Writing inconsistently and with wild abandon about books since 2005, Baby Got Books is a loose confederation of book nerds literary bloggers. We started out as a group of friends looking for a new way to share books and bookish news with one another. Years later, we’re very excited to have made so many new friends who share our love of books.
(The preferred version of our unofficial theme song can be found here.)
Tim is the ringleader, web guy, editor, and czar of Baby Got Books (BGB). He is also a member of the National Book Critics Circle. Tim lives in Atlanta, GA. You can be pals with Tim at these fine social networking sites:
Shaft is a regular contributor to BGB, as well as our chief legal strategist, poker correspondent, and drummer. Shaft also lives in Atlanta, GA.
Dr J contributes from Deep in the Heart of Texas (clap, clap, clap, clap). Dr J is our Chief Historian and Director of Spelling.
Jen writes about Young Adult, Fantasy/Sci-Fi, and kids’ books from Atlanta, GA.
Nitro Nicole contributes to BGB from New England. She keeps us posted on the happenings in Manhattan.
Anne enjoys multi-cultural/historical books and if there’s a dysfunctional family involved even better! She lives in Atlanta.
Russ Marshalek works in book marketing, events, and publicity. Rather than causing him to lose integrity, though, this actually tends to make him super-jaded towards every book he picks up. He either loves books everyone else did (see: Special Topics In Calamity Physics), or goes up to authors in the street to tell them how much their Pulitzer-winning novels stunk (The Brief and Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao). Russ reads literary fiction, graphic novels, and books about gross foods that he’d never eat in real life.
If you are an overeducated (or at least a semi-overeducated) youngish person with a sleep disorder and a surfeit of opinions, the thing to do, after all, is to start a blog. – A.O. Scott
