Meet the Bookseller - Jasmine - New Kid on the Block

Describe what you do at RD books in 6 words.

I sell books to awesome customers!

What was the last book you read that you loved?

Little Wierds by Jenny Slate.  Before reading this books, I would not have considered myself a fan of poetry, but Slate's beautiful imagery changed my mind.

What was a book you read on a recommendation from someone else that you wouldn’t have picked up otherwise?

Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaimann (or visa versa). I am always hesitant to start a book over 300 pages, but this was fully loaded and totally worth it.

Favorite reading spot?

On my couch with a blanket, candle, and with one of my cats in reach.

Book you re-read every year?

I don't have a book that I re-read every year, but plenty that I have re-read in general.  But I would definitely highlight Yes, Please by Amy Poehler.

Favorite part about working at the store?

Hearing about books all day! Thanks to everyone's love of books here, there is always something mindblowing to add to my "to read" list.

Do you have any good author stories? 

Lisa McMann spent the day with us for a school event and donated to our "Read Freely" Project righ after hearing about it. 

How did you come to Rediscovered Books?

I couldn't, and wouldn't, be here without Instagram.

What is something unique to you that you would like people to know?

I have been vegan for 18 years and counting and I like cooking, but not sharing.

What are four all time favorite books for you?

The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster

Where the Sidewalk Ends (audio recording that won a Grammy) by Shel Silverstein

Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris
