As someone who is uninterested in the ordinary, I like to read books that aren’t run-of-the-mill. I enjoy fiction that is quirky and unusual, and non-fiction that gets me thinking. Encounters with friends who have enjoyed my book recommendations prompted me to put together this blog as an unofficial Readers’ Advisory. As I began to think of which books I would list here, I realized that so much more could be added. A page about Book Art, for example. As a library and information professional, I thought that tips on caring for books might come in handy to the casual book collector as well.
So welcome to BookIdeas. Peruse at your leisure, and please send me any suggestions (for book titles, additional resources, etc.). They are always appreciated!
