The main problem with Twilight isn't its sparkly vampires who lack all traditional weaknesses, or even its anti-feminist sensibility.

What is “Social Reading” and why should Libraries care? – A TTW Guest Post by Allison Mennella « Tame The Web

What is “Social Reading” and why should Libraries care? – A TTW Guest Post by Allison Mennella « Tame The Web | Edumathingy | Scoop.it
Social reading,” as a concept, is actually quite simple: ;people want to share what they have read with other people and receive feedback about their thoughts and ideas. &Technology is the great enabler for social reading, and the natural place for this activity to cultivate. Social reading has several key characteristics.;First, social reading is an extremely public activity. Gone are the days of ;selfish, private reading: reading alone in the bathtub, alone under the covers, alone on the couch, alone in the park, etc. Social reading exists because of the interactions between two or more persons and the text, whether in-person or digitally. ;Second, social reading extends the readers experience. ;It takes the reader out of the book and encourages the reader to make connections, draw conclusions, summarize thoughts, and ask questions in conversation with others.Social reading helps a book become memorable; it can be a conversation starter between two new friends, or a way to develop online skills like reviewing, recommending, communicating via social media platforms, and exploring what it means to be part of a community of shared interests (both on and off line).
