Enjoys reading anywhere warm...either swinging on the hammock in the backyard or in front of a cozy fire in the winter.
 "I like to get a blanket, a pillow and a book, and head out to a shaded spot under a tree," says Samantha. Curled up under the leafy canopy, Samantha circumnavigates around the trunk as the idyllic hours pass, following the path of the sun.
Catherine loves reading by the fire or out on the deck on a sunny day. You'll find her with a cup of tea and her trusty dog by her side.
Mel's reading palette ranges from art to history to essays and more, here are a few of her favourites. 
Shirley loves to read in the dappled shade of her deck watching the squirrels.  When she's not reading, you'll find Shirley paddling leisurely or furiously in a kayak or outrigger.
Vivi does our social media and e-newsletter (Top Picks), and is on the book-buying and window display teams.  An incurable polyreader, she can be found wedged inside the pages of thrillers, books with quirky characters, family dramas, nature, foraging, health and social justice books. 
Sonia has been reading lots of great family drama fiction and memoir.  Her interests are sports, history, and travel to obscure islands. 


Dana's favourite genre is anything that will make her laugh or cry. She loves reading anywhere there is shade. The manager at Volume One, Dana keeps everything running smoothly and all with a brilliant smile.


Sarah enjoys a variety of genres, but finds deep dives into non-fiction the most enticing. Reading far and wide or confined to seating options 20 feet from her bed, if she has a book in hand it is a lovely place to be.
Lydia loves reading anywhere, but especially where her dog can curl up next to her. She loves it when a book can cause her to think differently about any given subject or situation. She has a deep love for sci fi, but her reading takes her to other genres as well.
