Off the Beaten Shelf is a book blog for the reader who likes a sampler plate. This blog is for the reader who knows that when you read more, you live more.
Hello there. I'm Mandy Shunnarah, a writer based in Columbus, OH. I'm the human behind the blog.
If you enjoy discussions of book nerd culture, book reviews, musings on writing, and commentary on the book world, welcome! I chronicle my adventures in reading and the multitude of ways reading has enlightened my life. I don't shy away from the tough subjects and I tell it like it is.
