Books I’ve Read – May

In January, I started sharing books I’ve read for two reasons.  First, I would like a place to keep a list of all the books I have read and just haven’t found a good place for it yet.  Second, I love hearing what other people are reading and I like to add to my list of books to read.

When you finish reading the list, leave me a comment with your favorite reads this month and get additional book recs from my JanuaryFebruaryMarch and April lists. I know it is almost the end of June, but I still need to share the books I read in the month of May.

The two books I have been reading the most are Management Basics for Information Professionals and Reference and Information Services in the 21st Century, both required reading for my classes. I did a little bit of fun reading squeezed in between chapters about library management and being a better researcher.

This Book is Overdue!: How Librarians and Cybrarians Can Save Us All by Marilyn Johnson – I picked up this book because it was listed in my desktop calendar of books to read (one each day…it is taking me awhile to work though the list!) and also because I am in school for Library and Information Science. I really enjoyed this book. Many of the stories that Ms. Johnson tells from her research are hilarious.

Frommer’s South Florida – We are planning a big Florida trip and the majority of it will be spent in South Florida. I checked this book out from the library and made a list of all of the attractions that we want to see while we are on our adventure.

Gooseberry Patch – The Christmas Table – I reviewed this book for my craft blog and it has some wonderful recipes. My favorite is Cinnamon Spice Popcorn, which is going to become a road trip staple I think!

June’s reading list is a bit longer and will be posted in just a few days!
