About Book Nation by Jen
If you read everyday like me, or just want to pick up a good book when you have some vacation time, Book Nation by Jen is the place for you. I enjoy reading debut authors, hot, new women’s fiction novels right off the press, eyeopening memoirs, historical fiction where I am brought to another time and place, and non fiction where I can learn a thing or two. I read what appeals to me and then give you my two cents. Be a part of Book Nation, sign up for my blog and get an email whenever I upload a new review.

I have been a reader my whole life. I remember as a kid reading the Nancy Drew and The Little House on the Prairie series, Are You There God, It’s Me Margaret and Forever by Judy Blume, many Danielle Steele novels and then NY Times Bestsellers. For my 40th birthday I had a big dinner party and after the cake I surprised each guest with a wrapped present, a copy of a great book I read that year. Buying new books is always so much fun! This year I turn 50 and am feeling very lucky. Between Authors, Publishers and NetGalley sending me ARCs (Advanced Reading Copies), and the published books I obtain from bookstores and my local library, I have a lot of reading material piled up. I’m off to hit the books and will let you know what I recommend!
