Hi! I'm Tim Ehrenberg and I live on Nantucket Island in Massachusetts.  I have loved books before I could even talk.  This is me on a Christmas morning at 5 years old super excited about my shark book. I get just as excited about new books today!

I started "Tim Talks Books" to share that enthusiasm for my favorite reads and as a way to connect with my favorite authors and book people.


I am the President of the Nantucket Book Foundation, a nonprofit that presents the Nantucket Book Festival every June, and Marketing and Events Director for Nantucket Book Partners, Nantucket's two independent bookstores. I co-host the literary podcast Books, Beach, & Beyond with #1 Best-selling author and "Queen of the Beach Reads" Elin Hilderbrand. I also handle the marketing for the Nantucket Book Festival and I'm a contributor to N, Nantucket's lifestyle magazine, where I write a monthly "Need to Read" column of book picks.


Some of my favorite books are Far from the Tree by Andrew Solomon, The Heart's Invisible Furies by John Boyne, I Know This Much is True by Wally Lamb, 11/22/63 by Stephen King, The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon, Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow by Gabrielle Zevin, and A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara. Auto-read authors for me are Jodi Picoult, Stephen King, Ann Patchett, Wally Lamb, Agatha Christie, Anthony Horowitz, Louise Penny, Elizabeth George, Rebecca Makkai, Geraldine Brooks, Donna Tartt, and so many more. .

I love a good whodunnit mystery and have a soft spot for books with time travel in them. I was a history major in college, so I am particularly fascinated with any books and novels about the Kennedy assassination, Titanic, and 9/11. I like big books, (and I cannot lie). Seriously, though, I love a long book with hundreds and hundreds of pages to get lost in. I am a Harry Potter nut, love a beach read from Elin Hilderbrand, and I could read Agatha Christie books over and over.


I love bookstores and they are definitely my happy place.


Thank you for checking out my site with my podcast link and past author conversations! Make sure to follow me on instagram @timtalksbooks!


Happy Reading!

~ Tim
