Discussions with Books Are My Fandom

discussions 1 more heartsWe love talking with you guys about books here at BAMF but some times we need to go a little further than just reviewing books and interviewing authors. Thus, Discussion Posts! We may give you some advice, tell you about something you may not know, and generally talk about the bookish world as a whole. The idea is to generate conversation around a topic so that you can think critically about it — or just think about it in general! Be sure to comment with your thoughts!

If there is a topic you want to see one of us discuss, email us at hello@booksaremyfandom.com with the subject line “Discussion Idea!” and we will credit you!
