Carrie's Book List

Carrie is obsessed with dark chocolate, turtles, climbing things, books, and naming her pets after brilliant authors. She happened into a bookselling job as a teen and knew she found her people. A few life adventures later, she is happy to be back . . . for good. Yes, you have probably seen her walking downtown while reading, how else would she find enough time? She tends to have several books going at once, including working on her own (very slowly). Favorite genre's include picture books, science, poetry, short stories, and translations (esp. Japanese literature!). She also has a major soft spot for books that are hard to shelve due to defying genre.
