So one of the librarian stereotypes that I truly embrace is that I love to read. Since I am a commuter I have so much time to listen to audiobooks. Usually, I can read at least 4 books in a month. I will be adding a must read section to my blog. There are so many great books out there. My goal is to post a weekly book review on my blog. Please let me know if there are any books that I should be reading. Mostly, my books will be non-fiction with a sprinkle of fiction. I apologize to all the fiction and science fiction lovers out there. My major in undergraduate was history so that’s my jam. I like to stay informed on what’s going on today. Furthermore, I like to know about our past. Lastly, I love reading biographies so that will be apart of this new section as well.
At the ACRL 2019 Conference, I wrote down some book suggestions that were given by speakers. The non-fiction book suggestions were told to me at dinner by my friend. So I will share that with you know.
