Well, hello there! And mind if I brag?

Well!  It’s been way too long since I’ve posted, but let me take a moment to tell you why!  I recently published an article on Readers Advisory for Public Libraries magazine,  titled "Jack of All Trades Reader's Advisory" for the Jan/Feb 2010 issue.  When it’s available online, I’ll post the link here.

I also have this year's women's fiction  "beach reads" roundup coming out soon for Library Journal... should be the May or June 1st issue, I think.  Will certainly post the link when it's available.  Here's the link for 2008's list (I didn't write this one, but it's still fab!), and the 2006 roundup.

I’ve done several presentations in the last month, Feel the Need to Weed for the Illinois State Library’s On the Front Lines conference, and Books:  The Top 5 of the Top 5 for the national Public Library Association conference.

And, I’ve snagged 2 kudos this year.  I am the 2010 recipient of PLA’s Allie Beth Martin Award, as well as named one of Library Journal’s 2010 Movers and Shakers

So you can see, some of this has kept me from posting on this blog!  I plan on being able to post at least weekly in the coming months – we'll see!
