Hi! My name is Jen. I work at the oldest & largest bookstore in Southern California, Vroman’s Bookstore. If you are ever in the area, I encourage you to check it out. I have worked there for 6 1/2 years now, which coincided with my “growing up” period. That being the case, Vroman’s has become a second home.

The reason I started this blog was so that I could share that “home”, with all of you. Every new product that comes in, every book that I fall in love with, every bookseller that wants to be heard-I want to share those things & moments with you.

Sometimes I can be funny. Sometimes I am a total dork. Sometimes you will love what I have to say and sometimes you will totally disagree with a book that I have chosen to review, or a comment I have to say. That’s totally fine! I just hope that you will stick with me, hear me out and communicate your feelings! I love that the book world is such an amazing community and that there is so much to talk about!

It is my hope to share a bookseller’s perspective on the book world. A perspective that you might not see too often, or at all. Just remember that all views/ words said on this blog are my own. Vroman’s has not asked me to write this blog, nor do they censor my posts.

I hope you enjoy!

Love, Jen in the Bookstore ❤
