Questions About Books: 2012, Part 2

books 2012Syosset R and R tries to follow as many other book blogs as time allows just because we love books and we also like to see how others are doing it.  Recently we saw a blog post onThe Broke and the Bookish called “Julia’s End of Year Book Survey” in which a list of questions about books for 2012 were answered.  The list originated as a survey on the blog The Perpetual Page Turner where it is to be found yearly.  Syosset R and R has circulated some of the questions to our library staff and hope to be publishing the answers that we get back throughout the first half of January 2013.  So our thanks to both of the aforementioned Blogs for the inspiration.  Here’s the second installment of questions answered by Erica, Reference Librarian:
