It means I will be reading a lot of stuff. Most importantly, I will be required to read one particular genre book each week for class. This is normally not a big problem for me--I already have my first two books picked out, thanks to my very own library at home. All those titles I bought and haven't had a chance to read--well, now I have a reason to read them this semester.
However, I've been in school for two weeks, and I haven't managed to read much more than school stuff just yet. Time management is something I have to work on and get together PRONTO or this chicky won't be posting too many book reviews. And that would be a crime.
Meanwhile, my book talks at work have blossomed--I have two more lined up in the next month, plus a librarian talk scheduled in October for local librarians. I had a great customer service experience last night at work. A woman asked me for help with a list of books for potential book club choices, and told me I had helped her before and one of the books I had recommended became their favorite read. But she couldn't remember what the book was--hey--I'll take that victory anyway. She was very interested in coming into the bookstore for a book talk, so I gave her my card and told her to get in touch to arrange something. I do love talking about books to people! So with all of these book talks coming up in the near future, I have a lot of books to try and read and recommend.
This will be an interesting marriage of what I have to read with what I want to read with what I think others would like. A trifecta of reading that I've never attempted before.
But anyway, I am currently reading The Returned by Jason Mott and I can't wait to review it for you! Look for the review sometime early next week. If I don't get it finished before that--I am having a hard time not wanting to just sit down and read it all in one gulp.
