Fan of David Bowie? Like to read? Consider joining the David Bowie Book Club.

The informal group was launched by Bowie’s son, movie director Duncan Jones, on Twitter.

The idea was hatched earlier this week when Jones tweeted about Bowie’s famous reading habits.

Jones explained that his dad was heavy into reading, and since Peter Ackroyd was one of his favorites, the book club's first pick is Peter Ackroyd’s Hawksmoor.

Jones would later positively respond to a fan’s suggestion of a David Bowie library, followed by a retweet of a fan-shared image of Bowie’s 1987 “Read” poster in support of the American Library Association.
