At Bookshop Talk, it's All About the Love . . .

As you read the reviews on Bookshop Talk, you'll notice that every review is positive. No, we're not a bunch of literary pushovers who love everything we pick up; we just see no point in telling you about a book if we didn't like it.

There are so many great books in the world! New releases usually get all the glory at bookstores, but our mission at Bookshop Talk is to not only tell you about current reads that we love, but to introduce you to little known or all-but-forgotten literary gems, and to remind you why "classics" have been on the shelves for hundreds of years, their stories still applicable . . . timeless.

Our reviewers will come from as many different walks of literary life as we can manage to recruit them: child, teen, and adult readers, educators, librarians, booksellers, authors, agents, editors, publishers. We'll consider reviews from anyone, and books from almost every genre and with nearly every storyline (please click on the the "contact" book at the top of the website, and read our review policy).

If you want to be notified when we post a new review or interview, please subscribe via the Facebook, Twitter, or RSS links on the right sidebar. And the Google "follow" button is a great way to let us know you're out there and enjoying the content.

Thanks for joining us!
