Read Local, L.L.C., is a community of book lovers. We review books published by independent/university/small presses and post our reviews and thoughts in an effort to raise awareness of small-press books. We have a relationship with Stoneman House Press, L.L.C., and that publisher's work appears on this website (we make money when Stoneman House sells books). We also have relationships with some of the authors whose books appear here. Some (like Sage Webb) write reviews for us and help lead us (and they make money when their books sell). We note when we have a relationship with a book, publisher, or author. Otherwise, we do not have relationships with the authors and publishers listed here. They appear here only because we liked their books . . . and we like reviewing books. If you are an author or publisher of a book that appears here, feel free to reach out to us! We'd love to hear from you. We are at And if you are an author or publisher and you would like us to remove your book from our site, just let us know. We are here to serve the literary community.

(We also love innovative art and photography. Just sayin'.)
