The only thing Julie misses about her past career as an environmental attorney is the free time she had to read on the train every day commuting into Philadelphia.  She now squeezes her reading in between ordering all the books for the store, planning and promoting events, managing a fantastic team of booksellers, and trying to keep up with the grocery shopping and laundry for her teenage twin boys.  Julie opened Inkwood Books in 2015 when, after 47 years, her older sister Stefani (who owned the original Inkwood Books in Tampa) finally let Julie play with her and her friends.
