twitter Book Club! They started reading on May 5th. The idea is similar to The Big Read program that Albuquerque participates in during October.

'Last year Edinburgh residents tackled Arthur Conan Doyle's dinosaur adventure The Lost World, last month Dubliners were taking a collective look at The Picture of Dorian Gray, and Brighton's readers are currently engrossed in Ian Fleming's James Bond novel From Russia with Love. Now a new project is hoping to take the "one book, one city" initiative a step further, and get the whole world reading the same novel.' -from The Guardian article

The book that the book club is reading is American Gods by Neil Gaiman. Read about it on Gaiman's blog.
