We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

So, I've put this everywhere else (partially because I'm excited about having read so much, partly to gather suggestions). Just in case you haven't seen it, and want to suggest a book. I won't promise to read it, but I'll at least look at the description on amazon and consider it. Not to sound like a jerk ... but you know. Not everyone has the same interests.
