Ah, there's nothing like reccommending books to a patron, whether it be a new favorite or a classic like Hemingway

I'm not a librarian but I do know the pleasure of recommending books to someone. Do you participate on Goodreads? I joined but rarely do anything there.

I am a proud goodreads.com member I like that just to preview a book or get a feel for how people liked it. What are you interested in?

@librarygeek1980 I've always been an escapist so science fiction & fantasy. My first "grown up" sci-if/fantasy book was Dragonriders of Pern; Piers Anthony Xanth series featured prominently in my teenage years.

I have always thought of starting to read. I just stopped reading books after college. Maybe it is just me but I preferred watching videos over reading. But I guess reading would also benefit me by excising my imagination. I will be reading soon. I am looking forward to study business using books.

Lol, I guess I'm biased, but the book is better, because it allows you to stretch the brain, allow for creativity, and also don't forget details, the extended cut or deleted scenes in print

@lookatdesktop I know, right!? What bugs me is the ones who try to rewrite history

@librarygeek1980 I worry about this sometimes, because I know there are lots fewer historians who actually keep track of things like they once did and nowadays, many refer only online to Wikipedia which is essentially a little better than Facebook. Actually I prefer Wikipedia to many sites that provide accurate facts. It seems NPR, Reuters, Wikileaks and YouTube are being used more than ever for the truth. The more you read about a subject on the internet, the deeper the half truths and lies become, with some exceptions of course. Its not all black and white as it onec seemed to be, back in the day of newspapers. lol

I just got done reading The Dollhouse by Fiona Davis, look it up on goodreads.com, I highly recommend this one if you are into a bit of women's history and what with all that's going on in the political world right now, it's quite fitting

Back in the day I used to help volunteer at a smaller one and helped put the books back on the shelves that people had returned. Was interesting the type of books people would return and even help me find a Good one to read.

Wow. That is something I haven't experienced. I find myself recommending books to the librarians who check me out. It seems they are really positive about books, but some are more enthusiastic about DVD movies.

Ya know, I have a few patrons who also do that, lol. I personally love it, because a) it's fun to know what the community is into, and b) gives us more of a variety as to what to buy for the collection. Thanks for the comment!
