2008 Employee Favorites: Gloria Moe

1. The Battle of the Labyrinth: Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Book Four by Rick Riordan
I find myself drawn again and again to the books coming out in Middle Readers and Young Adults as they are really great reads for both kids and adults. The Percy Jackson series is no exception. They are all great, but The Battle of the Labyrinth is a real page turner and left me wanting more.

2. What-The-Dickens: The Story of a Rogue Tooth Fairy by Gregory Maguire

3. Girls Like Us: Carole King, Joni Mitchell, Carly Simon — and the Journey of a Generation by Sheila Weller

4. A Lion Among Men: Volume Three in the Wicked Years by Gregory Maguire

5. The Plague of Doves by Louise Erdrich

Gloria Moe is one of the assistant managers at Powell's City of Books. While an avid reader of books from many rooms in the store, she has a soft spot for kids' books. (Perhaps she doesn't want to grow up?) And though she's read all of Stephen King, Mickey Mouse is her true hero.
