This is blog will serve as my reading log for my IS571 class at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville where I am enrolled in Library and Information Sciences graduate school program. I will be blogging about children’s books across many different genres and formats. Since I specific requirements I have to meet for class, this may be a little different than typical reading blogs, but feel free to follow it!
Starting with the We Were Liars by E. Lockhart blog post, the posts aren’t for class. There are because I want to keep blogging and probably because I’m avoiding working on revising my novels. Plus, Edelweiss keeps approving my requests for books (I’m addicted), and I feel I should blog about all the great books I’m getting months in advance. Most of the books I blog about will be YA as that’s my favorite genre and what I write, but don’t be surprised is other genres appear.
I’m an (almost) librarian at my local public library in the Youth Services department. I’m about to participate in my first Summer Reading Program as an employee instead of a participant, so there may be some blog posts about that. I’m also a writer, and my own personal deadline is send out the first batch of query letters in mid June, which is equal parts exhilarating and terrifying, and there will undoubtedly be a blog post or two about that.
A note on the images:
The only image I own is the one at the top of the page of the barn. That is a picture I took with my phone on the way home from undergrad (don’t worry, I wasn’t driving) and then edited in Picasa. Please do not use it. The images of the books and movies were found on Google images and are copyrighted by their respective owners.
