Hi, I'm Mark, and I am a book geek. I read a lot. When I'm not reading, I'm usually reading to my kids. While they sleep, I type. Want to talk about books? Me too.
I've been writing about books for 15 years. My articles and reviews of literature have been published in a variety of newspapers and magazines, and I've served as an editorial staff member for multiple online properties and been a contributor of book reviews and author interviews for Kirkus Reviews.
I attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, earning an English degree with the idea of writing the Great American Novel. Then along came the Internet, and my attentions turned to writing the Great American Content. This is an ongoing project.
By Mark Flanagan:
There are a lot of great literary resources on the internet. I hope this site will serve as a portal to the best of newly-released literature. With that in mind, we (I and a number of contributors around the U.S.) endeavor to read and review those works that grab our attention as compelling, fascinating, and unique -- rather than merely popular.
