    Hi there,

    I’m the blog editor for the new online book review the Los Angeles Review of Books. I also work at Skylight Books in Los Feliz where we’re featuring Rebel Bookseller (and where I’m in the midst of launching a new – and hopefully improved – book store membership program)

    At any rate, I want to feature Rebel Bookseller at the LA Review of Books as well. Please reach out to me if you’re interested and I can propose some ideas…

    Many thanks,
