Named after the book her father was reading when she was born, Sarah was destined to be a reader. In fact, she has spent her entire career recommending books to readers: She worked at a New York publishing house before relocating to Seattle to work at Amazon. Sarah loves women’s fiction, memoirs, cookbooks, home design/organizational books, parenting books, and a good multigenerational family saga. When she’s not working or reading, she’s watching the movie Planes with her two young sons, menu planning with her husband, or daydreaming about the perfectly designed reading nook.
