Hi! My name is Chase. Welcome to my blog! I started The Bookend Diner in 2019 and have loved connecting with people all over the world through books and food. I’m 33 years old, a wife, dog mom and avid reader of all genres. I love to bake and experiment with new foods. I also love (reasonably priced) fashion, home decor and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

    “That’s life. You’re always making decisions, taking paths that lead you away from the rest before you could see where they ended. Maybe that’s why we s a species love stories so much. All those chances for do-overs, opportunities to live the lives we’ll never have.”
