Welcome to BookNotes and FootMarks, a literary journal/pop-culture and current events blog hybrid featuring essays, criticism, and cultural commentary.
In September 2013, a group of grad students met in Edinburgh and bonded over loving and hating books, essays, movies, food, traveling, and life in general. But our year together was far too short. When we left the City of Literature to squeeze back into our old lives all over the world, we missed the community we had. So we created this space to share new things and thoughts as if we were back in our local pub—no matter where we all might live now. We hope that you enjoy our thoughts and join the discussion!
Happy Reading, Happy Writing, and Happy Sharing,
BookNotes and FootMarks
