At 5 Minutes for Books, it’s our goal to build a community of people who love books and reading.
Maybe in this season of life, you’ve given up the luxury of curling up with a good book while you focus on raising a family of readers.
Maybe you have recently rediscovered your childhood love of reading and make sure to squeeze in a little page time every day.
Maybe you are always on the hunt for a new book to add to your to-be-read list.
Maybe you’re an information junkie and will read anything you can get your hands on regarding parenting, marriage, or women’s health.
Maybe you’re looking for great recommendations (kid-tested and parent-approved) for your children or grandchildren or nieces and nephews.
5 Minutes for Books is all about turning these maybes into action!
Join us each week as we bring you:
- Book reviews for all ages–babies to adults–fiction and non-fiction
- Books on Screen
- Thoughts “On Reading”
- “What’s on Your Nightstand?” monthly carnival
- And perhaps a book club or two
At 5 Minutes for Books, we’re reading into everything, and we hope you’ll join us.
You might wonder where we get the books we review. It varies, but the majority of books are received from publishers, PR agencies or authors. Does this affect our honesty in reviewing a book? No. We do only publish reviews of books we feel we can recommend. We don’t generally publish negative reviews, so if we read it, but didn’t like it, you won’t see a review.
