About the Booksluts

A brief history of the Insatiable Booksluts

Rob and Susie met in the year 2000 in a chatroom dedicated to hoity-toity snobby booklust.  Being two of the only sane people in the room, they became friends almost immediately.  Even though the chatroom imploded due to internet drama, the booksluts remained friends and started a moderately successful online book club in March of 2007. Wanting to share the same experience with even more book lovers, the booksluts decided to start a new venture together:  this very blog.

In 2012, nearly a year after our inception, IB won the first (and so far, only? I think?) Independent Book Blogger Award for adult fiction. It is a real award given by the people at Goodreads and the Association of American Publishers; Susie has the huge glass, uh, thingy to prove it.

That is how our little corner of the internet came to be. We hope you enjoy reading this blog as much as we enjoy reading for and writing it.
