FridayReads is the biggest Social Media book club out there. It was established on Twitter by Bethanne Patrick (@thebookmaven) way back in 2009 as a means of sharing the joy of reading with everyone! Since that time it has grown from just 300 hundred participants to a staggering 6000-8000 regulars, and it is still growing. FridayReads features regular giveaways to participants, all you need to do is share the title of what you are reading on: Twitter with the #FridayReads hashtag; on Facebook at our FridayReads page or even on Tumblr. Feel free to visit and comment on fridayreads.com too, we love a good discussion!
Here is what Disha says about her show:
ONFM Book Club is a 1 hour show every Sunday. The show derived from my love of reading, I enjoy recommending books I have read to my friends, and thought it would be good to have a show focussing on book recommendations, and reviews for books I have read. We review the books within the top 10 taken from The Waterstones official book chart. The show features guests, ranging from play writers and those that love reading. They discuss a book they have recently read, some of their favourite authors, books, if they are involved in the literature scene, they are given a platform to discuss their work. We encourage listener participation, they are given the chance to e-mail and text in their opinions on the books we have discussed, and offer book suggestions.
