I primarily write and keep up this blog for me. I love the response and I check the stats way way more than I should... this really is for me. But I hold back in what I write... because I'm writing posts with an audience in mind. So where I might want to go off on something that the book touched off in me or go more in depth with plot and absolutely share details that are positively spoileriffic - I don't. And part of me really wants to just go ahead and do that. However, I am also writing this with a librarian perspective, and I don't want to give away spoilers but instead think about to whom I might recommend a particular book, regardless of what I thought of it. Any thoughts or suggestions?
And now some exciting news (hence the fireworks): I was promoted at work! YEA!! I am now the Head of Readers' Services at my public library!! This all went down a couple of weeks ago, and at some point this week it all just kind of sank in. This transition period is overwhelming with everything that I'm learning and figuring out, but also has been fairly smooth with the great people that I work with . I will soon be finding someone to fill the YA librarian position, which will be a difficult task. Not because there aren't a ton of wonderful candidates out there - I know there are - but because I am so close to it. It will be hard for me to hand over the reigns to someone else but at the same time, I'm excited to see what a new person will accomplish with our community. Overall - I've basically had a majorly huge goofy grin on my face for the past few weeks, and I don't think its going away anytime soon. After all - just 7 weeks left of classes... FOREVER!
