The Blog


We read a lot (and we do mean a lot)! We read on the couch, in bed until 2 A.M., while brushing our teeth, in the checkout line at the post office, at Starbucks, in book clubs, while folding laundry, in the shower... oh wait. Anyway, you get the idea! So when we say "a lot", we truly mean it!

On the Blog, you'll see book reviews from the Book Radar team; and occasionally, a few hand-picked guest reviewers (that you can be sure have the same 'radar' as our own team). You'll get to know each of us; and I'm sure you'll start noticing our unique tastes and the books we gravitate towards.

In our reviews, we'll give you our own fun take on the read. If a content warning is needed, we'll jot that down too; or even point you to the report in our Library.
