A thistle growing from an open book, with the hashtag #ShareTheRead, the logo for all the Reader Experiences offered to readers by Indie Author Joy E. Rancatore. Includes the link www.joyerancatore.com/share-the-read.


More than a hashtag …

Stories unite us. When we greet one another with “Share The Read,” we’re acknowledging that tales bond us, books bring authors and readers together and stories teach us about each other and ourselves like no other tutor can.

Whether we link arms in a virtual book club, invite our in-person clubs for an author chat, accept a reading challenge or discover a new favorite story, we achieve a common goal: to Share The Read!

Thank you for joining me here to celebrate STORIES! I host many Reader Experiences throughout the year, and I’d love for you to join the fun.
