What is Janice Penner Reading?

Janice will read almost anything.  In fact she has long suffered from abibliophobia, fear of running out of reading material!  After retiring as a teacher/librarian she discovered a cure...working at a bookstore.  Now the only discussion is whether she needs to get rid of some of her books or get more bookshelves.  Of course there is only one correct answer to that question!
