In September 2013, Tumblr announced the launch of a new feed, the Reblog Book Club. It’s an online book club blog where tweens, teens, and adult readers can gather to share their thoughts on selected books via posts, artwork, video blogs, songs, and nail art.
Readers contribute to the book club either by posting about the book to their own Tumblr feed and tagging the posts #reblogbookclub, or by submitting posts to the book club’s Tumblr. The site also gives authors a chance to answer questions from readers.
Tumblr is a diverse collection of blogs that focus more on images than the written word. Users post images on their blog and label these with hashtags that fall under broader categories. Users then follow other posters.
During her book signing, Anderson gave a nod to the sight, saying how delighted she was to have readers share their own insights on her latest book, The Impossible Knife of Memory. The fact that the blog also incorporates the art of readers is exciting, she says. Take a look • reblogbookclub.tumblr.com
