From Left to Write takes the book club online where our community of bloggers create a virtual discussion of a book and how it relates to their lives and in turn, everyone’s lives.

Founded in 2010, From Left to Write is owned and managed by Thien-Kim Lam.

From Left to Write holds monthly online book clubs, featuring a range of topics and writing styles. Our bloggers do not write traditional book reviews, but instead draw upon themes or characters from the books and share how they are connected to the bloggers’ personal experiences. The authors join in on the discussion as well, to give their perspectives on the various posts. We invite you to buy the books, read along with us and add your voice to the discussion. Happy reading!

For more information about our book club sponsorship packages or virtual book tour packages to feature your book, please email us at editor@fromlefttowrite.com . Note that we usually schedule our selections 2-3 months in advance.

Her piles of to be read books grow faster than she can read, but she continues to “collect” books. Her guilty pleasure is soaking in a steamy bubble bath while reading trashing magazines.

A reader of many genres, she consumes the following with a passion, in no particular order: literary fiction, science fiction, fantasy, mysteries, historical fiction, and women’s literature. You can connect with Thien-Kim on GoodReads to see what’s currently con her nightstand.

She has spoken at various conferences including Evo Conference about creating and nurturing an online community, 3AF Asian Marketing Summit about the influence of Asian parenting bloggers, and  Mom 2.0 Summit 2011 about finding your multicultural community online through social media. She has also spoken at Blogalicious and BlogHer.
