Through deals, we hope to bring eyeballs. With eyeballs, we hope to provide stimulating titles that appeal to your interests. We hope to showcase publishers who are publishing great books, and also feature them so you know which publishers are creating the books you enjoy. In addition to identifying price reductions for you, we want to bring value to this process. We’ll take a personal approach. As a reader, ask us questions, and help us understand the content you enjoy. We’re also pursuing guest bloggers, so there’s variation in this voice. We’ll publish reviews, award information, great sites, opinions on publishing news, and other special blog posts. We’ll attempt to diversify the content, so this blog remains fresh and compelling.
