"Twinning" your group
Posted by: Rebecca Vnuk

Has anyone ever thought of “twinning” your book discussion group?

According to  Opening the Book, a library consultant group in the UK, twinning is when you “twin with a local group and exchange opinions on books by email/post/library courier; twin with a national or international reading group and talk about reading habits and preferences by email – and maybe read the same book!”

I’m intrigued by this idea – does anyone have any experience with this?  I think it might make a nice alternative to all of the “One Book One City”-type programs out there, this is a little fresher and appeals to your core readership.
