About this book blog

Since 2006, I have been blogging about three things: books, publishing and Birmingham. As fast as things change these days, I think it’s a great time to be keeping a book blog, tracking new books, and reading about the quickly evolving publishing industry. I am fortunate enough to work in book publishing and love the constant weaving of all the newness into all the oldness.

I am always on the lookout for a new great read and love to stop by any of the of the great bookstores we have around Birmingham. I am on LibraryThing and I think you should be too (say ‘hi’, if you are!). I have left Twitter and currently reside on Mastodon @tsutrav@indieweb.social but that may change as I’m still trying to figure out if this is the instance for me (for what it’s worth, I really appreciate the conversation there as well as the whole spirit of indieweb.social).

Leave a comment and let me know where you blog. I’d like to check it out. Especially if your blog has a bookish heart or you refer to it as your “book blog”. I think we might just get along.

Media Mentions

Basically, I’m a fan. A fan of books and bookstores. A fan of fiction and non-fiction. A fan of authors and publishers. And since Birmingham, Alabama is my backyard, I’ll post and keep up with as much as I can in and around town. Hopefully we’ll bump into each other.
