Inaugural Post

I am completely blaming Elle J. Rossi for this blog! She planted the seed in my brain and it grew until I could no longer ignore it. So, with the dawn of a new year, I am launching the Just a Reader blog.

As stated on the About page, this will be mostly book reviews with occasional posts about publishing industry and book business news items. If there is interest, I will also have guest posts and interviews with authors and other folks in the book world.

I can unequivocally say it will NOT get updated every day but my hope is to update the blog with new posts at least three times a week.

Please bear with me as I attempt to work out the kinks of starting a new blog and let me know if you see anything wrong, out of place, or in anyway off on the site.

Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy the future posts here at Just a Reader!


  1. I'm just seeing this and I LOVE that you started this blog. It's perfect. PERFECT! I'm adding the site to my favorites and will be a regular. Maybe one day a month we could do reader's recs or something like that. People list a book they love and why it is a must read. What do you think, Melly Mel?

  2. Thanks, Elle! I'm having a lot of fun with this so far even though I'm sort of blindly finding my way. I'm hoping that anyone who reads this will give me suggestions on what they'd like to see, changes I should make, etc.

    The reader recommendations is a great idea! Not entirely sure how to organize that but I'll definitely try it.

    Thanks for putting the idea in my head and for your support!
