Book Clubs

Birds of a Feather Read Together!

Welcome to the @Penguinusa Twitter Book Club
This month’s pick is:
The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey
Every month we’ll be inviting our @PenguinUSA Twitter followers to join us in reading and discussing a book selected by the staff here at Penguin. We’ll be checking in on Twitter periodically throughout the month, letting followers know where we are in the book, and opening the forum for discussion (but please, no spoilers!). We invite users to ask questions about the book as they read, and to look out for tweets about when we’ll be dedicating time for “mini book club meetings” during the course of the month. Be sure you use #readpenguin when you tweet. We’ll hope you’ll join us as we read this month’s pick. If you have a suggestion for a Penguin title you’d like picked for a future book club, send us a DM at @PenguinUSA. Tweets about “#readpenguin”
Looking for tips for following the Twitter chat?
To follow the chats we suggest one of the following:
  1. If you use hootsuite to manage twitter, create a column within your account with the #readpenguin to follow along.
  2. Visit Tweetchat, log in with your twitter ID and track the hashtag #readpenguin. Tweetchat will automatically include the hashtag in any tweets send from here.

Praise

“Remarkable, not-to-be-missed-under-any-circumstances.” —Entertainment Weekly

“A modern sci-fi masterpiece… should do for aliens what Twilight did for vampires.” —USAToday.com
