Introduction

I woke up this morning, and I was like: I KNOW WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS. ANOTHER BLOG!

Okay, not really.

But why not, right?

I've been reviewing books on Goodreads for several years now, and I decided that 2011 is the year I'm finally jumping on the blogging bandwagon. The world of book and library blogging is fascinating, active, and challenging- and I want to be a part of it.

So hello, blogosphere!

I’m a teen services librarian and I LOVE it. I love the literature, and I love working with the age group. It may be a challenge to get teens to come to library events- they’re so overbooked with sports and music lessons and SAT prep classes!- but the ones that do get involved in the library are totally enthusiastic. And teens can be so passionate about their reading. If they loved a book, you’ll know it. If they hated it? Ohhh, you’ll know it. They don’t hold back either way, which makes it super fun to talk books with them. My job is awesome.

I’m also the mother of an infant and a toddler, and I don’t have much time to curl up with a book the way I used to before having kids. So I find myself catching up with my reading in odd moments, anywhere and everywhere I can. I usually have a book at work for my lunch hour, a book on my nightstand for those few moments of quiet before I succumb to exhaustion, an ebook on my iPhone to read while I nurse the baby, and an audiobook in the car for my commute. And maybe a spare book in the car, in case I end up having to wait somewhere like the DMV or doctor’s office. Must have a book at all times! Hence the title of this blog: I read everywhere.
