Let's see here...more info. One of us has professional qualifications in terms of selecting and recommending books to others. And one of us wrote her college personal statement on the influence Jo March, Eowyn, and Anne Shirley had on her life. We both have endless experience in pressing books on friends and/or strangers, bookshelves filled to the bursting point, and an insatiable desire to talk about whatever we've just finished.
Writers we mutually adore and thus will probably cover at one point or another: Melina Marchetta, David Mitchell, Georgette Heyer, and Ellen Emerson White. We're reading omnivores, with a definite young adult bent. Feel free to email us suggestions at bookmatesblog at gmail dot com.
