A start

Hi everyone!

This is the first post in what I hope (no, promise!) will be a blog that actually gets updated more than once in a blue moon (unlike, say, this one ).

I’m planning to write about the books I read, just about as soon as I finish reading them. I’m a librarian, so I’m lucky enough to basically read for a living. Here, you’ll read mainly about my “fun” reading, which tends to consist of non-fiction – usually historical – cookbooks, craft books, and some fiction. Oh, and an embarrassing amount of children’s literature, so you’ll read about some old favourites too.

Send me suggestions! I am always looking for something new for the bedside table! Here’s what I’ve got lined up at my local public library to start:

The Wordy Shipmates, by Sarah Vowell

The Happiness Project, by Gretchen Craft Rubin

Consuming Passions and The Victorian House by Judith Flanders.

and I really should also write about My Own Two Feet, by Beverly Cleary , if only so my librarian friends can learn how little the profession has changed!
