My name is Maia. I am a bookseller, book reader, book hunter, hound, detective... all that and a movie buff (oh yes, I watch many movies as well). I'm on the brink of exctiting times. I am opening an independent bookstore in Lincoln Mall in Matteson IL called Azizi Books (that's about 30 miles Southeast of Chicago). I've been both encouraged and called crazy. Instead of going for a "safe" career in new media design I have decided to take a chance and see what else I can do in the world. I'm on the path. Wish me luck!
