This is an easy one for me to talk about today - I deal with books as my livelihood. I'm a librarian, so my professional life revolves around books and putting them in the hands of my patrons. (I was also a bookseller for a few years before becoming a librarian.) This is the most fulfilling job that I have ever had in my entire life. There is nothing better than assessing the needs of my community and filling them with books that I find.
Social networking? What does that have to do with a librarian? Aren't we talking about book blogging? (Stay with me.) As I've said before, I live in a teeny-tiny reading box, so I've been able to learn about books I'd have never looked twice at myself by reading book blogs and doing the social networking thing as a blogger myself. Let me use this opportunity to say this very quickly while I have your attention:
Thank you, book bloggers. Your reviews are more beneficial to communities around the world than you would ever know. Despite any negative thing you may have ever been told, what you do is a wonderful, beautiful thing. You have not only my gratitude, but that of my patrons. You are such an important piece of the puzzle.
What can I possibly say after that? Hmm... Want to enter one of my GIVEAWAYS? I love giving away prizes. :-)
Have a great week!
