The Blog and the Blogger
My name is David Hebblethwaite, and I’m a reader and book blogger from Yorkshire, now resident in the south of England. This blog is meant to be a space where I try to capture my ongoing experiences of reading, and work out why I respond to particular books in the way I do.
The books I most like to read tend to fall into four broad areas:
- World literature and books in translation
- Fiction that ‘breaks the mould’ of the novel (after the Goldsmiths Prize)
- Books from small publishers
If you’d like to contact me, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’m happy to accept review copies – if you have a book that fits into one (or more!) of the areas above, feel free to get in touch. However, please note that I run this blog in my spare time, on top of a full time job. I try to be timely, but I can’t guarantee when, or at what length, I’ll cover a particular book. If that is fine with you, go ahead and drop me a line.
This blog is affiliated with Foyles, because I like what they stand for as booksellers. If you click on an affiliate link on this site, I will earn a (very) small amount of commission, all of which will go back into running the blog.
