One Book, One Twitter?

For all you Twitter fans out there - here's a creative use of social networking to create an online book discussion:

"Jeff Howe, the author and journalism professor who coined the term “crowdsourcing,” wants to take [social networking book clubs] a step further and use Twitter to create the world’s largest virtual book-reading club. Howe is partnering with The Atlanticmagazine on a project called 1book140 that starts on June 1 and will Twitter-fy one book a month as selected by users."

It starts today, June 1, and the first book up is The Blind Assassin, by Margaret Atwood.
