I Love Kelly Day

Kelly is a very awesome blogger, librarian and good friend of mine. Right now, Kelly is dealing with some very nasty budget issues in the state of Wisconsin, so a group of us got together to declare today "I Love Kelly Day!"

Kelly blogs at Stacked Books and I love reading her reviews! Her reviews always get me thinking, which I love, and she really writes from her librarian heart. Not only that, but she loves contemporary fiction and is constantly giving me a kick in the butt to read more contemps!

I honestly don't remember how Kelly and I first met-somehow we connected via blogs and Twitter. But we're librarians, we love books, and we were both heading to ALA, and our friendship took off. Now I'm lucky to count Kelly among my dear librarian friends (and a fellow member of the ILOAS!)

So here's to you Kelly! Sending you lots of virtual hugs (and cocktails!)
