Welcome to our brand spankin’ new website!
The dust is still settling and the paint is not completely dry, but we are open for business!
So what can you expect to find here? Glad you asked.
First off reviews. Lots of reviews. We have a team of book-loving fools just chomping at the bit to get all the reviews that are already written, but just need to be uploaded to this site.
We created this site to fulfill a need we saw—a lack of resources for finding good books. We hope to become the site for finding great stories for you and your family. There are a lot of sites covering what’s selling. We’re not interested in that. We won’t turn away a book because it is popular, but neither will we give it any extra weight.
We’ll go far and wide to hunt down these books and share them with you here. Our plan is to put together curated lists of good books by genre and perhaps other categories.
Let us know in the comments what books you’d like us to review and we’ll look into it. We’re not a huge team, but we’ll do our best to consider every suggestion.
Reviews are likely to be 80-90% of what you’ll find here, but that’s not all.
You’ll also find articles on what makes for good books, on current trends in publishing, and all things book-related.
We may share from time to time more personal observations, but most of our articles will be about books. Plain and simple.
Gatherings & Events
We’re more than just a site for reviewing books. We aim to be a community of literary shepherds and part of that involves getting together and talking about what we’re reading and how we can become more better readers and better stewards and ambassadors for the literary world.
We meet monthly and we may report on those meetings from time to time.
We also host a yearly conference and you can be sure to hear all about that when it happens. Our next one is scheduled for March 3rd, 2018. More on that coming soon!
Beyond that, if there is a book release we’re excited about, a play we think you should see, or some other exciting occurrence that rocks our literary world, we’ll spread the news here as well.
We hope this site is something you’ll find as valuable as we do. Because we’re making it for ourselves as well as you.
We look forward to sharing more in the days and weeks ahead. In the meantime, we’d love to hear from you in the comments. Let us know what you think of the site!
