I fell in love with reading when my school librarian read to us every Wednesday in the Somerville Elementary School Library. From Hop on Pop to The Hardy Boys to Alfred Hitchcock’s The Three Investigators, I read and read and read. I fell in love with publishing when I did a college internship at Simon & Schuster in the late eighties. I’ve been reading books as a career ever since.
My favorites will always have a place of honor on my bookshelf. Here are twelve books that I would happily read again (and some I already have).
