The Dawn of a New Era

Ok, so perhaps that title is a bit over dramatic, but this is definitely a new chapter in my professional endeavors.  For some time now, I’ve been considering starting a book blog.  Call it divine inspiration, if you will.  Despite my undergraduate experiences with literature written on none other than paper *GASP* I’ve found my Graduate academic career veering ever closer to the technological aspects of libraries.  This is ironic considering the library I currently work in is a proverbial time capsule complete with dusty books and a creaky old microfilm machine.

I will be using this blog partly as a part of my ISLT class, Emerging Technologies in Libraries, so my devout readers looking for inspiring reading recommendations will have to put up with the occasional tech-oriented post.  Have no fear, you must only endure it until December!

I don’t believe I will start my book reviews quite yet.  I am saving my first good review for the best modern YA author in the world (ok, this is strictly my opinion and in saying this I am considering authors such as Lois Lowry to be more classic in nature, but I digress.)  John Green, ladies and gentlemen!!!  I will be reviewing his fantastic new book from 2012, “The Fault in Our Stars.” I hope you’ll choose to read along with me!

Happy reading, everyone!
