Once Upon A Time…
There was a girl who loved books very much. She filled her shelves and hours with ink covered pages and dancing words. Lost was she to everything but the adventure…
Sometimes she even forgot about all the work that needed to get done. You see, she was currently enrolled in a Masters in Library and Information Science program and was supposed to be studying very hard to become an Academic Librarian.
Often the girl also committed to reading more books than she could logically fit into her busy life schedule, attempting to be a member of three different book clubs all the while trying to keep a tidy home, straight A’s and hopefully some of her sanity.
She may not speak to you as often as she would hope, but don’t fret! The girl is still here and shes still listening. So if your literary opinions, needs, and questions need attention feel free to send a note via carrion pigeon, or email her if that’s easier.
