Twitter Chats – connecting with other book lovers!

This weekend I went to on a mission to find a Twitter chat I could participate in that interested me. Now, if you aren’t 100% what a Twitter chat is, check out this link. It gives a pretty good run down of what a Twitter chat is, and how they work.

I knew I wanted to participate in some type of Education related chat, and I knew it needed to be either on Saturday, Sunday or Monday. Originally, I hoped I could participate in the #saskedchat Twitter chat, but I unfortunately have a class during the time in which that chat runs. So I went to trusty rusty ol’ Google and plugged in the following:

The very first link that popped up looked promising, so one click later and I was welcomed to a wonderful website that listed the day and time of a TON of Education Twitter Chats. Jackpot! So I started going through the list. I found one called #Read4Fun. I love reading and I love books, so I thought this would be a good pick for me. I did some searching of it on Twitter and found out that it runs every first and third Sunday every month. I also found out that because of the Superbowl (I’m assuming here, but you know what happens when you assume) it was off for this Sunday night (Feb. 3rd) but they had a ‘slow-chat’ going in it’s placed. The question for the slow-chat was “What are some books in your TBR pile that you’ll be tackling soon?”.

This is what I replied with:

I also learned how to do a ‘scroll capture’ on my Samsung Galaxy S8 (yay for smart tech!).

I plan on joining the next #Read4Fun Twitter chat that’s to take place on Feb. 17th, this way I can get a real experience with this Twitter chat to connect to more people who share my love for books!

What are some of the books you are reading right now or ones that are in your TBR (to be read) pile?

  1. I remember my first Twitter chat–I had a date picked and was ready to go, and then the chat just never started. It was a good reminder to always make sure that the chat you choose still runs! And I love the chat that you were a part of, it seems like so much fun!! I personally have so many books to read and I don’t know where I’ll even find the time, so I also commend you on being able to read three books at once. I also like your use of screenshots so that we know how the chat went. Great post!

  2. The next next two books in my TBR pile are “Redeeming Love” by Francine Rivers and “The Sisterhood” by Bobbie Houston.

    It’s great that your were able to find a chat that is centered around something that you love!
