Discover: Literature

Friday, 24 February 2012

Like a good book, Twitter can take you anywhere. And now it’s even easier to discover literature and follow your favorite authors, critics, magazines and publishers by downloading the official Twitter app on the Barnes & Noble NOOK Color and NOOK Tablet, and the Amazon Kindle Fire.

Twitter also strengthens the bond between writers and fans by helping you interact in real time. Connect your Twitter account to your Kindle account to tweet your favorite highlights, or pose questions to authors like @SusanOrlean and @StevenBJohnson directly from your device via the new @author beta from Amazon. Follow your favorite authors on Twitter and read their latest Tweets on their Amazon Author Pages.

Whether you want to ask @MargaretAtwood a question or find out what’s on William Gibson’s (@GreatDismal) reading list, Twitter brings you instantly closer to the writers you care about, and also to your fellow readers. Join a Twitter book club to discover new stories with other readers around the world. This month, The Atlantic magazine’s @1book140 leads readers in discussions of four graphic novels, and @PenguinUSA kicks off its Twitter book club with The Weird Sisters by Eleanor Brown (@EleanorWrites).
