Buzzed About Books


We’re excited to launch our newest ongoing online event, Buzzed About Books. Think of it as a virtual book review show, where you tell us about two of your favorite books while enjoying your favorite beverage (coffee, tea, milk, wine, whatever.)

Our first set of videos will be posted on Sunday, June 28th.

One book could be an old book, perhaps a favorite classic, or something published just a few years ago; the other book can be a new publication—something that you recently read and would enjoy sharing with others looking for new book recommendations.


1. Please send us a video (shot HORIZONTALLY) and tell us about your two books while enjoying your favorite beverage.

2. Send your video clip to:, or send us a YouTube or Vimeo link.

If you have any questions, please email Allison at:
