Meet Rayne!

  2. What 3 books are currently on your bedside table?  The Fascinators by Andrew Eliopulos, Why Fish Don't Exist by Lulu Miller, The Inquisitor's Tale  by Adam Gidwitz
  3. What genre(s) do you most prefer to read?    Memoir,  popular history and science, Literary Fiction, and Sci-Fi/Fantasy with a literary bent
  4. What book do you most recommend that everyone should read and why?   How to Write an Autobiographical Novel by Alexander Chee.   If you create Art, consume Art, or care about the future of Art in an America constantly threatened by Nihilism, this gorgeous memoir-in-essay of Chee's life as a writer is life changing. 
  5. What are your hobbies (other than reading)?  When I'm not reading books or talking about books, I sing with the Boise Gay Men's Chorus, play the piano (BADLY!), dance, and do yoga.
  6. What do you like best about working at Rediscovered Books?  The rush of tracking down an old, nostalgic, or half-remembered childhood favorite for a customer--the fun detective work of puzzling out the cluse, and the absolute joy when we track down a title and reunite the customer with a story they treasured.
