Greg Zimmerman, Book Seller and Twitter-savant
In life, as in literature, Greg Zimmerman enjoys a nice mix of the high- and the low-brow. He writes (and uses too-frequent parentheticals) about books at his blog, The New Dork Review of Books. He's also a contributing editor at Book Riot. Greg's day job is as a trade magazine editor, and when he's not doing that, reading, tweeting for @RoscoeBooks, or selling books (which isn't often), he's watching baseball or college basketball. Greg grew up in Ohio, has a BA in Writing Intensive English from Marquette University, and now, of course, lives (for the past 8 years) in Chicago (specifically Roscoe Village) with his wife and two dachshunds named Baxter and Yoshi.
