Librarians have a great new way to share book recommendations with readers and with each other. On Thursdays from 10-11 a.m. MST, the conversation on Twitter turns to books on the #AskaLibrarian hashtag.
This was an initiative launched in November by Penguin Random House and Read It Forward, a reader community program sponsored by Crown Publishing Group’s Community Development department. It brings together librarians, library patrons, other consumers, library marketing representatives, and publishers in a huge tweet swap on good books and good readalikes, with the hashtag facilitating searches by anyone who can’t jump in at the appointed hour.
