I'm Featured On Goodreads

So I knew it was coming because I had to answer some interview questions. But there is nothing more amazing than opening your email inbox and Twitter feed and having it filled with your friends sending you messages saying "OMG! You're in the Goodreads newsletter!!!"

And yep, that's what happened Friday afternoon. I saw this Goodreads Voice interview in my inbox:

 
Honestly, it's still a bit surreal. People read it. And commented! And I just can't believe that Goodreads even asked me to be a featured interviewed member!
 
If you're curious about what books I love to recommend and what life is like as a librarian, check it out! And add me as a friend on Goodreads if you'd like! I love sharing books with other readers!

Dear Books: Please Update Your Libraries

I feel like authors and illustrators should know better! And it's not just older books-it happens in new books too!
