About Victoria Griffith

**I love books** What kind, you say? I am nuts about contemporary fiction, with a particular fondness for first novels; nature writing; every magazine that could possibly be detrimental to an adolescent female; cool interior and exterior design books; really off-the-wall business life books; wacky sexual improvement titles and practically any sappy memoir/essay.

    Mom taught me that you can make a difference in the world and that books really do matter: they’re how we know what we need to do in life, and how we tell others.
    Note: A beautiful tribute to the power of the written word (also to the author's rather inspiring mother).
