2015: A Reading Year in Review

Each month I published my reading update over on my Tumblr, or at least I try to do it every month. I am less than successful. I think my 2015 reading year in review belongs here. Considering much of 2015 was spent in a  Ph.D. program I’m impressed with the number of fiction books I […]

Summer Reading List 2014 – What Are You Reading This Summer?

I opted to create my reading list for this summer on Pinterest. I like being able to see the covers and I think I’m more likely to add in start and finish dates as comments. I didn’t do a very good job of editing my post last year to add that information. I also didn’t […]

Recommended Reading for New and Not-So-New Librarians

I came across this post from Carl Grant on Sunday and felt like it was serendipity – the semester is almost over and on Saturday I had posted that it was time start working on my summer reading list. Carl talks about his encounter with a stranger in an airport and using her remark that librarianship is […]

7 Books that Changed the Way I See the World

I don’t think this was really meant as a meme but I’m stealing it and using it as such. I came across this list on the Happiness Project blog, and I think its highly appropriate that I create my own list since  The Happiness Project would definitely be on it! This was actually a hard list […]
