Book Club!

I did a thing tonight— I created a Facebook group called The Not Quite Superhuman Book Club. The group is a place to talk about books. There is no monthly set reading list. Simply talk about the books that have you excited and you want to share with others. All books are created equal there.

Anyone can join. In fact, most of the first members work in libraries, so there are sure to be some great recommendations. Librarians are great people, but just in case, here are some Group Rules:

  1. As Captain America says “Language!”. Let’s keep it clean and respectful.
  2. While discourse about a book is encouraged, respect the opinions of others. We all have different reasons a book made a connection with us and not everyone will agree. That is okay!
  3. Book links from Amazon are okay, but don’t try selling your essential oils and Tupperware here…that will get you blocked.
  4. No politics…things go down the rabbit hole too quickly.
  5. No hate speech or bullying.

This group is a work in progress. If you have ideas or would like to help moderate, let us know! Happy reading and check out the group! We would love to see you there!

What I Read: November & December

I know, I promised you that I would have a post up with my current reading list and thoughts…Well, hey, it is still December, right? So here is a combined post of what I have read over the past two months. If you want to read summaries of what the book is about, then head over to the Amazon link (if you buy the book, I get a small portion of the sale through my affiliate link). These are my thoughts after reading the books. Enjoy!Read More »

What I Read

Woah has it been a busy couple of weeks! I finally heard back from IRB that changes were needed on my dissertation proposal before the university would allow me to start my research. However, there was a deadline attached or I would have to start all over again with the application process which means another two months of waiting. Add to that, my teaching for my STEM in Libraries course was wrapping up which meant a mad dash to get all my grading done by the semester deadline. We took a week off for a mini vacation at my mother in laws…or what I affectionately call “Where Internet Goes to Die”. So nothing was getting done there like I had planned and it was hard for me to unwind knowing what I had waiting for me back home. But that is all behind me now! Everything has been caught up which means I can focus on writing again.

One of my previous posts was about self care and being a librarian I realized I neglected to add something to the list: Reading! In the past three weeks, I have been reading some books due out for publication soon. So I thought I would give a breakdown of what I read and my thoughts. Enjoy!Read More »
