Shire founder, Miriam, is a long time avid book reader and lover. Miriam firmly believes reading is an essential component of life and should have its own classification in one’s hierarchy of needs. Growing up and to this day, she can often be found carrying a book around with her, wherever she roams. She is thrilled to bring her love and passion for the written word to others and is excited to see what the future has in store for the Mountain Shire.
Mountain Shire: Books & Gifts promotes literary and artistic growth for readers of all ages. One of the Shire's goals is to foster a community of readers of all ages who will preserve and pass down, from generation to generation, their appreciation, love, and power of the written word.
