At the library in which I work we have a “staff favorites” display. Each month a new staff person is featured, and this month I am the lucky one.
And so I’ve been thinking about my favorite books. I feel very scatterbrained about the whole thing. So I am going to just list them here and add to the list as I think of something. Since I can access this site from anywhere this is the perfect medium for this sort of thing. So you can either ignore or enjoy :).
