We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

I've been thinking about starting a zine for bibliophiles. (perhaps even just calling it "bibliophile") The idea is to have any bibliophiles submit items about their biblipohileness. Perhaps a story about spending your last $5 on books, or a poem about the book you are reading. Anything that goes with the love of collecting and reading books.

Would anyone else be interested in this? Any possible submissions? Anyone who'd want to read it?

I would definitely be interested in submitting and reading :)
sounds interesting. I'd like to read it (:
I think it would make a great zine and already have an article idea in mind. Book reviews would also be a good inclusion.
This sounds like an awesome idea! The only potential problem I see is that it could add more books on to my already very long need-to-read list :)
My thoughts were that any bibliophile already has a reading list a mile long, so I was thinking things ABOUT reading and loving books, not really reviews and things to read more books. Does that make any sense?

Things like quotes about books, poems/articles about the love of reading and collecting books, stories about the quest for a certain book or the story behind our favorite book (how it came into our possession, the feelings it evokes in us, etc, not really the story line of the book)

To share a love of books, not to share more ideas of books to read. But I suppose the customer is always right, ;) if people want book reviews then it changes what i intended for the zine but it could be done. :)
I like the idea of this. I think you should definitely keep the book reviews to a minimum/none at all and focus on essays/stories/articles about books. I would love to submit to this. email me if you decide to take submissions: derekneuland@gmail.com
You make a good point about reviews, I think your logic makes perfect sense. I really hope you go with this idea, I would love to read it! And, like I said above, contribute to it.
i agree, this bookwork here already has a whole lot of books in the 'To-Be Read List' haha!
i'd be very interested in reading the finished zine & also contribute with some writing. if you decide to go forward with this project, email me: zineproject2009 AT gmail DOT com
