About Jessica Hammer

I'm a voracious, omnivorous reader who reads hundreds of books a year. Since 2007, I've been writing reviews of everything I read for fun. Now I'm looking to build a community of book-lovers who want to share my reading life on a regular basis.

If you back this project, you'll be supporting me in posting public book reviews. If you want to get a sense of what my reviews are like, you can check out a sample review, or search G+ for #readinglist2013 to get all my 2013 reviews.

As a reader, I try to enter into the spirit of whatever book I'm reading rather than setting myself up as a judge on high. I'll read nearly anything (mystery, mainstream litfic, fantasy, science fiction, erotica, thrillers, espionage, romance, you name it), and I try to cultivate a sense of taste that crosses genres. I review mostly fiction, since the bulk of my non-fiction reading is work-related rather than for fun.

Backing me will let me make my reviews accessible and searchable. If I hit my pledge goals, I'll also be able to do things like gather together the 1500+ reviews I wrote between 2007 and 2013 in a single place.

Most of all, though, I'm hoping you'll join my community of book-lovers. I'd really like the chance to write about books for you.
Goals
$21 of $25 per batch of reviews
If I raise this much, I'll start posting my reviews in a format that makes them more easily searchable, shareable, and accessible. Instead of batch-posting reviews on social media, I'll post individual reviews on a Wordpress site, then cross-post them to the places I'm already sharing. I'll also start tagging my reviews for better search.
