Profile Information

Reading Preference:
I spend a lot of time reading children's books, as that is my business, but I can't blame it all on work. A good book is a good book, regardless. I enjoy books that give me a fresh perspective, make me care about the characters, or just yank me out of my everyday life. I am not a huge fan of fantasy, but if the writing is strong and I care about the characters, I can be won over. I read mostly fiction. The non-fiction I read tends to be business oriented or personal essays or memoir. In the store we stock books that will have lasting appeal--classics and future classics.
Favorites:

Wordless Picture Books

I have been extremely happy to help a couple of different customers in the last few weeks who have come in to the bookshop specifically looking for wordless picture books. Why so happy? Because over the last eight years I have generally found that wordless picture books, no matter how visually stunning, hilarious or touching or award-winning, can be a really tough sell.

And that's a shame.

Now, I should be quick to point out that there is no lack of interest in these books on…
