About Me/Us 🙂
Welcome to my online bookstore! I hope this becomes one of your favorite places to escape to. As an avid reader myself, I’m always hunting my next great read and keeping my fingers crossed that I won’t have to break open my piggy bank to bring it home with me! I come across far more great books than I can read in a lifetime in my book hunting adventures, so I created this place to share some of those great deals with other readers!
My love for books started young, thanks to a wonderful mom who voraciously read and taught my siblings and me to do the same. Our big family (six kids, including me!) always had stacks of books and frequent trips to the library to keep our To Read piles full. But I realized something special about my own copy of a book (whether brand new or just new-to-me) and the connection built through the words on the pages. Not every book is granted a special place on my personal bookshelves, but the ones that are have earned it.
I’m a chronic re-reader, and no matter how many books are still on my ‘To-Read’ shelf, I often choose to dip back into the pages of my favorites. Sometimes it’s a favorite author, in which case I’ll read any book they ever put in print, or it may only be that one storyline or one character that spoke to me a particular point in my life. Some books feel as familiar to me as old friends. I got very sick when I was about eight years old, and my life got pretty isolated for a long time. Through those years, my love of books blossomed into the unstoppable addiction it is today. Books became my gateway to a world I wasn’t well enough to experience first-hand.
That time of my life has taught me to appreciate each unique experience I have now, and sometimes makes me do some pretty strange things – like buying 10,000 books! I have been buying and selling books as a hobby to fund my book addiction for seventeen years now, and during quarantine amid the 2020 COVID-19 epidemic, I decided to pursue doing books full time, which has completely changed my life! I love what I do now, and each day is an adventure. Lucky for you, my experiences result in more amazing books being added to my inventory! I appreciate you stopping by and hope you find your OWN adventure while you’re here!
