Shifting Gears

This time last year She Reads did not exist online or anywhere else. As a matter of fact, it was not until May of 2009 that She Reads founder, Marybeth Whalen, first conceived the idea while speaking with author Susan Meissner. Three months later we launched this site as both an online book club and a gathering place for readers.

And now we are fine tuning the way we operate, expanding our reach, and introducing a few key changes that will take place this year:

1. Starting in February will feature one book each month instead of three books per quarter. We feel this will give you a better chance to meet our selected authors and get acquainted with their novels.

2. Our newsletter will now go out on a monthly basis instead of quarterly. Focusing on one book per month gives us the opportunity to go deeper with each author and provide you with more resources: book club activities, interviews, contests, book giveaway’s, etc.

3. One of the consistent requests we get is for more book recommendations. And although we can only choose twelve novels per year as book club choices, we can suggest other good reads. We began the Worth Reading feature in December and will continue to do so monthly.

Is there anything else you’d like to see us do? Now is the time to speak up! If you’ve got a suggestion on how we can better meet your needs, just leave a note in the comment section below.

How can we better meet your needs?

Pretty soon She Reads will have been up and running for 3 months. We’ve implemented some of what we want and are working on the rest. We appreciate those of you who are hanging with us as we figure out how to create a community for Christian fiction lovers everywhere. We want to thank you for your support, your willingness to spread the word, and your encouraging notes lettting us know you’ve discovered a new favorite writer or been challenged or changed by a book. That is our goal.

Now we want to hear from you. How can we better meet your needs? Is there something we’re not doing that we should be doing? Is there something that you thought She Reads would feature that we are not? We want to continue to tweak and expand our efforts so that we can become a trusted place you visit regularly for all the latest in Christian fiction updates. You can leave a comment or write to us via the “Contact Us” form.

Please keep coming back. We’ve got some great contests lined up, some exciting guest posts, and a new feature that will begin the first week of December called “Worth Reading” where we will profile books that we just can’t pick because we only have 3 spots per season but are still, well, worth reading. We hope this will help those of you who devour books and need more recommendations to keep you satisfied! We’re voracious readers ourselves… we certainly understand.
