Michael is one of those book addicts whose kitchen cupboards store boxes of pancake mix and fusilli snuggled against Dostoyevsky and Atwood. His last bookcase has gone missing …. Behind piles of books! One of the few reasons Michael would like to be a home owner is the possibility of having a proper library. And a dog.
Dan is living his dream of owning and working in a bookstore. He enjoys reading poetry, books on political science, theology, social justice, gardening and the occassional good novel. He has an on-going obsession with anything by or about Wendel Berry, books about books and a developing obsession with books about trees.
New Directions, NYRB, Europa, Pushkin, Valancourt, and Penguin Classics. 'Nuff said.
Danielle is an avid reader and music lover. The weirder, the better!
I sometimes worry that by encouraging so many more people to try their hand at baking through 'The Great British Bake Off,' I'm going to find myself in court one day charged with accelerating the national epidemic of obesity! To which I will plead not guilty. A slice of Victoria sandwich is never going to harm anyone.

“We read books to find out who we are. What other people, real or imaginary, do and think and feel... is an essential guide to our understanding of what we ourselves are and may become.” - Ursula K. LeGuin
"Books are the carriers of tradition and the seeds of change; a source of solitary enjoyment and communal celebration; beautiful physical objects and abstract spaces for language and thought; work and pleasure; desirable and burdensome; always doomed and always thriving; cheap thrills and pricey enlightenment; worth talking about, worth fighting for, worth loving, worth sharing, worth making a life about."
--Jessica Stockton, events coordinator at McNally Robinson Booksellers, New York City
