Welcome to my world!

I love to read and I love to share what I read. If you are looking for a good book, I hope I can help you.

I am a children's librarian. I read a lot of children's nonfiction (I write a nonfiction reading list for my library system) but I also truly enjoy fantasy, historical fiction and bright, colorful, silly picture books.

As far as grown-up reading goes, my favorite author is Elizabeth Berg (I really like the warmth of her characters and the wonderful way she describes the little things in life). I read a lot of historical fiction, especially about Henry VIII/Elizabeth I and the turmoil surrounding them. I'm not a big mystery reader but I do enjoy C.J. Sansom's Matthew Shardlake mysteries and Carris Bebris' Mr. & Mrs. Darcy mysteries. I prefer memoirs to biographies. Cookbooks and quilting books make up a huge portion of my personal library.

Let me know what you're reading, too. It only seems fair....
