Hey Boo, What’s New?

Hey Boo, What’s New?
I’m Back from Self Imposed Exile

Hey friends! I’ve missed you. I’m back after a month long sabbatical. I’ve had some issues develop during May that prevented me from blogging so I decided to take that time and get myself together. I’m in a better place now and I’m ready to share what I love with you! So, because I’m way behind, if I owe you a review or something, please sit tight, it’s coming. If you just wanna see what I’ve been reading, sit tight, it’s coming too.

 

The Cut with Pam Margolis

Meanwhile, I want to remind you that I have a podcast, did you know? Yep, it’s called The Cut with Pam Margolis and I’ll share the few episodes I’ve finished with you here. I love talking to people about books and I’m also discovering that I love audio engineering, but it’s a new skill that takes time to develop, much like skateboarding, which I can’t do. Can you picture me on a skateboard?

So while I’m getting all my bookish house in order for you, why don’t you download and listen to my podcast? I’ll post one every few days so you can catch up.

Here’s episode one with my friend  and associate librarian, Janeane Davis.  Her blog is Janeane’s World.

Discover Black History Month

February is Black History Month!  It’s a special time of the year to celebrate the many accomplishments that African Americans have contributed to the world. Why should you care about Black History Month?

  • You know someone who’s Black
  • You don’t know someone who’s Black (and you should)
  • You share similar experiences at Black people but don’t know it
  • You share different experiences than Black people and you can learn from those experiences
  • Black people are not just stereotypes
  • Their contribution to society is vast and varied
  • There are many cool books by, for, or about Black people
  • etc

I will highlight books for, by and about African Americans all this month. I’ll bring you my favorites, ones I want to read, and ones that we can learn from. Think of this month as a very long party. With cake, of course! You’ll never know what you’ll learn from reading a book; you might discover your next great, read.
