It’s not a coincidence that I’m a librarian. I love books. There is no doubt that words, stories and books are so very powerful. They open your eyes to worlds you would otherwise have thought didn’t exist, but they do. And they’re important because they are people’s stories and people are important. I like stories that educate, challenge what is wrong and shine light on the good.

I find it helpful to read book reviews before picking up a new book so now I’ve decided to do my own. This page has reviews of children’s books as well as reviews of books for adults which I believe have important life lessons. My intention is to give perspective and encourage you to consider different sort of books.
