Read, read, read.

Welcome. Yes, it’s me, Yet Another Journalist With a Substack Newsletter. But mine aims to drive you out of your inbox and into dead tree matter!

I’ve written about books for The Paris Review, NPR, Salon, Kirkus, Fortune, Sports Illustrated, The Daily Beast, Lit Hub, Air Mail, The Morning News, The Millions, The Rumpus, Berfrois, &more.

Reading books is my great pleasure, and I want to tell you about the books I’ve liked, especially books you may not have heard about.

That’s all. This newsletter isn’t about self-promotion, or hot takes, or sports talk, or crypto, or product plugs. It’s about reading books.

On Twitter, I’m @readDanwrite. On Instagram, I’m @dannyrobs. Here, I’m just your friendly literary recommendation engine. Please subscribe and enjoy.
