Clear Eyes, Full Shelves is a blog for readers with smarts and sass.

On Clear Eyes, Full Shelves, we review books—both new releases and backlist titles, chat about our love of genre fiction, evangelize about our favorite books and authors and share our opinions about readerly issues. As of March 2013, we also produce a podcast featuring in-depth discussion of books and reader issues, and the occasional non-reading topic such as movies and television or feminism and popular culture.
