Reading is more than a hobby. It’s a lifestyle. Reader Living launched in September 2018 as a way for book lovers to incorporate their favorite books into everyday life with crafts, recipes, activities and more.

Laura Chapman is the founder and chief content creator for Reader Living. The best-selling and award-winning author of romantic comedies, she established Reader Living to share some of her favorite activities, and a love for books, with others. When she isn’t working at a museum by day or penning her next novel by the early morning (or late night) light, she enjoys baking, crafting, traveling and binge-watching classic movies with her cats, Jane and Bingley.
