What's the purpose of this page?

I'm Jessica Rodrigues, librarian at a small public library in the Midwest. 

I wanted somewhere to post program ideas I wanted to share with people I met at library conferences, and my Goodreads activity sort of spilled onto the site as well. I'm just here for fun and to share, because I am always looking for ideas on other librarians' blogs.

(Do you know how cheap websites are these days?! Seriously. This whole endeavor has cost me like $12.)

This is a free-time labor of love and all opinions here are my own and are independent of my current or past workplaces.

What are you reading?

- science fiction & urban fantasy
- nonfiction: economics, U.S. history, political science (generally liberal commentary), Bible studies
- cookbooks

Where are you getting these unpublished books?

Librarians get lots of advance reader's copies of upcoming books because we have to make purchasing decisions or give reading recommendations to our patrons. I like telling people about books I like, so here we are.

Can you review my self-published book?

Not right now. I'm continuing to beta-read for authors I've worked with in the past, but between work/school/parenting there's only so many hours in the day.
