Thank you

As of December 2016 we have shut down We are thrilled with the response to the site and we hope you found romance, or at least a good read.

We started in 2010 with the belief that books are a great conversation starter. We helped tens of thousands of people to interact over their shared interests. Perhaps you were one of them!

(We got some nice press over the years, too.)

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me (Matt Sherman) at my personal email or on Twitter.

Best of love,
Matt and Matt
