I'm often asked if I read all the books I recommend. I would love to say YES!! In reality, although it would be incredible to read through everything in our store, it just isn't feasible. Partly because I relish watching a well-fought football game on a brisk fall afternoon; I enjoy an evening relaxing at the theatre or an orchestra concert; and I crave the opportunity to spend time with family. All of which take away from reading time.
In addition to my own reading, I rely on recommendations from customers, friends, fellow booksellers, my publisher reps, and other book reviewers. This is my daily list of what catches my eye, what I've enjoyed reading, what other folks have recommended, and what I really want to read, but haven't had the chance to yet.
