You might have noticed our new address: amazonbookreview.com. When we launched this modest blog with an immodest name in 2007, "omnivoracious" represented our intent to read widely and independently with one goal in mind: Connecting fellow readers with books they will love. That part hasn't changed, but we hope that our new url better represents that mission. We also think it's easier to spell.
You may see additional changes as we continue our transition, but you can still keep up by signing up for our free daily newsletter to receive our latest author interviews, best books of the month, reviews, and more. You can also follow us on your favorite social media channels:

Visit us often for new stories, or have the latest ABR articles delivered to your in-box via our daily digest email.
