 "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.  Her favourite reads are psychological thrillers, family dramas, nature and foraging, health and well being, and books about social justice. When she's not reading books, she's making visual art or tramping around the forest. 

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.
