I'm a librarian, actually my job title is Programming Librarian. I have a Master's Degree in Information and Library Science. Librarians today do so much more than promote literacy and a love of reading. We also work to build a community, encourage learning, and provide programs. My job is to create, develop, promote, and provide programming to meet the needs of our local community. So, I thought we could start our own BYC book club. It would be a great place for us to meet and greet one another, to discuss literature, to share authors, series, and titles of books you are reading. We could even agree to read and discuss a book together. I/we could offer suggestions for books on specific topics or for children, teens, seniors, or adults. I'm game for whatever! Everyone is welcome and I hope that we can help to spread the joy that books can bring! So to start things off I want to mention one of my favorite series-- Mercy Thompson Series by Patricia Briggs. Mercy is a shape-shifter, she turns into a coyote. She was raised by a pack of werewolves, and has friends who are Fae (aka fairies) and vampires. The book covers look really racy, but Mercy really isn't as portrayed. The series has is little profanity and it leaves much to the imagination so the content isn't what I would call explicit. It would be OK for older teens. As with any book series, I recommend that parents read the books beforehand so they can discuss any content issues with their child. So, who's next? Tell us about what you are reading.
