Twitterature: The world's greatest books retold through Twitter
I received this book at a Christmas party last year. Thanks Akiko! I just finished reading it last week. The book is called Twitterature and is written by Alexander Aciman and Emmett Rensin, two students at the University of Chicago. They were only 19 years old when they wrote it!
Twitterature takes some of the greatest works of western literature, each distilled through the voice of Twitter to it purest, pithiest essence. The book provides everything you need to master the literature of the civilized world while relieving you of the burdensome task of reading it. My kind of book!
