  •  How do I find out about a new book? Reviews. (2+ / 0-)

    Display ads leave me cold. But I'm eager to read the book news in the dailies and in magazines. I listen to reviews on the radio and watch author interviews on teevee. And if I find something interesting, I search the title on Amazon and read some more.

    Before I posted here, I went to powells.com to see if I could find you a link on sending books for staff review. Didn't find what I was looking for but it might still be worth contacting the store to find out their policy.

    Portland is an exceptionally literate town and Powell's is a mighty force for generating buzz about a book and its author.

    Their collection of poetry and literary magazines is so good that searchers looking for the new, the old, or the obscure will find a fuller inventory here than most anywhere.

    Heck, if you can get Franco interested, or Blevins, Powell's does an exceptional job hosting book signings, which are insanely popular here in Bridgetown.

    All best wishes!
