Hello! I’m Cassie, one of the founding sisters of The Paperback Post. I’m a mommy, wife, teacher – and now blogger!
I created The Paperback Post because I love to read. Surprise! But I also love to talk about literature with people who love it just as much as I do. I’m not up for stuffy book clubs filled with women can’t contain their judgments to the book at hand, so I wanted to create an open-minded community of women who want to talk about books and our role within society while empowering and supporting one another through our differing viewpoints.
I’m also an aspiring writer! I know – it’s totally not cliche to meet a reader that also loves to write. I suspect there are many of us lurking around the shadows in disguise.
I’m excited to see this sisterhood grow! Happy reading ladies!

I’m Briana, the other founding member of The Paperback Post. I wear many hats, some of which include wife, mother to furbabies, advocate, sports enthusiast, perpetual student and an eternal lover of words, but above all I am a bibliophile. I started reading when I was five, and I refuse to ever stop learning, so that spilled over into writing, and here I am. I study justice administration, and I advocate for rape victims with the Dallas Area Rape Crisis Center, so you will see my influence sprinkled into my posts.
I hope everyone appreciates The Paperback Post as much as we do. Not only do we want to create a safe place for people to talk about the role and treatment of women without fear of judgement, but we want to help people. We are here for the LGBTQ population, for all people of all color, for all cultural backgrounds and my metaphorical door is always open. Don’t hesitate to talk to me if you are going through something. You can totally stay anonymous. There is too much suffering in the world, and I’ll be damned if I don’t do something about it.
Enjoy the blog, and remember, be mindful!
P.S. I’m also a Potterhead, so no matter what book I am reading, I am always reading Harry Potter.
