About My Library
Because I am a librarian who loves connecting patrons with books, I read a lot of books to learn and practice Readers Advisory, not always out of personal desire. A "good book" is one you enjoy -- regardless of other's opinions!

My "reviews" are generally annotations, not critiques. My text will (almost) always try to highlight the positive reasons to appreciate the book. However, my star ratings are based on my personal likes and dislikes.

I read a lot of audiobooks. Narrators I really love are:
Scott Brick
Jim Dale
Susan Ericksen
George Guidall
James Marsters
Will Wheaton

Links I want handy:

About Me
My passion is connecting people with stories they enjoy, regardless of format.

Currently, I am the Collection Services Manager at Naperville Public Library (NPL) in Naperville, IL, after 11 years with NPL as an Adult Services Librarian. I am also a member of the Adult Reading Round Table and its Steering Committee.

I also review audiobooks for Booklist.

Share and Enjoy!
