About meI am a library/media specialist in the Northeast. I am an avid reader and can't wait to read my next book. The only problem I have is deciding which book in my "to read" pile will be next. As far as I am concerned there are never enough hours in a day to read. My perfect job would be reading and writing reviews... without a doubt.

My job is a teacher/library media specialist, but my passion is all about the kids and their learning to acquire a love of reading. I purchase children's books for K-5 and have been involved with young adult literature as well. I believe strongly that children who love to read will succeed, whether they read online or in a book.

About my libraryI am most drawn to reading historical fiction and history which I include biography. I also enjoy a lot of contemporary fiction.
However, I read nearly every Stephen King book written(yet usually hate horror books). I am not particularly interested in fantasy books, but have read many of the Terry Brooks "Shannara Series" and of course CS Lewis and Tolkein.

Therefore, I would say I am always looking for a great read. I have an open mind and read reviews often. PLEASE, recommend any books you think were your absolute favorites!!!!!

As a library media specialist, I read The New York Times Book Review. I always look at School Library Journal, Booklist, Amazon, Kirkus, Publishers Weekly and especially read my fellow Library Thingers reviews out there!!!!!

Please write and recommend your favorites.

I still have books to add to my account, just never have the time.
