Editorial Review

"Back in the heady middle days of book blogging, I stumbled across a site like no other: Seen Reading. My trade was in the interesting and unique, and this certainly was both. With Seen Reading, Julie Wilson has done something revolutionary for the time: seamlessly combine books-related gossip, arts reportage, and creative writing in every post. The results are exhilarating and deliciously voyeuristic."--George Murray, Bookninja.com

"Beneath the surface of Julie Wilson's energy, biting wit and quirkiness lays intelligence and insight--a fresh observer to the dynamic ways in which we communicate."--Anthony de Sa

"I spy with my little eye, something that is utterly delightful. Take a peek at Julie Wilson's Seen Reading. There are treasures to be found within."--Ami McKay

"Seen Reading is a whimsical, charming and thought-provoking book best read in public." - The Telegraph-Journal
