The invention of writer and producer Stephanie Kent and filmmaker and TED-Ed founder Logan Smalley, the Call Me Ishmael project is a voice mail service in which book lovers can call and leave a message for Ishmael about their favorite book, bookstore, or book-related memory. Readers can also call in to hear messages left by other readers, so The Call Me Ishmael Phone Book is an actual directory, styled like a classic phone book and full of listings and punning "ads" that take readers to messages about particular books and places. Find the best bookstores in your state, hear recommendations for great books to find, and read a few transcribed messages—then leave a message of your own to become part of the project.
