Reading Country, It’s All in the Name

The domain is “readingcountry.com.” The site proclaims: “This is Reading Country!” But what’s in a name? Here’s what:

Reading “Country” means reading stories about people who live “rural,” that is, people who grew up on or moved to the land–farmers, loggers, ranchers, homesteaders, plains folk, mountain men and women, even plantation owners–stories about them and their families–their sons and daughters, grand kids and great grand kids. Of course, reading “country” can also be about people who, having grown up “country,” wind up having to try to make their way “in the city.” And “Reading Country” is a place where you can find these novels, books, and stories.
