Baeyle

I am a part-time bookseller and online order processor for the store. I enjoy most types of fiction.. contemporary, sci-fi, horror, mysteries, historical, fantasy, you name it! When it comes to non-fiction, I like memoirs, social issues, belles lettres, and books on anthropology. When I am not reading I enjoy baking, sewing, hanging out with my loved ones, and spoiling my pet bunny rabbit Amelia.
