Bookstacks Events for the Weekend of May 2-3

01 May

Saturday

Noon – Book Trivia: Summertime

For some outside of this virtual world, it is nearly Summer, and that is the theme of Saturday’s Book Trivia at 12 noon.  Summer holiday, summer title or anything that vaguely resembles summer Simeon will ask a question about it.  Bring your towel, sunscreen and flip flops and join both the Trivia and the Costume contest and have your chance to win 500L for each or even both. Googling is a must and it is fast and furious fun trying to be the first with the correct answer.

6:00 p.m. – Karoke

Jandai Writer is taking over Bookstacks on Saturday at 6pm and going to bring to you songs which everyday people in second life have recorded.  To submit one yourself, record your song on www.singsnap.com and submit it the link to Jandai Writer by 5pm on Saturday.  If you don’t want to sing, just come along to dance and listen to the fantastic efforts of the others.

Sunday

11:00 a.m. – Book Discussion: Blogs, Twitter, Social Networks and Other Sources of Book Recommendations

We are all searching for the next “great read,” but were are you looking? Do you have favorite blogs providing great reviews or are you following publishers on Twitter to keep up with new releases? And how do you balance keeping up with all those online resources AND still find time to read? Share your favorite resources and thoughts on managing in the week’s book discussion.

3:00 p.m. Poetry Libre Open Mic

Our friends at Poetry Libre are once again hosting an open mic poetry reading, scheduled to span as many time zones as possible. So grab a poem or just a seat and listen to the work of your fellow SL poets.
