There are so many fantastic authors and great books out there that sometimes it’s hard to know where to begin. Start Here solves that problem; it tells you how to read your way into 25 amazing authors from a wide range of genres–from classics to contemporary fiction to comics.

Each chapter presents an author, explains why you might want to try them, and lays out a 3- or 4-book reading sequence designed to help you experience fully what they have to offer. It’s a fun, accessible, and informative way to enrich your reading life.

It’s available as an ebook in the usual places: AmazonBarnes and Noble, the iBookstore, and if they’re signed up with Kobo, your local independent bookstore. And it’s just three bucks! (in the US at least.)
