We believe in books - and the people who write them. Each month, we feature five can't-put-it-down books that our members might not otherwise discover. Think: new and diverse voices that you just can't get enough of. Why? Because emerging writers offer new perspectives, and a lot of fun.

Founded in 1926 and relaunched in 2015, the company is a startup brand with legacy vibes, located (among books) in NYC's Flatiron District. We embrace the innovative, the experimental, and even the so-crazy-it-might-work. Anything to get more people reading - and actually enjoying it.
