lisa's reviews

Reading is the only thing in the world I am good at. A lifetime of reading, fifteen years of working in bookstores, and libraries, and an obsession with the written word makes me qualified enough to talk someone's ear off about books.  Now I am getting more ARCs than I have room for in the house.  Let me get back to reading them!

The World's Strongest Librarian: A Memoir of Tourette's, Faith, Strength, and the Power of Family - Josh Hanagarne I didn't like this book as much as I thought I would, but it was a decent read, one I will happily recommend to people, especially when they ask me what it's like to work in the public library system. I have a feeling that Josh Hanagarne is very funny in person, but some of parts of his humor seemed to fall flat on the written page. Still the things that ring true in his life jump off the page, such as his love for books, his wife, and his son. Parts of this book made me laugh, parts made me cry, parts bored me so much that I skipped over them.
