Tune into the latest episode of our podcast to hear Andy Weir, author of THE MARTIAN talk about his amazing lead character and read a passage from the book: 
It's no secret: Read It Forward has Oscar fever! But since so many of this year's nominated films originated as books, you can't really blame us! Did you know that The Revenant, Room, Brooklyn, The Big Short, The Danish Girl, Bridge of Spies, Carol and Steve Jobs all originated as books? (Well, of course you did, because you're lit lovers like us!) To celebrate all things Oscar, we invited Andy Weir to be this month's guest on Read It Forward'...

An exploration of the epistolary novel:
The epistolary novel, even the very term, smacks of anachronistic formality—one might expect characters to “call upon” one another in such stories. But the letter form offers fiction writers all kinds of fascinating angles through which to not only observe characters but to present them. If I begin reading a novel and the first thing I come across is a salutation, I immediately have to figure out: who wrote the letter? To whom are they writing? W...

Make 2016 count!
The new year is a time of boundless optimism: the clock strikes twelve, the calendar rolls over, and a clean slate stretches out before you. At first our enthusiasm makes our resolutions seem easy!

If you're anything like us, now is the time you're looking to bolster your resolutions and turn them into new habits. That's why we're s...

We’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite places to open a good book.
We’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite places to open a good book. It is a truth universally acknowledged that a person in possession of a good book must be in want of a place to read. And in the immortal words of Hollywood, sometimes it really is all about location, location, location. Because while we readers may love reading no matter where we are, there are still certain spaces that are conducive to good reading, and they’re differe...

See if your literary crush made the list:
I’ll admit it—some of my first crushes were on characters from books. Passionate and patriotic Johnny Tremain, forever-seventeen-year-old Jesse Tuck from Tuck Everlasting and animal lover Travis Coates from Old Yeller all made my young heart skip a beat. And apparently, I’m not alone. Read It Forward asked book lovers what fictional character from literature they would most want as their valentine and the response was overwhelming. Read on for...

Secrets behind page-turners:
Peter Clines, author of the science fiction graphic novel series Ex-Heroes, reveals his secrets for writing the perfect cliffhanger. I love a good cliffhanger. One of those moments when you leave the audience dangling with nothing but their own guesses to explain what happens next. I like writing them, reading them, and watching them. A well-done one is wonderful on a bunch of levels. As my own writing style’s developed, I’ve kind of become...
