Well, little Figgies, the #summerreading Twitter-fest was a grand success, and we have you (and not Justin Bieber) to thank. Together, with a whole host of our favorite literary organizations, we asked the Twitter-sphere to tweet out their favorite summer reads and reading spots. Some literary bigwigs shared their reading selections for the summer months, including James Patterson, Judy Blume, and our own Dana Goodyear, but our favorite part was finding out what you’re reading this summer! Check out the highlights of the day (and our increasingly desperate attempts to convince the Biebs to participate) in the recap below.
We’d like to give a big shout out to Katherine Schulten at the New York Times Learning Network for conceiving of and organizing the #summerreading day. You rock Katherine!!!
