Books That Made Me Cry Hashtag Makes Twitter Readers Weepy

twitterlogo2323.jpgToday readers around the globe answered the simple question: What books made you cry? Post your favorites on Twitter, and use the #booksthatmademecry hashtag when you post.

Twitter trend starter and novelist Jason Pinter opened the Twitter hashtag this morning. He also reported the most popular responses so far: Where the Red Fern Grows, Marley & Me, Charlotte’s Web, and Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows.
