Kristin has two Masters degrees, one in Criminal Justice and one in Liberal Studies. She loves being a bookseller, and has been one for the last 4 years. Gathering Volumes is one of her favorite places to be. She may end up being crushed under the stacks of books she owns, but will never stop buying them.
Gathering Volumes exists because of Denise's desire for Perrysburg to have a local, family-owned, independent bookstore. Denise is an avid reader and enjoys many genres and loves to try new content/genres/authors. Her list of books to read is always too many to handle, but that doesn't stop her from adding to it. This list contains books that shs has enjoyed, been amazed by, or feels have helped her grow as a person. She loves feedback on her selections, so feel free to send her an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or through Facebook Messenger if you want to share your experiences with these books.
