Turkey reading (also turkey-ing) is a type of MST3K-ing of badfic, generally done as a group activity in email loops, or in person at conventions.

Like other kinds of badfic mocking, turkey reading is a way for fans to show off their cleverness, and even cruelty, to their friends.

Unlike other kinds of badfic mocking, turkey reading is usually a private activity, not exposed where the writer might be able to read it.
