Broke By Books (BBB) was founded by Sarah S. Davis in November, 2014 to host a reading diary for a school project. Since that time the blog has grown beyond reviews to include resourceful articles about books that enlighten and entertain.
Vision Statement for Broke By Books
Broke By Books (BBB) is a destination blog where there is something for everyone because it marries literary criticism and genre criticism while also combining useful information about blogging, productivity, freelance writing, and monetization. Without spreading itself too thin, BBB has a focused approach to coverage of books and authors, both classic and contemporary. BBB stands for substantive literary analysis across the genres, reader’s advisory, book discovery, and a community-centered approach. Along the way, BBB seeks to offer tips and valuable, actionable information on productivity, monetization, and content strategy to beginning book bloggers and those searching to get started in writing about books as freelance professionals. Always fresh, hopefully (!) never boring, BBB strives to be as relevant as book criticism of the past yet as dynamic and revolutionary as the changing and engaging literary dialogues of the future.

BBB will accomplish its goals through consistency, relevancy, and resourcefulness. BBB will consistently post relevant content with the steeled resolve needed to navigate genre wars and unite the fan of serious literary criticism with the fan of listicles. Regular columns combined with longreads and special features distinguish BBB as a destination for aspiring book bloggers, writers, and readers who just want a more vivid and realized relationship to books.
