Kelly's Picks 2018

photo credit Jay Paul

Kelly bought The Fountain in January 2008 after managing it since 2000 and she has been a professional independent bookseller since 1989.

Kelly is currently serving a third term on the board of the Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance and works regularly with the American Booksellers Association on projects as well.  

She loves to talk to folks about books and the book business, food and bev, business and management theory in general (a real geek about that, actually), cats, overproduced action movies, and life in general.  Just ask!!

Her reading journey in 2018 was, as usual, all over the place just like her attention span!

An honorable mention for Instantly Southern since we don't normally include cookbooks but we just had to in this case!!!

In no particular order....
