The Sunday Book Club (#TSBC) on Twitter is an initiative to get the Twitter community together at a particular time and day each week to discuss various book-related topics. The aim of the whole exercise, besides having fun, is to find like-minded individuals who share the same passion for books as you do and in the process find out about different books, authors, and genres that the bookworm in you might fancy.
How does #TSBC work?
It really is simple. Honest. 🙂
There are 6 questions. We tweet 1 question relating to that week’s topic every 10 minutes starting at 3 pm IST (Indian Standard Time) every Sunday afternoon. Your tweet response to the question and any subsequent discussion should include the hashtag #TSBC. We recommend that you follow the discussion on Twitter by typing #TSBC in the “search” box. The #TSBC hashtag ensures that you can look, follow the discussion and interact with other participants regardless of whether they are following you or you are following them on Twitter. If you “like” someone’s answer simply “retweet” and/or “favourite” it like you normally would on Twitter.
#TSBC is all about you. We try to make the questions open-ended with multiple answers. To make #TSBC more interactive, we request you to share your blog links related to book reviews with the hashtag #TSBC so that everyone can read interesting write-ups at any time with a simple search using #TSBC. We do, however, request you to avoid self-promotion during the actual #TSBC event that will take place from 15:00-16:00 IST every Sunday. Please, please, please avoid profanity and behave in a civilised manner.
The purpose of #TSBC is to promote everything to do with books. In case you like #TSBC (and we really hope that you do) and want to support it (and we really hope you will), please feel free to add a banner to your blog about #TSBC or simply talk about it on Twitter. It’s a great way to discover the magic of books and we will try our best to make it an interesting hour for you. You can count on finding about new books, interesting facts, and who knows we even might have competitions and special guests eventually.
We recommend that you follow The Sunday Book Club’s Twitter handle @TSBookClub and also the founders @raghavmodi, @sudhagee and @meetneo. We are also on Facebook and you can show us some love by liking our page. 🙂
For any questions or suggestions, please do comment below. And do spread the word about #TSBC and please make it to the talk.
Thank you and see you on Sundays! 🙂
