Liela's Picks

After graduating from UI, I went to work for libraries in Boise and later here in Moscow before being hired at BookPeople of Moscow. I briefly left to go back to school, but could not stand being away from the books, my awesome coworkers, and the vibrancy of the downtown community, so I am back on a part-time basis while I go to school online. I enjoy nonfiction books about social issues, equality, and justice. For fiction, I like a good fantasy with a dash of romance. I also love manga!
