STACKED, on the surface, is interested in reviewing books for readers while simultaneously enticing non-readers to think about reading in fun and interesting ways. That means we're not just about reviewing books; we're interested in providing reader advisory, reading adventures, interviews with writers, publishers, and other bloggers, round robin reviews, and exploring more aesthetically-driven aspects of reading, including cover reviews, bookish websites, blog roundups, and interesting digital libraries. As librarians, we are aware that literacy comes in many formats, so we strive to include not just physical book reviews, but also reviews of audio books, digital books, videos, music, zines, graphic novels, and other materials easily found in the stacks.
STACKED welcomes your input and accepts material for review. Since the writers are spread throughout the country, we reserve the right to determine who is best suited to review your material or we may choose to each review it round robin style. We are honest in our reviews, but we are hyper aware of the five laws of Ranganathan. We believe that nearly all materials has an audience, and it is our goal to help identify that audience.We love your feedback and comments, so feel free to get in touch either through commenting on the blog or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
