Director of Corporate Associate Members

Sharon Bliss, Book Bliss Online

They say that my love of books manifested early; I was reading at the age of three. So maybe starting Book Bliss Online was inevitable. So, what does Book Bliss Online do? I’m the solution to all those books in the house that you want to get out, and don’t know how. I clear them out for you, pay for the ones I can resell, and donate the rest.

I’m looking forward to serving on the board as Director of Corporate Associate Members this year, and to helping the chapter grow!
