Daily Bookish Challenges Day Four

Day Four: Wednesday, September 17: What are your favourite things about people who love to read and are really passionate about books?

Would this bookstore have any extra or special features? For example, it may have a cafe, a bar, etc. I would put a cafè in the store on the second level with a play are for little kids where the parents could relax. What would the staff be like there? Would you want to work there? The staff would be friendly, engaging, recommending tons of books to people. I would definitely work there. Do they sell things other than books? It would mainly be …

I am participating in Trees of Reverie‘s Read-A-Thon this month, and with it comes some daily prompts. Introduce us to your favorite author and their books! Stephanie Perkins is one of my new favorite authors! I fell in love hard with all three of these books!   Anna and the French Kiss Lola and the Boy Next Door Isla and the Happily Ever After       I had been on Tumblr for a few weeks, and I kept seeing these books pop up on my dash, so I decided to check them out and see if I liked them. Obviously I did. (Reviews here, here, and here). Here writing is so engaging, and realistic, I fell in love with her heroines. Here are some photos I took while reading the books:
