Happy Thanksgiving to those celebrating in the U.S. The blog is going on hiatus until sometime during ALA Midwinter. The holidays being one reason, and my committee work being the other. For anyone considering going for one of the many book award committees in ALA, be prepared to read. A lot. At this point, my projected reading schedule needs to be a book a day. And since I can't cut back my hours at the jobs, anything that's not job related or reading for the committee is not going to get done.
Also, as much as I adore being on the committee, I'm not going to seek reappointment to it for next year. Anyone who's loves adult genre fiction, and isn't afraid to spend a good chunk of your life reading for the next year, there will be an opening on the Reading List Council. You have to be a member of ALA's Reference and User Services Division (RUSA). The current vice-chair of the Collection Development and Evaluation Section (CODES) makes the appointments. If you're at Midwinter in Philadelphia and are interested in being on the committee, be sure to introduce yourself to Michael Levine-Clark and fill out the volunteer form.
A blog of musings, maybe mayhem, and more from a young MLIS.
