Books Stephanie Jass Loves

Stephanie was an avid reader with a preference for fiction growing up. She said, "As a kid I liked and I still really like mysteries. I zipped through my family collection of all the Nancy Drews some from the 1920s. It was so funny to see how she’d changed throughout the years.  I read all the Trixie Beldens when I was really little, and I moved on to Agatha Christie and Conan Doyle by the time I was certainly by the time I was in high school. I think what started getting me interested in history was I read the Little House series when I was quite young and considering what it was like to live in a different time period."
