A Short Reading Ramble

Someone asked recently what my favorite books were. Get real - I'm a librarian. My list of favorite books is ever-changing and too long to remember off the top of my head. I directed them to my Goodreads account. That's where I post my thoughts and reviews about what I read. While it doesn't cover everything I've ever read in my life (that would be HUGE), it does sum up the past four and a half years I've been using the site...that's 419 books, by the way!

Typically I have at least two books going at the same time. I read a lot of teen fiction, some history and historical fiction, bodice rippers, fantasy, sci-fi, paranormal fiction, mysteries, thrillers, satire, steampunk, etc. I definitely have favorite genres, but I will read just about anything you put in front of me. Fiction, nonfiction, magazines, blogs, cereal boxes, you name it. I'll read it. I had to buy an eReader to take on vacation just so I could transport enough books to keep me calm (I was always afraid I'd run out of things to read).

So you could say I'm a voracious reader. Or a librarian. Same thing, really.

And because I'm a librarian, I'm driven to share what I read. Check out the new gadgets on the right where I'll be posting what I'm reading and what I've read. And/or check out my Goodreads page - if you haven't joined it's a great site for book lovers!
