I’ve been aching for the longest time to talk books with people on a regular basis. You’d think that would be pretty simple being a librarian, right? Wrong. People don’t ask me for reading suggestions. They ask about how to attach files to emails, or how to work the printer, or tell me all about their current medical woes and then ask me if we have books on aliens. I don’t get to talk books.
I’m also a happily practicing member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I’ve been in a few short-lived Relief Society-based book clubs, some of which have asked for my professional assistance in picking books, while most have been happy to read whatever book by a general authority they can get for a good price on Amazon.
I’m surrounded by books all day. I spend a good portion of my week reading reviews and learning about new books to purchase. The intent of this blog is to take my religious life and professional life and combine them. I want to give LDS women (and men, no need to discriminate) books of good report to read that aren’t necessarily by LDS authors (though I don’t intend to *not* review those!). I want to let you know about new books that will hopefully inspire you, edify you, and give you a new perspective on life. I want to highlight literature that needs an audience. I hope I can achieve that with this blog.
Please feel free to comment or email with your questions. Are you looking for a particular kind of book? Let’s see if we can help you! Like a particular book (or movie) and want to read more books like it? We can certainly come up with suggestions! We hope our reading suggestions inspire you.
