What’s Happening at WhatstheBook?

Over the last eleven months the Sullivan Library and Learning Resource Center has tweeted 541 times on our Twitter account WhatstheBook. While we haven’t come close to Justin Bieber’s or Ashton Kutcher’s tweet volume, we tweet nearly every day from a book in the library’s collection. On the following day we provide the title to the previous day’s tweet, and we tweet from another book in the collection.

During the month of November we tweeted about the subject of food to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday. Here are some of the tweets and the titles from which they came. We’ve also provided the call numbers for the books featured below in case you want to check them out from the library.

“Biting into a crunchy cornbread crust is just one of the pleasures associated with this treat.” Appalachian Home Cooking by Mark F. Sohn (641.5974 S682a).

“But then it was Thanksgiving, and my grandmother’s kitchen was ablaze in harvest color. . .” The New Thanksgiving Table by Diane Morgan (641.568 M847n)

If these tweets have piqued your interest, we invite you to follow us at WhatstheBook. In December we will be tweeting about such topics as: National Cookie Week (yum!), Christmas, Kwanzaa, the start of the Islamic New Year, and much more.
