Welcome to Book Tardis! Books are like Dr. Who's TARDIS to me; open a book and discover a world that is bigger on the inside than it appears from the outside. Books can open a whole new world to readers. They will take you places you've never been or perhaps even dared to dream.
I have had the good fortune of being a reader all my life. My parents instilled a love of reading from an early age by taking me to the library, ordering books from the book orders that came home from school and encouraging participation in summer reading programs. When I became a parent I did the same with my own children. My youngest graduated from high school last year and listed "reading" as one of his top three favorite pasttimes!
I've also enjoyed working with elementary school aged children as part of the local school district's literacy program. Reading is the most imporant skill we can teach and the most basic thing we need to learn to succeed in life. Now I work in the local community college's library and have the chance to spend my work hours immersed in the world of books!
I belong to two book clubs and am in the process of getting a Little Free Library up and running in my community. (Actually, there will be three little free libraries in town thanks to the wonderful committee of people I'm working with.)
This blog will be a place for me to post book reviews. In addition to the already published books I read with my book clubs each month, I have been the receipient of several advance reader copies of books soon to be released. I'm very open to discussion over any and all books! So please feel free to leave comments or questions. Let me know what books you've been reading.
Let's dive into books and discover that a book opens into a world that truly is "bigger on the inside!"
