Read to Me Tuesday

By posted at 1:07 pm on September 1, 2009 1

Among the better Tumblr memes is Read to Me Tuesday, which is exactly what it sounds like:  people choose a passage from a book, call in and read the passage over the phone.  The resulting posts are compiled under the hashtag #RTMT and often re-blogged by rtmt.tumblr.com.  As we see increased interest in social reading experiments like bookglutton.com,  RTMT shows how the web might make social connection through reading aloud a possibility for the first time since, well, story time.  Plus it’s really, really fun.
