meMy name is Laura. I’m a writer, reader, mommy, wife, cook, baker, artist, dreamer, entrepreneur and INFP. I’ve got an MFA in fiction, a husband, two kids, a cat, a dog, and six chickens. I like to make things. You can find out more about me at lauraender.wordpress.com. But I’m guessing, if you’re reading this, you’re asking yourself,

What is “The Sensitive, Bookish Type”?

First and foremost, it’s a quote from a movie: Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Holly says, “Did you ever steal anything from the five and ten? When you were a kid, I mean?” and Paul replies, “No. I’m the sensitive, bookish type.”

I think a lot of us can relate. Those of us who think, feel, and read; who love to learn and enjoy a good bit of dialogue. We see the world a little differently than what’s marketed as average. We’re doodlers and daydreamers. We have a great sense of humor.

When it began, “The Sensitive, Bookish Type” was an online bookstore, selling vintage books through Etsy. It’s since expanded into an arts and culture lifestyle blog and a YouTube channel. It’s a site where you’ll find something quirky, something fun–something a little bit different.

My mission: to bring you high-quality content that feeds your ever-hungry brain and helps you understand and/or express who you are. Because I get the feeling, if you’re reading this, you’re probably the sensitive, bookish type.



  1. Dear Laura,
    Just finished reading your story “Violets” in One Teen Story. I’m in tears. So moved. It’s an amazing piece. I felt deeply for your protagonist. Read much of the story with my mouth agape at Aunt Sylvia’s nerve and the dad’s insensitivity. Wanted to kick Sylvia, too! Loved how you used Hamlet in the story as well. Enjoyed it from beginning to end and I’ll look forward to your novel. Congratulations on One Story. That’s a great accomplishment, as well.
