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.
I am the Events Coordinator at Dragonfly Books. While I'm not using my organizing superpowers for author wrangling, you'll find me playing with my kids or buried in a novel. Science fiction, fantasy, young adult, general fiction -- I love heroes and heroines in whatever form (or world) they take.
When I was a child, I read books. I had them stashed all around the house in case of a reading emergency, perfected the art of reading while walking, and even spent an entire Minnesota Twins game reading The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe. I preferred magical lands to middle school and reading to sleep - and some things never change. I live amongst stacks of books on every surface, to the point that when we first started dating, my husband asked if I knew that I had an abnormal amount of reading material.
Odin-Thor is widely regarded as the handsomest and most revered staffmember at Dragonfly Books. Adventurer, Viking, Teddy Bear, and Master Storyteller: there’s nothing Odin-Thor can’t do!
