Laurie Hertzel is the books editor for the Star Tribune, which means she spends hours every day opening boxes, and each night lugs home more books than anyone could read in a lifetime. But she’s not complaining and knows exactly how lucky she is to be paid to write about books. (When she’s not opening boxes.)
