The time has come,

A wonderful day,

For those who love books,

called Read Tuesday.

Like Black Friday,

But not for television;

Give the gift of reading

This holiday season.

Please support the Read Tuesday Thunderclap. This will help spread awareness on the morning of Read Tuesday (December 9, 2014).

We currently have 37 supporters. We could use hundreds more.

We currently have a social media reach of 68, 184.

Every supporter helps. Even if you have a small following, your help is greatly appreciated.

Why does it matter?

  • More supporters shows that Read Tuesday is a big event.
  • A greater social media reach shows that Read Tuesday will reach many readers.
  • More readers attract more authors to enroll their books. This is great for readers.
  • More authors attract more readers to participate. This is great for authors.
  • When you—yes, YOU—sign up for the Thunderclap, it helps to attract more readers and authors, which helps everyone.

It’s easy to help:

  • Visit
  • Click Facebook, Twitter, or Tumblr and sign in.
  • Customize the message. (Optional.)
  • Agree to the terms. All that will happen is that the Thunderclap post about Read Tuesday will go out the morning of December 9.
  • (The warning message simply means that Facebook, Twitter, or Tumblr need your permission to post the Thunderclap message on December 9. This is the only post that Thunderclap will make.)


Read Tuesday is a Black Friday type of event just for book lovers. In 2014, it will be held on Tuesday, December 9, 2014.


Selected Tuesdays will feature promotions or pre-orders of children’s, tween, or teen books.

  1. Not sure if you knew this. You can only set a Kindle Countdown up so many days in advanced. Current range is Oct 21 – Nov 6. So you might need to make a big reminder for setting up in advance on the last week of November or December 1st.
