What We're Reading

As you may suspect, we read a lot of books. Almost as fun as reading books is talking about them with friends, customers, strangers sitting next to us at Stellina, hikers on Sky Trail, weekend bikers in line at Bovine Bakery... If we haven't cornered you yet to talk about our current favorites, you can check here to see what books--old, new, and forthcoming--we're currently enjoying.
