For archived posts related to other types of programming, book reviews of middle-grade and YA literature, and commentary on other library topics prior to July 1, 2017, please visit my now semi-retired blog:After July 1, 2017, all posts related to library programs and commentary will be found here on this blog, Adventures In Storytime, and Beyond, but book reviews for middle-grade and up will be posted using Goodreads instead*:
I have not really used my Goodreads account much up until now, so please be patient with the transition as I get the hang of it. I decided this was a better way to do reviews, since I can at least give a quick rating and brief comment if I don't have time to do a full review, and the summary and bibliographic info are already provided, further saving time.
* I just discovered Goodreads can be set to automatically post reviews to your blog! I sure wish I had realized that a long time ago. In light of this discovery, I will make use of this feature to continue to post middle-grade and YA reviews on "Jen's Library Tales" as well as Goodreads, but it will be feast or famine, depending on whether I'm on a break from my MLIS program or not.
Unfortunately, Goodreads will only post directly to my personal Facebook page, not my professional one, but I was able to install a Goodreads tab to the menu, though I think it only appears on the desktop version. (https://www.facebook.com/adventuresinstorytime/).
