How do you choose your books?

Every Sunday I read the book sections in the NYT, Wash. Post, LA Times; I read the Times Literary Supplement, and every day at lunch I read publishers catalogs; I use H-Net reviews for non-fiction, I listen to NPR, read the new Yorker, etc.

What kind of books are your favorite?

Interesting and well written books! Funny books. Fiction, non-fiction, mysteries, literary fiction, memoirs, biographies, etc. I follow particular authors, I read award winners, & one books tends to lead to another. I am an unrepentent book nerd.

Have you RSVP'd for the next meetup?

Not yet. I am most interested in the April title.


I am a collection development librarian, so I select books for the university. I read widely and frequently- 2-5 books a week, usually recently published, although I try to catch up on books I missed- I missed Middlesex, so I am reading that now.
