After Jeff Howe's autocratic decree that we read The Great Gatsby
last month, it's time for our Twitter book club to seize power back for democracy. On our hashtag, #1book140
, opinion is divided between Whodunnits and novels with international themes. Since it wouldn't be democracy without at least two parties, let's start by nominating both.
To nominate a book, add your suggestions in the comments below. eaders on Twitter have already suggested whodunnits and international novels by Raymond Chandler, Gabriel Garcia Márquez, and Graham Greene. A small revolt may be brewing among Beach Readers, but there's room in this democracy for a third party.
In the meantime, you can still participate in conversation on The Great Gatsby or the parallel conversation on Sherman Alexie's Blasphemy.
Nominations close midday on Saturday.
