I spent my angsty teens perusing the shelves at Kepler's. After a career in biochemistry and over a decade rasing kids full time, I now love to work with customers to find that "This is perfect!" book. My reading interests lean more toward non-fiction, though I do love a good novel, too! Mysteries, not so much. I am happiest outdoors, preferably with my family - backpacking in the Sierras is my idea of heaven!
