Reading holds a special place in our lives for many of us. And while reading is intrinsically a solitary pursuit, we love to talk about the latest book we have just devoured. Our closest literary friends get our best-reads after we're finished. Sometimes they get the not-so-great-reads.

If this sounds a little like you, then welcome. We hope this becomes a favorite stop for you to hear interviews with some of your favorite authors and discover new ones. Over the coming months, with your participation, we hope to make this a lively venue for discussions and exchanges of literary ideas.
