Reno is a very literary place, don’t let the beer crawls and casinos fool you. Whether you are a local or even a visitor to the Biggest Little City, check the list of local book blogs below for information on book titles you may even find yourself interested in reading. Consider it a digital book club!
This is local to Reno, Nevada by the lovely and talented Gabby McGregor. She has a goal to read 500 books, and you can follow her process on her blog, her Facebook page and Twitter page. She delves into a variety of books across different genres and she gives your her thoughts and input.

April Voytko Kempler is a local writer as well. She wrote the Altered I, which April wrote about her grandfather, a Holocaust survivor by the name of Joseph Kempler who lived in six different concentration camps. Her blog covers much more than just books, including Reno news and history. April is also part of the Book Hound radio show with Le Rue Press where they discuss books, writing and much more!
Local bookstore, Sundance Books, not only sells books in a beautiful historic building, but the store also has a book review section on their website. These reviews are written by Judith Rodby, Ph.D., Professor Emerita of English from CSU, Chico. Judith leads the monthly book club and she has led The National Reading Initiative for the National Writing Project. Check their website for her opinion, and the plus for this particular book blog is you can even go pick up the books from Sundance once you’ve read the reviews!
