So you’re here on MN Reads and wondering what in the hell this is all about, right? Well, here’s the easy answer: we’re a bunch of Minnesota book nerds who write about the books we’re reading. While we might be called MN Reads, we don’t limit ourselves to just reading books by Minnesota authors. Minnesota has a vibrant and thriving literary community filled with fabulous writers, but there are just too many great books out there to limit ourselves to one area of geography. However, we do really love to talk about Minnesotans or writers visiting Minnesota whenever possible.
MN Reads is a real labor of love. Nobody is making any money at all. Occasionally, though, we get free books, which for a book nerds is the next best thing to money. If you’d like to write about the books you’re reading, contact us and we’ll tell you all about it!

I was the kind of girl who kept an obsessive list of statistics about her Sweet Valley High collection and would take great pride in being able to recite plot synopses for each one from memory. Really. Sadly, nobody ever asked me to recite them.
At some point Christa should write something about herself. In the meantime, I will just say that she’s one of the funniest writers on the planet. I would probably read her grocery lists, if she wrote them.
26-year-old lawyer-type with a weakness for books about art, dramatic turns of events, adjectives and romanticizing.
I’m an avid reader and librarian in the Twin Cities who loves to read almost everything but mysteries. If someone gets killed in the first chapter and a detective has to figure out who did it, that’s not for me. My recent favorite obsessions are post-apocalyptic and dystopian fiction. If you have any suggestions, shout them out.
