About meI'm a children's librarian in a public library, a wife, a mom, a Phillies fan - not necessarily in that order (especially during baseball season). More on my blog's About Me page.

About my libraryMy library contains books which I have read, but in most cases, do not own. I use LibraryThing to catalog the many books that I read to help me in my job as a youth services librarian.

I just wanted to say that I've enjoyed reading your reviews. They are insightful and informative. I've visited your website to read more, and this too is a very informative collection! Thank you for taking the time to write such insightful pieces.
Hi. I recently read Gary Schmidt's book Okay For Now. Your review is incredible!
Thanks for the note. No. We had to re-run it because it skipped some people (see You'll only get one copy, don't worry :)

Hi, we have very little in common in our libraries, but I have added you to my "interesting libraries list." I very much enjoy your reviews and I hope to get some ideas for good reads for my kids...we loved Al Capone Does My Shirts. Now I'll have to get 'Shoes.' Kids in your library are lucky to have you! Cheers...
Thanks, I subscribed to your blog feed as well. Cheers!
Fixed now, sorry about that!
Thank you!
