About Our Reading – 2013 #7 Looking ahead for 2014

about our reading 2013 3In December I asked our staff if they wouldn’t mind answering some questions about the books they read in 2013.  The answers have been posted in this blog during the last few weeks.  Today’s post is the last in the series, in which we look ahead to our reading for 2014.

If you have enjoyed the series and have any other questions you would like me to pose to the staff about their reading, please let us know in the comments section below.

2014Is there a book you have been putting off reading and are hoping to read in 2014?

Not putting off exactly but reading at an extremely slow pace: Middlemarch by George Eliot.  I like to read it when I know I will have a long uninterrupted block of time which does not happen too often. I hope to finish it in 2014! – Sonia, Readers’ Services Librarian

Perhaps about a 100 books – but who’s counting! – Brenda, Reference Librarian

The Stand by Stephen King – Stacey, Readers’ Services Librarian

11/22/63 by Stephen King: I need to finish it. – Amy, Children’s Librarian
