I have always loved reading. I have always loved the way a book feels in my hands: the weight of it; the paper between my fingers; the words on the page that will slowly reveal the story to me. Choosing to make that story last as long as possible and letting the story take me to another place, educate me, and lift me up. It’s no wonder I became a bookseller working at an independent bookstore. I have enjoyed every day spent at the store, talking books with my amazing coworkers, and sharing my love of books with every wonderful customer. Now, I would love to share a list of some of my favorite books with you.
