Book Club on Twitter - #fountainreads The City and the City

How do we love thee, China...let us count the ways...

Well, fan or not, please join us for the Fountain Bookstore Book Club on Twitter with our co-host @bookladysblog.

Gracious thanks to Ballantine Books for sending China to Richmond (#rva) on the tour for Un Lun Dun. We hope he will return to another packed house soon. And thanks to Del Rey for including the questions in the back of the book...we love that.

Here is how the Twitter book club works:

Too dang lazy to go to book group?

Going to be out of town?

Live elsewhere?


Join us for Twitter Book Club.

Kelly (@RVABookChik), owner of Fountain (@FountainBkstore), will be our faciliator. The hashtag is #fountainreads.

Log into your Twitter account at the appointed time.

If you don't know what all this is and still want to participate, call Kelly or Tess at 804-788-1594 and we'll walk you through basic Twitter.

If you want to set it up on your own, here are the steps:

  • Create a Twitter account if you don't already have one.
  • Go to, sign in with your Twitter username and password
  • Enter fountainreads into the hashtag search box

That's it! Now you can follow the chat without the interference of whatever's going on with the rest of the Twitterverse today.

Newbies will be given help, so don't be shy.
