About meI'm a library aide in a K-12 school in Kansas. Since I spend most of my working hours in the secondary library, I am trying to read more YA books. But my true love of reading has to be mysteries (esp. British) and American history. I've been reading Presidential bios in order for several years now--just for my own pleasure and understanding. I wish I had LT way back then! I don't remember all the ones I have read, but I do remember the few I enjoyed (D. McCullough!) Before working in the school system, I was our church's volunteer librarian for 12 years. And while in college studying art and communication, I worked to pay my way in the campus library. Shoulda got that library degree! Rats.

About my libraryYou'll see lots of different books here. YA, Presidential biographies, Mysteries of the British kind. I'm not a big fan of romance, but I have read some of 'em. Lately, history has been increasingly interesting. Is it because I'm getting older? Gaining wisdom and appreciation for those before me? Or am I finally discovering that history is just flat out interesting? Probably all of the above.
