BRIO Launches Book Review Series.

Every Tuesday BRIO releases book reviews of current New York Times Bestsellers

MINNEAPOLIS -- BRIO believes in the power of reading and its power to take a person to another world. Whether it is on a magic carpet ride with Aladdin, solving a mystery with Nancy Drew, or going on a quest with Harry Potter, everyone loves to be entertained with a story. As a result, the contract publisher is expanding the content on its web site. Last Tuesday, the publisher began posting book reviews of popular publications.

The goal of the Review Series is to review popular fiction as well as to increase awareness of lesser known authors. Currently, BRIO is responding to the Twilight craze by reviewing all three books by Stephenie Meyer. Then in August, BRIO will review the much anticipated Breaking Dawn. After reviewing the Twilight series, we plan to review BRIO client publications such as Can God See Me in the Dark? (Maple Corners Press) by Neal Lozano and Raising Brandon (Mountain Star Publishing) by Amalia Starr.

"We hope to increase readership with this review series," said Owner John Marino. "In this world of MP3 players, 24-hour cable, and text messaging, the simple process of reading a book gets lost in the technological jungle. We need to bring back the importance of reading at all ages."

This is important to BRIO because their home base is Minneapolis and according to a 2007 literary poll, Minneapolis ranks as the most literate city in the United States. "This is a city that cares about literature and about books," said Marino. "It is very important to review quality literature because individuals in this city are very in tune to the bestsellers as well as to great small press books."

So grab your magic carpet and come along with BRIO for the ride of a lifetime.

Log on to for the next BRIO Review.
