February's Teen Book Chat

Our second chat of the year will take place Monday, February 3 on Twitter at 8:00 PM Eastern Time.  The first hour of the chat, we'll discuss the four questions, one every fifteen minutes.  For the last half an hour, we'll just have an open chat relating to the topic or other things YA books. Don't forget to use the hashtag #TBkChat to keep in the chat.  February's topic is : Being a Teen Reader Today.

The questions are:
Q1 Do you think being an active teen reader is more accepted now than before the success of books like #HarryPotter?
Q2 Do you think the internet has made reading into less of a solitary hobby, with things like Tumblr and fanfiction sites?
Q3 Do you think interactive fan websites with forums and such encourage a love of books or take time away from actually reading?
Q4 Do you use website to interact with other lovers of YA?  If so, which websites?

Please comment, tweet about, share, blog about, ect this chat.  If you have a blog, grab the button HTML in the sidebar.  If you know a few YA lovers who'd be interested, send them this link. The more people involved, the better!

Leave a comment it you have any questions.  Thank you for reading.

This chat is specifically for teens to get together and talk about books.  Adults are welcome to participate, as long as they realize this chat's intended audience and understand the chief purpose of the chat is to encourage teenage conversation about books.


  1. I'm setting a reminder in my phone right now so I don't forget this time. I can't wait for next week! This is a great topic.


Comments are awesome, rudeness is not. The point is to start a conversation not a yelling match. We're not trying to change people's mind, we're trying to get them thinking. 'Nuff said.
