Reviews

One of Smithsonian's "Ten New Travel Books to Read When You're Stuck at Home"

"A reference guide that is deserving of a spot on the bookshelf of any bookworm."
-- Smithsonian

"A chatty guide to literary tourism in the city, but it has surprising depth...While Read Me is a light romp, it has the potential to open new doors to familiar territory."
-- Alta magazine
