Amie Gibb

Amie's knowledge of books is similar to her knowledge of wines: she doesn't have anything intelligent to say about either one, but she consumes a helluva lot and knows what she does and doesn't like. She may not know a top note, or the definition of Iambic Pentameter, but who cares? She loves to read. She also loves to share and talk with people about the books she loves.
