I know it's been over a year since I've posted here. But today is my tenth blogiversary, and since I started posting over here before I moved to Wordpress, I thought I'd post back here to say thank you to my first readers.

If you want to keep up with me (since I'm not able to double-post as I tried to do for a while), you can now follow me by email through Wordpress, on Twitter @alibrarymama or on Facebook if you know me personally, or you can add me to a blog reader if you use one. And know that I am still checking in over here, even if it's not daily and I don't comment often.

Happy reading to all of you!

More Catch-up

I keep thinking that someday I won't be posting to wordpress right before shift change or quitting time, so that I could post here in a leisurely and timely manner .. it keeps not happening. I do apologize. At any rate, here are the latest reviews:

The Shoemaker's Wife by Adriana Trigiani, an adult historical based on the author's ancestor's journeys to America.

The Odyssey by Homer. Translated by Gillian Cross. Illustrated by Neil Packer. The classic, with a vigorous new translation and bright, Greek-inspired illustrations.

Counting to Christmas by Gillian Chapman. Illustrated by Peter Stevenson. My family's favorite little board-book Advent calendar.

Circular Knitting Workshop by Margaret Radcliffe. Knitting geekiness at its best.
