NYS LitTree's 'What Are You Reading?' Program
ABOUT NYS LITTREE'S "WHAT ARE YOU READING?" PROGRAM
New York State LitTree created the "What Are You Reading?" program in response to the National Endowment for the Arts Report on Reading in America. The purpose of the program is to encourage reading and discussion of books among friends and acquaintances.
For the LitTree program, participants may:
- Buy a book
- Read it
- Print out the form on the LitTree web site
- Sign on the front of the form, checking whether they wish the book returned to them or not
- Comment on the reverse of the form.
- Place the form in the book and mail to a friend. Books selected may be nonfiction, fiction, or poetry.
If participants choose to do so, they may send a copy of their comments to [email protected], with What Are You Reading? In the subject line. Comments may then be used, anonymously, as a springboard for an online forum about the book.
