Chris's Picks

I own Highland Books with my wife Amanda. When I was in high school I used to frequent Highland Books and became acquainted with the owners. I can remember telling them to let me know if they ever wanted to sell because it would be my dream to own a bookstore. Reading has always been a passion of mine so being surrounded by books on a daily basis seemed only logical.  I believe the first book that really got me hooked was The Hobbit.  I can remember checking it out from my middle-school library over and over again until I could save enough money to buy my own copy. After traipsing through fantasy for a while, I moved on to Stephen King, Dean Koontz, Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child, and many others. Now that I own a bookstore, the literary world is my oyster. This makes it extremely difficult to read one book at a time, but I always try to have a good mixture of fiction and nonfiction books in rotation. It all depends on the mood I’m in at any given time.
