Chelsea's Picks

Chelsea joined the crew in November of 2021

Do you judge a book by its cover?
Yes! I love a well-designed book cover and am frequently drawn in by appealing aesthetics. However! I know from experience that looks can be deceiving.

Dogear or bookmark?
Bookmark for marking my place, dogear for marking favorite passages to return to later.

Monogamist or polygamist reader?
Polygamist reader but genre monogamist. I always have multiple books in progress, but rarely two of the same ilk. This habit comes from the necessity of having to read everything all the time as an English major!

First book that made a big impression on you?
Several, but the first that comes to mind is The Chocolate War by Robert Cormier. "Do I dare disturb the universe?"

Favorite book growing up?
I'm a proud member of the Harry Potter generation, having grown up with the book series in real time. Hogwarts forever!

Your mission as a bookseller?
My mission as a bookseller is helping you discover -- or rediscover -- the right book at the right time. Let's go on an adventure!
