Kidliterate founder and main contributor Melissa Posten spent ten years as a children's and young adult bookseller, buyer, and event planner for two independent bookstores. She reads incredibly quickly and has read over 1200 books in 2011 alone - many of those are the five nightly picture books she reads to her five year old daughter, Molly. Others were thanks to her participation on the 2011 ABA New Voices Committee.
Melissa is currently consulting for an educational publisher and reviewing books from her home in Saint Louis, Missouri.
