I started John Green’s new one yesterday. I’m only about 40 or 50 pages in and I know already that I will really like this book. However, I am also dreading the end. I know someone must bite it, right? I’ve had a couple of people tell me- be ready with tissues and don’t finish it in public! Yikes!
I’m not really a “sad story” kind of person. I don’t like sad movies, I won’t watch TV shows that are too serious or depressing, and I’m not into the Ellen Hopkins books, if you know what I mean. So I am a little anxious about this read, but I will finish it. I’m hoping there is enough humor and hope to make it worth my while.
I’ll let you know once I’m done.
So, things have been a little busy for the last month and a half or so… I graduated with my MLS in May (yay!!), finished up work the first week of June, adopted a 3-month-old puppy the second week of June, and was offered and accepted a job as a Youth Services Librarian the third week of June- which I will start the second week of July. Whew!! (Why the Whew!!? See above photo!)
I’m also trying to read, read, and read some more! You can follow me on Shelfari here:
So far I’ve read The Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor, two-thirds of the His Fair Assassins trilogy by Robin LaFevers, Bad Monkey by Carl Hiaasen, and I just started The Fault in Our Stars by John Green and a couple of books on training puppies!
I’m also planning on Doing the Dewey for the rest of the calendar year. If you are not familiar with the Dewey Challenge, it’s just a personal goal to read books from all divisions of the Dewey Decimal System- it’s up to you how much you divide the numeric system. I am doing it by 100s, but you could do it by 50s, 20s, 10s, 5s, however detailed and challenged you’d like to be. I figured since I’m starting halfway through the calendar year, I would cut myself a little slack and start my first Dewey challenge at the broadest level. The first book I plan on reading is The World’s Strongest Librarian by Josh Hanagarne, Dewey #020.92. (More on this in a later post.)
So I hope you all find some extra time to read this summer! Maybe it will be pure fluff and fun, maybe it will be informative reading for SAT tests, ACT tests, or puppy training! But whatever kind of reading you are doing is good reading!
Talk to you soon!
