I've been reading ever since I can remember. When I was in elementary school, the children's librarian in the public library tried (unsuccessfully) to talk me out of reading a history of the United States. She wanted to redirect me towards books at my age level (9-12). I liked those and still like them (Alan Gratz's League of Seven is awesome!), but I had read most of them. Thus was born my interest in nonfiction.

I write six NextReads newsletters, and only one of them is about fiction. I love fiction -- mysteries are my default -- but nonfiction has a lot to offer. One of the things I enjoy about reading is noticing what a book shares with several other books. My TBR list is always, always, too long!  

Working at NoveList, I love that I get to immerse myself in books and share my interests with colleagues. You'll also see my name on recommendations in NoveList and NoveList Plus.

Sign up for my Navigating Nonfiction emails if you're looking for tips on promoting nonfiction in your library. I also contribute to Keeping Up with NextReads.
