I've been living in Moscow since 2013, first as a University of Idaho student, and now as a part of this wonderful community. I was first hired at BookPeople towards the end of 2017 as a VERY part-time worker with another full time job, and then moved up to full time staff a couple years later. I've been the assistant manager since 2021 and am beyond happy that I get to spend my days surrounded by books and an amazing staff. My tastes for what I'm currently reading vary depending on my mood (I'm sure many of you, my fellow book lovers, can sympathize), but some genres I find myself coming back to again and again are young adult, mystery/ thrillers, historical fiction, and hands-on crafting books. I've made a goal to read a book a week this year so I will slowly add books on to this list that I think were worth it. Hope you enjoy!
