About Us

Launched in September 2014, The Booklist Reader provides a single home for the respected and well-established blogs Likely Stories, Book Group Buzz, Bookends, Audiobooker, and Shelf Renewal, all brought to you by Booklist Publications, a part of the American Library Association.

The Booklist Reader is not only a great resource for working librarians but appeals to fellow book lovers and recreational readers as well. Booklist editors and freelancers write about everything from adult books to kidlit, from print and ebooks to audio and video, from editors’ rants to author Q&As to lists, book news, and much more.

The Booklist Reader is free to all, and often links to content on Booklist Online, a paid database of over 170,000+ reviews and feature articles. To learn more about Booklist Publications, starting a subscription, or accessing our other free offerings, visit Booklist Online.
