This is so exciting!!!
The votes are in! The novel we will be reading and discussing for the first-ever One Book, One Tumblr is…
Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer.
It won by a landslide, garnering almost half of the total votes. Here are the next steps:
- Pick up a copy of the novel. It should be available at your local bookstore or online (Powell’s has new copies for 30 percent off). And for those with an aversion to paper, it’s also available as an e-book.
- Read, read, read — even if you’ve already read it.
- Post your ruminations, questions, and critiques, and tag them with#onebookonetumblr.
- Heart, reblog, and follow the discussion here.
Before the end of today, I will message five readers, at random, who reblogged the previous post so they can get a free copy of the novel, courtesy of Powell’s.
And if I’m not forgetting anything else, let the reading begin.1 HOUR AGO
