Books As Personal History by Cindy Hulsey

I love books; not just the stories they contain, but the packages themselves. I like the weight of a book in my hands, the smell of the pages; I like the crisp sound the page makes as it’s turned and the beauty of the cover art. But mostly I love the fact that my books not only provide triggers for memories both vivid and hazy of the stories I’ve experienced vicariously through their words, but also make up a timeline of my life.

Are you a reading addict? Then check out this books and reading blog!

We have a blog just for book lovers called Reading Addict, which can be found under the Interests tab of our home page. Reading Addict’s collection of book recommendations come from Nick, Rebecca, Laura and other library employees as they share their latest reads and give their thoughts on the world of books. We’ve also recently added occasional video segments called One Minute Book Reviews to the blog. Whether you’re a hard core bibliophile or just a casual reader, you’ll want to give us a look!
