Early Bird Books is dedicated to delivering stories about the books and authors that inspire us. Discover exclusive deals on bestsellers, author interviews, excerpts from exciting new novels, thematic reading lists, book club recommendations, and so much more.

Reading a book is fundamentally a personal experience. However, once you’ve reached the final page, a great book sets your mind on a path to further exploration and discovery.

And all journeys are better experienced with friends: Follow Early Bird Books on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, and sign up for our daily deals newsletter.

Comment Policy

Comments containing hate speech, personal attacks, and insults about other readers’ looks, intelligence, fandom of choice, etc., will be deleted. 

Although we value discussion and exchange of ideas, we will delete comments that play devil’s advocate at the expense of marginalized communities, or derail comment sections by arguing ideas that aren’t up for debate. Engaging in any of the above behaviors may get you banned. We also reserve the right to delete comments and ban users for miscellaneous poor conduct that falls outside those specific delete-able offenses. The Internet is people; please treat everyone you meet there as such.

Our Team

Kaytie Norman, Editor 

Kaytie joined Open Road Integrated Media in 2019 after spending three years writing and editing books for Media Lab Books. She already loved telling people which books are worth reading, so this job was a perfect match. Her hobbies include cooking, honing her Liz Lemon impression and encouraging people to read books like The Group by Mary McCarthy, The City and the Pillar by Gore Vidal, and Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

MacKenzie Stuart, Associate Editor

MacKenzie got her bachelor’s degree from Fordham University, where she worked on a campus political journal. She’s been writing and editing ever since. When she’s not working her way through an ever-growing list of psychological thrillers, she spends her free time binging true crime podcasts, haphazardly learning to cook, and running along the Hudson River.
