As you may remember, Kelly Jensen, Sophie Brookover and myself have a Readers’ Advisory chat on Twitter. The Readers’ Advisory chat uses the hashtag #ReadAdv; it takes place the first and third Thursdays of the month, at 8 PM EST and lasts an hour. The topic in February will be using awards and lists, such as the various ALA Awards, in Readers Advisory.
Angela Frederick (on Twitter, @angelina41) has a terrific “challenge” for anyone who likes Reader’s Advisory — basically, a challenge to oneself to read more genres: the Reader’s Advisory Challenge for 2013.
As explained at her Tumblr, she was busy with committee work in 2013 so is going to challenge herself to read “a (sub)genre or format that I normally shy away from. I want to branch out beyond my comfort zone.”
For January, it’s Horror; February – Science Fiction; March – High Fantasy, with the whole list here. And of course there is hash tag: #rac13.
I’m not sure about being able to fit in two horror for January, but I’m thinking about jumping in for February!
