I grew up in the Lower Hudson Valley and moved to Burlington after finishing college with a degree in history and politics. After overcoming difficulties with reading and writing, my lifelong love of books began after an aunt gave me several Roald Dahl books in 3rd grade. Currently I read a blend of fiction as well as history and social science. I usually read non-fiction in the morning with tea and fiction at night before bed. If you've read any books on my list let me know when you come in. I love to talk shop.
