On June 7th, Join the Conversation about Summer Reading

What’s on your reading list this summer?  Whatever you’re planning, and whatever your thoughts on the notion of “summer reading” in general, The New York Times Learning Network invites you to take to Twitter on June 7 and tell the world.

Along with a big, and growing, list of collaborators, The NYT Learning Network is encouraging people of all ages to post their lists, recommendations, thoughts and ideas on June 7th with the hashtag #summerreading.

The Learning Network will be following and re-broadcasting their favorite posts when people like Neil Gaiman, Diane Ravitch and Andy Richter joined thousands of students from kindergarten up to post messages about #whyIwrite.

Wondering what you should tweet?  Here are some ideas:
  • What you want to read — or have to read — this summer.
  • Wonderful, or awful, memories of summer reading
  • Quotes about summer reading, or about reading in general
  • Book recommendations for others
And be sure to check out the list of collaborators participating in the #summerreading discussion!
