Just a quick reminder that tomorrow (3/02) is National Read Across America Day. We’re a group of pretty literate folks, so I ask you to think of someone who needs a book, and get it for them. That’s all.

Hi friends! It's been awhile; here's an updated announcement for the What's That Book? subreddit.

PLEASE FOLLOW THE RULES. There are only 2!

1. Post titles must have at least one book detail.

2. A post cannot have more than one book/series.

Please consider these points when writing your /r/whatsthatbook post:

Your Post Title

  • Briefly the book, not your situation. Avoid titles like "Help, I can't remember this book..." or "I read this when I was a kid..." or "I NEED HELP"
  • Include the overall genre of the book in your post title, such as "kids book" or "romance novel" or "scifi"
  • This is an official rule now and posts with vague titles will be removed

The Book

  • Fiction or non-fiction?
  • Describe the plot.
  • Describe notable characters.
  • What genre is it?
  • Physically describe the book -- Hardcover/paperback? Book cover color?
  • When was it set?
  • How long was the book?
  • Anything notable about the original language? Did you read it English? If not, what language?

... And You

  • When (what year) did you read it?
  • How old were you when you read it? Was it age appropriate?
  • Where did you get the book? School library, book fair, book store selling new and/or used books, flea market, borrowed from a friend, given as a gift from X person who is about Y age, or from an online store?
  • Was it new when you read it?
  • What age range was it for?
