Almost all of us know that Facebook is one of the largest online social networking service. It is a social utility that connects people with friends and others who work, study and live around them. However, it is more than just this.
Have you ever looked closely at the word ‘FaceBOOK’? Yes, it includes ‘book’ in it and, hence, IS a book. The question here arises: have you ever really used it as a book?
If you have not used it as a book as yet, then you should now because it is not called FaceBOOK for nothing! In this particular post, we will be sharing with you 10 literary Facebook pages you should like so that you can correctly use this website.
[divider]Book Week Scotland[divider]
The Scottish Book Trust started this Facebook page. It was of a very small kind and its success and popularity was just unpredicted. The name was given based on Scotland’s first national celebration of books and reading in which 350 fantastic events for ages were held all across the country.
One day, the Scottish Book Trust created this awesome ‘Who in Fiction Are You?’ quiz and, voila! This wicked test, which told the people what fictional character they were, gained a lot of fame and admiration and the page grew to be what it is today. (You can take this test on their page. It is still present there).
You must check out this page because you must be well-aware of how cool Scottish people are; there is loads of amazing stuff on this page which I am sure that you will definitely want to read.
Shelf Awareness is yet another wonderful Facebook page aimed at helping people make decisions about reading, buying, selling and lending books most wisely.
