About meI am a public services librarian at the Capital Area District Library in Lansing. My fiction reading mostly consists of literary fiction, speculative fiction, historical fiction, and graphic novels, in roughly that order. I've also started reading a lot of queer and radical social history recently. I read thematically: if I'm interested in learning about female foreign correspondents in the early 20th century, that's all I'll read about for a few months. Regardless of my current interests, if you give me queer historical fiction I'll stay up all night to finish it.
About my libraryI use LibraryThing to keep tabs on what I've read, not what I own. Because I recommend (rather than review) books for work, my reviews here are overwhelmingly positive: they're intended to encourage people to find books that interest them, not to engage in a critical conversation. Most of them are posted on CADL's website
