NewPages Book Reviews

We have been making some changes!
You can now find new book reviews at the NewPages Blog.
Stop by often for weekly updates of flash reviews covering magazines, books, and individual pieces of writing.

At 300 words max, these short reviews are fun to read and even more fun to write. We know you have a lot on your plate daily, so let us give you something a little more bite-sized to digest.
