'One Book, One Twitter' launches worldwide book club with Neil Gaiman
American Gods chosen as the launch book for plan to get 'a zillion people all reading and talking about a single book'

Now a new project is hoping to take the "one book, one city" initiative a step further, and get the whole world reading the same novel.
