Hi! I’m Julianne — a/k/a Jules Buono!
I’m passionate about inspiring women to read more. I just can’t stop reading in my free time and I love sharing it. My goal is to serve busy women who are looking to make each day even a little bit better and more meaningful in all facets of life, primarily by reading more. And I like to pair books with fun lifestyle items, like style and recipes.
Here are 25 fun facts about me:
1 – I met my husband Tony via Match.com in 2012 and we married in 2019.
2 – We have three rescue cats, Minnie, Lillian and Romeo.
3 – We live in a rowhouse in Philadelphia.
4 – I grew up in Scranton, Pennsylvania — home of The Office, which is, naturally, my favorite tv show.
6 – Martha’s Vineyard is our summer sanctuary (also where we got engaged!), and I think about it all year long.

12 – I have a hard time motivating myself to workout, but I try to at least do yoga or take a walk a few times a week.
13 – My go-to coffee order is cafe au lait with oat milk, especially at La Colombe in Philly (the best coffee).

21 – I struggle with loud noises and long periods of extroverting.
22 – I’m a Type 6 (wing 5) on the Enneagram test (“the loyalist”) and worry a lot, but I try to be practical.

24 – I love Philly sports, especially the Phillies, the Eagles and the Villanova Wildcats.
25 – I get so much joy in sharing things that matter to me and can help others too, whether it’s a product or a news story, but most especially a good book, so follow along for your next great read!
