I'm the Marketing Director for BookPeople, and I love my job. I book different authors to come to the store, talk to publishers about why BookPeople is the greatest independent bookstore ever, and I also work hard at making sure you, the public, love BookPeople as much as I love BookPeople. The best part is getting to meet amazing authors, like Pres. Jimmy Carter, David Sedaris or Ron Jeremy*.
My favorite books seem to vary wildly. I cannot understate how much I love Mr. Darcy, and Pride and Prejudice has been reread many times. Also, I have Harry Potter lightning bolts tattooed on my feet, and I truly feel like I should have played Hermione in the movies (even though I'm about 10 years too old). Some recent favorites are: The Story of Forgetting by Stefan Block, The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova, The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly and Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen.
Also, I have a sweet hubby and super cute son named Lucas. It is widely agreed-upon (by me and my family) that Lucas is the most adorable baby ever born.
*Seriously though, Ron Jeremy wore sweatpants to the store and talked nonstop about famous people who are his "friends." It was a hilarious and magical evening, and he left with a girl named Bambi. I'm not making any of this up.
