Amanda's Picks

I was one of the lucky people to grow up in the mountains of Brevard.  After college I moved back to the most beautiful place on earth.  Before owning the bookstore, I was an elementary teacher in both Henderson and Transylvania Counties, where I developed a love of children’s literature.  I purchased the store with my husband, Chris, in December of 2015 and have enjoyed my new role in the community.  I particularly enjoy reading non-fiction as you can probably tell from my staff picks list.  If you are looking for book recommendations, my favorite thing about this job is finding you the perfect book.
