Introduction I started in bookselling when Porter Square Books opened over seven years ago. I am there full time now as the online presence manager and one of the magazine buyers. Right now I'm reading Pale Fire, Bomber County by Daniel Swift, The Cry of the Sloth, by Same Savage, and Pacific Crucible by Ian Toll. I've also published fiction, poetry, and essays here and there and am a reviewer for Bookslut.com and write my own culture blog InOrderofImportance.
