ABOUT DEAR READER

In 1999, Suzanne Beecher discovered a way to get people back in the habit of reading books. “I’ve always encouraged my staff to read, so you can imagine my reaction when one of my employees, a stay-at-home mom, told me, ‘Suzanne, I cook, I clean, I take care of my kids, my husband and I work part-time for you. I can’t find the time to shave my legs and you want me to read a book.'”

What others say about us

“I just wanted you to know how much we like the NewBookAlerts service. The staff thinks it is terrific! One of our staff noticed that titles she added in the morning, showed in BookAlerts a few hours later”
