If you’re a regular tweeter, you might have seen the #BookADay hashtag pop up in those trending topics since the beginning of June. A certain global competition has taken over in recent days (although, there are a number of titles that embrace the beautiful game – including Fever Pitch by Nick Hornby), but there’s still lots of tweet activity to be found relating to the wide and wonderful world of literature…
Alas, it’s not a declaration of a mammoth feat of devouring a whole book in the space of 24 hours, but still a very impressive celebration of reading. For the 30 days of June, Borough Press is asking people to tweet their Book A Day, with each day devoted to a different topic.
So far, the challenge has covered favourite book from childhood, a book that you have more than one copy of and a book that reminds you of someone you love. Just those topics could make us think for weeks, never mind days!
If you haven’t already been involved in Book A Day, there’s still time to take part – just look up the day’s topic (there’s a full list below) and add #BookADay to your tweet to join in the conversation with literary lovers across the world.
Today’s topic is ‘Makes me laugh’ – tons to choose from, surely selections from Roald Dahl and P.G. Wodehouse must be up there amongst many others (and of course, The Globe’s production of Much Ado About Nothing will be making us laugh at the Garden Theatre not once, but twice today)…why not share yours?
