Reader’s Advisory

   I’m pausing from my SLIS studies while spending time in the hospital with my little girl, River. She may be small but they are never too small to be read to – and we are enjoying this book, The Day You Were Born by Debra Frasier.  This lovely board book is perfect for reading…

The Missing Link

   Bats! In a library! 25 great British novels.  Open Ebooks app.  Reading in public.  The best fantasy books, ranked.  Crazy, grammatically correct sentences.  Salvadorian writer in exile.  Favorite Pulitzer winning novels. 


   I will be back as soon as I’m able – my daughter surprised me by coming early (2 months early!) and is spending time in the hospital. All is well, but I’m going to concentrate on fattening her up. BRB, y’all.
