One of our goals for 2012 was to create a reading community. A place where book lovers could come together and discuss not just our monthly selections but lots of books. That dream was realized this summer when we created our blog network: a group of voracious readers who are committed to sharing the stories and authors they love with the world. You can find the entire group here. But we wanted to take some time over the next few months and introduce them to you individually.
Up first is the lovely Jaime Boler.
Why we love her: Jaime is enthusiastic and supportive and she writes some of the most thoughtful book reviews you’ll read anywhere. You’ll definitely want to follow her, regardless of where she is online.
