The 7th…

Posting a review on Barnes and Noble!  It’s on Atwood’s The Year of the Flood, which is also just a couple of posts down.  They’re always asking for reviews of products, and I this time I thought – why not?  Last semester’s class in book publishing rekindled an excitement for books that, ironically enough, library school had nearly stamped out of me.  The small mountain of free uncorrected proofs and advance reader copies that I lugged back from ALA Midwinter,  sitting in two corners, quietly tempting me to read, makes me long to give up this librarian notion and become a reviewer.

So, my seventh adventure was to put my thoughts out there on the bookseller’s website for anyone to read, and
I intend to do more.  Such fun!  My name for reviews is pixie-girl. 😉
