Sarah's a Pennsylvania native and PSU grad who has since relocated to Chicago, one of the least midwest-y cities in the midwest. When she isn't reading books, she's maintaining her own music blog (www.howsmyliving.com), hosting a weekly indie-rock-and-also-bluegrass radio show (www.chirpradio.org), singing in a folk-rock/Americana inspired band (www.jungleofcities.com), or yelling about hockey on the internet. She enjoys dystopian fiction, zombies, peanut butter, and chasing after her cats.

Jaime is a southerner, born and raised. She is very much in love with her Jersey boy husband, who is slowly but surely becoming a little more southern everyday! No little ones yet, but hopefully very soon. She does have two pups who are her babies: Roxy the Lab and Andy the Pitbull. She works from home rebuilding, refurbishing and building from scratch new furniture, and loves every minute of it. And reading at least a couple of books at home, and others that are for on the go. She is looking forward to being a part of the awesome The Best Books Ever blog.
Reg is a perpetual college student from Wisconsin. He has a BA in English (Creative Writing) and is currently working towards another in Graphic Design and Theatre. He has a lot of thoughts about art, writing, and the creative process in various fields. Most often you can find him covered in sawdust and paint in a workshop somewhere or working on his craft in his own studio ( www.regcommathe.com) alternately hoping for and dreading an interruption. He enjoys excessive amounts of pillows, burritos, and dinosaurs. He also tends to prefer the book choice roulette of doing exactly what the old cliché tells us not to and judging a book by its cover. He'd rather not get sucked into genre preferences. If it's there, he'll probably read it.
I'm a 20 year old college student from Pennsylvania with the aspiration of becoming a teacher and writer. I currently work at a school where I do reading therapy with elementary-age students; and I adore it. I love everything book-related, vintage and quirky.
