In the Beginning… Welcome to carp(e) libris

Welcome to carp(e) libris, the blog dedicated to small presses, independent booksellers, and the readers who love them.

On carp(e) libris, I’ll be reviewing books published by small presses. I’ll also do postings featuring independent booksellers across the U.S. and even around the globe.

If you’re a reader looking for unique literary fiction, literary nonfiction, memoir, travel and more, this is the place to be! I’ll be doing some serious digging, reading, and reviewing to bring you fantastic books you won’t find in the checkout line at your grocery store or displayed in the airport shops. Small presses fill a void not covered by the larger publishers, and believe me, there are some real treasures waiting for us to discover. I’ll also host book giveaways as publishers permit, and there’s nothing better than a free book!

If you’re a small press who publishes in these genres and you’d like your book reviewed, you can email me at themommyspot (at) gmail (dot) com. And if you’re an independent bookseller anywhere in the world and you’d like to be featured on carp(e) libris, please do email me as well.
