Seira can’t remember a time when she wasn’t infatuated with reading--19 years in the book industry later, her house is brimming with shelves upon shelves of memoirs, cookbooks, coffee table books, all manner of fiction, and an insane number of children's books and YA novels. Don’t judge, just borrow a book.
