Scroll less. Read more books.

Welcome to Books With Laurie!

You can find out more about it (and also about me, your friendly bookworm) here.

I'm that person -- the one who always has some book they're rambling on about and insisting you must read.  (I'm also the one you call for a recommendation, and the one whose bookshelves you raid for a summer read, or an herbal guidebook, or a weird autobiography, or a volume of leftist history, or a film theory book...)

I'm Laurie Allee, Bookworm in Residence

This blog is my bookish dream world, and I invite you to share it with me.  

I will regularly post new articles and videos on all kinds of readerly things.  Don't worry, you don't have to hit any like buttons or subscribe to anything.  I'm connecting with fellow bookworms, not building a brand.  I'm just a reader (and a writer!) who encourages you to put your phone down, venture away from the social media hive, and get lost in a good book.  Let's look at words that don't blink or flash.

Let's scroll less and read more books.

I'm building a community of fellow reading nerds, so be sure to get in touch if you'd like to be part of my upcoming old-fashioned book club.

You'll find hundreds of book lover resources and links, as well as all kinds of Easter eggs for bookworms hidden throughout the site, so click around and explore. (Hint, no image is ever just an image.)

If I could have a real bookstore, it would look a lot like Books With Laurie.  Enjoy my little oasis away from multitasking, Twitter arguments, selfies, hashtags and memes.  Find great books on all kinds of subjects, explore some of the world's coolest libraries and bookstores, watch interviews with authors and indie book shop owners and book lovers of all sorts, snag deals on books and get other reader freebies, and discover how great it is to reconnect with one of the oldest forms of media.

This is a good place to start.
(When you're finished, head to my place next door.)
