According to my beloved Wikipedia:
A meme ( /ˈmiːm/) is an idea, behavior or style that spreads from person to person within a culture. While genes transmit biological information, memes are said to transmit ideas and belief information.
A meme acts as a unit for carrying cultural ideas, symbols or practices, which can be transmitted from one mind to another through writing, speech, gestures, rituals or other imitable phenomena. Supporters of the concept regard memes as cultural analogues to genes in that they self-replicate, mutate and respond to selective pressures.
For bloggers memes are daily, weekly or monthly prompts that help us come up with things to write. They are fun because they are basically fill-in-the-gap posts and because it satisfies that curiosity we all have when we read what other bloggers have posted.
I went around the net to find memes related to reading. Some I will actually starting using myself, some not so much (but I still love reading them). In any case, I thought it might be interesting to have them all in one place.
