I first met Jamie Miller over on Instagram (where she goes by perpetualpageturner) because of our shared love of the Doylestown Bookstore. Since then, I’ve come to appreciate so much more about Jamie. She is a great resource for book recommendations, a mom who keeps it real on her Instagram stories and her blog, and she has great taste in beer! I’m so pleased she agreed to be our October Local Literati profile. I hope you enjoy getting to know her as much as I do. Please, Please, Please be sure to check out her blog while you are at it!

What do you love most about the Mainline/Philly? I love that we are so close to everything we could want — mountains, beach, city, major cities like NYC and DC, rural areas, suburbs. It’s all at my fingertips.
- comfy sweatpants
- my phone (sorry)
- my glasses (I’m like almost legally blind)
- Trader Joe’s (seriously, y’all it’s an addiction)
Can you tell us a bit more about your blog? My blog is The Perpetual Page-Turner and it’s evolved from a book blog to more of a lifestyle type blog over the years. It’s still with a bookish slant but I also chat motherhood (new mom over here!) and other life stuff in between the books.
