Staff Picks - Karen

 
My first real book was one I found in the discarded stuff under my brothers bed. Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson, illustrations by my brother in the page margins...skull and crossbones, peg legs, eye-patches, sabres, treasure chests and tropical palm trees - all carefully drawn in.

My reading has become even richer since then. I have been fortunate enough to have spent my life working among books. These books are some of my recent favorites.
