    Book Riot
    Brooklyn, New York

    Book Riot is dedicated to the idea that writing about books and reading should be just as diverse as books and readers are. So sometimes we are serious and sometimes silly. Some of our writers are pros. Many of them aren’t. We like a good list just as much as we like a good review. We think you can like both J.K. Rowling and J.M. Coetzee and that there are smart, funny, and informative things to say about both and that you shouldn’t have to choose.

    And the only thing we like as much as books is talking about books with other readers. So welcome to Book Riot (http://bookriot.com) — you seem like our kind of people.
