We’re excited to announce the opening of our Official Coffee and a Good Book Forum! Join now for good friends and friendly conversation. 


On October 21, 2012 Melissa Yoder created the Facebook page Coffee and a Good Book. 

Shortly after that, she got a message from a fan, offering to help out. She said “hell no, I got this,” at first, but the next day, added Mellissa Tinsley as an admin. 

Melissa (May) and Mellissa (Mel) have been working together, day in and day out, for the last 5 years, talking books and coffee, and bringing all the book lovers of the world together.

The original Facebook page now has around 112,000 fans and is growing every day. 

From that page arose a separate Facebook group where members could share their love of books and reading on a more personal level.  That group, too, is growing rapidly, with more than 17,000 members and counting.

Coffee and a Good Book opened an Etsy shop in 2017, offering handmade goods including jewelry, bookmarks, bags, and wax melts, to the growing community of book and coffee lovers.  

May and Mel are excited to present Coffee and a Good Book’s very own website, which includes a brand new forum and a blog.

Get cozy, grab a cup of tea or coffee, and say hello!
