Read Local: We're Always Reading In Philadelphia

Well the summer's over.  I wanted to take a moment to thank all of you for reading along and supporting local writers, especially in this lousy economy.  Over the past few weeks, I've received some feedback  about Philly Word of Mouth's Read Local that I want to share it with you.
There so much great talent in Philly - both writers and lawyers.   I know now that if I'd worked at Cozen O'Connor, I'd be a Pulitzer Prize winner. --John Grisham

Philly Word of Mouth is the absolute best.   This summer's Read Local reading list was 50% women.  That's 12% more representation than the New York Times.--Jodi Picoult

Amen, Sister! --Jennifer Weiner

Philly's Lit Scene rocks.  Brooklyn sucks.  We're moving.  What's the admission's number at The Philadelphia School? --Nicole Krauss and Jonathan Safran Foer

This summer's Read Local program was a boon to the local economy. Who knew!  When you buy local writers' books, they spend like they've never had money before.  The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board alone reported a 10% increase in revenue.
  --Mayor Michael Nutter

Even the undead read in Philly.  What a great town!  --Stephanie Meyer
Keep reading and sending your comments.  Remember the fall is the perfect time to catch up on your summer reading. 

Read Local!
