Did you know that there is another anipal bookclub, #AnipalBC ? It was originally started by @Oz_the_Terrier and is now being coordinated by @theGObros. I believe that GO comes up with a title and the anipals read it. they don't have a regular meeting like #Readpawty, but discuss it on Twitter when there they bump into each other. I googled anipalBC and found twitter references, but no blog.
After the April #readpawty, there was interest from AnipalBC to merge with readpawty. I said that we look forward to our meetings to chat about books and would like to keep our format. It was proposed that we have 2 books, one of general interest and one related to anipals in some manner.
I can see this working. We keep our meeting, discuss whatever book(s)we want then on to have our book chat afterparty. Everyone is invited. We can also talk about whatever book(s)whenever we find each other on line. No pressure to get any book completed. The AnipalBC seems to have a lot of dogs while readpawty is mainly cats with occasional dogs popping in. This would be a great way to get more folks involved with a great interchange of ideas.
Let me know what you think. Leave a comment so we can all see or contact me privately if you would rather.
