About me

I am a Christian of the Baptist variety and a Reference Librarian at a public library.

My [former] boss gave me the most excellent idea. She said that she has been keeping a blog about the books that she has recently read and her thoughts on those books. So, I’m attempting the feat.

While I am tweaking this site, I do try to consistently do the following:

1.I will provide the citation of the book I am reviewing. These are presented in APA format.
2.I like eye candy and I hope to put in some cool photos of what I’ve been reading.
3.I can’t stand spoilers. I will not tell the endings of books.
4.I have a ratings system of pearls. The best score for a book, in my not so humble opinion, is a 5.
5.Lately, I’ve been hooked on the 1001 Books list. For now, I’m working on the core – the books on all editions.
Please enjoy . . .
