Boston Book Bloggers Summer Reading Suggestions

Don’t pack your vacation bags until after this event.  Join Porter Square Books as Boston area Book Bloggers share the books they think everyone should read.  The blogs that will be joining us are:

3 Guys One Book originated as a way for three friends in the book business to talk about books together. Featuring short reviews of stories and novels, publishing news, photography, and the popular 3G1B group discussion, the site launched in early 2008 with a conversation about Mark Sarvas’ Harry, Revised. Today, 3G1B has developed to include guest posts from writers and publishing personalities, extensive interviews, even more reviews, and most popularly, “conversations” in which the four guys opine on subjects such as ebooks, writing techniques, bookselling, p.r., and the future of publishing.

Books on the Nightstand At Books on the Nightstand, we strive to bring you great book recommendations, as well as a behind-the-scenes look at the world of books, bookstores and publishing. We do this through our weekly podcast and frequent blog posts. Michael Kindness and Ann Kingman are friends and colleagues who work in the publishing industry. That means that we talk about books all day long to other people who love to talk about books. But sometimes, those conversations have to end before we’re ready to stop talking. Thus, this blog.

Boston Bibliophile is a book blog featuring book reviews of literary fiction, graphic novels and narrative non-fiction. And whatever else I feel like! I make book club recommendations and keep detailed book lists of what I've read and reviewed.

Boston Book Bums
is a site written by lovers of books and would-be writers of books. The reviews and recommendations are designed to span many interests and genres. Unlike many book blogs, here you could see horror one day and historical non-fiction the next. We are a diverse lot, with a plethora of interests and all we seek is to put our two cents into the book buying kitty.

The Things They Read This is a love letter to the story. It is a time capsule for future generations of writers and readers. To those who cannot know us and who will only know what we leave behind: The things we wrote and the things we read. Melanie Yarbrough writes, but mostly she reads. She loves all the different ways you can say something, and all the different ways you can (mis)understand something. Her family, Emerson College, angry bar patrons and several indifferent men have all contributed to her writing. When she’s not writing about fiction, she’s writing fiction.

This will be a great event for book lovers and every one will go home with a long list of books they absolutely have to read next. Here are the books they're recommending.
