“The reading you save may be your own”

I make no secret that I am biased in favor of independent bookstores; in my experience, indie booksellers often put the “emerge” into “emerging writers.”  On the blog for Porter Square Books in Cambridge, MA, author Leslie Brunetta makes the case for supporting your local indie bookstore and the readings they host.

One of the many services the Network offers its members is the weekly ‘Member Readings’ e-blast, letting thousands of people across the state know when and where Network writers will read from their work, and giving us no excuse for not supporting our fellow writers and Network members whenever we can.

On a more playful note, Flavorwire offers “Literary Games for Bored Book Nerds.”   Y’all have fun.


  1. Absolutely. As the newly minted executive editor for an indie publishing house, I’m all for supporting the local bookstore and our local writers. We have a great one here in Beaufort…Rocking Chair Bookstore.

    I hear writers complain when few fellow writers come to hear them read, but the same writers who complain seem to feel no responsibility when their fellow writers are reading.
    Still, the writers should promote their readings, and learn how to give a good reading. That requires some effort.
