Job Title: eCommerce Marketing
Favorite book when you were a child: The Poky Little Puppy - I am pretty sure I made my parents read this to me every night for at least a year.
Your top five authors: Christopher Moore, Pat Conroy, Geraldine Brooks, Jim Butcher, Jasper Fforde
Book you are an evangelist for:  There are a few that I have made all of my friends read: World War Z by Max Brooks, The Night Angel Trilogy by Brent Weeks, and The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss.  Ok, there are more than that, but I was only supposed to name one...
Book you've bought for the cover: I've repurchased a lot of classics and other favorites in hardcover for my bookshelves because they look much prettier than the ratty editions I read originally.
Book that changed your life: 1984 by George Orwell.   I read it at just the right age to begin to question the world around me and to think for myself and look deeper.
Book you most want to read again for the first time: His Dark Materials Trilogy by Philip Pullman.  I was so wrapped up in that story and fell in love with the characters.  I was so sad when it ended and wish I could rediscover it all over again.
Favorite quotation: “You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.” -Mae West
Song that has played the most on your MP3 player: Probaby something loud and fast.
Best way to spend a weekend: Camping - I love being outdoors!
Your go-to pick for movie night: Action or Rom-Com.  I like my movies to be pure escapism and kind of brainless.
Favorite Vacation Destination: Anywhere I have never been before.  I love traveling to new countries and meeting interesting new people.
Window or Aisle: Aisle - long legs and I hate feeling boxed in
What is the first giveaway that a book is going to be good: if the blurb on the back grabs me
Website you have spent the most time reading:  This one - I created and maintain it :-) Other than that, Facebook and

Cherry is a semi-autobiographical novel about a guy who goes to Iraq as an army medic, comes back, gets addicted to heroin, and starts robbing banks. The author is currently serving an 11-year sentence. I picked it up on a whim and as I was reading it I kept saying “WOW this is good!” The guy is a total screw up, but his apathy and lack of direction is entirely relatable. A powerful book that will stay on your mind well after you close the cover.
Both heartbreaking and humorous, The Mars Room paints an unflinching picture of the women’s prison system and the women that inhabit it. Kushner offers a glimpse into the underbelly of society and offers up complex characters, from prostitutes to prison wardens. I couldn’t put it down!
