Update on Me, My Blog & Moving Forward in 2016

I have finished my most recent term on a selection committee!
*cue sparklers and explosions of glitter*

This means I am looking forward to begin updating my blog on a regular basis again!  Part of serving on selection committees means that you are extremely limited in being able to express public opinions about anything you read that might end up on your committee's final list. I have served on selection committees now for the last three years which explains the erratic updating of my blog.  It's a funny thing - writing reviews for VOYA, SLJ and on my own blog are part of what allowed me to serve on these committees but, once you're on them, you can't have a public opinion about any potential nominations.

I've read - literally - hundreds of books in the last three years and have kept notes so reviews are forthcoming. For now, I am giving myself a few weeks to read anything I like without obligation and I will start reviewing on my blog/goodreads etc in March 2016.

I'm also planning to start sharing programming ideas, Teen Services ideas and struggles, and general librarian thoughts.  If there's any specific you'd like to see discussed here please feel free to leave a comment and I'll see what I can do.

In the meantime - Happy reading!
