About First 750

Hello and welcome to First 750 is a web site for readers and writers.


For readers, this is a site to browse, by category or just randomly, and look for your next great read. Eventually, you will also find author interviews here.

Please post comments on books you think are great and on books you think suck. I just ask that you keep it as objective and non-offensive as possible.


For writers, this is a place to list your published work. I’m assuming you have a facebook page, a blog, etc. This site will allow people to read your synopsis and a small sample of your book. If they like what they read, they can then visit your site for a larger sample or to purchase the book.

If you would like to have your book listed at First 750, please use the Submit a Book link.
