Meet CoastReads, our new Twitter book club 

Let's talk books, 140 characters at a time.

Hey lit nerds, tired of book clubs that fall apart after one meeting, or make you feel crappy for not finishing that 700-page doorstop? Not us. Our Twitter book club, twitter.com/CoastReads, encourages lazy couches, snacks and great books.

For this first round we'll vote on a book from this list of award-nominated Atlantic Canadian books by April 30 (pick one from the poll down to the bottom-right), available at your favourite local book store.

Here's the less than 140-character(ish) round-up:

Anna Quon, Migration Songs--coughdrop-addicted outsider searching through the past

Ryan Turner, What We're Made Of--inner life of a young 20-something Haligonian man

Jessica Grant, Come Thou Tortoise--Odd narrator and opinionated tortoise wrapped up in a mystery

Carla Gunn, Amphibian--Precocious nine-year-old boy worried and overwhelmed by the natural world

Lisa Moore, February--kleenex required for this story of grief and recovery following the Ocean Ranger disaster

Anyone can participate in our book club by using #creads to comment or quietly follow on the night of our first meeting (date TBD, sometime near the end of May). Or send your questions to arts@thecoast.ca.

In the meantime, and even if you don't want to read, follow CoastReads on Twitter for book news, review links and contests.

Questions or suggestions about how it should work? Leave a comment.
