How do you know where to start reading a new author? The Book Riot team hopes to raise $25,000 on Kickstarter for a new book that will help you answer that question. We’ve embedded a video about Start Here above–what do you think?
Here’s more about the project: “[Start Here] tells you how to read your way into 25 amazing authors from a wide range of genres–children’s books to classics, contemporary fiction to graphic novels. Each chapter presents an author, explains why you might want to try them, and lays out a 3-4 book reading sequence designed to help you experience fully what they have to offer. It’s a fun, accessible, informative way to enrich your reading life.”
Start Here will be available in both print and eBook formats. Book Riot has assembled a team of writers, critics, and bloggers to write the essays. The final book will definitely feature guides to the works of Toni Morrison, David Foster Wallace, Margaret Atwood, Charles Dickens, William Faulkner, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, and Philip Roth.
