Dana's Picks

Dana is the shop owner, and has been a bookseller for over twenty years.

Plotline pet peeves?
1. _________ had the perfect life, then _______ happens & everything goes to hell.
2. Dad/mom/grandparent dies & the main character returns home, where long buried secrets... blah blah blah...

Both are just plain lazy and formulaic.

Dogear or bookmark?
Bookmark--I have a stash and match them to the mood/subject of the book.

Any classics you refuse to read?
This isn't going to make me popular, but Austen & Dickens. Tried 'em. We didn't get along.

First book that made a big impression on you?
The Talisman by Stephen King when I was 11--it was the fattest book I had ever read; what a sense of accomplishment.
Then, at 15, Cat's Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut taught me how truly original and unconventional literature could be. It changed everything.

What's your most terrifying book experience?
I discovered I hated my book 30 minutes into a 4hr flight and didn't have a back-up.

Your mission as a bookseller?
To connect people to books that surprise them & open new words/avenues of reading.

Anything else of note??
1. There needs to be an 8th day of the week where nothing is expected of anyone except reading. The world would be a better place. Libroday?
2. I will always have a soft spot for the people who 1st introduce me to books I fall in love with.
